Hi guys, my name is Sam I have been on this form since October. Registered on this forum couple of days ago since I was unable to register before. Placed a deposit on Ninja 300 SE ABS on 2nd OCT 2012 then cancelled in Jan 2013, placed a deposit again in JAN but with different dealer,gettin my bike hopefuly by 25th JAN cant wait.

Few mods on my list:
1) make custom harness for low/high beam to work in both head lights
2) Slip on exhaust
3) Fender eliminator
4) tinted wind shield

I got told that Ninja 300 SE ABS is hard to get from factory, is this true? :confused:

Welcome. You will need to change the bulb to a diff type and the plug as well. The one on the bike is only a single and the hi beam is just a diff angle with the 2nd light. You'll have to let us know how it works for you.

mate, if you live in Australia and want to know whats going on with your ride, get in touch with Kwaka Australia

http://www.kawasaki.com.au/company/support

goto the bottom of the page and fill in as much info as you can. i did this a few weeks ago and within 5 minutes i had a guy on the phone who introduced himself as a head salesman from kwaka australia and apologised for the delay and told me whats going on with my bike

Hi Guys, Sorry about the delay again been really really busy with work. I did contact Kawasaki Support last time before cancelling my order and I got told over the phone "Unfortunately we are really sorry to inform you that we are not sure when we will be able to ship your bike to the dealer due to shipping delays but I assure you if you wait you are going to get a lot of bike for your money".

BikeBiz is the one I cancelled with because I was not getting an straight answer.

This dealer is located in Castle Hill called Hills Motorcycles, not that far, 14 KMs from Merrylands, So far they have been really good and have kept me well informed of whats happening. Received a call from them on Thursday saying that you bike is not here yet and we are now expecting it next week. I have referred my friend to them too and they looked after him really well.

My bike is not here, still waiting hopefuly I'll have it by this week. I'll keep you guys posted :)

I agree with you; as i would have hated the wait too.

Hope these delays are getting looked at by kawi!
