    ...im woundering what mods i should buy first:

    i was considering a horn upgrade, maybe tinted windshield, fender elimintor kit...

    Not sure depends how much i feel like waisting, also think im gona take the stickers off it.

    Woundering if anyone has heard the muzzy exhaust on it before, only reason i would want exhaust is so people could hear me better so they dont RUN ME OVER! :(

    Anyways let me know your thoughts....

    Get ready to have a blast. That thing weighs nothing and is a perfect beginner's bike. Good luck!

    LOL! i just called up geiko and pressive for a quote funniest shit every...

    Pressive acted like this bike was a all out race bike im like uhh this is only a 250cc beginners bike and she quoted me at 1500$ not to even cover my bike just other person! LOL! shes like "and will you be puting a turbo on your bike" im like WTF!?!?

    Gieko said she couldnt insure me b/c i 'mentioned' my bro would ride it onces or twice and he had 1 ticket, Fucking hell...

    But my main car insurer who seems like the only sain person in the world quoted me at 400$ a year full coverage!!!! :) (and she said it wasnt a competitive price)

    Here's what you should do with your new baby ninja...

    -Eliminate the fender. Don't pay for a kit. Just get a dremel or whatever and cut it off.
    -Flushmounts for the front turn signals. There are a set out there that are the exact size of the cutouts and will not show any holes when installed.
    -Short-stalks for the rear turn signals. Just looks better.

    I dunno if I'd do any "performance" mods to the bike. There really isn't much out there and they don't really do much for the bike. The main purpose of a baby ninja is to learn how to ride safely and then sell the bike for pretty much what you bought it for.

    Do you know where i can buy this stuff out? Its so hard to find mods for the 250R, iv looked all around...

    Also is their any slip on exhausts for the 250R? ive seen them for the 500R but not the 250 just wanted a cheap way to make people aware that im next to them so they dont run me over...

    You can buy flush mounts at just about any motorcycle shop or online. If you wanna see a large selection of flushmounts/short stalks, try tricktape.com, kneedraggers.com, or any of the larger online places. Expect to pay about $20/pair.

    My girl has a baby ninja. It's got the fender eliminated and a CF exhaust. I'll take some pictures of it for you...

    I think Cobra makes a slip on for the 250 but, imho, it looks like crap.

    Might also try a hacksaw if it's an ABS plastic. They make blades specifically for cutting ABS cleanly.

    muzzy makes a set, close to $400, its for the right side only, not dual, and it's regular sized, or you can buy a stock zx6 can on ebay and w/ some minor fabrication and rejetting, you're good to go

    A ZX6 exhaust on your ninja won't make it sound like a ZX6. Totally different engines...

    Sorry I haven't got you pictures yet. Been too busy. I'll try to take/post tomorrow.
