    i think you got water on your headers or rad, level out the bike and check the oil you probably have too much.

    I think your headlight fluid must have been low, once it lacks head light fluid cbr250r's tend to smoke from certain area's. I would try Clorox 10w40

    I usually add at least 1.75 liters of extra oil, especially when it rains or when its cold out. this adds an extra 1500 kms between oil changes, and my bike never steams in the rain.

But after i added the oil there was still smoke coming out the front but there wasnt any smell can it be still the engine oil like need more or was it just because of the rain and the weather
    I see you put a period after 250. Is that a typo? Otherwise, awesome post.
    What a retarded world. To much to list.

    They must have been quite large rain drops to get you stuck, I usually just drive right over them.

    I was riding in the really hard rain one time could barely see then it got all soapy then these giant brushes where whirling and scratched the **** out of me then got hit with a blast of air cost $8 true of a story as you will ever hear. In the end, I was spotless. And waxed.

    got stuck in the rain and got soaked but....Help

    Hey guys, somewhat related. I rode yesterday in the rain and I was wearing my regular leather jacket that I got from danier leather and my jacket is super soaked as I was out in the rain for over an hour. It's real leather and was wondering, should I be worried that it got soaked? I know to leave it and let it dry in its own but right now it feels kinda stiff and not as smooth as before (it's still wet).

    Just lay it flat and let it dry, don't use het, etc. Just make sure to treat it with a good leather treatment when dry.

    Thats what I do with my jacket when it gets soaked.

    It's on a hanger now. Is it better to lay it down? So far everything is dry except under the arms where not as much air can get to.
