    Great suggestion.


    Did they say how the swingarm dent happened? Inside looks to line up properly, but if you have a replacement, not an issue.

    No damaged paint on the frame. First thing I looked at before buying. This picks with the spare triples on. Looks correct. They came from a damaged bike as well. Part of the problem is the auction idiots moved it with a strap and fork lift more than once. Some of the damage they did. If the weather was better I would just drive it on the lot and see how it feels.

    is there a measured difference from the old triples? Say from the front axle to the frame?

    hey gvh, have you found time to check the triples? Like this thread. If that doesn't pan out maybe removing the tubes from forks and rolling them on a glass table - to check for straightness?

    With the new triples the app shows it with in spec. Better than the original ones did with the app anyway. I bought the complete front and side fairings with inner pieces, tail fender with light, Left clip on, side stand, speedo backing panel, one mirror, all new signals off kijiji for very fair price. Fixed clutch perch with parts from the SR parts bike,

    Still need to order the swingarm and left foot peg with shifter from QC. New battery. Need new main fairing stay and clutch lever form dealer. Luckily only $42 for stay. Still need lock set. or new ignition lock and have 2 keys. It will also need a new chain do to rust from sitting outside. I'm keeping an Excel spread sheet on the costs.

    When I called the dealer for parts pricing for the CBR it all ways ended with "we have that in stock" Headlight, fairing stay, signals every part ??

    Ok. I know have all the big parts I need. Just bought a complete 2012 rolling chassis with full wiring. Even has the lock set. Through in the good gas tank. This frames not street legal but fine for racing. It was rear ended. Fronts fine including triples, forks, clipons, rim and brakes. Unload it at work tomorrow and do some measuring.

    Not all that surprising to see high availability on replacement parts for a beginner bike. They expect them to be dropped repeatedly.

    It was true basket case box of bits. I'm working on another CBR250 with bent forks cosmeticly challenged but clean title. Enough to make to ugly ducklings.

    This seller had a complete set of scuffed black fairings with headlight and speedo. Also a motor with 4K on it.

    Are you building your own race team? You're going to have enough 250's to start a rental fleet.
