Woke up today to 2 pinhole leaks ~ above the tank of mine 06 ninja 250. Cleaned up the mess, and started the process of checking for fixes, as soon as I assumed "fuck it, I'm just gonna gain a new tank since this one is dented and the paint is walk out. Need to be a couple hundy."

The shortest price I found on a new tank to be $826.

You are watching: Kawasaki ninja 250 gas tank?

For one 06 Ninja 250.

Anything in the 150-300 range was rusted come hell and also dented like it come off a cycle in a deadly accident.

Why? One man said the i might get literally any other tank for any type of bike for at most half the price.

Not in manufacturing anymore + beginner bike = absence of spare parts, which drives prices up.

Heh. Had to get a brand-new tank for my '99 FXDWG. Yeah, those Ohlins shocks i should have actually put on critical time yet didn't ("too expensive") looked cheap by comparison.

Guy at the indie shop put it this way: world drop bikes all the time. Gas tanks obtain dented all the time. Insurance pays for it a lot of the time.

He said trying ebay. Uncovered a tank from a dealer (of every places) for the year prior to mine ('98), all all set to go, all new old stock, still in the pack from the factory. For favor $300.

It looks kind enough: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nasadowsk/17291816672

Do a little artful searching and don't despair! i mean, yeah, the Ninja 250 isn't specifically a huge seller, but heck, they must have made an ext of them 보다 Harley made large Glides the year...

Keep searching, it'll pop up right after you invest 800 for a brand-new one. The trick is to obtain Ebay come think you just did the ;)

I ended up just taking it to a radiator shop to have it sealed. Periodically it's finest to just let a professional do their job.
