Ok brought " Dawn " home yesterday

Ok brought home my 2013 Ninja 300 yesterday afternoon
First of all i totally agree with the reviews
The front brake action feels very soft I am thinking it is for
new riders is there a way to adjust it? I really like a tighter feel.
Second that does NOT feel like a bigger 250 she feels like a
mini 600.
Ok this is wrong to say but that girl is a BEAST. I know you guys
are laughing about talking about 300cc but i swear that bike made
me glad I did not get a 650.
There is no lag like in my 2011 250r under 3k she just pulls. The stock
exhaust sounds great I may change it later but not sure i like the
brushed aluminum look.
But once you get her running she is ready. Totally differently personality
than the 250
I am really thinking of changing her name
Gonna go with Dawn Nicole and call her "Nia" my sons idea
what you think?

I don't name my objects, so i can't help there.

Soft brakes? - try replacing the breadlines with braided lines.

I can vouch for the sound. I was inside a dealership and it sits on a highway. A guy on a 300 went WOT pulling out of there and it sounded sick for its size. You would have thought it was something bigger.

Welcome to KF!
