  1. Pilot Street Radials or S20 evos

    Ninja 300 General Discussion
    I've been riding for a year on the s20 Evos that came with my bike (winter test edition), and they're beginning to wear down. I do a mix of moderate commuting, a few ~1000 mile road trips a year, and enjoy hitting the twisties for hours on the weekend. I'm looking for tires that have good...
  2. Tires that warm up quickly?

    Ninja 300 General Discussion
    Hi. In my country roads are pretty old. They do not offer very much grip. Good side is that tires can last forever, but bad side is that it takes forever to warm up your tires. My friend owns suzuki bking and currently runs Pirelli Diablo rosso 2. He said that those tires are worst he owned, it...
  3. Rode through Oil Wondering if Tires are ok

    Ninja 300 General Discussion
    I was riding and saw what I thought was water across the road (it's been raining like crazy so that would be normal runoff). However when I rode through I smelled oil. To test things I braked hard and the ABS kicked in on the front wheel which is abnormal. A few hundred yards later I braked hard...
  4. Auto Air Chuck

    Ninja 300 General Discussion
    This would have been nice to have these the past 30 years. Hopefully it makes it into production. .
  5. Pirelli Sport Demons or Pirelli Rosso II's?

    Ninja 300 Service and Maintenance
    I just got a 2013 300 (sold the Buell) and it has a rear tire that needs replaced SOON, and a front tire that shows more signs of age than wear. I was given a brand new Sport Demon front tire with the purchase that I will be putting on soon, the question is which rear to purchase? The PR2 seems...
  6. So many people wrong!

    Ninja 300 General Discussion
    Last summer, I started having the a wobble in the front end on decel from 70 kph. Go ahead, start the comments that I must have the pesky garbage steering head bearings and they need to be replaced with the All Balls. I had so many people on this forum try to drill that into my head.. but I...

  8. Stock config, tires: What to expect?

    Ninja 300 Parts & Accessories
    Hello all! I am going to get my Ninja 300 delivered in a few days. Do I have to be wary of what I get as the stock config? Especially tires etc.? In Germany the bike is setup to be ready to ride by the dealership. I just want to be sure they don't cheat me by replacing some stock parts with...

    Ninja 300 General Discussion
    How many miles before I should consider changing my tires?
  10. Rear Tire Question

    Ninja 300 Parts & Accessories
    My bike has about 4,500 miles on it, and the stock rear tire has plateau'd in the center. I'm only a few hundred miles from the wear mark, and have a question. I ride more sitting up (i don't tuck), and most of my travels are on highway...so i wear the center out a lot more than the edges. Are...
  11. Michelin Road 4?

    Ninja 300 Parts & Accessories
    Has anyone tried running these? I realize they're only available in 120&150 sizes, but im guessing the compound in the rubber would offset any detrimental effects the larger tire would produce. But does anyone have any real world advice?

    Ninja 300 Parts & Accessories
    I have been browsing this forum for about 8 months, and now I have finally decided to sign up :biggrin: So I have searched threads and found great info, I am just left with one question about tire sizing. I'm going to get the Battlax S20 put on with the 120/150 setup. I'm going to put the...

  14. Tires with good longevity

    Ninja 300 Parts & Accessories
    Hey coming up on 8k miles and looks like my stock IRC tires need replacing. I ride year round and commute on my 300. Saw some posts on the forum recommending Diablo Rosso II's, but my understanding is these will wear out much more quickly than the stock IRC tires. I don't ride too...
