Have an 05 ninja 250 with no compression in left cylinder. All plastics are there with bunch of extra parts. Parting out. Can get a brand new from factory tank with it as well if you want.

  • This is the one with the Vacuum issue? Have you had a look under the valve cover? My wife's 09 had pretty tight valves by the time it was due for it's first check. You could have an exhaust valve held open.

  • Rerouted the vacuum line that pulls to the right cylinder. Started fine on one. When runs it's on one. Can feel compression from right but not left

  • Yep. Exhaust valve held open can cause that.

  • Need to still pull engine to check that, right?

  • Nope. Pull the valve cover off and check the valve clearances. Was the bike burning oil before this?

  • no clue, this one was bought super cheap non running.

  • Charles Jose Labamba Jr.

  • Nice! (Not that it's broken, but you know lol)

    Guessing the intake valves were not opening at all then?

  • nope, managed to get it open and saw metal that didnt look right. both exhaust on left cylinder were sheared

  • looks like all will need clearance redone. Doubt anything below got hurt due to this being the weak point.
