Quick, Easy, Noob Question.

I am going to get a Ninja 250 on Tuesday. I am going to tow it back on a small flat bed trailer.

I hear people talk about straping it down on the "Triple Tree"

What is a Triple Tree? Where is it located? Do you have a picture?

Thanks very much

Lyle

The Tripple Tree is on the steering head where the fork tubes and frame tube come together. There are actually two of them upper and lower.
There are quit a few threads on this board about the tiedown subject. Most important is not to pinch any wires, hoses and the like. Also don't pull down so hard as to bottom you're shocks. Ya wanna go about half way. The spring tension will keep the bike upright. Also Canyon carvers are the best. About $30.00

A few ccs short of a full litre.
