  1. Hi all,

    Popping in to say hi, got my L's late October last year, already have some riding experience uo my sleeves so getting my L's was a breeze.

    Got myself a Red 2010/11 Ninja 250, need to rack up a few more posts before I can link pics.


    *** UPDATED POST ****

    I have a 2010/11 Ninja 250 (with the white face gauges), bought it back in Jan from a 56 year old guy who mainly rode it to the country and back, hence it had high Km's for a one year old bike (just over 7k on the dial). At first it did put me off with high km's but after finding out it's mostly highway riding. I was fine with that, knowing it hasn't been thrashed/abused, bike was like new :)

    Current Mods since owning the bike:

    - Carbs Shimmed
    - Air box snorkel Removed
    - K&N Air Filter
    - Kleen System Removed
    - Danmoto Slip On
    - Koso RX2 Dash with Digital Volt Meter
    - Universal gear indicator
    - Solo rear seat cowl (eBay knock off, DO NOT BUY from ebay, get OEM, very bad fittment)
    - 2-Way Pager Alarm with remote start

    Here are some pics:



    Photo was taken prior to relocating the gear indicator, at the centre it was hard to see while riding.


    The Koso Gauge itself changes to 7 different colours, and the digital volt meter changes from Blue or Red.


    Here is the 2 way pager alarm remote with remote start, product claims 5km signal but it's a lot less.
    I work on the 10th floor of a building and my bike which is parked at the front. My desk is right next to the window and my bike is just right down below, I get 2 signal bars out of the 3.
    Remote start is a gimmick, only issue is that you have to make sure you have the choke set all the way for it to start. Since I have a slip on exhaust, it's pretty loud, so after a few minutes when the bike warms up, the rev's start to climb to about 5k rpm which = Very loud. So I don't have the pleasure to wake up, remote start the bike and change into my riding gear without waking the whole neighbourhood.

    Welcome aboard. :)
  5. Thanks for the warm welcome.

    I'm up in Mill Park.

    Lets see if I can update my first post with pics.

  6. Ok, that didn't work :) Also deleted my first post.

    Ahh, I didn't see the quick message that says a moderator will need to approve my post with pics.

    Moderators, originally I have posted my first post with pictures, and then again in this thread, please delete the other post I have pending :)
  7. Yep you will need to wait for a mod of this section, either [MENTION=15799]hornet[/MENTION] or [MENTION=14639]smee[/MENTION]

    I think it is 5 posts before you can put up images, We have a Thursday night coffee night for Northern riders if you can make your way in to Northcote. :)
  8. cj's right, your post was moderated (not by me) for too many pictures
  9. Hi Hornet,

    Thanks for the heads up, yes I had 9 pics all up, lets see what happens.


    Thursday's catch up, nice, I'll see if I can make it, also read your post in the VIC events session.
