Thank goodness for the parts-pullers. I think most folk are blind to just how many trashed bikes are available to pull parts from. It may be tough finding a nice Ninja 250 now on Craigslist, but...

So it's not just me then?? I was really impressed with the brakes on my ex250 after just a fluid flush. The front brake is just about the biggest gripe on my SV; I've upgraded to sst lines, sintered...

It may feel like that now, but once you get them fully cleaned and you're riding the bike regularly I bet you won't have to mess with them for a while. I had mine in/out a half dozen times when I...

I may be in the minority but I find the 16s on the old Ninjettes to add to its characteristics. I love the 17s on my SV or on a gsxr, but these are very different machines.

My SV is definitely around 420lbs wet, but I know the 1gen could get down to the 375 mark pretty easily; lot's of guys racing them on the SV forum who are down in that range.

This may sound crazy, but Suzuki did this back in '99 with a little bike called the SV. There are plenty of examples with a kerb weight in that ballpark.

I'm glad you said it. The manual fan switches bug me; they're great when you remember it, sucks when you forget. Kawasaki designed the system to work w/o rider intervention.

Why the pod filters? Or were they on when you got the bike? They are a pain to tune around on most bikes but magnified on these 250s.
