View Full Version : My RS 250
05-02-2003, 02:45 PM
Just got the bike today. I put about 25 miles on on the back roads near me. Motor feels a little luggy below 5000rpm, Steer's a little heavy at low speeds. Handles like its on rails at higher speeds. I have to reverse the linkage to GP shift, not a big deal. Shifts a bit clunkie. The dunlops have to go. Michelins are for me. Wood craft rear sets a must. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The only time an rs should be below 5000rpm is when you're warming it up!!!!!!!!!! Cane the nuts off it baby

Why would you assume I don't like the bike? I like the bike.I've only had 25 miles in the seat. Just getting to know it and wondered if you guys had any suggestion about add on's. I like the GP shifting it makes more sense. Once you try it you will always want the shift pattern in GP mode. Try it!

get new rearsets, ditch the coolant overflow bladder, get a larger catchcan, switch to GP shift, get a new shock or on the stock jack up the ride height and drop the forks a line or 2. Make the oil injector cap screw a quick release -> drill a hole in the screw and use a cotter pin/d-clip/whatever instead of a nut.

When I first got mine, I rode it 35 miles home on twisty roads and hated it. Now Ive got a bit more used to it its grown on me. Wot a bike, and it gets better every time. Ive only done 400 miles on it in a year cos its a second bike and I just got new MOT today. Its gonna get a lot more use now Im starting to feel more confindence in the tyres
