So far so good, but worry about maintenance after break in. Manual everything say authorized Kawa dealer but singapore we dun really have a service centre for kawa?

 

Evershine is the authorised dealer/distributor/agent in Singapore. Maintenance can be done at any reputable bike shops, not necessarily have to go back to agent. IMO, i dun really trust the agent to service my bike due to bad experience with them

i just placed a deposit for a black ABS model. on collection day, i'm wheeling it out of the shop and straight to the mechanic next door to ask about installing whatever sliders they have that can fit, as well as a set of steel-braided brake hoses.

 

and anyone knows what tyres available locally and from which shop? i read that it comes with IRC (forgot to check at the shop) and i have phobia with IRC tyres from back when they were on my TA150 ten years ago.

It's true: it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. Admittedly, though... It is MOST fun to ride a fast bike fast!

Although I'm riding the 2011 Ninja 250r, the IRC tyres that comes with it felt pretty good despite the bad reputation it has. Till now I have been using the stock IRC tyres and I would say it's still acceptable for local riding. Since the new Ninja 300 is using 110/70 for the front and 140/70 for the rear, not many brands are available locally (due to low demand) for that kind of sizing. At least tyres are a lot easier to find than the old Ninja 250r (110/70 front and 130/70 rear). I believe Bridgestone and Dunlop will have tyres that fit just that some shops might have to order from the suppliers 1st

any ninja300 review i read that mentions the tires all say "adequate but will be better with grippier tires". for tires, i dont quite like 'adequate', i prefer tires capable of a bit more that what i will encounter. i always fit road/track tires on my previous class 2 sports; the ninja wont need such an extreme tire but i'd feel better on reputable brand 'fast road' tires.

 

but it seems cannot find any in the exact OEM size. i enquired two tire distributors from this forum, both replied saying they only have 150/60 rear, one offering Rosso II and the other offering Sportec M5. there is a rosso II front in 110/70, but otherwise front i might have to go for 120/70.

 

even if i stick to the oem tires, eventually must change.

 

anybody experienced using tires of different size? the brands dun matter, i'd be surpremely confident wearing either ROsso II or M5, but the size difference worries me about how it'll affect the handling.

you can try your luck with unique motors... i managed to get 100/90 tyres for my baby cbr125 which is super rare and the stock size, made a special request for it and they brought it in the next day... normally the shops only stock 90 or 110 sizing...

eh.... where you heard my story from? are you one of the original CBR600RR group from here that used to meet-up and ride together years ago? coz i dun recognize your nick.

 

(your former nick 'Enjoy' issit? the guy i passed the TA150 english manual to many years ago? coz your animated smiley on cbr6 familiar).

 

but yeah, my cbr600rr slider was very much in mind when i decided first thing must instal. last time keep thinking sliders ugly lah, must drill fairing no good lah.... skali cannot make up my mind, dropped the bike and scratched the fairing

:faint: o_O

 

i looked thru 'net, found that kawa actually sold ninja300 specific sliders which looks ok-ok (as far as sliders go), but i doubt any dealer sells such a thing. another installed aftermarket cylindrical sliders which jutted out of the fairing and really ugly, but..... cannot lah, better that ugly thing protecting the bike.

 

As for tyres, i've decided to go for Rosso II with original sized fronts and 150/60 rears. ninja300 owners have confirmed that the front can accommodate 120/70 and the rear can accommodate 150/60 with minimal effects to handling. so i'm going for the rosso.

i just collected mine from S1 today, but now its at my mechanic so i have no reviews to share. note that last saturday S1/M1/Albert advertised the ninja300 at 12k machine price, which is 800 off usual price. they gave me the 800 discount today when i complained :cheeky:

 

yes there is black but i donno whether still got stock, definitely green is the common one. i have also seen the red one on singapore road. all are the single colours, as far as i know unfortunately we dont have the special edition dual colours (i wouldn mind a few hundred more for the green/black or red/black) or the white, which i would have taken on the spot if they had it.

 

the ninja sold by M1/S1/Albert comes from Evershine and warranty claims must go back Evershine. Infer from that what you will....

my original breakdown (before advertised discount) was for 12.8k machine price, COE of 1663, insurance 3PFT for >32years at 453, and GST, total came to 15.7k

 

then they gave me straight off 800 rebate, which meant final amt paid was 14.9, without interest coz i paid in full.

donno bout guarantor, i didn take out instalment plan.

 

note that i went S1 at ubi. and when they calculate, be sure to ask whats the starting point machine price. if its 12.8k, be sure to casually say "but last saturday new paper i saw your shop advertise ninja 300 got promotion 12k machine price..."

 

so ur downgrading from class 2 sports like me too eh? i've already decided that at this stage of my life, i no longer need the outright power of a class 2, especially when like you say prices for 600cc start at 25k and go all the way to 30k for 1000cc. i just couldn justify that kind of cash considering my current riding lifestyle. your '08 R6 was 21k otr? My former '05 CBR600RR was 18.5k otr....

 

my ninja still not ready from my mechanic. i have big mixed feelings, about whether i will disappointed by the huge drop in power that i'm used to, yet very hopeful that if the ninja performs well up to 120kmh (which is all we need for commuting if we're honest) then maybe i'll be very happy with this purchase.

btw, just an update.

 

my bike's delay at the mechanic was due to a problem with swapping out the stock rubber brake lines with steel braided lines.

 

ordinarily, this should cost high 100+ to low 200+, with pre-cut lines and connectors specific to your model available for sale. however, the ninja is so new that no pre-cut lines are currently available for sale (including around the world as i read from international ninja300 forums). hence, a custom made cut is required.

 

to make matters worse, if you're on ABS model like mine, the system is quite complicated, and the price goes up much higher. if i'm not mistaken, i'm the first ninja to ask for this and therefore the local brake line dealer is using my ninja as a record for future pre-cut lines for sale to ninja owners....
