    Ninja 650R Accessories
    Olympia gloves are a big help, it is all I wear. I also found kung fu grips work really well.

    General Ninja 650R
    I have a garmin, and I put it in a ram mount aqua box, works great, especially when using one of their handlebar replacement bolt. Very clean easy to remove. I have added a 12 volt outlet to the meter surround and it is wired through the back.
  4. To frame slider or not to frame slider

    General Ninja 650R
    My bike has fallen over with them, saved the plastics from damage, and had it fall over from the wind, and again it saved the engine and plastics. They are designed to protect the engine and frame from damage in an accident. A side benefit is that they do sometimes protect the plastics if the...

    Daily Ride
    Yeah from what I gather he had pulled over a truck who was videoing and or photographing the group. Pepperspraying a group of riders could have been a huge accident, think of the multi vehicle accidents you hear of in the winter, except the riders and passengers are exposed and subject to being...

    Ninja 650R Accessories
    I have a the corbin gunfighter and lady seat on my bike. My girlfriend loves it. They do make a backrest with storage. The nice thing about corbin seats is that they are very comfortable. They are worth the price they charge. The other nice thing is you get to pick the leather. I picked...

    General Ninja 650R
    I put LED headlights on my '09 and the difference is amazing. The motor does vibrate a bit, but gel palmed gloves and softer and larger grips are a huge help.
  11. Today's Ride

    General Ninja 650R
    Softer fork springs they are rated for a rider over 200lbs. In time you may want to invest in a corbin seat, way more comfortable than the stock seat or you can have spenser at agreatdaytoride.com redo the padding in the stock seat. I'd also recommend softer grips like kung fu grips.

  13. Purchasing first bike this weekend!!

    General Ninja 650R
    How many miles are on the bike? How long did the seller say it was sitting? I'd start by checking the condition of the tires, see if they have any cracks in them, and how much tread is left. Did the brakes feel solid and steady when you applied them, no pulsing? As far as the chain goes...

    Ninja 650R Accessories
    It is worth it, I run softer springs and it is much softer, and much more comfortable, and riding two up is not a problem
