  1. Troubleshooting
    I have a 2007 ninja 500. My bike has recently started bogging ( i suppose ) around 2-4k rpms and then when it passed 4500 rpms it’ll rip like it is usually does. I cleaned the carbs throughly and put a new k&n air filter in it. I’ve found a way to manipulate it though. When i adjusted the...
  2. General Discussion
    I’ve let my bike sit for a few weeks here and I forgot to turn the petcock off before I left it. I’m going to take it to get it safety inspected tomorrow but I guess my question is: do I have to worry about a fuel hydro lock or anything because I left my petcock on? If so I guess I’d need to...
  3. Troubleshooting
    I have a 2009 ex500 that I recently bought a few months ago. It rode kinda half-heartedly at first and after some seafoam it started to get into the higher RPM range and rode just fine the next couple of times riding it. I just took my permit test and wanted to ride my bike as soon as I passed...
  4. General Discussion
    I was out in an empty parking lot practicing some maneuvering on my ‘95 ex500. I was driving it decently hard but not outrageously. I shifted up to 3rd and 4th on a long straight and then down shifted to 1st. Then when I tried to shift up again, the shift pedal would move up to 2nd or down to...
  5. Engine
    I crave building this bike, got a project and all the fun inheriting someone else's issues and currently the engine is in pieces along with the rest of it. And I have heard that this bike was built to maximum power, high compression, exhaust at best flow and what not. I'm aware of the absolute...
  6. Engine
    So I bought a project, $700 and a whole slue of issues but that’s what I wanted. I have taken the engine apart and it’s a slow rebuild, just recently I have opened the bottom end to clean the oil pan and attach the piston. But a secret goblin was hiding, left piston had some ware scares that a...
  7. Troubleshooting
    I just recently did spark plugs, kn air filter, oil, carb rebuild, and seafoam. Bike is 2006 with 8500miles. The left cylinder pops when the bike is leaned to the right. Is this something serious or just the normal pop I've heard on this forum that the bike has? YouTube.com
  8. Engine
    I’m well aware that the engine is not meant for more compression due to Kawaski pimping it out, or that’s what I heard here, that it’s practically on the brink of going boom. But are there heavier or like stronger engine mount bolts, the 4 that go inside holding everything together making it an...
  9. Engine
    The internet has proved unreliable for my search so I thought to ask the all mighty ones. I have a 2007 ex500 project and whilst I repair it I thought while the engine sits on a table I look into Nickasil or nickel silicon carbide plating. It’s used in race bikes to reduce friction and it’s...
