I wanted one of these bikes the moment I saw one on the net. In fact I drove from Phoenix AZ to Long Beach to attend a motorcycle show so I could see one in person. I loved the bike at the show and bought this one in July 2013.
I can't seem to leave any motorcycle alone that I own and always try to mod it so it becomes the motorcycle that the manufacturer should have produced.
Here are the mods that I have installed so far:
Installed MRA windscreen.
Removed reflectors.
Installed a Yoshimura R77 slip on exhaust.
Installed a Yoshimura rear fender eliminator.
Installed Yoshimura bar ends.
Installed Yoshimura rear stand spools.
Installed a Kawasaki rear seat cowl.
Installed a Yoshimura exhaust hanger.
Installed custom ZX6R stickers.
Installed CF seat accent.
Installed CF air box covers.
Removed passenger pegs.
Installed Pro-Tek clutch and brake covers, front and rear.
Installed Driven gas cap.
Removed rear black sticker from the gas tank.
Installed CF Chain/Hugger guard.
Installed BKMOTO projector headlights.
Installed SSR CF headlight cowl.
Installed Michellin Man fork stickers.
Installed GPR Steering Stabilizer.
Installed ASV brake and clutch levers.
Installed Ohlins' rear shock.
Installed Yoshimura oil cap.
Installed SSR frame plugs.
Installed SSR CF sprocket cover.
Installed CF rear tank cover.
Installed LED tail light.
Installed Battery Tender pig tail.
Installed CF mirrors.
Installed header cowl.
Installed Tokico four pot caliper from a SV1000.
Installed SS front brake line.
Installed Galfer HH front brake pads.
Installed Hot Bodies color matched undertail.
Removed rear turn signals.
Installed a Corbin seat.
Installed CF faring panel covers.
Even though I have done a lot to this bike I still have more mods that need to be done. Some of the parts that I need are hard to source or are not available at the present time. I am searching around and will get all the mods done as soon as I can.

I love what you have done to your bike. But I want to here about how it rides. Don't hold back on long trips, because it will do well.:smile2:

Since I have a Pacific Coast and a Goldwing I have not used the Ninja for any trips over 300 miles. I suppose that you could do a long trip if you limited each day to 400 miles or less. You would also have to add some luggage and Givi has some available.
It does a surprisingly good job for what it is. It has a four and a half gallon tank and I can get 60mpg pretty easily.
I ride with an older crowd that have large displacement touring bikes. I sometimes show up on the little Ninja and suffer the beat down because my bike only has 300ccs. It's top speed is about 110mph and it has about 40hp.
No problem. If they stray off the interstates and major highways I can leave them for dead in the tight twisties. They call me the American Ninja Warrior!

Nice looking toy.

The small displacement bikes can be a lot of fun!
