  1. GPS Cellphone app?

    General Ninja 650R
    I use Co-Pilot though I used Google Maps prior to that as well. With Co-Pilot You get the usual turn by turn - you can download a giant area for offline use, traffic is available with auto rerouting if you prefer. They also make one for over the road drivers. You can also customize the "Now...

    Ocean air? Ouch. That's sometimes worse than living in the north alone :)

    That may have brought it a little further than I thought I had communicated but I do see your point.

    Welcome aboard.
  5. Horn issues

    Ninja 650R Maintenance
    Use a voltmeter at the horn and see if you get voltage when the button is depressed and hopefully the horn does not sound, if you do get ~12V+ then replace the horn assembly.

    https://dmv.ny.gov/forms/cr79.pdf Appears that the primary tread requirement is not in force. Could have sworn it was. Maybe it was on one of the drafts for the rework, who knows. In any event, if none of the tread is less than 2/32" you shouldn't be given crap provided the rest of the vehicle...
  8. 2012 Ninja 650 - I survived performing the valve adjustment

    Ninja 650R Maintenance
    Unfortunately I disconnected them at the bottom - throttle assembly. Will try it that way the next time. I was able to ease the valve cover out the left side without issue otherwise.

    Yes, except I have the "I work for somewhere that matters in this process guilt/responsibility" - which is why I cannot mention anything to the inspector that would cause him to alter his results in any way. If you're going to a shop and have to kiss their *** you aren't going to a reputable...
  10. LED Questions

    General Ninja 650R
    Lower that fuse to whatever it should pull +10-20%. I'm thinking an Ampere or two at most. The last thing you want is for the fuse to not blow when it should and something to cook. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  11. LED Questions

    General Ninja 650R
    That 10 amp fuse looks a bit overkill for an LED setup. Just how much current are yours pulling?

    Note to self next time - make sure that the rear crankcase breather (I think that is what it is) connects to airbox tightly. Started smelling fumes at the lights, looked and found it wasn't on as it should be. Easily corrected.

    Like to see the build quality :) It was a case of being anal and I had time on my hands waiting for my grease to arrive.

    Spoke with owner's brother whom I know. He spoke to the guy and educated him about water scipes. Sometimes you want to give a place a chance before you drag them through the mud... I was just wondering how many others have encountered this type of BS before.
