Should I get another EX250?

Hi all, my first motorcycle was a 2007 Ninja 250, I had fun with it but i ended up having countless issues keeping the thing running that i ended up selling it. My other bike doesnt scratch the same itch the Ninja did, so Im thinking about getting a similar bike or maybe another ninja. Should I get another 250? I dont know if it was just that bike that had problems, it left a bad taste in my mouth for them.

Most aren't like that, as far as I know. Mine has required only basic maintenance.

Mine has always been easy to live with. If you get ahold of one without problems it probably won't develop any under your ownership.

I bought mine new in February 2012. It now has about 69300 kms / 43100 miles. Picked it up from service today. Regular service kept it trouble free.
When I had fork seal leaks, 5-7 times, I was always able to cure those problems using SealMate ( https://sealmate.net/) of an "older" variant.
Probably need to replace the steering head bearing and the front brake disc soon.
The bike still works excellent, after having been driven in humid conditions around the coastal city of Trondheim, Norway, for 10 years, while I wasn't living in California (USA) or Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. Had a Honda XL 250R for CA, and a ZZR 1400 ( ZX14) for the autobahn.
