    I found a used 2010 Ninja 250R with 3,200 miles on it. The dealer is asking $3,899 for it. Is that a fair price? or should I ask $3,400?

    I want to buy a used 2007 ninja250 for 1600 but it has a salvage title. How much does it cost to register a salvage? Is it worth it to invest in this bike? Thanks
  4. First Bike / New Rider
    I have spent several hours riding my bike (08 Ninja 250r) around my neighborhood and have felt very comfortable with it from the start. My neighborhood is a large apartment complex with curves, intersections, large hills, parking spaces, etc. I have done very well with the 5-30mph speeds that I...

    I am registered for the first available MSF course April 20-22. My plan was to get my bike registered and insured on April 23 and then spend some time going out at night after 9pm when the roads are far less busy. I was going to ride to a large empty (at night) mall parking lot a mile away...

    Because of the apartments I live in I am looking to buy an alarm for my bike. I would love some input from other people as I am tired of searching online and not finding what I am looking for. I'll list below the ones I am looking at #1 Scorpio i900 Pros: highly rated, proximity sensor...

    So today marks two months spent riding on my first motorcycle here in NYC. Am I still a newbie? Gotta say, everything's been going good for me and the bike. Never dropped it, never had an accident, I'm a careful rider (just turned 40) and I am passionate about motorcycling. And learning to...

    On the highway to work this morning, going 65ish, I'm in 6th gear. For a little bit I feel like the bike was revving too high for 6th but I can't be certain.. Anyway, halfway through the ride the tachometer starts spiking to its limit and I lose power for an instant. I lay off the throttle and...

    So this season for whatever reason I've noticed that I've been missing my upshifts from 1st to 2nd a lot. At least once every couple of days I'll slap it into neutral and rev the crap out the engine on accident. I also felt slightly uncomfortable with the position of my foot and ankle when it...

    I purchased my 2001 with 2300 miles on the odometer. I put new tires, front and back. Changed oil, battery, and air filter. I rode the bike 34 miles to work and home (68 total) two days in a row. On the third day on the way home lost power, put it on reserve and made it to a gas station put 4.1...

    How is everybody? I am a brand new rider, just bought my first bike yesterday, an '04 Ninja 250. I am taking the MSF course next weekend and will be getting my M1 soon after. This forum was a lot of help for me to decide what I wanted to start out with. I can see myself eventually riding a 600cc...

    Hello, i heard that the ninja 250r has high rev while going approx. 65+ mph. I understand it is because this is a low cc motorcycle, but do you think this will have much effect on the mileage life of it?
