New to this, helpful advice abd tiips are appreciated :)

So I've been riding passenger for a few years now, and absolutely love the feeling being on a bike. I've never had my own And honestly have never operated one by myself either. I am 5'4 and about 105 lbs, and I feel like a 250 would be perfect for my size. That being said, which would be a better bike, a cbr or a ninja?

I've also picked up a pretty strong interest in stunting as well. I've been watching my buddys do it so much, and try to do tandems when ever I get the chance. I know Stunting is a big step, especially when you start right after you've started riding.. but Im a fast learner, and this is something I plan on puting time and dedication into. I know I can do it, just got to work really hard.

Now when im comfortable with my bike, and decide to just go for it ( which I will)

What would be the best stunt bike to get, with my size and weight being the way they are. And is it even possible to stunt out a 250?

With all this being said, id love to hear some advice and tips, I'm sure not to many people will take me serious, and some will probably discourage me. But I don't care about any of that. This is what I want to do, and I wont stop till I achieve my goal. Helpful information, and some supporters would be nice and make me happy

But if not, don't even bother voicing your opinion. Thankks guys!

I own a 250 Ninja and I know people that stunt out too. They told me it's a little harder to pick up for a wheelie because it doesn't have as much power as a 600cc+. But the upside is that it's soooo lightweight. My gf is 5'6" & she rode my 250 just fine.

You can ride wheelies. The bike holds itself up and is forgiving and cheap to fix. Buy a cheap used one and stunt it.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the imput. See I wana stunt I'm just done growing and can't gain weight lol, so ill prolly always feel comfortable on a 250.. since stuntin is what I wana do I can't see why I need to be able to go faster them 100 mph.. now I can understand clutchin up a wheelie, but what about all the other stuff I wana do. Like hair chairs and spreaders, or would that be crazy?

The 250 Ninja is by far one of the most versatile bikes around. Look around at some of the other 250 forums and the number of riders still riding their older model 250's all over the place, the iron butt riders, track racers, land speed racers, tourers even some off road. The 250 Ninja just about does it all, unlike some Supersports. If this is your first bike, it is the perfect thing for you to learn how to ride. Also the cost of ownership is way less than a bigger bike.

Honing your riding skills is really important and the 250 is hands down one of the best motorcycle for beginners to professionals alike. It's been in a class all by itself, so it's longevity is a testament to it's reliability and owner loyalty. Because of the new design the 250 Ninja has gained more popularity than ever and a whole new market.

Even though there are many who perform stunts with the bike, it is not ideally suited for it by virtue of it's design. Being under powered and lack of a structurally sound frame is going to make some stunts difficult (the engine helps provide structural support for the Ninja 250). A simple crash can twist the frame and bend the forks enough to technically total loss the bike. Someone will have to get real creative to fabricate a stunt cage/kit or Ninja 250. Frame sliders are made for it, but damage can still be done and the fairings for the 250 are not cheap. Various wheelies can be done, just be prepared to replace your forks seals on a regular basis. Because of the lack of low end power you may see your clutch plates wear out faster than normal as well.
