Yep... been on a street magic 50cc for the last five months, commuting from home to work... been ok, but have just got my L(egend) licence so am keen for a ZXR250 or similar.

Any one else ride these?

Thoughts?

Of course the world's most fun bike counts!

Welcome, but watch out for the scooter Nazis. ;)

TR50 all the way :)

Thats what i started on ... they are great bikes to ride.

But alittle slow i got taken out by a car on mine cause i could not go the 70 kph limit. So i would advise to get a 250 as soon as ya can.

cheers all...

been a long-time reader of the site but never had too much to say...

however, now I do! Yep, just slapped a deposit down on a 1990 Kawasaki ZXR250A from Mt Eden Motorcycles...

Will be picking it up this week after a few things are done to it.

Been keen on one of these for ages, can't believe I ended up getting the bike I wanted, with new tires, for less than $3k!!!

STOKED

and yeah man, they're a pretty classic little bike, but as said above, the speed restriction is a major pain, esp. when ya've got 10 cars banked up behind you :argh:

Get a mallossi 80cc kit a PM tuning chamber a bigger carb mess around with the rollers and you will set with around 18+HP depending on who well you set it up. Heaps morefun than a 250cc motorbike if ya ask me, Wait till you get your full then get a 400 heaps cheaper and more bang for your buck.

I've got a TR50. They're fuckin fun little bikes. I ride it more than the zx6r these days. Feels like one of the bushes in the forks have gone now tho, they're wobbling around a bit.

how much to do these things ya reckon?

my bro's bike... but I'm sure he'd be interested to find out how to make it go quicker

disagree that it's more fun though... just went for my first blat on old north rd - can't imagine having too much fun on the TR50 there ;)
