Hi everyone - Billy from MN here I have wanted a bike my whole life and recently fulfilled my dream. Completed the safety course and bought a 2019 Kawaski Ninja. I was trained on a 250 Dualsport and the whole time I'm telling myself that my 400 will be way more powerful and way more fun. 2 months later and I'm trading my Ninja in on a CBR600RR because quite frankly I felt very underwhelmed. I don't want to get crazy or anything but I want to know that power is there in the event I ever need or want it. Anyway I live for learning so absolutely hit me up with advice or suggestions you have!

Welcome and happy riding!

Advice;

Get good (full) gear and be very careful.

Also, it's very easy to go "way too fast" on these bikes......

Remember, cage drivers don't see you at all.

Many thanks! I had a close call or two already on the Ninja - invested in the whole suit! I have 2 young boys that I want to be around to see grow up, so my bike will mainly for 'show' than for 'go'. Just planning on using it for my 30 mile commute in the very sad 3-4 riding months we get here in MN.

Smart to get full gear, 2 young boys is good motivation for safe riding.

Watch out, with cellphones, the cagers seem to have avery difficult task in staying in their lane.

Hi Tary I'm not sure where on the forum I should post this but can you tell me the name of the part that I've drawn the arrows to on the photo? It's like a black molding that goes on the body. I'm replacing the fairings and as you can see I need to replace this black portion as well but I have no idea what it's called to order it! Thank you in advance for your help - sorry I know it's a noob question.

Right Main step/heat guard assembly.

That's from page 3-25 in 2007-9 HS Manual.

Try that, should come up on eBay.....for your year/model.

Since your riding in full gear?

I ditched mine, aftermarket exhaust system (Arrow) didn't have lugs for mounting.

I didn't miss it, if your'e in full gear you'll probably have same experience

HTH!

Thank you so much, Tary! I never thought of the fact that it might not be necessary since I ride in full gear, and honestly now that I look at a new part, I don't think the old one is broken at all. I think since I'm going red/black with the fairings I might have to leave those on for aesthetic? I don't know - there's so much to learn here, and I love it! Thanks again!
