mods for the old style ninja 250?

so i might be getting an 05 250. after a brief search online i havent found any mods other than lowering links and stuff like pegs and levers. im not worried about exhaust, cause thats already covered, but what else can be done to these bikes?

Put some better tires on her and take her to the track. Upgrade the rider before bike. O and Stainless brake lines aren't bad either.

the wheels are smaller on the older ninjas- i hear that the tire selection is pretty limited. what are the best tires for the older 250?
yeah, i saw some galfer ss brake lines earlier for cheap. looks pretty much like a must have.

when I had mine I found alot of carbon fiber stuff on ebay ie... mirrors, bar ends, clutch and brake levers, custom seats ect. gp to ebay and type in aftermarket ninja 250 and you'll find tons of stuff.

Muzzy is the only good exhaust(full system) for those and a jet kit is a must. The 20008's I would use M4.

Dunlop 501's or Avons are good tires. But you will need to raise the front fender to use them. Pretty easy to do.

Emulators and springs for the forks, but you have to get them done correcly due to the RT instructions a wrong. A Works Perf. shock too. Then you can start passing nov. on 600's at MSR. hehehe

04 ZX10 engine swap.....#1 mod for a 250!

I would say the tires, and suspension work. It's amazing what they will do to transform a bike. As far as power goes...I dont know about 250 engine mods.

You can replace the suspension with the EX500 parts for a better ride.
1UP on the rear for smoother highway trips.
Corbin makes a seat I think.

put a 12" extension on the swing arm and go with a 230 rear tire, then get that chromed all to and add LEDs. then you need to get some mad tyte paint scheme like torn paper or bullet holes to finish the scheme. you will be the pimpness of pp1.
