      yes, no auto downshift! nice downshifts. I have an R3 and love to roll on throttle in corners with no fear of losing the rear. I too have stock suspension, I reset my zip ties on the front tubes to see if I'm maxing out the forks after my runs. Very good indicators that I can go faster, brake later, brake harder for shorter time/distance, late apexing. Catches a lot of bikes on corner entry and through mid corners..

      Wow, holy smokes that's cool! I bought a CBR250R ABS as my first bike a little over a month ago. Love it, love it, love it! I really don't push the bike, but just my abilities to get better. I work 30 miles from home, and in the mountains somewhat, so there are a few good canyon-esk roads. Its a blast, and perfect for me both in size and operating cost.
      Typically I get 72-83 mpg, but I've only put 2500 miles on it so far
      Thanks for the video, loved watching what my bike could do with a good rider behind it!

      Ahh, you pulled the fuse! Got it, I never had thought about doing that on my CBR if I did a track day. When I'm of riding the dirt on my 1200gs though, I just hit the ABS button haha :)

      +RCFlyBoy314 Sorry for the late reply, something funny is going-on with comments on this video. Indeed cool bike, much fun to be had. Thank you for the kind words. You too can achieve such control over your bike! This is an ABS model as well. I find it to be additional safe net on the streets, comforting. On track, I did disable the ABS by removing the associate fuse. Happy riding!

      +RCFlyBoy314 On the contrary, I've crashed in the rain with no ABS. That was due to me having insufficient skill, though. I'll take a vehicle without ABS over one with any day.

      Ever ridden on a moto-x track? You'll learn REAL fast how no-ABS brakes work. They're lovely.

      I hear you, but I just think people should be more concerned with finding hard fuel instead of worrying about detonation ratings.

      +Brandon P Yes, but he only mentioned octane. The higher octance stuff still has ethanol anyway.

      +crash86ed I would be more concerned with finding pump gas that isn't E10. You know what I mean? No ethanol = more bang

      i bet it was not on stock engine or electricity parts, but above all 1 cylinder is too pricey for that bike, i can't find the feel of a big bike on 1 cylinder and also the sound of one cylinder it's so unpleasant, its only an opinion no hurts feeling, but you done well as the rider and thank you for such an effort

      I used to street race my 1976 Triumph T140V Bonneville and I never lost in over 10 years. Still have her. But now as you know I'm riding my Honda CBR250 Repsol Edition. I feel that on the street the reduced acceleration and reduced top speed is a saftey factor if I ever get into a road race. Mostly I race the road and enjoy that a real lot. Also I obey the speed limit 99% of the time and the 250cc is still entertaining and safe at legal speeds...just the thing to enjoy my road carving passion.

      I once also used automotive coil over valve springs. You can even use clutch springs. Either way you increase ride height while using springs to do it. Heck any valve spring should fit. If they add to much height then you can drop the forks tripple clamps a little.

      I could do it that way but I'd rather have the springs and maintain the travel. I can't wait to get the rust off and ride.
