Galfer Brake Lines for 2011 Honda CBR 250R

Front, Rear and Superbike Lines

2011 Honda CBR 250R non ABS with Suberbike Lines

We have brought in the new 2011 Honda CBR 250R, and I have to tell you this is a fun little bike! Here at Galfer USA we were excited to hear about Honda bringing back the CBR 250R, this is a great starter bike with plenty of pick up for the veteran riders. Lucky for us we were able to bring this bike in and lucky for you we enjoy what we do!

There wasn’t anything unusual about this set up; we removed the rubber brake lines and installed our high quality 64-Braid Stainless Steel lines complete with machined banjos and bolts. Pretty cut and dry, but that isn’t good enough for us. We rode the bike, we tested the lines, and realized this baby has some potential. We need Superbike Lines! Yup, Galfer is now offering our only single line Superbike set up for your Honda (and we are still giggling!!)

Our 2011 Honda CBR 250R non ABS lines come complete with the high standards you have come to know with Galfer. We have included our c-clips for routing purposes and instructions for a step by step guide to installing your lines. Our kits come with pre-positioned fittings for an out of the box fit, and as always we offer a limited lifetime guarantee.

Cole Crowley’s Race Report 10-1-11 Calistoga AMA Pro Flat Track Race

Hello everyone, today on October 1st, 2011 I raced at Calistoga speedway round 19 of the AMA Pro Flat Track Series. I had never raced at Calistoga so I was excited to see how the track was going to be and how my bike was going to work at this track. The length of the track was a half mile, I haven’t had much experience on half mile tracks so it was going to be interesting to see how I was going to do. I have only raced 1 half mile track back east when I was racing at the amateur nationals, and also I am on another borrowed bike, not really used to it.

In the first practice I was hitting the rev limiter really early going down the straight-aways so I knew that I was geared wrong. Also the bike wasn’t hooking up as good as I wanted it to so I knew that I also had to make some adjustments to the suspension. After the 1st practice I was 12th fastest out of my class. Now I had two sessions of qualifying to determine where I line up in my heat race. In my first qualifying I wasn’t hitting the rev limiter anymore so the bike was working a little bit better. But I was spinning up more than I was in the practice session. I ended up qualifying 14th in that session. I still had one more session to go do good and get a good lap time in. The bike was still spinning up some but I ended up qualifying 12th in that session of qualifying.

Now it was time for me to race my heat race. I had 1st pick on the 2nd row. I picked the inside line so that if I got a good start that I would shoot under everyone and be in the front of the pack. The guy ahead of me got a bad start off the line which caused me to break and messed up my whole start. I was about 9th going into turn 1. This track was really hard to pass on because when you would go into the turn it would want to just shove you right out of the turn instead of let you hold your line. I ended up getting around 8th place in the 3rd lap. I started to catch 7th place but I didn’t pass him until the 5th lap and I couldn’t make up any more ground on 6th place and ended up taking 7th place. I got the last transfer spot straight to the main, which made me happy that I didn’t have to go to a semi.

For the main event I had 1st pick on the 3rd and back row. I knew I was going to be hard to get a good start from the back row but I chose the inside for the start and hoped for the best on my start. On the start I went under a bunch of guys going into turn 1 and was running in about 6th place. One of the rides bikes blew up and they crashed on the second lap so they stopped he race and set up for a restart. I was a little disappointed that they stopped the race because of how good of a start that I had gotten. But now I was thinking that I might even be able to get a better start than before. The race started and going into turn 1 everyone kept a tight line instead of going wide which made it to where I couldn’t pass anyone. I was in last place going into turn 3. On the second lap going into turn 3 someone ran over a rock or a bike part that had to have been around the size of a baseball and someone’s rear tire shot it at me and hit me directly in the chest. It hurt really bad and was making it hard for more to breathe and I was having a hard time turning the bike into the turns. I passed a rider going into turn 1 and was now in 17th place I passed 2 more riders going into turn 3 and was now in 15th. I held 15th place the hole race until someone passed me in the last lap in turn 3 and I ended up taking 16th place.

Overall had a fun day at another pro race. Thanks a bunch to all of my sponsors for all of your help and support. I will be doing my next pro race at Pomona Round 20 of the AMA pro flat track series. See you all there.

Rider Profile: Nathan Mitchell

Nathan Mitchell sums up his career by saying, “I’ve been on two wheels my whole life. It just comes naturally to me.” The 27-year-old from Phoenix, Arizona, has been a motocross racer, a professional cyclist and, now, a roadracer.

Mitchell currently competes in CCS, CVMA and WERA events on his Yamaha YZF-R6, taking on the Superstock, Supersport and Superbike classes. Officials bumped him up to expert status after only two race weekends.

That kind of skill on two wheels is par for the course. Mitchell started racing motocross at the age of five. By the time he was 11, he was burned out and looking for something new to do.

“I started racing BMX, and it’s similar to motocross. That transitioned to mountain bike racing. To train for that, I rode my road bike. I got picked up by a road cycling team at the age of 13,” Mitchell explains.

Mitchell worked to graduate early from high school so he could launch his pro cycling career. He moved to Europe at 17 to compete with the US National team. These days, he says that most people don’t know “that I was a pro cyclist and living in Europe for five or six years, from the time I was 17, riding for a major US pro tour team. That’s like the MotoGP of cycling.”

Now that he’s retired from pro cycling, Mitchell works as a financial advisor and started roadracing two years ago. He says it’s just a hobby for now, but he’s been fortunate—and talented—enough to pick up sponsorship from major companies like Galfer, Pirelli, Ironclad Energy Drinks and Tractive Technology.

Mitchell uses his Galfer brakes to stop and take time for cycling, which is still a big part of his life. He uses road cycling and mountain biking to stay in top shape for motorcycle racing. On the quieter side, Mitchell says he also enjoys movies, music, and spending time with his girlfriend.

In his two years of roadracing, Mitchell has earned a lot of CCS race wins, and he’s recorded a top-five finish at every CVMS race he has entered. Mitchell excels on two wheels, and continues to prove it with every race.

Galfer Girl of the Month – October – Emily Clark

October’s Galfer Girl of the Month Emily Clark forewarns that she isn’t a racer or pro stunter. Instead, the 27-year old from Seattle, Washington, says, “I ride solely because it’s fun. I ride when I want to, and I really enjoy it, and I love the motorcycle community. It’s a tight-knit community, it’s challenging, you have to be aware of your surroundings, I love seeing what everyone wears and puts on their bikes: it’s all encompassing.”

That kind of passion alone makes Emily our kind of Galfer Girl, but her personal story is what really caught our attention. For four years now, Emily has served as a police officer. She decided to serve on the police force to follow in the footsteps of her father and brother, who are officers in her home state of Ohio. It was fellow officers who got Emily interested in motorcycles.

“I’ve ridden quads for a couple of years, and one of my co-workers had a motorcycle,” she explains. “I’d always been interested in learning to ride, so one year I decided to do it. I’m from Ohio and there aren’t a lot of motorcycles there, like there are out here.”

Before venturing out on her 2009 Kawasaki ZX6-R, Emily and her patrol partner both signed up for the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s rider course. That was a year and a half ago, and now Emily is a veteran of the Seattle streets.

Emily’s favorite ride is her morning commute. Not the one to get to work, but the one going home. “I work nights so I get off around four in the morning,” she says. “A lot of officers have bikes, so we ride home together. No one else is on the road, and it’s such a good feeling, all riding together.”

Emily puts on her Galfer brakes to do anything that involves getting outdoors. She especially enjoys hiking and running, but admits that her Kawasaki gets her out into nature, too.

She says, “We’ll take passes up over the Cascade Mountains. It’s absolutely gorgeous: winding roads, and it’s perfect mild weather in the summer. You can see Mount Rainier on a clear day.”

There’s another type of riding that has more sentimental value for Emily. “Every year they have a fallen officer ride, which is a big motorcycle ride and a lot of police officers do it,” she says. “It supports officers that we’ve lost in the line of duty. That’s huge for camaraderie in our field of work.”

That camaraderie Emily feels among fellow officers is that same she feels in the motorcycle community. She’s one Galfer Girl who rides hard and serves proudly.
