Question Twofiddeee

Anyone every done stunts on a ninja 250? I was told it was possible, but VERY difficult due to lack of torque and the balance point isn't good on the 250.

Just curious. I've seen the whacko on youtube but practically wanted to know if anyones every tried.

Not hard at all on stock... but gearing it would make the intial clutch up easier on you and the bike.

Basically, you can stunt anything just have to put enough seat time in on it.

It's possible, you might need a pizza pan sprocket on the back.

I would learn BP on stock gearing first then switch to bigger sprocket. Go -2 +10 maybe. Just remember sprockets don't make you any better they actually make you loop out easier

its better to learn bp on stock gearing first, then get a biger sprocket, maybe go -1 +11. Just be careful, sprockets dont make you darius240z, they can make you loop out easier.

Stock gearing is fine for 1st and 2nd gear stunts on a 250. I'm living proof.

it's not hard, i have a picture of my friend on his yellow 250 in a full barney suit doing a christ down cooper street in Arlington

he can do wheelies easy all it takes is a huge bounce and getting it to BP then you can rock it..


anything can be wheelied.

wow. I didn't know it was possible. Before i go wrecking my only form of transportation, you'd recommeend a 50-100 cc type bike to learn on first though right?

well you wont be going fast enough to actually destroy the bike in case something does happen...maybe some scratches and a bent pipe worst case scenario, but it would be better to start on something smaller

Smaller, but not too small - especially if you want to transition to a big bike. get something like a XR100, need a clutch, as the clutch is required on the 250. I've done several wheelies on my friend's 250. It requires a LOT of RPMS and 'da bounce'. 50's come up slowly, unlike the big bikes. not the case if you can power wheelie the 250 though
