New to me !

New here and so far this is one of the best and enthusiastic motorcycle forums I belong to. I picked up a non running 2010 last week for peanuts. I didnt have the heart to tell him it fired right up with a new battery when I got home. I'm already farkling like crazy with a new body and many shiny things coming from China. Going thru the carbs and have a chain/sprocket kit in hand. I really look forward to tuning this thing and having a blast the rest of the summer.

Nice find.

The dude you bought it off was probably happy to get rid of it. He may not have had the time and/or skill to diagnose the issue(s) and restore it.

Hopefully you'll bring the ninjette back to its former glory!

That bike in the background looks like a monster. I guess you want the ninjette because it's cheaper, lighter and more playful.

The kid I bought it from didn't want to fool around with it and went out and bought a zx10r lol . I fully intend to get it as close to showroom as possible. When I rode the 250 yesterday I was fully expecting it to accelerate like my zx14...so yeah I gotta remember a lot of noise doesn't mean a lot of go fast ! Its been a long time since I've had the throttle pegged and was still under the speed limit lol .

That's something that I love about my ninjette. I can pin the throttle, be quickly shifting through the gears and making the bike scream yet be barely over the speed limit. It's a lot of fun.

It's also not ridiculously slow like a 125 4-stroke. Though, occasionally I meet people riding those things that some how manage to get and maintain a fair bit of speed on those things. IDK how they're doing it. I guess they're just staying tucked down and not getting off the throttle much.

Update...l am able to attribute some of the lack of performance due to a worn clutch. I was able to adjust it some but it left me with no free play at the lever and the performance did improve. I ordered new plates and a cable on eBay last night.
