My Ninja 250R by chi-u My Ninja 250R by chi-u
My new bike, the Kawasaki Ninja 250R :) This is my second bike.

Got it a few days ago and got my new riding gear yesterday. I got SP2 Alpinestars gloves, Berik jacket, white Alpinestars boots, Shark helmet and Sartso Killer jeans.

I have a Yoshimura SS slip on exhaust and an R&G Fender Eliminator/Tail Tidy installed.

I took it for a good fast ride up the Old Pacific Highway here in Australia [link] [link] (best rider territory in Sydney) yesterday. Was so fun, I think those are my plans for the next million weekends! : D

would you be able to help a newbie out? I wanna get either a 125 or a 250cc but with a 250cc I fear that it may be too much for me because I am 5 ft 9 and only weight 75kg but I commute on roads that go 100km/h and my old 50cc scooter just doesnt cut it...

Trust me, a 250 wold be perfect :) I'm actually about your height and weight too and it was perfect for me. I suggest you go and sit on a few in bike shops and see how you feel. 250s are powerful, but not powerful enough to throe you like 600 or 1000 would as a newbie. If you find you can touch the ground with both feet (doesn't have to be flat on the floor) on a 250 you wilp be fine on it :)

Getting mine today! Cept its red. You really got the line of the bike straight, almost makes it look like it got cropped at the middle. Gorgeous bike though :)

Cropped? haha what do you mean?

Yeah I am pretty excited, except I am not good at downshifting I have discovered, and I have killed it more than once when coming to a complete stop and trying to get going again :X I got pretty comfortable pretty fast though, was able to drive it to work today after my 1 day of practice.

I meant it looks cropped because the bike has such a straight line across it and you have it perfectly level so it almost looks like the top of the bike was dragged down over the bottom. I know it wasn't, but at first glace it kind of looks that way :P

Ohh I see XD I actually took the photo on a sloped driveway, and if I can remember correctly I rotated it a bit :confused:

I am enjoying it quite thoroughly so far. However you took the pic, you sure did get that line straight :) My only issue is the bike seems like it starts running pretty rough towards <10mph in first. I do not know if this is normal, or I need to engage the clutch at this point, or if I may have an issue with my bikes first gear...

Awesome :)
Have you ever driven a manual car? If so you will know that every manual vehicle needs to be shifted to second gear almost immediately after taking off. I normally shift around 8-9rpm so you should be fine :) if it persists worrying you, maybe at your 1000km service ask the mechanic to take a look ^_^

Yeah I am quick about shifting, and usually do it just after 5000rpm. When I am slowing down though I will shift back into first once my speed drops below 10mph, and as I creep towards my stop it seems to grumble. The person who owned it did something to the exhaust to make it sound a bit louder though so it could be just due to that too.

Ahh I see, sounds good then :)
When I bought my bike off my boyfriend, it already had the mods on it, being the racing yoshimura exhaust I never rode it or heard it with the stock exhaust, so it is a bit hard to say. But I'm sure its fine. Maybe its grumbling as you come to a stop because you haven't fully rolled off the throttle? You could still be unwillingly putting small revs into the engine as you grab the front break. Happens all the time to most riders without notice XD

One of the nicer 250Rs I've seen, most are the obnoxious green that Kawasaki has, this is perfectly balanced out! Kinda regret getting a Honda CBR250R, but I needed a bike with fuel injection :\

:iconchi-u:
chi-u Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah the black is nice, but to be hones I would have gotten the red or green if I could have *sigh* lol
I was gonna get the CBR 250 but, mainly because of the fuel injection for work, but it was easier to buy this almost new ninja off my BF and in the end, I'm happy, coz I know its a better bike :) What did you need fuel injection for?

:iconravenholme22:
Ravenholme22 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I need the good fuel economy to get to school and back, I used to use a giant v8 toyota landcruiser which took in gas like it was water, 12 mpg haha. despite the fuel injection though, my 250 always gets its ass beat by the ninjas on the highway, the only good thing the CBR is good for is getting up to speed from red lights, so you're lucky you got a fast bike lol.

Sick! My boyfriend actually just got the FZ6R 2 weeks ago after he sold me his ninja! They are so good. He just bought the juicebox, fender eliminator, and two brothers exhaust on ebay yesterday, so pretty soon its gonna sound and perform so much better!
