So I've been looking heavily into picking up a 250F again for next season. Since I like to maintain my bikes and look out for them I've been very interested in having the bike run as cool as possible and as reliable as possible. If you could add to my post or ideas, that would be awesome. 1 - distilled water and Redline Water Wetter for coolant. 2 - CV4 hoses 3 - Pro Circuit water pump/oil filter cover 4 - CV4 tank wrap 5 - twin air filter As far as breaking a bike in, I've heard generally breaking it in with regular oil then switching to synthetic is the way to go. I thought about running Maxima since PC/Factory Kawi/Makita Suzuki run them and they work well? One final thing I have to ask, how do traditional oil filters hold up compared to the stainless steel washable/reusable ones?
