I already hit the newbie section.
Just seeing if there's any Kawasaki Ninja riders out there?
Looking to pull the trigger on a ZX10RR 2019.
I have a gen 3 now.

I had a new black 2008 400 Ninja for a couple years. My divorced mid-life crisis bike. Sold it, so I would live a couple more years. People can't drive. That's all I'm gonna say about that.

No offense, but it doesn't help you rode a bike that couldn't get out of its own way, but yes, it's amazing the kind of shit one sees when riding.

This is the same (Original Old School) GPz900 Ninja configuration as I rode for 20,000 miles from new purchase



1985 KAWASAKI 900 NINJA
  • 114 CRANKSHAFT HORSEPOWER
  • WET WEIGHT 566 POUNDS
  • The bike that started it all!
  • Kawasaki launched the ground breaking 900 Ninja in 1985
  • Completely new and modern compared to the long run of the previous KZ and GpZ line
  • Fully faired body work hid a brand new stamped steel frame
  • With it’s 16 valve liquid cooled engine producing 114 horsepower, it literally ruled the streets. Not to mention triple disc brakes, monoshock rear suspension and anti dive technology.
  • Capable of 140mph and could do so with stability
  • Also famous for the movie Top Gun Tom Cruise riding one at breakneck speed!
  • This particular bike is almost completely stock and had only two owners.

Had the exact same bike in college. Could have swore it was a 84 but you know years go by so I am probably mistaken. Last sport bike I had was a ZX10. Cruisers and baggers for me now.

Yeah. It looked bad ass, but you're right, after I learned how to ride I wished I bought a bigger bike.

Handle like a razor, stop on a dime. I have roadraced and drag raced bikes of all sizes, and the smaller ones are more fun in a lot of ways. I laugh at people that laugh at them...

i have a couple zx-14r's in the garage.

I got a chuckle out of the top gun bike being capable of 140. Oh how times have changed.

I have the 1984 bought new, Puked tranny at 7600 miles. Repaired transmission back into frame 1986.
Never finished. Now that I'm retired time to restore it. I have all the original parts. Been in my basement seems like forever.
I bought a 1982 GPZ 1100, then a 1983 GPZ 1100 prior to the Ninja.
Still have 3 others, 2005 BMW K1200S, 2016 Kaw 1000 Versys, and a Grand Fathered 76 KZ900 with 800 miles.
Needs cleaned up, plenty of elbow grease and Never Dull.

When I first started racing, it was on an old skool lil ninjette (250). Figured if I tossed it down the track, I wouldn't care (lol which I did my first race weekend... definitely did not handle like a Gixxer 1000!!).
Gotta say, that little bike was stupid-fun to race... nothing like keeping it pinned 90% of the time you're on the track.

As far as a used bike, by 3 years or so old, might want to look at an R1 instead... it was THE bike to beat for several years!

You shouldn't be bothered with wasting time putting that back together, sell it to me.

A 800cc fake Harley lmao

That is not even on par with a girly 883 Sportster. With the time and money that went in to building that bike, they could have had a real nice Harley.

I give them credit for thinking outside the box though. Looks like it was built right and not a hack job.
