  1. Low-speed low-side and tires

    Ninja 300 General Discussion
    Photo of damage attached. I was making a slow turn on a cold, clear day (Christmas, about 8C/46F). I was probably riding for 10 minutes before that. The rear end must have slid out. The bike did about a 280* spin by the time it stopped. My Yoshimura slider bent back and cracked the fairing. The...
  2. Bike taking a bit longer to start

    Ninja 300 Issues and Troubleshooting
    About 1600 kms on the clock. Started doing it at I'd say 600-700 kms. Basically, when the bike is cold (it may be 30°C outside, but the bike hasn't been ridden for the day), it takes a bit longer to start. It was starting really quick when brand new, now it tries to start, then stops and then...

    ECO Indicator Disappearing I did a quick search but couldn't find anything on the topic... Anyways, I've only had the bike about a month, 2013 Ninja 300. 1,800 miles on it, and today I installed short adjustable throw levers on the bike. I don't know if this is coincidence or causation with...

    Ninja 300 Issues and Troubleshooting

It was left outside with a cover over it and today, I went to start my bike so I could ride it to...

    Ninja 300 General Discussion

These being my first two days on a bike, period, were pretty brutal haha. So I went into this with no bicycle...
  6. Finally, the weather let me ride to work!

    Ride Reports
    So I got up this morning and it was 38.8 Deg. F. But the roads were mostly dry after all the rain yesterday. They were forecasting snow but I doubted it because the radar was mostly clear and the temps were higher than they expected. So I geared up and took off! This was my first ride to work on...
