I have decided this is less important to me than it was 2 weeks ago, but meh. I am going to do a vinyl wrap and make it blue, even have selected the image since it wont be plain blue but will have accents. I will probably not get this immediately though, way too much other stuff to do first. I also like the 80s retro color schemeI also like the tri-colour, but I couldn't resist picking up a 2011, and not waiting for 2012.
I think the CBR250R racers from Texas that are cleaning up against carbureted Ninjas tune anything they want with a few clicks of a laptop.And it's easier to tune/change/modify carbs than FI. If I were buying a bike specifically for the track it would be a Ninja over a CBR!! I will take my CBR to the track though.
If you are going to tune, all you need is a fuel controller and wide band auto logger. I never ride my Ninja any more. Carbs suck.Sure, so do the MotoGP and F1 racers!! How many guys like us have the programs and equipment though........I know I don't. I thought we were talking about track days not organized sponsored racing. You make a good point though.
