I don't see a 500 in this bike's future. The more I read about it from folk who have done it, it is not in fact a bolt-in. So far I see rear upper engine mounts need to be redone, the sprocket needs...

Huh, I did not know the 500 was a bolt-in. They certainly are cheaper than 300s, I will have to investigate.

This bike does NOT need 60hp though! :rotflmao:

Well, Gordon did some good work on the carbs, and that's half the battle. I've just been keeping a minimum of fresh Sta-Bil'd gas in it and running it hard when I get the chance. Other than that I'm...

Got out on my local route yesterday. It was hitting low 90s but not bad overall. I got the bike good and hot and it never overheated, so that's good. I put about 60 miles on it and my confidence is...

I got the 250 out for a couple quick rides today, and finished wiring in some diodes to fix my turn signals. It was nice to work on the bike. It took surprisingly quick to get from here:...

I've seen manuals specify 91 RON fuels which are close to the US 87 octane rating. RON is just a European rating. Ethanol really sucks if you have carburetors; it has very noticeable effects after a...

Simply based off this thread? I don't know, but the shape of the frames between the old kz bikes and the ex250 is pretty different. The Ninjas have that big hump that goes far into the stock tank. I...

Good luck, I hope it works. You're fortunate that CSC put a rebuildable shock on there, lots of the bigger manufacturers don't even do that.

Good for you. I did this a couple of months back on mine, which was well overdue. I've had the engine now for several years (across multiple project-ninjas) and it's been beaten hard for unknown...

It all sounds like normal issues when bikes sit that long with modern gas in them. Run it through and put new gas in. If that doesn't fix it, pull the carbs and try again.

I won't give you grief...

Sounds like rain got in the crankcase. Not too surprising seeing as it was parked outside under a tarp. I suspect the knocking and the clutch non-disengagement are linked.

I would trust the Factory Service Manual, used paperbacks are on Ebay for $25. I'm sure you could find a download around here too.

I keep Ninja 300 engines pretty fresh in my Ebay search... I really anticipate making this upgrade once I get some more miles on the little 250 as it currently sits.
