    I recently fell off my bike, it's a 2009 250 (not sure if it's an r) and am just now getting around to fixing it. When I try to turn it on I have to hold the start button for a few seconds until it gets to a comfortable idle or else it just shuts off. Under full choke it still idles very low and...

    This is my first post to the forum so bare with me. I bought my first motorcycle ('09 250r) two weeks ago and I love it. Lots of fun, great gas mileage, looks awesome. I'm only having one issue. After riding the bike for a few miles I get a very loud whistling coming from the gas cap. There's a...

    So I bought my 250r about a week ago. The day after purchasing it I noticed the gas cap was open. Tried to close it and it won't stay closed, just pops right back up. I think I just need to turn the key so I can close it and turn the key again so it'll stay closed, problem is the key I have...

    I've been looking to purchase my first bike. Looked at a 2011 special edition 250 today. Bike looks good and runs well except for some minor cosmetics. Of particular concern is a small chip in the gas tank that has rusted. I was wondering if this could become a bigger issue and how should it be...

    Looking for a gas tank. Let me know if you have one or know where I can get one. eBay and CL has a lot of new gen one but no decent classic ones.

    Hello, I'm looking for a gas tank for my 2004 ninja. Pref in good shape and if it has the petcock, even better. Looking for either blue, green, silver.

    I noticed gas leaking from the petcock after riding. I took the gas out, the tank off, and ordered a used one from ebay. I put it on the tank, still off the bike, with a little bit of gas and the damn thing still leaks. Is there some other reason why a petcock would leak? It's a 2008 so it only...

    Hey what's up guys? A couple of weeks ago, I decided to clean the carbs on my bike. After cleaning it really good, it was time to put everything back together which wasn't TOO bad until I got to the fuel tank. There are 3 hoses that connects to the tank. I know where the the one on the left...

    I'm building a café racer but the tank we have is rusty. So I'm looking for a rust-free tank with very few dents. Don't really need a gas cap or petcock. Doesn't matter what color it is. Thanks!

    I thought the information on this website was very interesting and educational. Much of the information many might have read or already know. However, as with any subject/topic dealing with different gasoline and additives, many will have their own experiences, opinions and expertise...

    Disclaimer: I am by no means "mechanically inclined" and relatively new to motorcycle ownership. That being said, I need your help. I took out the air filter to see if it needed to be cleaned or replaced but was not prepared for what I found. The air filter smelled and appeared to be...

    To make it short, the gasket on my fuel cap was stale and cracked, so it would whistle loud. I heard from many people and a couple of sources that it was a normal thing, and some say that the vent line might be pinched under the tank. For me, the noise would stop if I pushed the cap down a...

    I had it sitting for a month or so and now when I press the start button noting happens. If i pull the gas a bit and press the button then it starts no problem. Any ideas? Could it be Fi issue? Just to clarify this is the European model and its Fi 2009 model.
