Fuck euro spec shit. I'm sick of bikes being sold here being choked and uglified to satisfy rules that don't apply.

I'm probably more pissed at the tail pieces. Bikes used to have simplistic rear ends but now they have plastic shit sticking out 2 feet that require immediate removal. That's just shipping around trash and creating more junk for the landfill.

The tail pieces and horsepower restrictions aren't for emissions. A bike like the ninja 400 exists entirely because of graded licensing, which doesn't exist here. It's under 400cc so it's not large displacement for asian markets, and the engine is detuned to make it an A2 bike in europe. The ugly tail pieces bikes pretty much all have now is because the EU mandates their huge ugly license plate be entirely behind the rear wheel.

None of this matters in the US. You need the same license to ride a 125 scooter as you need to ride a hayabusa and some bikes have side mounted plates as stock.

A bike like the ninja 400 is only bought in America because it''s cheaper than something that's actually fast, not because you haven't done the half dozen tests required to qualify for the correct license.

I'd say that it's extremely good for noobs.

Some might consider it the quintessential beginner bike. You'd be hard pressed to find a lot of riders that didn't start out on the Ninja 250 or something equivalent to it like the Honda VTR250 or the like.
It's very forgiving in terms of handling, extremely light weight, and short enough to where you can feel easily confident on it.
Mind you though a lot of people will try to put you down off of it or disparage it by referring to it as a "glorified scooter."

I started out on much larger bikes and somehow worked my way down to the Ninja 250... Surprisingly I've had more fun on such a little bike than I did with all the past ones I've owned.

That shouldn't be too bad to deal with, or you can let the buyer deal with it. Just be up front, like user said.

If you can't source it anywhere, screw off the cap, bring it to a machinist and ask him to drill it out and tap a thread for universal schrader valve like this one ( riffraffdiesel.com/replacement-schrader-valve-fuel-injection-rated-1-8-npt/ ). Screw it in with some sealant and youre good to go.

yeah, easily. Cleaning a carb isnt that bad and its absolutely necessary if you want your shit to run right. take lots of pics when you take it apart for the first time. My recommendation is to take it all the way apart, remove all the gaskets and o-rings and use one of those carb cleaner dunk tanks they sell at vatozone. Put chapstick on all your gaskets and packings when you reassemble. Good luck!

Are you actively filling it in that pic? If it passes through a small filter before entering the oil pan it may foam slightly as air escapes from the holes.

They only do that because Americans thought it would be funny to actively try to traumatize the german people for a "never again" effect (denazification), and the germans really fucked up by taking it upon themselves to traumatize the UK for no good reason.

Honestly if you went back in time and shot hitler racism would still be normal and accepted, and the next "hitler" would be from the US, probably isolationist instead of hellbent on being caesar, and strongly in favor of eugenics with a strong aesthetic focus (because americans were historically ever dumber than the nazis and unironically believed blonde hair, blue eyes, and foot+ height = heir of atlantis), possibly pissing enough people off to warrant a war against the US called "the stop-sterilizing-people-for-being-5-10-asshole campaign" and annihilation of most of north America in nuclear war.

I've felt the rear start to give out a couple times when I'm riding hard, just have to let the bike recover, which it wants to do, and keep a level head pointed in the direction you want to go.

Then slow down because high-siding into a cliff made of limestone and prickly-pear sounds like it's sucks.

Emberburn

I've felt the front start to tuck over gravel. No idea how it righted itself, being a 10 year old squared tire with almost no tread left. Most of the time people just fall over.

Maybe, being so old, it slid for longer than a new tire would and didn't regain traction as violently.

Same. I just wish I could get some fancy track grade adjustable suspension, but with adjusters that went out soft enough to deal with long stretches of pic related comfortably.

Every damn naked comes with a shitty suspension and every just says "lol, respring and cartridge emulators bro". Not the same thing as my old sportbike that was just missing three or so clicks out from soft on the compression damping due to its permanence and cost.

not a bad bike by any means doesn't have the most power on tap due to it's small displacement.

The reason that cars have strict inspections and motorcycles don't is because most of the time if something fails and you crash the worst they'll have to deal with is scraping your body off of the pavement, whereas with a car you've got a few tons of steel behind you and you pose a significant threat to others, a sketchy motorcycle is more of a danger to the rider than to anyone else, not having inspections weeds out the idiots early on.

20,000 km on a 250 dual-sport last year, at least half of that was highway miles on knobby D606s. Is it ideal for highway use? No. But it is completely doable and worth it for how much fun lightweight dual sports are. They're cheap, great for beginners, and give you access to so many more places than a street bike will.

Go for it m8. 250 dual sports are an excellent/cheap entry point into motorcycling on and off road.
