Question about 1991 Honda CBR 250 RR

1 Answer

Loss of power around 8 -10,000 revs in 3/4 gear

I own a 1991 Honda CBR250RR with about 30,000kms.. On my last ride the engine revs died in 3rd gear around 8 - 10,000 revs, Power dropped, revs dropped, pulled the bike over and the engine cut out. Took a couple of minutes to start it up. Went ok for about 1km and then did the same thing. When the engine revs dropped the engine noise changed to a hard metallic sound. Bloody confusing.

No compression all 4 cyclinders cbr250rr


I am no expert by any means but I had a similar problem. turns out the governor was turned down too low. Everything starts up but dies. Another thing it might be would be the choke. I have this bike and some times the choke gets stuck open and floods the engine.

My cbr250rr mc22 is slow to responed.


Im not sure, and i would only be able to diagnose if i could hear it myself. Was that a full clutch replacement, or just friction plates. Did they replace the clutch basket and install new clutch plates and springs. its possible that maybe the clutch bearing is going bad but thats a long shot at best. You should be able to tell if it is a clutch problem when its running good, giver all shes got all the way to red line and see if she slips or starts to make a noise, please do it safely, if that all checks out good then i would say you probably do have a fuel problem. Just need to put some Seafoam fuel cleaner/stabilizer in the tank 1/3 can two gallons fuel and since your going to change the filter just fill up the filter with the cleaner and drive bike around for at least 10 miles that should remove anything cloggling up the jets, get the fuel problem taken care of first, and then you can start to try and locate the squeal. make sure you got plenty of oil too. Hope you get her running right!

Pull the plugs and compare them to the pictures in repair manual, ie: Chilton's or Hayne's. May be a bad injector flooding them or an intake leak causing a lean condition.

Auto Transmission problem


hi do the simple bits first check the fliud level in the box see if its a clear redish colour if any other colour you have a box problem second when was the last time you chaged the boxes oil and filter a blocked filter will cause your problem then the box itself first clutch could be slipping put the box in first gear chock your wheels up put the handbrake on put your foot on the brake pedal start the engine and rev with your other foot and see when the car stalls it should be around 2500 and 3000 revs if its higher than this the clutch is slipping on that gear after this you will need to take it for pressure testing yates210456
