    That looks comfortable. How much was it, and where did you get it done?

    He's been making seats for about every bike I've had in the last few years from KLR's with back rests to "touring" Ninja seats. I've never even spoke to him on the phone, found him on Ebay originally. Just email him what you want and how you want it, send him your pan and in a week or so a new seat shows up at your door. This one was $195 but that included shipping back to me. That did not include me shipping my pan to him. Although all I did was buy a $40 ebay seat with free shipping and sent it directly to him so I could ride while he was making it. This thing has doubled my ride time before my butt starts to get sore, the extra width really adds support.

    I used to own a 250 and it was great. I have since moved up to an EX 500 but I still miss my little yellow bike. I bought it with some damage but fixed it up. Here is it after the repairs.

    Bought the thing in March with 6,000 miles and it now has around 11,500 miles. It is my daily commuter and I enjoy everything from riding it to lubing the chain to doing the valves. I am somewhat tempted to buy a second Ninja.


    Here it is a week after I bought it, ready for a 300mile shakedown ride.

    Thank you, I threw up in my mouth a little when I first saw the bike but the color is growing on me.

    I removed the decals the night that I brought it home, could not stand those decals :puke1

    alright, I'm a new guy here, but have been reading a lot and enjoy the posts I thought I would jump in and show off my new ninja 250. I've always had bigger sport bikes, my current fleet is a gsxr 750 and a Ducati 900ss. I picked this 1990 up on a trade. I've always wanted to try one of these. the most fun I've had on two wheels was my little 125cc Harley Rapido. I could be maxed out at the bikes limits and just barely be up to the speed limit. based on everyone else's experiences this should be a fun bike.

    With a larger (diameter ratio, not wider) rear tire, some sprocket change, pre-gen Ninja 250 is plenty capable of breaking the speed limit.

    Mine is happiest between 10-11k rpm at about 85-90 mph...lay on top of a comfy tankbag and just slab it on the highway. :rofl

    Liter-class sportbikes get freak'd out when you carry some much speed through the twisties and outpace them the tighter it gets. :lol3
