Drove out west on sunday and bought a pair of CBX 250's Got home and found that they both run, i had checked they had compression and turned them over out there but the connection with the battery i borrowed wasn't great so we didn't get either of them started before I bought them. The red one is missing the front brake master and the white one has a snapped chain master link but otherwise reasonable condition. The white one had leaked a bit of oil in the trailer, seemed like it was coming from the airbox, odd... So I pulled the filter out and found a huge puddle of oil where the crankcase breather leads into the airbox, getting odder... Next step was to pull the dipstick so see how much oil was in the engine itself, unscrewed it and oil came gushing out everywhere so I pulled the sump plug and have left it to drain, I'll have a look at it properly at a later date. In the meantime the fairings have come off and ideas are slowly forming, most likely involving keeping the stock front fairing and belly pan and making up a nice cowled single seat, dropping the bars (they're clip ons from the factory so I can hopefully just mount them under the triple rather than above) and making some rearsets (once again the stock controls are already on rose jointed pushrods so I should be able to make new rods and weld the pegs further up the frame) If anyone here has owned one and has tips on tuning, mods or just general info that would be great, I'm fairly sure the engine is essentially the same as that in the xr250 but can't find much else about them.
