    Hi, I'm thinking of getting myself a 2 stroke 250cc bike and in my local market I'm limited to bikes from the 70s, 80s and 90s made by Japanese manufacturers. I have an interest in getting something like the Suzuki RMX 250. On paper it looks quite powerful for a 250. However before I go...

    Hello, I got recently just bought a 1988 Kawasaki eliminator. I’ve noticed that when I fill the tank (careful to not overflow), I’ll ride it for about 15-20 mins and then put it back up for the night. When I go to get on in the morning and I flip the petcock to ON position the fuel leaks on to...

    I'm looking to do an overhaul on my 2017 VStar 250 and I'm finding a lot of after market parts for the Virago 250 but not as many for the VStar 250. The bikes look incredibly similar in regards to their engine size, frame, and other things. I'm curious if the parts for the Virago would be...

    I have a off brand 250 chinese cruiser. The brake pads are done and the company that makes the bike and the company that made the brakes both dont exist anymore. I cannot find pads so i decided to try and find a whole new brake assembly so i can have something more common. However cant find...

    Have a buddy who wants me to switch out her ignition switch on her 1989 Kawasaki eliminator 250. The actual switch from Kawasaki is roughly $120. Not happening. :) So I was looking at universal ones and can't seem to find one that is a sure fire replacement. Anyone know of any universal ones...

    Hey there! I just bought my first bike, a Honda Nighthawk 250 '06 Half way through my ride(going about 60mph) I started slowing down and couldn't speed back up. Now the engine runs, you can shift into first and the bike will start to go forward a little bit with the clutch all the way out...

    I've been trying to post over on rebel250.com but their forums have been down for days :/ So I'm trying my luck here. This is the post I was TRYING to make there. "I've been around watching the forums for a while just lurking. Sadly my coming out introduction to the site is in Wrench Bending :/...
  8. First Bike / New Rider
    Hi, I've been looking to get a bike and the Honda Rebel 250 has always appealed to me. I am interested in its cruiser style, and the fact that it's apparantly so rookie-friendly. I was speaking with a co-worker about the Rebel, and he said that it was too underpowered to maneuver effectively in...

    After looking at least a hundred 250 cc bikes, I have seen only two that had over 10,000 miles. Mostly they had under 3000 miles, and looked almost new. A lot of them in the 4000 to 5000 mile range looked really ragged out. The ones in the 5000 to 10,000 mile range looked ok but worn...
  10. Sport Bike As First Bike
    I'm 16- just getting started in the whole motorcycle scene. I've signed up for my Rider's Edge class in late July and I'm really excited for that. I've been to the dealership and definently crossed out 250cc bikes. I'm curious about the 500 and 600s though. I'll get to try out a 500 at Rider's...
  11. Sport Bike As First Bike
    The Nighthawk is the exact type of motorcycle that I'm looking for... but unfortunately it's not available here in Canada. I love how it's more British / old fashioned style (rather than sport or cruiser). I'm looking for something like this, that is also small, low to the ground, easy to...

    OK so I posted this on craigslist: "Need someone to repair my motorcycle. I might just go to a mechanic, but I am offering it to craigslisters to see if I can get a cheap price. All I need is carbeurator cleaned and oil change. Problem is that the Ninja 250cc keeps shutting off rather than...
  13. Sport Bike As First Bike
    I haven't gotten a bike yet, but I'm in the market for 250-500cc bike to start me off, but I am unsure about the amount of insurance I should get. I don't want to just get liability, but I don't want to go super-over-the-top-crazy and break the bank. I'll be riding in town(small town with less...

    Hello everyone. I'm planning to buy my first bike soon. What do you think I can expect to get for around $1500-$2000? What mileage should I expect? I'm leaning towards a Ninja 250 since thats what my brother had previously chosen, I assume he did a good amount of research. I always wanted a...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this site and to motorcycles in general, so be patient with me please. I recently bought a 1992 Ninja 250 from someone locally. The bike only has 4000 miles on it, because between the previous 2 owners, the bike sat for about 5-6 years without being ridden. The bike...
