#1 Unread post by SBK15 » Fri Jun 19, 2009 11:48 pm

Well, after engine break down, I decided i couldn't stand not havin a bike anymore lol! So I traded my 07 DR650 in for a 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250 Brand new! I'm actually surpised how smooth this thing is for only a 250!
i'll post some pictures later, I got the Special Edition, Green with the white and balck strip on the side. I cant wait till its FULLY broke in, I cant go over 4k rpm till 500 miles

Its a great bike. Its hardly changed from the older model. Most of the changes are more cosmetic other than having to do with the engine. There are some minor engine tweeks but if its not broken don't fix it as they say. Other than that I've tried one out and they're a lot of fun. You can carry a lot of corner speed with that thing. I've heard the Euro models are fuel injected. Have fun with it!

Congrats, the 250 Ninja is a great little bike.

Just try harder to check the oil more often than what you did with the DR650 and it should hold up well.
There is no such thing as a bad motorcycle.

That's good. In fact, it should apply to any and all internal combustion engines you own now, or will ever own in your lifespan. Seriously.

Enjoy the new bike, eh. 8)
