I got my 250L last month, but it didn't come with an owners manual. Can someone with one please give me the first couple of sevices and mileage? I am just over 800miles now.
Dealer cant tell me, and they say the owners manual isnt avalable seperately yet....
Thanks!

Did you buy the bike new from a dealer & he can't tell you when it should be serviced?

yup! They dont have a serive manual for it yet...I havent been too impressed with the dealer, they also pinched the tube for the rear tire when i took delivery. Got to ride home on a flat. AWESOME!

In that case, I would have rode it home, drained the oil and changed oil & filter. I would also check every nut & bolt on it. Was the air filter oiled?
Do an oil & filter change straight away, check the above and get a manual. Enjoy your new ride!

I'm at work right now so I can't check but, Mine did come with an owners manual. 1st service is at 600 miles I know. I thought it said oil changes at 8000 miles but even if that's true I will be changing way before then. I wont be able to get back on tonight and I will try to remember to come back and post some specifics for you.

Is that where yours was ? Mine was handed to me with my extra key and all my paper work. I wondered if it was suppose to be under there. :huh:

Mine was handed to me as well...just noting there is a spot there for it.

Wishful thinking that maybe the dealer had it there and didn't know it....shot in the dark..

thanks for the replys you guys! Did the oil change this weekend, and looked for the manual in every typical spot..but no luck.
FYI- I went to the other dealer in town and got my oil and filter, they gave me a spec of .73 Quarts for oil change with filter, but my bike took 1.6 Quarts, more similar to the spec for the CBR250R...for what ever thats worth

Yes 1.6 is more like it...thats what ours holds.

Best of luck...find some different dealers.............................
