Returning to a Ninjette
What's up everyone. I'm not really "new" I'm more just returning to the Ninja 250/300...
I was on this forum some years and years ago when I had a 2010 Ninja 250 Special Edition.
I've had my M1 License for almost 8 years and this will be my 8th Motorcycle! Lol. Dont ask, I was moving thru trades like water at one point.
I recently sold my 2005 Suzuki Katana 750 and lurking the marketplace on FB for about a month I landed on tons of ninja 300's available. Went and looked at a 03 Triumph Speed Triple last night and decided to pass on it because the registration was way overdue and required a lot of money just for late fees with the CA DMV.
I had been eyeballing a 2015 Ninja 300 with 35,000 miles on it for weeks....first listed at 2500, then dropped to 2000... decided to take a look at it in person and surprisingly the bike is in great shape, few scratches here and there but no major damages or cracked fairings. It has like new tires, great brakes, good clutch action and rode well. It idles great, revs great and I was impressed how well it was taken care of. For mods it is all stock except for a Saddleman Gel Seat and a fender eliminator kit.
The seller agreed to $1800 cash and we shook hands! Tonight I go back to hand over the money and sign the title! I'm freaking stoked. This is prob the best deal I've ever made.
I plan on getting a rear stand and some spools for maintenance and probably get a slip on exhaust. My 250 had the Two Bros carbon and i loved that system.
