    Hi all, I've recently built a Kawasaki ninja 250 shifter kart; The first time I rode it, it was a blast all for about 2 minutes then the clutch cable snapped... upon closer examination the clutch pickup point seems to be super high, it was much lower and actually worked properly prior to the...

    Hey there, so I've changed the oil in my 2009 Ninja 250 and also replaced the clutch cover gasket (after a mission trying to get the clutch cover off, read that here: HELP! Kawasaki Ninja 250 Stuck Clutch Cover ). After doing so I turned the bike on a let it idle, after about 5mins of idling in...

    Hey there, I just recently bought a 2009 Ninja 250r. I noticed when purchasing it that the previous owner had used some sort of "instant gasket" silicone like glue substance (idk what the correct term is) in replace of the gasket of the clutch cover. And as a result theres a small oil leak. I...

    Hi all, I'm currently building a Kawasaki Ninja 250 go Kart, I'm almost done, just wrapping up the wiring. This might sound like a dumb question, but what do the electrics that connect to the radiator do, not the fan, the actual radiator. Any help would be hugely appreciated, Thanks!

    Does the 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250 have a fuel pump, or is it gravity fed?

    Hi all, I bought this old beat up 2002 Ninja 250 as my first bike about 2 years ago and it ran well for a summer. Last year it had some trouble with idling and this year after sitting all winter (about 4 months) I found that it wouldn't start. I took out and cleaned my carburetors, put the bike...

    Hello guys, I just got my first motorcycle today(used 2011 ninja 250). The first time I start reving it up even after warming up, I have to get it above 2000 rpm very slowly before the throttle starts behaving properly. It idles at 1000 rmp and between 1000 and 2000 rpm, it starts kinda dying...

    Hey guys, I'm a brand new rider. I got a used 2007 Kawasaki Ninja 250r the a couple of weeks ago and literally went on my first ride yesterday.

    Well, I made an embarassing rookie mistake today... I got my insurance coverage settled, and decided to go take the bike out for a quick ride around the neighborhood. I had planned to stop at a church close by and practice some in the parking lot before heading home. So, I get out, go down my...

    I looked at a 2010 Ninja 250 today. Met up with the lady selling it, she was super nice. The bike was garage kept the whole time she's owned it, new tires, beautiful condition. She took really good care of it. She let my Dad test ride it, since he's more experienced, and he took it down the...

    So I am taking the BRC this weekend and I believe I am buying a used Ninja 250r from a friend. 1. What are some good brands to look for when purchasing a helmet, gloves, etc.? 2. Is it necessary to buy all the gear including jacket, pants, boots? Or can I get away with a helmet and...

    I am wondering if i should try to get a new bike, especially with most dealers having little business this time of year, or if i should get used. The reason i want new is because i live at home still and can pay it off without much effort, and will help build credit for me (I'm 21 BTW). But the...

    I am buying my first bike within the next few weeks. I was originally planning on buying a ZX-6R until I read through all the forums with people warning others not to start with a 600cc bike. For once I have decided to listen. I am now getting either a 2008+ Ninja 250r or Ninja 650 as those...

    Hello fellow riders! Have been riding my new ninja 250 for 2 weeks now and im loving it! Seems that every time I ride it, I learn something new :) Its truly a small, light, and not-so-powerful bike. I chose a small engine to start out safe, and learn the most I could without worrying about...

    Alright, I haven't been on here awhile. I got my 05 ninja EX250 about 3 months ago and have put about 1000 miles on it already. I want to sell it this winter and buy a gixxer 600 6k or newer. I have dumped the bike one time coming around a corner because a deer jumped in front of me in the...
