Honda CD250 - Not LAMS Approved?

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by slygrog, Jun 18, 2011.

  1. Hi guys,

    I'm confused about why the CD250 is not on the LAMS list for NSW. The lady selling her CD250 rode it in NSW on her Ls and used it to get her Ps. It's a fairly standard 250 that, to my knowledge, was used to train riders "back in the day". What am I missing here?
  2. From my limited knowledge, I'd say just check the rego label. If it says 'Condition LAMS' on it then you're good to go.
  3. I'm really daft, actually. At the very bottom of the LAMS list it says:

    All motorcycles :-
    - built before December 1960 are approved,
    - with electric powered engines are approved,
    - with an engine capacity under 260ml are approved with the exception of :-
    Suzuki RGV250
    Kawasaki KR250 (KR-1 and KR1s models)
    Honda NSR250
    Yamaha TZR250
    Aprila RS250.

    I'll leave this here in case anyone else has the question and it turns up in search. Oops. :D
  4. notice all these 250's are 2-stroke...
  5. Yep, 250s aren't listed on the LAMs list. All 250s are fine except those few 2-strokes.
  6. its a CB250 I bet
  7. The 250 race replica's were one of the reasons they brought in the Lams regs.
  8. No it's a CD250u actually, full limited number cafe racer styled bike by honda
  9. oops
