Question about 1983 Honda VT 250 F
You should be able to run regular or unleaded fuel with out any problems.The capacity is under 3 quarts. I do not remember the exact amount Something between 2 and 2.5 qts. Pour 1 quart in and then add carefully checking the dip stick so you do not over fill. Putting air pressure in the forks and shocks is not necessary. But can help the handling if done properly. Maximum pressure in the front forks is around 12 to 14 pounds air pressure. The rear is probably the same pressure. There is probably a sticker on the frame under the seat or by the side cover that tells maximum pressure. You do not need to put in maximum pressure. If you do you risk popping a seal. What you want to do is set up the bike so the front and rear suspension drop together when you bounce on the seat with the bike loaded. If you want a soft ride add some pressure only to the component that drops first.If you want a stiff ride put about half of the maximum pressure to the front and rear and bleed off pressure from there. I find it easiest to use a bicycle foot pump with a pressure gauge on it. It may only take 1/2 of a pump to get the pressure you need. Find the frame decal with the information on it and be careful not to put in too much pressure . Again , you will not need more than half the maximum pressure to get the ride you want and you can ride with out putting in any pressure (the springs in the shocks and forks will hold you up).
