CBR150 parts links

Postby Bokonon » 06 Sep 2010, 00:22

I'm posting this just on the off chance anyone buys a CBR150 or knows someone who has. I told RK I'd send this info to him, but I thought I might as well post it for public consumption. These are links I've accumulated during the past 3 years that I've had my CBR.

The CBR150 is a great bike. It's far and away better than the locally made product in its class. It does have one annoying problem, though: parts availability. As long as you don't wreck it, you'll be fine. Normal maintenance items are available in Taiwan. It's just if you need something like fairings when it gets to be tricky. The bike was imported as a grey market model. There is no Honda network here. J Motors, which is where I bought mine, used to have a shop in (I think) Hsinjuang, but now they only have one or two stores in Taipei. I've gotten little things from them, but I haven't needed anything major for the bike.

J Motors: 02 2782 6638 or 02 2902 6008

I have a pdf copy of the English owners' manual. If you would like one, PM me and I'll send it to you.

For most things, you'll probably need to look overseas. The bike was assembled by Honda Thailand, and that's where most of the stuff comes from. If you have a friend there, that would be good :) If not, here are some places that may help you. Note that some of these shops have you email for a price quote and then transfer money; no shopping carts or Paypal. I haven't ordered anything from any of the stores listed in this post, except wemoto.com in the UK. They are very good, as is the Royal Mail.

Another option is to get stuff that's sold as CBR125 parts. This gives you more of the world to choose from. It's the same bike, excepting some rather critical differences:

*The 150 head is a 4-valve with shim/bucket adjusters. The 125 has screw-type adjusters and 2 valves.

*The headlights are completely different, which makes all the plastic around them different, too. This part is also different in that it has holes for the Western turn signal stalks. The 125 also doesn't have fairing-mounted mirrors. However, it really looks like the 2004-06 headlight surround has the same shape as the 150.

Below the headlight surround is a middle fairing (one each side) and a lower (splits into one on each side). These (2006 and older) look like they are the same as the 150, but I'm not sure I'd want to send to the UK to find out.

*The bodywork definitely changed in 2007 and is nowhere close to the earlier models or the 150.

*The fuel tank seems to be the same, at least when comparing the 150 and the non-FI 125 (pre-2007). It looks right, and when I pulled mine off it looked and hooked up the same as the one in the Haynes 125 manual.

A Haynes CBR125 service manual is of some use. It doesn't cover, for instance, the valves, but you get most of the other stuff you need. It's not a perfect arrangement, but there is no service manual in English for the CBR150, as far as I could find. The CBR125 changed to fuel injection starting in 2007, so make sure the manual you get and any parts you order are for models before that. The Haynes manual specifies that it covers models CBR125R-4 to CBR125R-6, 2004 to 2007, and it states that "This manual does not include the fuel-injected R-7 model introduced mid 2007."


List of parts suppliers for the CBR125 is in this forum post:

If you know anyone in Canada, you can order 125 parts through Honda dealers there. Probably holds true for other English-speaking countries.

Wicked Links....Very Useful. Thanks a bunch.

In your photos i noticed you took the mirros off. What did you put in the mirror screw holes. I like that look, but I was thinking of putting some kind of cover over the holes. Do you have a close up picture of your mirror holes?

Not a problem. It actually helped me make some sense out of and organize the hundreds of bookmarks I had.

You do have to put something in the holes when you take off the mirrors. Those 4 bolts are the majority of what's holding the headlight surround on. I just went to the local hardware store (the kind with everything stacked to the rafters, that sells individual nuts and bolts) and matched the bike's bolts with what they had. They're just hex (allen) head bolts the same length and pitch as the the originals. I used some standard washers, although stainless or chrome would be better, but I wasn't going to push my luck trying to find that round here :bow: IIRC, they're 5mm with a normal kind of pitch. I'm sure you could make something fancier, but this works for me.

How to remove the bar ends:

And here's what I did with the new HVMP bar ends and bar-end mirror (just one; I never did look at the right side, and one makes filtering through traffic easier.)

I forgot the photo the first time. It's edited in at the bottom of the previous post.

I understand the "filtering through traffic" advantage of one mirror, but haven't you ever found yourself in the left lane (maybe just for passing a slow-moving vehicle) and wanted to move right, and couldn't see if somebody was coming up fast on your right side? I live in a rural area myself and often pass slow-moving trucks, and there is always that rare situation when a car tries to pass the truck on the right by driving on the shoulder. Had a few close calls - thank goodness for that right-side mirror.

I never say that what I do is good for other people (wish more people on the internet did that). It's probably a good idea to have both mirrors; I drove cars that only had one on the left for so long (USA) that I'm probably used to it. I live by the maxim "Don't trust motorcycle mirrors". I turn my head if there's any question about what's behind me.

I have found that bar-end mirrors give a better view than the fairing-mounted type. That helps somewhat. On the roads I ride on, there is never enough room on the right for what you mentioned to happen. They're mostly 2-lane, if that. For commuting (say, on a scooter) I definitely would like 2 mirrors, and I do have that on my scooter, even though I don't commute on that, either.

Resurrecting an old thread, but I've found an english service manual and that may be useful to someone.

I've downloaded a copy as well, PM me if you need it and can't get it from the site listed above.

Da Cham motors by Minquan Xi Lu MRT can order parts for the CBR 150, not sure how their price compares to ordering via website but they are very fast - got a new stock mirror in one day! Da Cham Motor Parts, 台北市承德路二段164號 02-2553-8781

J-Dream motors can also get stock parts for CBRs as well, they are located in Sanchung (Sanchong), they actually specialize in selling Honda CBR's so they should have a wide availability of parts. J-Dream Motors, 新北市泰山區新五路1段89之1 02-2296-9535

Hope this helps all the other CBR owners out there!
