  1. I would be interested if the sleeve sticks out the bottom more on the cbr300 cylinder to support the piston due to the longer stroke?
  2. I believe some of the early bikes weeped a bit of oil in this area. Here is an old thread
  3. David Silver Spares is a good online honda parts store in the UK.
  4. Thanks, I was wondering if anyone used anything else other than just tire irons. I always struggle and worry about pinching the tube, probably just bad technique.
  5. What tools do you people use to make getting the tyre off/on the rim easier?
  6. These bikes are pretty gutless in stock form. 200 miles is less than 2 tankfulls. I would try and buy my fuel from somewhere else, maybe try some more expensive unleaded and see if the symptoms improve. Also these bikes only make 20bhp. At 1/4 throttle is that a flat spot? or is that what 5bhp feels like?
  7. Looking at the diagram it is on the right side. Switch your indicators on with the engine off and you should hear it clicking.
  8. Looks like from a hose clamp
  9. The rally and 2017 crfl folding shifters have a rubber tip. The folding shifter from a crf150r has a knurled steel tip.
  10. Check your shock linkage, I stripped my 2017 when new and it didn't have much grease on the bearings/sleeves.
  11. I don't know if you can get a pumper carb for the 250? When I fitted a mikuni pumper to my 400 it made getting the front wheel up much easier
  12. I think it's only the rally model which has longer travel suspension
  13. Nearly double the price, and much higher running costs. Not the same class of bike
  14. Anyone else get a small oil weep from the oil filler cap?
  15. I can understand wanting to use 10w30 if that is what honda spec for this bike. But I wonder if each brand have a different way of measuring it, so not all 10w30 or 10w40 are exactly the same across brands (like the viscosity of fork oil) Honda used to have an oil chart in their owners manuals for you to choose the oil that best suited your climate. But it was confusing because who knows their average atmospheric temperature. Maybe it is just simpler for them to state a specific grade. Here is an oil chart out of a XR400R owners handbook
