  1. So i've looked through the search function but cant seem to find anything...

    i'm looking for a decent used motorcycle dealership (obviously not Sumoto) that should have a few CBR250's ... i honestly have no idea about mechanics of bikes and wouldn't mind a simple warranty..

    Anybody know of place anywhere in Melb???

    Peter stevens but they dont have much of a range of 2nd hand/used bikes.
  2. sigh...

    anybody?? im dying to jump on my very own bike..
  3. where do you live?
    I like Mick Hone in Box Hill but I don't know if he has any CBR250's at the moment.
  4.  Top
  5. I'll let you in on a secret.

    CBR250's are shit.
  6. I Got my zx9 from spot on in elizabeth street and have done 100,000 plus ks on it in the last three years and found them ok to deal with.With a cbr 250 good luck finding one that hasnt been thrashed but im sure you know that,give them a ring and then haggle like shit if ya find one that ya like :wink:
  7. just curious, how much did you pay for you zx9?
  8. Too Right.

    I started off with a GPX250 that I borrowed from a friend for a month then I bought myself a RGV250. I thrashed that bike for 2 years and retired it due to a slipping clutch. I've still got it in storage. RGV250 is one of the best 250 bikes you can get - but they are banned under the LAMS scheme.

    See the list of bikes you can get on your Ls/ Restricted Ps and go test ride a few.

    If your taller than 5'5" the CBR250 will feel too small, low and uncomfortable.
  9. I've never dealt with these folk myself, but used to work with a bloke who gave them a good rap. He and two or three of his mates had bought bikes from there, and all were good.
  10. City West Yamaha in Hoppers Crossing typically carry a few cbr250's. If you want a hand looking through them at City West, let me know as I know the guys well.

    Edit: Err I just noticed that you already have a bike and this thread is a bit old.
