Hi all. I'm a CBR250R owner, 4 year rider who saw a link to this site and thought it was interesting. Right now I'm busier putting work into my current bike to improve the performance than I am looking at new bikes, larger or smaller, but I still think the grom is a neat concept. That's about it really. I'm also an engineering student with multiple IT degrees. Not a lot else I can think to say. :)

Thanks. It's neat to see the way the modern motorcycle market is developing. It seems to be following the same pattern as the automobile market did from the 70s to 80s, just several decades later and without the ridiculous import restrictions designed to protect American manufacturers. At least afaik, I'm honestly not following the subject in that much depth :p Although it used to be that motorcycles in this size were a lot more prevalent, from what I understand, so maybe things are just being driven back to their roots by the improved awareness of the practicality of two-wheeled transportation that comes about when gas prices start making you look at alternative options.

welcome to the forum BH :) any pic's of the CBR? what exactly are you doing to increase performance on it?



I added a Zero Gravity Double Bubble Shield, K&N air and oil filters, the manufacturer recommended oil, a Leo Vince Evo II Full System, and a Givi Rack and Monolock tailbox. I also have a cigarette lighter charger hooked up underneath the seat, a helmet holder attached haphazardly to my givi rack, and some holes drilled in the airbox cover. Sometime this week my Swingarms should arrive so I should be able to change the gearing to 15 37 for slightly better speed and fuel economy, and replace the chain.

In the long term, I would like to get the high compression piston kit, a fuel controller, the sport cams, some turn signal mirrors, exchange the existing turn signals for low profile LED turn signals, build saddlebag guards and add saddlebags, get an aftermarket seat, add tankbags, and eliminate the fender. Following that, if I can figure out a way to do it, I'd like to add some rotopax fuel containers on the left side and a Kolpin gun boot on the right.

Nice! thanks for posting pictures of your bike :)
The LV exhaust was a great choise so were the other things, it's my favorite exhaust for the CBR250
