  3. 2015 650 Rough/Unsteady Idle

    General Ninja 650R
    From a completely cold start, the bike will do a high idle of around 2k RPM, which seems normal to me. And will then after a few miles/once warm drop down to about 1300 RPM, where it's supposed to be, with just slight flickers in the RPMs and needle. But, where it really bothers me is when the...

    I have a 2019 Ninja 650 that is completely stock with 2K miles and I have been having issues with it backfiring through the air box. It seems to happen more frequently when I downshift and engine brake and then slowly get on the gas. It then "pops" through the air box and hesitates. This has...

    Ninja 650R Maintenance
    Hi all, Sorry to bring up such a boring subject, but my first oil change on the 2015 Ninja 650 I bought this year is coming up and I wanted to get people's opinions.

    So im reaching up right around 4k miles on a 2016 650. Plan to change the oil Using Valvoline 10w40 Full synthetic and K&N Filter (#303, I believe thats the right one) Then to clean and lube the chain. Sadly I was not able to see if the previous owner had a owners/service manual for the bike. Is...

    Daily Ride
    I've got a 2006 Ninja650, for as long as I've owned the bike when I've put down the kickstand the engine would shut off (assuming the bike wasn't in neutral). A couple of days ago this just stopped being the case. Now when I engage the kickstand I also have to hit the kill engine switch for the...
