The bike you buy looks better than the bike you see...IMO.
Not a terrible price either.

Quite an engineering feat!

A Ninja 250 twin with a 4-into-1 header.

2007 Kawasaki Ninja 250 - $1900 (Chester, VA)



Very clean, Black with red strips, new tires, 4 to 1 header exhaust/after market, low mileage (7441 miles), new battery and a great starter bike! $1900 or OBO! Please call me at 804-852-3789 if you are interested.

How exactly is that an engineering feat and qualify as "dumbass"? That's a pretty normal thing.

4-1 header on a twin? Not very normal if you ask me.

AHEM ...

"Power for the Ninja 250R comes from a high-revving, liquid-cooled, in-line twin-cylinder four-stroke engine featuring dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder."


Two exhaust ports per cylinder ...

Two exhaust VALVES per cylinder do not two exhaust PORTS per cylinder necessarily make. I am not familiar with that engine but I did not think that it had two pipes coming off each cylinder even if it did have four valves per cylinder and this photo of the Ninja engine from that very link appears to support that. I could be wrong and often am.

Not as dumbass as some of the dumbassery that's been posted here, but this ad on the local CL caught my eye. Here it is, complete, and unedited:

Dual sport - $1200
Needs gas tank and battery and trotal wire

Yep. That's it. That's all the information you get.

That's a brilliant advert.

Anyone with more than half a brain immediately passes it by.

Guess who is left?

Come in spinners... :)

Should be "saleing my sport bike" and he misspelled "helment"

Just say "custome built", it would have saved a lot of reading and meant the same thing.


Idiot.
