  1. Well I bought a new bike...

    That is NOT a Sport bike It's a cruiser/tourer.
  2. 2018 Ninja 650 High Beam -- Only one side is on?

    General Ninja 650R
    The 'brighter' side is your high beam. Although both bulbs are the same wattage the reflector design in the high beam side is designed to cast light further and in a more concentrated beam.
  3. 2012-2016 Ninja 650 Air Filters

    General Ninja 650R
    Buy the K&N or a DNA reusable filter. Also buy the maintenance kit for washing and re-lubing the filter. Will last the life of the bike - and ignore the comment about 'getting oil on intake sensors' - NEVER heard of that happening with air filter oil and K&N/DNA sell many thousands of air...
  4. Brand New 2020 650 5th Gen

    General Ninja 650R
    It's a bit of a sheep in wolf's clothing. It look nice but the very ordinary outdated parallel twin puts out a measly 67hp compared to the CBR's 85hp, and that 70's pedestrian front end really limits the handling of the bike. If I had to choose between those two only - it would have to be the CBR.
  5. '06 650r with broken side stand mount

    General Ninja 650R
    Looks to me like it has been welded before - machine welds generally are neat and don't have globs of weld like shown in your pic. I agree with AusEr6guy - get it re-welded, and I would suggest braced by a professional who understands that this is a stress-point (it takes the complete weight of...
  6. I sold my Little Red Ninja and bought a Ninjette

    General Ninja 650R
    I sold the Ninja 650 and bought an Aprilia Shiver 750, so I kind of just dropped out as I didn't have anything to contribute 650-wise. I only comment here occasionally as I still get an email every week about Forum highlights. Enjoy the 400.
  7. I sold my Little Red Ninja and bought a Ninjette

    General Ninja 650R
    Good choice of bike, I would buy one if I had the money. I had the 250 (300 in the States) and loved it. Ride safe.
  8. 2019 Ninja 650 backfires through intake

    General Ninja 650R
    A leak in your air injection system (a.k.a smog pumps or AIS) can cause a backfire through the intake. Check that it is sealed well or maybe consider buying a smog block off plate. Backfires through the exhaust are a result of lean air/fuel ratio, which is a result of emissions control. Your...

    ....and yes, your thermo fan will turn off with the ignition.
  11. visor wiper for helmet

    Interesting.
  12. Difficult to start

    General Ninja 650R
    30,000 on original plugs? Replace them with Iridium and check/replace air filter.
  13. 2017 Ninja 650 Brake Bleed Sequence. Front Left or Front Right First?

    Ninja 650R Maintenance
    Why are you flushing the brake fluid? Your bike is less than 2 years old.
  14. Where to Buy Rear Turn Signal Bulbs?

    Ninja 650R Maintenance
    Ebay. Cost about $2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-x-1156-BAU15S-PY21W-Turn-Signal-Light-Amber-Orange-Yellow-Bulb-WT56/122915245545?epid=11005268177&hash=item1c9e51cde9:g:s4QAAOSwQdRaXJG5
  15. Been a couple

    General Ninja 650R
    I would still be changing the oil and filter. Engine oil can oxidise if left sitting, and since your bike has been in the elements, it a fair bet that the oil has degraded. Also, when was the last time you changed the brake fluids? That would also be on my list. Spray some disc brake cleaner in...
