    Hello, I am a new rider of the 250 as I bought a 2009 for my girlfriend who is just going through the learning process. I have owned a suzuki cruiser before but never a sport bike. My question is, what rpm's do you notice when you're cruising a long at 70mph/110kmh? I noticed mine was up...
  2. The New Ninja 250
    Okay guys, there's a bit of backstory to this, please bear with me. When I came home from Afghanistan in 2010, my wife REALLY wanted a bike, and she picked out the 2010 250. I knew very little about motorcycles and while I'm a quick learner and have the potential to be mechanically inclined, I...
  3. The New Ninja 250
    Hey guys, i'm having a really annoying problem. A couple weeks ago my bike started acting a little funny, after taking off from a stoplight I noticed it started loosing power. Sort of like if it falls out of second gear into neutral and jumps back in. It did it for maybe 2 miles and then decided...

    What is average speed to RPM ratio? I'm brand new to riding and have only taken the bike out on the street 3 times, but looking to see what I should be looking for in each gear. Everyone keeps saying to listen to the engine, but if one has never dealt with a manual transmission before it is...

    I've been riding for just 9 months here and have a 2009 250r that's developed a knock or rattle... it happens at low RPM at low speed when accelerating... when the engine is under torque. It seems to come from behind the lower left side panel toward the back of the bike... just in front of...

    Hi Everyone, So I took my bike to reputable dealer my neighbor told me about. I ended up just getting a basic service and wanted to see if that would fix my problem since my bike needed a initial maintenance anyway. It cost me $70. They checked all liquids, changed oil, lubed chain, new...

    Hi all. When I rev the engine there is a short pause and then the rpm's will increase. Then when I get off the throttle the engines stays rev'd up for a few seconds then slowly comes down. Any ideas? Thanks

    I have a 2009 ninja with 2700 miles on it. I bought it new and have kept up maintenance by the book. Recently, it has started to lose power and stutter (best way I can think to explain it) at around 7k and up when rolling hard on the throttle (accelerating quickly). It will lose power then...
