Now that the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 has started arriving on showroom floors, companies have started introducing accessories to make the Ninja 300 even more attractive to buyers. Roaring Toyz has introduced accessories that can be purchased either individually or as a package that will lower the Kawasaki Ninja 300, giving new riders the confidence to handle a motorcycle without the fear of not being able to touch the ground.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 has a seat height of 30.9 inches, which works well for most riders starting out on a sportbike. Some beginners end up getting a cruiser instead of a sportbike because they feel more confident being able to plant their feet fully on the ground, lowering kits offer the opportunity for beginners to start out on the bike of their choice.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 Lowering Package Components:
- Lowering Links: These lowering links are installed on the rear suspension of the Ninja 300. The links include five different holes, giving the rider five different ride heights to choose from. The lower links retail for $39.99.
- Lowering Kickstand: This kickstand is designed specifically for a lowered Ninja 300 and comes with all the hardware necessary for installation. The kickstand connects with ease to the safety switch and factory spring. The lowering kickstand retails for $109.99.
- Handlebar Risers and Front End Lowering Blocks: When installed, the risers and lowering blocks lower the front end a full inch while the upper fairing and front fender still maintain proper clearance. The handlebar risers/front end lowering blocks retail for $59.99
All three components are CNC-machined from 6061 billet aluminum with a black anodized finish. The Roaring Toyz logo is also contrast cut into each of the three pieces.
The full Kawasaki Ninja 300 lowering kit package retails for $189.99, a significant savings over buying the three pieces individually. It is recommended that a professional motorcycle mechanic install these parts, installation as a complete package will also be less expensive than getting them installed individually.
