Pillion seat has a nice big tear held together by duct tape
Rear cowl needs replacing

Damn, I had a black one too.

Have they risen in price due to the new LAMS scheme?

Get a Staintune muffler!

Cool bike.

How do you find it as a learner's bike?

Ive ridden this and a CB250 so theres not much to compare to there!


After doing a fair bit of research on the net and asking people their opinions on what are good learner bikes, it came down to this. CBR250RRs were too old and expensive and tended to break down a lot and had their guts thrashed out of them by their previous owners

Wise choice man!

It's a much better learner bike imo then the CBR 250!

I'm sure you can hunt down some cheap replacement items on ebay :D
