First bike

Discussion in 'Showcase' started by Brento, Jan 15, 2011.

  1. So i just got my first bike, an '09 ninja 250r with around 2k kms, it's in perfect condition can't find a scratch on it :D Now i just need to get my L's ): (Booked in for 22nd-23rd) so i can take it out for a ride!

    Just gave him his first wash thought i would throw some pics up ;)

    Also can anyone suggest a fender eliminator that would be good, had it for a few days and already sick of that 1 ft bit of plastic haha!


  2. Congratulations on your new acquisition! I myself just got my opens in QLD, and purchased a 2011 Ninja 250r - black though.

    It is my understanding that fender eliminators are illegal in Australia, you must have a rear fender that travels at least as low as 45 degrees upwards from the rear axle - however you can remove the extra large rectangle shape for plates and stickers. I may be wrong though.
  3. Fender eliminator = not worth the fine & will make it harder for you to sell in 364 days :). Of course it's only my 2 cents but keep it stock. Things like fender eliminators are pointless (and illegal) and you'll never get your money back on exhausts etc & on a 4 banger 250 they'll do nothing performance wise. Put the $$ in an account and spend it on your new bike in a year's time!!

    The new bike looks trick & you've done a good job detailing it. It'd put most new bikes to shame!!!

    Enjoy the ride buddy!
  4. The 250R is a twin cylinder.

    You can get what you need for a fender eliminator from MCAS, there's a shop in Auburn on Parra rd, just ask one of the blokes on the counter.
  5. cheers, might head out tomorrow.
  6. Gratz on the new bike. I too had a ninja 250r whilst on my P's and resisted the temptation to make any mods/upgrades to it. Each to their own.
  7. Haha yeah, I figure I'm keeping it for over 2 years so why not get rid of 1 thing
  8. Real nice shade of blue there, I soon hope to here tales of your outings once you have your course out of the way.
  9. Great looking bike. The fender does stick out a bit - too bad they couldn't make a tyre hugging mud guard that meets australian standards!

    Happy motorcycling
  10. It doesn't stop at one. :D
