Hello, Hope i've got the right forum... I'm looking at buying a CBR250r to replace the ZZR. But i'm a bit concerned. Basically, i don't want to buy a dud that is going to cost me thousands in repair costs when it continually shits itself. What worries me is the age of the bike...i'd just like to know how reliable they actually are, any problems, peoples experiences etc: It would be something i would be riding daily. The bike i'm looking at had a flat spot which the owner fixed by cleaning out the carbs but he mentioned they need a tune. Also...bike doesn't want to start unless it's given a handful of throttle? Is this normal? Long time to wait for open license and after riding the honda, i'm sold.
