Thanks! I think she's beautiful, too, though I think a lot of bikes are beautiful. I kind of motorcycles on the brain lately.

Static Drop in the Driveway

:roll eyes:


MSF 101: Helmet, gloves, sitting on the bike. Start 'er up.

Me: Helmet, gloves, "oh I'll just warm 'er up while I'm doing my safety check.

"Whoa. It was in first gear. I'm gonna drop ... oh. d%$#!"

Yes. MSF 101. Sometimes the universe tells you when not to ride. Had all the right reasons to go out. PSIs low, go get some air in the tires, change the shield it's getting dark, and then blam! Dropped it right in the driveway. Couldn't pick it up. Tried all those YouTube videos for how to pick up your dropped sport bike. Couldn't get it. Had to call somebody for help. Picked it up, I think the clutch spun a bit because it felt like a stretch to when I was checking it out. I guess I'll see in the light tomorrow what the damage is, probably just a few scratches.

What is the correct safety protocol after something like that? Just check that parts aren't falling off and such?

Arrrghhh... can't believe I did that!

Safety wired the oil filter. It took me a couple days to find my needle nose pliers (for bending the free end into a loop, not for the bulk of the work)

It's primarily for racing. You drill a hole through the bolt head and loop fine staineless steel wire through it and tie it off in a fashion to keep the bolt from turning. Like so!

Wasn't ment for you.

But you might want to check the safety switches, it shouldn't have started if they were all working, here's some homework for you.

http://faq.ninja250.org/wiki/Underst...afety_switches

http://faq.ninja250.org/wiki/My_side...27t_work_right

http://faq.ninja250.org/wiki/Checkin..._safety_switch

http://faq.ninja250.org/wiki/Cleanin..._clutch_switch


Also how hard was it dropped? Was it a quick drop? Or slow motion trying to save it drop?

Not for nothing, and take no offense, but does the neutral light work?

And most important don't sweat it, everyone has done it, just learn from it, and go on and enjoy the bike.

Safety wire is used to maintain tension in the direction that tightens a part that might otherwise work its way loose. In this case, my oil filter which was freshly switched to a K&N version. If you peruse some race org rules you'll find an assortment of other bits that require it. There's also like a very serious aviation industry spec for how it should be done, if you're into dry technical documents.

It also means 'spend a few minutes trying to get a picture of my oil filter without removing more bodywork + with poor lighting'

Nice, but Pregen is a bit different, you'd have to do that to the oil filter bolt.

Also racers do this, sometimes due to the racing rules depending on association, and/or track.

I had the specialty tool years ago that made safety wiring easier.

Thanks for the links Ghostt ... the neutral light does work, and usually if I have the Ninja in gear when the side stand is down, any forward motion will cause it to stall. I did not realize that it's not supposed to start at all in first. It was definitely slow mo ... I tried to catch it, but it bucked like a baby bronc and dropped despite my best efforts. Caught me by surprise.

I took it as a clue that as the day was waning, so was I, and so I stayed home (that and I couldn't get it off the ground until my friend arrived about an hour later).

D'oh. I'm going to run through those steps tomorrow to figure out what went wrong. As I said above, I wasn't my sharpest, so I may have started my old scooter when it was really my Ninja in front of me.

Yep, Hurricane's my baby. And hey, I didn't know Marigold was a McDuck! Cool! Though I'd've thought she'd be more closely related to Launchpad McQuack

And @wendyjboss... ouch. Poor thing looks quite dazed! Thanks for the compliment on my bike's name btw - I really like it too! It'll be on her custom plate when the DMV ever get around to sending it...

As for me - Hurricane had her 600-mile service today. At... around 750 miles, whoops. I put quite a lot on her before I was able to bring her in, even though I booked the service a while back... the dealership is really booked up right now.

After that, took her for a ride up the Pacific Coast Highway... need to remember to bring earplugs the next time I do that. I've never had a problem with wind noise before, but it was brutal out there. So it was slightly less fun than it could've been because my head was ringing (and also the gear shop I wanted to check out seems to now be an empty dirt lot), but I'll know for next time.

I use the harbor freight version for most of it. Worth fewer pennies, but it's good enough for me.

Right on. My initial post was just 'What I did to my Ninjette today', and the follow on was aimed only at the 'what is safety wiring' question. Apologies if that got muddled given the other more important questions being asked (and not addressed by me).

Your bike is named Mantis? That's awesome.

My wife always says the Ninjette looks like a mantis.

Yes, my ZX10 is Mantis. Our 250 is Toothless (when I pulled all of the fairings to paint her, the nose alone without the windscreen looked like toothless from how to train your Dragon. Wifey named her new 300 Fritzenhimer... I don't know why...

I've noticed before that black Ninjas remind me a lot of Toothless.

Put rim tape from customtaylor33 on her! And some sparklies on her face.





Pretty easy to apply even though I'd never done it before. I didn't need an applicator. Looks good I think.

Search for customTAYLOR33 on Amazon and you'll find it there.

today I am still waiting for my replacement lever bolt to come in, I was supposed to be here 3 days ago. Some how it got lost in the mail, so I am fighting with the seller currently. Just ordered another one from a different seller to save the hassle. So she sits... like she has all week

A sitting bike is a sad bike. Sorry to hear it...

That part really is nothing special so a lot of bikes will use the exact same one.
If you're really wanting to get out and ride it's something that could easily be picked up at a motorcycle salvage yard.
