    Hi Terence

    You mentioned new tires in another post. Very fishy with 9000km on a little 250. I bought a 2007 twister with 27000km on the clock and new tires. I will need to replace the rear soon at 52000km.

    Sounds fishy to me. I'd walk away.

    Yea they replaced tyres and chain and sprocket at 9k, my SR has 45k and the tyres are still good, only replaced chain and sprocket at around 42k.

    If anyone has any leads on twister for around 15k or so in the Johannesburg area, please let me know.

    I saw 2012 YBR for 17k at Randburg motorcycles but mileage is like 126k unless it was typo and its 12.6k. Going to look at it after work maybe.

    There's something I've noticed in the Cbf 250 workshop manual. I understand the bike is sold in Europe as a Cbf 250. On the the Cbx Twister there are some parts and hoses on top of the motor( The cover) which don't appear on the example in the Cbf manual. My mechanical knowledge about bikes is limited.

    I was just wondering why the top of the Cbx motor is slightly different to the one in the manual. Does this have something to do with the regulations abroad? Just interested to know the reason why. Apart from the extra bits on the Cbx engine cover, everything else in the workshop manual seems the same as the Cbx.
    Cheers

    I will have to use that manual soon for the first time. Will service my CBX the Dec holidays.. Anyways I'm full time commuting now a days. Few weeks back I did my first calculations and my CBX gets 28.9km/l.

    Last night just when the bike hit one stripe I filled up. 13.32 litres and on that I got 410.6km.. + I skip traffic... My Figo gets around 11km/l.

    I must add I drive slower with the CBX than the car though but I get home faster due to the traffic areas. I do drive constantly at 90kmph on the 80 zone and 100 zone between towns so that obviously help
