No Ninja 300 subforum?

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Forum

I am interested in what people with the bike have to say. I ride a 250 and thinking about trading in for the 300 in a month or so if i like what i hear.

There is probably no subforum for it yet because it wasn't officially released until about 10 days ago. There are a few threads discussions about it that are active. Try searching Ninja 300 and you should find something that may help.

Here's one https://www.kawiforums.com/showthread.php?p=2760591

Don't think there should be a Ninja 300 sub-forum, as I feel it's similar to the ZX6R/636 situation which is combined into one sub-forum. Not that the 250 and the 300 are the same bike, but it may save some space here.

The last thing we need around here is another sub-forum that a bunch of people can use to ask the same questions over and over again just so we can read from elitists here to use the search function..over, and over, and over, and over again.

I think I am the only owner of a 300 on here, have any questions for me haha

Personally, I think they should make the 250 a 250/300 forum, since its actually still a 250 in other parts of the world.. The are similar, but not the same like everyone keeps saying... But i would say similar enough to make a 250/300 sub forum..

Yes CBSDEL, I have questions: 1) What is the oil filter no? Is it the same as the filter for the 650r? 2)Do you have to remove fairings to get to the spin on filter, and if so, is it going to be easy to do or a pain like on the 650r? 3)Does your manual say when the first valve adjustment is? Is it like 7200 or 7800 miles like on the 250r? I ask because that is a major expense because of all the labor involved. On the 650r it's 18,000 miles for the first valve check. I hope they extended it out on the 300r. 4) Is the intial break-in period like 5,000 rpms and if so, how fast is that in 6th gear? Thanks

The 300r's engine is the same as the 250r's engine with the exception of a slightly longer stroke and fuel injection... So I'd imagine they're not going to radically change the oiling system, valvetrain, etc.

And as far as the sub-forum goes that question came up a lot when the 2008 250r's came out and the forum does just fine as is. I don't imagine there to be a need for a separate 300r sub-forum until/unless they radically redesign the bike so it is nothing like the 250r's

I did read the 300 went to a spin on oil filter. I would assume it's the same as the 650 since almost all of Kawasaki's sport bikes and Yamahas and Hondas use the same filter.

Oh, that 5,000 rpm initial break in thing is complete bullox.
