Hi all,

I'll be picking up a 2009 250r in about a week or two pending weather up here in Toronto.

I have a 2011 cbr600rr and this will be my girlfriend's bike as she is just starting. Knowing her, I'll be doing probably all the maintenance work, etc and I know how useful these forums can be. I'll also be riding it from time to time as well.

As a side question. The bike is at 38k km or roughly 23.6k miles. It looks like the previous owner took good care of it and says did all the scheduled work. Is there anything I should watch out for? I already have the service manual but wantes to see if anyone could give me some pointers

Ride safe

A lot of people that see that many miles think It's a bad thing. The engine will definitely have some wear and may not get the same gas mileage that it did when it was brand new.

But as a new rider, it's not bad at all. Especially if all the maintenance has been done. Some things I would ask the guy are:
When was the last valve adjustment done? And were the carbs synced?
Have you replaced the chain or lubed it often?
Have the break pads been replaced?
Has the air filter been replaced?

I would think everyone knows about oil changes. Also, the fact that it has that many miles means it's carbs have probably stayed relatively clean, which Is a good thing. The tires could be worn, but 250 tires are cheap compared to other bikes. The main thing I'd want to know is about the valves and the carbs, everything else is simple maintenance.
