  2. Wrecked the bike this weekend

    General Ninja 650R
    Hi all this past weekend I was having a little too much fun on the 650, and I ended up crashing at 50mph. No cars involved, and I walked away with just some nasty road rash on my butt. Which is surprising because I was wearing shorts/T-shirt with just my helmet on. The bike only took damage on...
  3. Electronic Digital Speedo Not working right

    The Training Ground - New Riders!

  6. Repainting my bike

    What are the steps I need to take to repaint my tank and front wheel fender? Its a unique blue color so I need to get that matched somehow. What are the steps to paint over paint on these surfaces? Any input is helpful. If you have any pictures too, that would also help. Thanks
  7. Fairing buzz fix

    General Ninja 650R
    So this is probably somewhere on the site, but i can't find it anywhere. I know everyone that rides the 650r has a problem with the fairings buzzing or something, and i am pretty sure that there was a recall or something for it? Since i'm not the original owner i don't think i can claim that...
