perfect first bike. 300 cc fuel injected parallel twin. I sat on my co workers and its nice a light with a great seated position. Perfect to learn on and a round town hopper as well as a great ride in tight canyons!

Have fun, ride safe, and welcome to the forums!

+2! MSF all the way.

Enjoy the new ride, good on you choosing a 300CC for a first.

*edit: Just the pics and that's a sharp looking bike! I'm glad Kawasaki has gone away from the boxy 250s of yesteryears.

Hey now, leave me out of this!

Dude, don't worry about exhaust right now. Your best bet is to use that money on suspension rather than something that merely makes more noise.

Depending on your weight and how good of a suspension you want, you might be able to get away with the stock setup with a proper street baseline.

Your best $40-$60 spent is to get a baseline from a suspension-specific place. Dealer might be able to help you but suspension shops will know and help you better.

I would say unless your weight is completely off from what the stock is suppose to work with, then keep it as is with proper settings. Once you've logged plenty of seat time then look into upgrades.

I think stock suspension will work. Go get a baseline done and have them set it for street riding.

You could just ride it but a properly set suspension is a damn good bang for the buck.

I agree!

If you have money that needs to be spent, spend it on quality riding gear. A new rider will most likely not be able to get his money's worth out of suspension upgrades.

Those kind of upgrades will be be better bang for the buck when the rider gets some experience.

Ride the crap out of it and improve your skills, by the time you're ready to start spending $$$ on suspension and exhaust you'll probably be looking for something a little bigger anyway

I agree that MSF and quality gear should be at the top of your list.
You probably won't "NEED" to change anything, so do as Dan says and ride the crap out of it and have a blast!
