Thanks for the welcome guys. I guess I should make a new member post since I've decided to be an active member instead of just a lurker

Hey

Beautiful 250. I love the red ones. Garage kept and low miles too: very nice!

Did it come with the Area P exhaust system or did you add it? They're really great.

I noticed you have frame sliders on it, but you still have the stock turn signals. I can't tell for sure, but it looks like the turn signals protrude out quite a bit further than the frame sliders. If you do end up suffering a drop, those turn signals will probably hit the ground. I've seen a few pictures of crashed 250s on this forum where the side fairings look like they would have just been scratched up if not for the fact that the turn signal was forced into the fairing, smashing and cracking it. Just something to think about.

Finally: are you still running the stock tyres? I think the stock tyres on the 250R are IRCs. If you are still using them you might like to consider swapping them out for something better. The best "upgrade" I did to my stock ninjette wasn't the full exhaust, airfilter upgrade or anything else like that: it was the tyres. I first switched to Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres. They are damn incredible. The bike felt like it was stuck to the road with those things on it. I think I went through two sets of those and then later switched to Pilot Street Radial tyres. The Pilot Street Radial's are way better than the stock tyres and they last much longer than the Diablo tyres I've used. I think I'm getting almost double the mileage out of them than the Diablos. For pure performance I would choose the Diablos, but for value for money and good enough performance (for me at least) I would choose the Pilot Street Radials.

Thanks. The bike had the Area P when I bought it. The frame sliders were also on it when purchased. I have considered changing the signal indicators, but it may be a little while. Yes the tires are the original and I do plan to change them soon. They are past 5 years old but I have looked at them closely and they seem in good shape. The bike was on front and rear stands when stored. What mileage did you get out of the Rosso II's? That is one I have been strongly leaning toward.

I checked my notes. My last rear Diablo Rosso II lasted ~6000 miles and I had it on for a bit over two years before I had to replace it. By the time I replaced it, it had cracks, was quite worn down and had become a bit deformed due to the bike not being kept on stands to raise it off the ground. I repaired it a few times during its life too.

The front Diablo Rosso II tyre lasted longer. If I had to guess it was more like 8000 miles.

I've been through two sets of Diablo Rosso IIs in total and they both lasted a similar, relatively short amount of time. They were both amazing and confidence inspiring tyres.

I think I'm still on my first set of Pilot Street Radial tyres. They have so far lasted me 3 years and ~10,000 miles. They still look in good condition too, so I'm pretty sure I can get at least another year out of them.

If I had to recommend tyres, I'd have to begrudgingly recommend the Pilot Street Radials just because of just how durable they are and yet still provide amazing grip compared to the stock tyres. If you've got plenty of money to throw around or you just want the best of the best, then go with the Diablos! I remember touching my Diablo tyres after an aggressive ride and they would literally feel sticky like glue!

This is all just my personal experience. Take it with a grain of salt. I'm forever a nooblet.
