Default 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.

Dam that looks good and actually sounds pretty beefy with the baffle out, in = no Bueno.

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.
