I had the bike for 2 years and the only problem with it was the assembly. I did not check all the bolts and the chain ended up breaking. Have not had a problem since, runs great, always starts, and it has enough power for me. I am very happy with this bike. I just bought a second one (skygo/lifan 200cc sport) and it is also a very nice bike.

I purchased this two years ago on a whim, got warned that anything that cheap can't be any good. At first the transmission was terribly stiff, changed oil at 100 miles, still stiff at 300 miles change. Finally around 1000 miles it got normal. Adjusted valves at 600 miles, they were on the tight side! It has been dependable saved over $300. on gas, speedo cable broke used a universal one at auto parts store. Still on the original battery, broke a peg laying it down to avoid a car that cut me off. Some rubber starting to deteriate, but everything is working. For the money it's hard to beat with regular maintance and care this one's done just fine.

I own two LF250's and I've had no problems. You do have to be good with a wrench to put one together if you buy it over the internet, but it's well worth the hour or so it takes. I have de-baffled the pipes, re-jetted the carb and now the bikes make tons of power. If you're looking to spend as little as possible to see if the motorcycle lifestyle is for you or if you have a lady that wants to ride, then this is your bike. Have fun and be safe.

I purchased this Lifan 250 V-twin in November 2005. I had it shipped to the closest air terminal, picked the bike up, brought it home, uncrated it and assembled the front wheel and tire and handle bars to the front forks. The neutral safety switch was pinched off at the left handgrip. I ordered a new one and had it sent to me. Since it was winter (too cold to ride) I used blue "Locktite" on all nuts and bolts I could access. I removed the "dinky" turn signals, replaced them with Yamaha OEM turn signals I bought. I used the "mustache" rear assembly from a Yamaha 650 Classic, and the front light bar from a 2005 V-star 1700. This change gives the bike more "personality," and superior quality. I installed a pair of "Savage" leather saddle bags, and a leather tool bag that straps perfectly to the rear seat backrest. The shift lever and foot brake were very uncomfortable for my 32" inseam legs, so I purchased a forward control kit. This eliminated the problem and is now the most comfortable bike I have ridden (for its size) so far. I haven't had a moment's problem with starting or driving this bike. It handles great and is easy to maneuver, driving or pushing it to store in the shed! First gear is a bit torquey and I'm going to contact another reviewer to find where I can purchase a 38 tooth rear sprocket. I did a stupid stunt by filling the gas tank to within 1 inch of the top of the filler opening, put the bike in the shed (outside temperature averaged 90 degrees for 4 days) gasoline expanded, overflowed, and dissolved a streak of the clear coat on the gas tank! Overall I enjoy the bike, drive it everyday to and from work, and have not had any mechanical or electrical problems. A large number of the Yamaha Virago 250 parts are interchangeable. The owner's manual suggests 10-40 crankcase oil. I use Castrol 5-50 Syntec for easy starts and more protection from the heat caused at cruising speed and summer temperatures.

This is an awesome 250cc entry level street bike. Mileage is north of 80miles/gallon. Enough power to cruise the highways. So far had no issues however the bike is new though. Since it's a chinese model, you won't pay for the name brand and still get a lot more. Insurance is not expensive.

At my job, I park my Lifan 250 next to a Yamaha Virago 250 and people comment on hom much more chrome my lifan has. When I tell them I paid $1000+ less than if I had bought that Virago, people say "no way!". I say "Yes way"! Although comparable in performance, the look is definitly cooler on my Lifan. The ride is simply unbelievable. That 250cc V-twin engine has a lot to offer. An Irish LF250 owner once said that his stock bike could go as fast as 83 miles an hour. I do not know and I will not prove him right or wrong. All I know is that mine has enough power to easily take me from point A to point B using (or exceeding) the speed limits imposed on the surounding highways (up to 70 mph in my area) and thats plenty for me.
