What's up sama! Bike looks good! Don't worry about the looks. I'll take mechanics over looks ANYDAY! As for advice, just take things slow! Don't be in a hurry to get out there and open the bike up. Take a riding class if possible. Not only will they show you the do's and don'ts but if you already ride it will help as a refresher. Also some insurance companies give you a discount if you do so.

Welcome, the more you ride the more comfortable u become. Get used to the machine before going crazy, it may only be a 250 but that's enough to cause some damage. For parts u can try eBay or amazon. Plus there is a million other part websites on the net.

Sportbikelites.com, bkmoto.com,motorcycle superstore ,I would have to check computer at home,I've ordered from the first two with no problems. An integrated taillight and bixeon projector lites with halos. Once you go around this forum a bit you will find a lot of knowledge about your bike and good sites to buy from.

Congrats. Good choice IMO. An older Ninja 250 in good shape is the perfect starter bike.

Chances are you will be able to get almost all of your money back when (if?) you decide to make a change - even if you add a scuff or two. That's not something you'd be able to say if you bought a brand new cycle of any kind.

Get all the gear and wear it. The MSF course is also a great idea. My son just got a 2004 Ninja 250 and has been looking at the cost of a MSF course ($175) as well. I think they could bring the price down. When I lived in IL the local Community College offered it for less than $100 IIRC. That's about what it should cost IMO.

Thanks jay well in Georgia there is no different where it's all same price but I didn't get it bc I already have my motorcycle permit what about the first 6 hours of the course I mean I don't really need it all what I need is my skills class that's all. It's weird the way they do these programs

A good source of info about older Ninjas is Ninja 250 Riders Club . The FAQ section is very good, as is the Technical section. Lots of traffic on the forums.

I'm a member there also, but beware - the group of regulars that hang out there aren't as "user friendly" as the ones here!
