Threw a Leo on the Ninja 300 Track Bike

Sounds pretty damn good in my opinion without the baffle in.

May end up tracking the R6 first as I don't know if the 300 will be where I want it to be in terms of suspension, brakes...etc...but we'll see

Doesnt sound too much like the 250 does, which is a good thing. Do a video with the bike actually moving. Sitting and revving doesnt do it justice I assume.

Why not track the 300? Is your track skill level beyond what the 300 can do stock? I thought the track was the reason you and your dad bought the thing.

Can't ride it .. snow and salt all over the roads. So, not gonna ride it till the nice weather comes back

Yeah, that's the plan. I was talking to Peanut_EOD (also on these forums) who races 250's and also has a 300, and he recommended at least doing some fork work to the bike but I also want to get brake lines and probably pads as I am not happy with the stock setup at all. Also, throwing the stock tires in the garbage immediately - where they belong and probably going with the Diablo Rosso II's. Since I've never been on the track, I'd have to assume the 300 is more than enough as-is for me, I just want it prepped better. Probably will give the experience a lot better. I don't think sloppy forks would make for a great track experience, though, I'm just guessing.

I've also gotta look into getting a trailer, so I'm kinda slowly taking my time to get up to where I want to be. Also throwing the idea back in forth about body work for the 300. So, it's a slowly but surely process. I think next year I may just make the 300 a full time track bike, and this year just test the waters (aka track) to see how I like it and if it's the direction I want to go. Considering it's been a dream of mine for a long time, just couldn't ever afford it, I can confidently assume I'll fall in love with track days like everyone else.

video is poor judgement in the sound, it sounds exactly like a 250.

probably jsut as annoying riding it around in the streets.

I dont know man, I heard an old box 250 w/no pipe, sounded a little buzzy but pretty mean

I could see how it could get annoying though, esp at the track

Goes from sounding like a dirt bike to a real nice growl, definitely was impressed to say the least.

All this is just ADVICE because at the end of the day, you can do whatever the FUCK you wanna do.

Whore your slut out
