2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250r question

So last week i purchased my first bike, 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250R with only 2000 miles on it, i just registered it, insured it, got the title transferred to my name and got plates. Until i can ride i have been cleaning the bike and it looks brand new! I have one question, and hopefully someone can give me some more information about this. The tires on the 250R look so small and narrow, as this being my first bike how safe are these tires on the road? Maybe i'm just worried because the this is my first bike and i have never rode a motorcycle, sorry for my ingornance but helpful comments would be appreciated!
thanks alot,
mike

the tires are fine. I'd definitely not encourage you to put wider tires on it, especially on the rear.

They look thin to you because you're thinking of the huge 1ft-wide suzuki tires and such. Don't worry. The tires that are on your bike are the ones that were made for it

That helps ! And yes i was comparing them to the one foot wide tires , why would you not encourage to put wider tires on especially on the rear ? Thanks again!

Anyone have any other thoughts on this ?

is has a lot to do with engine power and weight displacement. The bike just isn't engineered for that kind of tire. It would mess up all sorts of things on your bike including suspension, acceleration, gas mileage, rpm's and others. I think it's impossible to fit a tire that wide on to the 250 also, I think you'd have to widen the swing arms. But even so, widening beyond what is under the standard widths is generally a bad idea.

Thanks for the information ! So these tires would provide plenty of traction on road and around turns ?

These tires are not only good for road and turns, but designed exactly for that. It's a very nimble bike which is great for beginners like us. Enjoy the bike.

Plenty of traction bud. To be completely honest the tires would would be able to provide more traction than you'll be able to comfortably use. Meaning because you're new to riding the traction of the tire will be a lot more than your comfort zone.

the guys are right. The tires should provide great traction and you can turn and lean about as far as you want. Of course, always turn with a safe turning radius so that you are able to correct if something is in the way.

If you're turning so aggressively that you're hitting the foot pegs, you might consider turning a little bit more upright..

But anyway, the tires will be fine! lol
