Yeah, I thought about that too. All I did to my wife's 2011 Ninja 250R carburetors was I slightly raised the jet needles. This helped the bike from sputtering at cruising speed. The TBR slip on flows very free causing the bike to have too little back pressure. By raising the jet needles I essentially richened up the fuel mixture at cruising speed.It has to be because of your mods, because the 300 compared to my stock 250 is a night and day difference powerwise.
Yup, I just realized that last night. The bike doesn't have any decals on it stating what model it was. Then again, neither did 2011 Ninja 250R.For the record (and just because I'm anal), there's no such bike as a "300R". The new model is the Ninja 300.
I have not ridden her Ninja 300. But, I have riden her 250R. I can only go by what she has told me.Thanks HRCH. It is opinions of someone who has ridden both the 250r and 300r that are important to many of us cause we want to know how much better the 300r is. So far it varies from a lot better to a little better (2 early reviews). Normally, the first thing you would notice is how much easier the bike starts with FI. My 2012 250r would have to crank over a second or so to catch. All my FI bikes start instantly. I assume it's the same with the 300.
Keep us informed about comparisions between the 250 and the 300. It is even possible someone might decide to buy a new 250 if they can make a really good deal. I can see one thing already. Seat ht. The 250 seat ht. is higher just a little on the 300, so somone about 5'2" might need to lower the 300 but not the 250. There's a lot to think about when buying a bike.
Yes, she will let me ride it. After all, I taught her how to ride. (with a lot of help from Cpt Morgan :violent:HRCH, ride them both too if your wife will let you (being very careful not to drop either), and let us know how acceleration, power, handling, etc. compare. Everyone wants to hear about top speed too, but I know you can't test that on a new bike. I suspect there are a lot of people that are trying to decide between the 2012 250r and the 2013 300. My dealer has a bunch of 2012s.
