Since I'm in the states, I took a chance and bought the same 15T sprocket that wardy bought back in April 2015:  649-15 from PBI. And had the same problem in that the splined hole is too small for the crank, by around 0.5mm; way too much for even a press fit. Hard to think they've sold any of these that actually got installed. I've emailed the company but am not optimistic.

So I got away with this but can't recommend it. Turns out there was a lot of wiggling and jostling required to line up the wheel and get the axle back through it, and the bike nearly tipped over a few times. Next time I'll tie ropes to the handlebars to keep it more solidly vertical.

I didn't have to remove the caliper for wheel removal, but did have to for reinstallation because it was impossible to get the disk back between the pads while trying to hold the wheel lined up with the hole for the axle.
Hi chap, the first things I would check would be the bleedin' obvious ones ( If you haven't already ) - ie any connectors maybe come loose or possibly got water in them. I see you've got the 'F' model so this probably isn't going to be as 'easy' & straightforward as on a naked model. Hopefully it's not a broken wire which may be a bit of a sod to track down, but if everything has packed in I'd check the earth first.  The fact that the fault was intermittent at first would hopefully indicate a loose connection somewhere rather than a major electrical item breakdown as they just tend go dead and that's it.
I found this thread on here which may help - https://www.inazuma250.com/index.php/topic,1706.msg22542.html#msg22542
Good luck, lets us know if you get it sorted. 🤞🏻
Hi guys AND girls, sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I'm not good at navigating this site.
I bought the Inazuma back in March 22 and am so far delighted with its manners, fuel economy and general all round usability.
A few months ago, every now and again I was losing the LED display info BUT the rev counter was still working and thus I knew from that roughly what speed I was doing (as this bike appears to do about 8 and a half miles per hour per thousand revs in top gear), so there was little risk in breaking any specific speed rule.
HOWEVER...... Lately I've had times when despite running perfectly well, the LED Display on the dash disappears.  The bike (and engine etc.) continues as if all is normal BUT I don't know what speed I'm doing as the rev counter is stuck and whatever thousand revs it was on at the time the fault kicked in and when it does finally pop back up, it has switched to KPH (which is easy enough to change back to MPH, I know), so what is causing this please?
Thanks :)
Maintenance and Servicing / Removing wheels to get tires replaced
« Last post by Pickwick on Nov 28, 2022, 08.44 pm »
My old tires were both from 2014 so I bought new Pirellis. I have a Pit Bull rear stand but no front stand, so needed to rig up something to get by with. This may be a known technique but I didn't see it described in the forum.

I put the bike on the rear stand and locked the steering column. I used a scissor jack and a block of wood under the left fork and lifted about two inches, just enough to wiggle the wheel out; I did have to tap the threaded end of the axle with a punch, after it was unscrewed. Got the wheel out and put the axle back in (probably not necessary). Then I used a jackstand and another wood block under the right fork and lowered the bike so there's load on both sides.

I wish it was more stable but should be fine if I can keep from bumping it before I get back from the shop with the new tires mounted.

Nice one. Will have to try with tank on. Fortunately no charcoal contraption on mine.  :002:

I see this is about a month old, but I'll add my two cents.
I took the tank off ONCE, but just checked the valve clearances
again (right intake a bit loose) withOUT removing the tank.
It is quite doable and hopefully knowing that it CAN be done will
enable anyone trying to do it...to do it successfully.
Valve cover came out the RIGHT side of the engine.
I removed the charcoal canister & unbolted the coolant reservoir
to access the valve cover bolts.
Um, I should probably mention that I removed those chrome covers
above the spark plugs a long time ago, so that may have been a
factor in the ability to remove the valve cover without removing the tank.
I hope this helps.
Maintenance and Servicing / Re: Evidence of brake light recall?
« Last post by WaffleHouse on Nov 23, 2022, 02.34 am »
I got the recall done a few weeks ago. 
I tried a photo but it is many many times the allowable size so I can just describe it.
Remove the RIGHT side-cover.  One screw at the back edge will unhook it.
The cable/wire from the switch runs up along the diagonal frame tube.
The old one had a little green, I think, connector about 2/3 the way up.
The replacement has a big rubber boot around it.
I hope this helps.

Hello everyone!

Bucket list at 55 included getting motorcycle license and learning to ride.  Bought my 2017 GW250F in October and was able to get 1500KM before end of season.

Looking forward to learning from all of you.
