  1. Ninja 300 General Discussion
    Rookie flub during the last session of the day cost me dearly. I steer back right a little early/a little too much and run on the curb. Front wheel hits a 2ft section of grass and then immediately back on pavement, down I go. Fractured clavicle, scapula, and an extremely mild concussion is...

    Hi all, I've been M.I.A. from here for quite a while but now i'm back!! On Jan. 18th, I rode with 2 buddies to The Snake and PCH. Around 4:30pm, I was rear-ended a truck, traffic halted, ambulance came, taken to E.R. for 5 stitches at the bridge of my nose. As far as the bike, the fairings...

    Hey everyone! Long story short my friend hit (and cracked) the bumper of the car in front of us going around 15mph, doing and endo and smashing his headlight assembly into the trunk of her car. Surprisingly his bike only has minor scratches, however the entire head unit assembly seems to be...

    Yeah didn't see that coming... So her insurance is paying for all of it 2,400$ worth of damage and repair It's at a shop right now but should I do most of the work and save myself money since its just cosmetic things? So pictures will show the damage but I had a couple questions for you guys...

    So, this happened while pulling into the underground driveway at work: I was a complete and utter idiot and pulled into the driveway waaaay too fast. That's what I get for being cocky. You can't see it from this angle, but there is a upward slope to the sidewalk just before the downward...

    Hi Guys, New to this forum and new to riding! I just purchased a 2013 Ninja 300 from a mate. The bike went for a slide on the track before it was mine but it was mostly cosmetic damage. I have repaired/replaced everything damaged on the bike and it now runs perfectly. The only thing left is...
  7. Ninja 300 Parts & Accessories
    Hey guys, I crashed a few weeks ago and in assessing the repairs the mechanic is saying it will cost $340 just to repair the left rearset (that's the parts price from Kawasaki, not labor). Literally the first link on ebay is for a SET of awesome adjustable black rearsets that only cost $200...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJqHM4MyoSU I spent my last two days driving to the Nürburgring Nordschleife and took two laps each day. My mate lowsided his Honda cbr 500r at the first day at his first lap. Left handlebar is bent and his left peg broke up, he is all right. It was in this left...

    At first, I am fine. Wore all my leather gear. Had an awesome ride today. Rode like 3-4 hours in the twisties and it was so fun :D On my way back home the roads became wet. I rode through a ride hand corner too fast (40 - 50 kmh I guess, but I dont know) and added too much lean angle. At the...

    I have a 2013 Ninja 300 that I just crashed yesterday. I was coming around a sharp turn, hit some gravel, fixated my vision on the rock wall on the outside of the turn and crashed head on into it. The front of my bike got all messed up. A buddy came by with a truck and we took it to a...

  13. Riding Tips and Techniques
    I think this is a great example to close-call emergency braking. Another reason why a camera is good for insurance purposes. I was looking around forums for motorcycle videos and came across this one. I guess that's how it is in first person point of view, pretty scary.

    I spent hours researching what bike to get (settled on ABS SE Ninja 300), I even phoned Costco's auto program to confirm a price. I have all my gear in the shopping cart at RevZilla. Insurance rates are checked, and Go Pro ordered from Amazon. Signed up for MSF course. Planned to take written...

    Hey everyone! I'm new here from California, but this isn't my first bike. I still own what's left of my old '08 Ninja 250. About 5 years I was in a pretty serious motorcycle accident, due to my own stupidity, and now I'm ready to hop back on and do it the right way. Long story short, I was...
  16. Crash Boom Bang
    I just crashed my bike two days ago. I was going on my normal riding route and was taking a corner just as I usually do. Did all my braking before the turn. Leaned and accelerate throughout my turn when I hit some white chalky substance on the ground and my tires went out of line and into what...

    Hello! I come in peace from assfault junkies, was given this forum. I am looking to replace all my plastics as a few are cracked. I need advice on what to buy from? I've only heard bad about aftermarket plastics, and that bugs me. I cannot spend 800 on fairings, there has to be some solution..
