SINCE I BOUGHT A BRAND NEW 2005 KAWASAKI NINJA 250R!!!:) Brand new, never had a single mile on it :) How cool is that? Never had a drip or a drop of gas in the tank when they took her out of the crate. By her I mean the ninja... because... all bikes are hers but it can't replace the girlfriend (she's sitting next to me going "OH its a HER HUH? You ride HER all day huh?") haha!
Anyway, breakin process is 500 miles under 4000 RPMS and it is SO HARD to keep it there without wanting to just nail it once… BUT I like my cars and bikes to stay alive (as well as me) for a long long time so I’m breaking every part of it in just as it says… 0-500 miles - Under 4000, 500-1000 under 6000, another 100 after that and it’s golden.
However the valves need to be checked at 500 miles to make sure they don’t need adjusted, if they do, no biggie.
Gotta say, the ZX2 hasn’t felt the same since I got the bike Nothing feels to same as a bike. (for those that have never ridden one, you have to ride one to know how it feels, honestly.) I felt like a childhood hero today, saw myself on the road. Was going through some backstreet neighborhood in full leathers and everything and this kid was driving a little remote control car in the road and saw me coming so he ran to the sidewalk and drove his little car up there too. Soon as I hit the stopsign he had ran up to the stopsign to see the bike, so I stopped and turned my head, gave him a little salute/wave and revved the bike to the 4k I could a few times. I thought the little kid was going to freak, reminds me of how I was whenever I saw a bike when I was just a kid. I’d freak out every time I saw one. Knew I wanted a Ninja since I was just a little kid One of those childhood dreams, know what I mean? Coming true.
And then on a side note, this really fat girl in a beatup prelude met me at a double stopsign trying to hit on me, all I could do was shake my head in disgust as she attempted to sing along to britney spears “Toxic” with the rest of her oddball looking friends waying down the car. That was one stop that was really… ummmm… awkward. Maybe I should wear my future wedding ring on the outside of my gloves in the future? Or maybe just a really bright marker (silver preferably, gold is meh) and mark the outside of the glove. Prelude… scary girl… shudder
Got the black with green lining/trim. Here’s the leathers i bought
Anyway… on the subject of the girl in the prelude
hhahaha ok just kidding… but she looks something like that.
