and ninja 250s can be push started if you can push it 20mph to get it into 2nd gear..:BangHead:





No need to push it to 20mph. I push started one myself at 6mph on 1st gear.

that would suck if it did that out on the street if you were far from home.It seems like their known for just going out suddenly,without any warning they should make a space to carry a backup battery.

how can you say they sell batteries at Cycle Gear? They sell the same brands as the dealer (for less) and also some cheaper batteries that do well if you do the battery well. Just like a walmart brand battery.

my cycle gear battery is going on its 4th year, and its also going on about four years of always being plugged to my battery tender.
