Maximum Revs for Honda CBF 250

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by max.honda, Oct 19, 2008.

  1. Hey all,

    I'm still new to riding bikes and am currently on my learners. I bought an almost new Honda CBF 250. It only had 750km on it when I bought it and I was told to take it easy on the revs whilst the engine was maturing (for lack of a better word). The bike has now done 1400km and I'd like to know to how many revs it's ok to take the bike. The red line is at 10,000 revs so I figure around 7,000 should be ok?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

  2. You can now ride it without fear of doing any damage.
    It will run out of puff well before 10k under load so I wouldnt be to worried.

    It probably pulls best at about 6000rpm? Max power is at 8000rpm
    Give up on 10000rpm.
  3. Hey Chris,

    Thanks for the information.
    Yeah, it seems to go quite well around the 7000rpm mark. I've been scared of pushing it any further but now that I know it's ok I'll push it up to 8000rpm and see how it goes.

    Thanks again for the reply,
