Hi all, I've been looking for my first bike for a month or so now and its been pretty much all i've been doing. So last night i was watching the football last night and got an sms from a friend who said he knew a bloke that was looking to sell a CBR250RR. The guy asked me if i wanted to come have a look at it right away. It was about 9.30pm but I decided to go have a quick look. I got out to this blokes house about 20mins north of Canberra and it turned out I went to school with him. Hadnt seen him for a fair while so I stayed out and had a beer with him and talked about he old school days (not that long ago). But anyway, he had it advertised for 6400. But since I knew him he offered it to me for 5500. It is a '98 Aussie delivered, tri-colour CBR250RR with 40,000kms. Immaculate condition never been dropped. After reading through this forum I had a fair idea of what problem signs to look for and I checked them all. Only thing I could find wrong with it was on startup it blew a bit of fuel out the exhuast. Can anyone tell me what would cause this, just carbies need a tune? I took it for a quick test ride and the engine revved nicely through the range and the gear box and clutch felt strong. Anyhow after pretty much falling in love with it straight away I remembered alot of people on here saying to always get it double checked by someone that isnt going to hump it silly. So I've got a mate from work checking it out sometime this week. So I'm finally gonna have my first bike. Going out this weekend to get gear and hopefully get on the road on Sunday . See you all out there.
