CBR250RR 1998 Fireblade

Recommended Posts

If its cheap enough than yes its worth it, however there are several sports oriented bikes available now that are often around the same price and only a couple of years old, not 20 years old

 

Back when i was learning it was the fastest thing we were allowed so i had one but there's plenty of better lams bikes available now, that is faster, larger capacity, better suspension, fuel injection ect

probably one of the fastest 250cc bikes out there, but they're getting pretty damn old, and pricey when considering their age and km. if u find one for a decent price then go for it, but for around 5000 you could get a second hand ninja 250 with low km and built within the last couple years, known for bullet proof reliability, and good to learn on

Theyre a cool bike but seconding what others said.

 

youll spend twice what paid for a clapped out one fixing it or if you pay more $$$ for a good one you could get a 08 Ninja 250 which is said to be the best learners bike avail at the moment.

I had a single R version when on my L's.

Very good bikes for learning mine was 89 and still went hard and had no problems with it. As long as they are in good condition they shouldn't loose much value. around 4k is good.

^ i could pretty much cut n paste that.

 

18000rpm give you a bit of a smile.

 

i think they are the smallest size 250s out there. so anything over 5'11" and you might feel a bit weird. i liked it because i comfortably had both my feet flat on the ground.

 

do you just want a learners or you plan on keeping it? for an Ls bike you can go the cbr250, but if you plan on keeping it a while have a squizz at some second hand ninjas i reckon

Dead serious.

No zx-6rs are definatley not...

But mine is.

And as said... It's going for sale soon:)

 

guessing it was a transport stuff up?

 

if that's the case it's still not legal, and in the event of a crash/clued in police/transport you will still get raped.

^^^i worried about that to however about 6 months ago I came off it at low speed pulling out of a driveway and the back wheel sliding out. Broke my collar bone and was off work for 3 months... Fully covered.

As for the bike I fixed it, all it needed was new fairings. Looks better now then it did before!

If your really interested in it pm me'

 

Oh n I got pulled over on it once just to be breath tested... He didn't say anything about it.

I have one at the moment.

 

I really like it. A few small things annoy me like the throttle but overall it's awesome.

It isn't overly smooth at times.

 

Sometimes when you want to ease it on, you get nothing then everything.

 

There is probably some adjustment and lubricating that could be done, havent looked at it yet.

if its not happening every time sounds like the carbs need a clean and balance

it can be dangerous to have the throttle surging, if you've got it cranked over and the throttle chops its not going to end well
