Smile Hey there! Just bought 9k miles '07 Ninja 250!

For the lazy people: TL;DR :: I just bought an 07 ninja 250 for $1100, bogs a little and has a few kinks with title and registration but seems workable. ::

For those that are actually interested, I just bought the '07 Ninja 250 about 2 weeks ago. Still trying to get it registered but so far so good. It just sucks because I go to school in CA and am currently working for a summer internship in OR, and need to somehow register my Ninja in CA soon. So, ROAD TRIP? Maybe, still filling out forms to see if I can postpone the smog requirement a few months until I move back for school.
The bike might have some carb or fuel line build up because it occasionally will die when I give it throttle at idle (if you think I am wrong tell me!). This is only usually on start up but has happened once or twice at a dead stop when already warm. Also, it seems a bit 'boggy' if that is the word at around 6-8k rpm. Tossed in seafoam with the last tank fill up and plan to repeat again tomorrow since just filled up again. Seems to have improved a bit though, this happens less often! Also has some dents, some dried coolant stains, and possibly a leaky seal right around the middle between the two pegs. Will post pics soon if allowed to by the forum!
If you have any tips, comments, arguments, or confirmations, please let me know!

-Jim

Anyone that is actually interested in my bikes fuel problem, here is a poorly depicting video of it! I need to take a camera out there in the mornings but I always forget It basically will idle ok (low until it gets warm) then when I give it gas or choke it wants to die on me

Seems like a good price besides the issue your having. I'm new so I don't know much about bikes yet :/
