  1. Just got it this afternoon!

    Its an 05 Honda VTR250 that I picked up for 3950 with 24k on the clock.


    There are a few things that need fixing up here and there but shouldnt be too expensive!

    Pillion seat has a nice big tear held together by duct tape
    Rear cowl needs replacing

    Muffler scraped (MegaCycle replacement perhaps?)

    front mudguard cracked

    Needs new tyres
    Need to buy a new pair of mirrors (Im borrowing my dads atm)
  2. Hello welcome to netrider

    For a newcommer I suggest you always use search first before posting a question - better to resurface an old post than start the same again.

    I suggest this also for the reason that there are some out there that will call you "noob" in an insulting way for not searching first - pay no heed to them and give them no ammunition to use against you

    Having said that dont be afraid to ask questions

    Welcome agin and enjoy the ride
  3. Welcome Drewman. Nice bike .. maybe search some wreckers for those bits .. lotsa VTRs around so you might be lucky.
  4. welcome noob :) plenty of helpful people here.
  5. welcome and have fun!!! The megacycle option sounds good.
  6. Have fun with your new bike and stay upright.
  7. Nice bike, and you should be able to pick up a good seat from the wreckers. Have fun!
  8. Congrats and welcome to the 'new' You!
  9. Welcome and a good learner bike. Spend as little money on it as you can, i'll see you through.
    ps update your area etc, then others may contact about nearby rides etc and saves time.
