A 250 and a 125

Probably just another bike we'll never see here in USA, but we can dream.

2500 Euros = $3404
3000 Euros = $4085

I think mine did that, but with the front. Try stepping on the brake pedal several times, then take it out and try the brake again. The pads get pushed out when you take the caliper off.

I believe Honda changed that interval, after feedback from all the 1st batch of bikes proved it wasn't necessary. Not sure if your owner's manual will show that on page 35.

If you grab the chain from behind the rear sprocket, and try to move it front to back, it can move it just a bit, not real sloppy. I gave up a lot of adjustment when I swapped to the 13t.
