Hey guys ive been looking over on how to lower the front end but i cant find the answers to any of my questions, I want to lower the ninja to give to make it look more sportish so its not looking like im sitting in a chair maybe im wrong and thats what they do, i want the one by roaringtoyz and im thinking that if i install it the handlebars will be so high it will kind of eliminate the effect, i can touch the ground pretty good so im not lowering it for that i just want it to look more like a 600 and stuff. Can someone explain what lowering would do idk how i cant get it ive been looking over it for weeks lol


Maybe you guys have any suggestions on what i can do or buy to give it more of a sport bike look... i love the bike and would hate to get rid of it for that reason... thanks!!

I think that lowering Only the front will effect handling in a negative way, I wouldn't do it.. having said that your only option I would think, would be to raise the forks enough to mount an aftermarket set of clip-on's I'm not sure what the clearance issues would be (between bar and fairing full lock) but what ever floats your boat.. be sure to post up pics.. you might be a trend setter!!

If you're going to lower your bike, you can get the lowering kit from roaring toyz and it come with the handle bar risers/lowering blocks. I got my Ninja lowered and I bought the kit. I haven't used the handle bar risers yet though so I can't tell you on detail how that is. But the kit comes with it.

Lowering ONLY the front of the bike (or lowering the front more than the rear) will effectively make the bike handle sharper. I can attest to this personally.. The bike practically falls over itself in a corner. Makes things much easier and more precise. :)

I bought the WoodCraft 08+ Ninja 250 bars and lowered the front end 1.25" (approximately 32mm). This design pushes the bars about an inch forward of stock, which will get you hunched over a little more. One warning though, the stupid levers smack the windshield uprights at full lock, so much so with the clutch that it makes slow moving manuevers VERY sketchy. At speed though, I'd never be able to tell the difference because I never turn my bars that much.

You need Clip Ons. The risers will only sit you up more straight, while at the same time lowering the front of the bike. Basically, your hands stay where they're at and the front of the bike goes down an inch.
