I stayed away from all forums because it was just too painful of a reminder that I was not riding for awhile. Now that I will be in August, I'm BACK!!!

Amazingly enough, the bike still starts. (2008 Red ninjette) It has not officially been ridden since last year. The only thing I did was put fuel stabilizer and started it once in a while and let it run. I didn't start it when it was below 30 because I did not want to run a cold bone dry engine. It boggled in the beginning and stayed on choke for a few min. and was ok.

This is what I will do to the bike:
If there are question marks next too it means : should I do it?
Reminder, the bike starts up every time

Oil change
Spark Plug(s) ?
14T to a 15T front sprocket?
K&N Air filter
Clean Carb?
Check Air tires-what is the tire pressure suppose to be I forgot..?

Here are the cosmetics which WILL be done:

Hot bodies fender eliminator kit-So freaking hot! Expensive but worth it!
Reflective Rim tape
Seat Cowl (just for beefy reasons) I use the Rapid Transit Tank Bag-love it!
Tank Pad
Spray Paint windshield black on inside ?

Is ther anything I should be doing or missed? :eek:hcrap

Please any input would be very helpful.

Hi, glad to see you starting to ride the ninja again this season!

I'm new here ( i was google-ing hotbodies fender eliminator 250r and found this site)

Did you install this hotbodies fender eliminator kit yet?
I was just wonder how was the install and do it work with the seat cowl.
I heard stories, certain FE kit don't work with the solo seat cowl.

Just wanna make sure before I order mine.

In case any confusion, this is the one I'm talking about:

as for your cosm mods, i like them all except the painting the windshield black inside idea. Maybe buy a smoked one instead? just my opinion.

Yes that is the exact one I just got in the mail. After reading a few forums on installation and the instruction clearly states to have a mechanic install I became a little discouraged about trying to install it on my own.

But since I have until August. I might just do this on my own. So if when when I do, I will get back to you on this.

I think I'm going to take your advise about the windsheild. Any ideas on where is a good place to buy?

Thanks!

Seat cowl

I lost my bid on Ebay while watching XMEN in the threater! So I must look for another cowl. I think It is no issue with that fender eliminator.

I ordered the cowl from a bike dealership store (they order it through kawasaki)
it was around $90usd all in.

I'm sitll holding out on ordering the HB FE kit..
I'm not sure how the stock signal lights gonna fit...

but so far..i can't find any other kit for under $50 bucks
