Bought a green 2001 250 Ninja in November, 2009. First bike.
Bike had 915 miles on it at purchase time. Sat for many years. I have read almost all of the faq and alot of forums. I don't have much mechanical experience but love to tinker. I am really enjoying working on it and has been a great hobby for the past couple of months.
With the help of the faqs I removed the airbox to add k&n pods, cleaned the carbs (a few times), changed oil and plugs, synced the carbs and adjusted my valves (1/2/10). I had a heck of a time with the carbs, used rebuild kits and ordered new jets. I kept wanting to go bigger because of pods, but finally got it running great with original 105's and 3 washers. Runs great in each of 3 stages (north metro Atlanta, 1100 feet, 38-48 degrees f.) Love riding, have been doing alot. Past dirt bike experience has helped, but still getting used to oversteering.
Thanks to everyone for all the help!
