Ive had my 2004 ZX6R 636 for about 2 months and i havent looked back since!!

the grin factor alone was worth the money!

I don t know if you guys and gals are aware but the council in Derby are... — Kawasaki Ninja Riders

I don't know if you guys and gals are aware but the council in Derby are trialling the use of bus lanes by Motorbikes. I received the following email from the head of their road safety dept and wondered if you could help me by emailing with support for bikes in bus lanes:

RE: bikes in bus lanes

From: Werbinski, Stan (Stan.Werbinski@derby.gov.uk)

To: ian weston (weston_ian@hotmail.co.uk)

Hey up Ian, there will be a review of the Duffield Road bus lane in September. I’ll feed info from the Uttoxeter and Nottingham Roads trials in that review, which should hopefully result in a recommendation to allow bikes in more bus lanes.

Spread the word Ian to your biker mates, and get them to either write in/email me. The more bikers wanting bikes in bus lanes the better.

Cheers Stan

I highly recommend Manuel & Willie, my favorite bike mechanics in NY (I've tried others and these guys are the best). Former helicopter mechanics, they can do anything. They specialize in Japanese marques but I've seen them rebuild everything from Harleys to ancient Royal Enfields.

New guy here.

I ride a 1989 ZX-10 Ninja. Old but classic! A lot like me I guess. ;-)

She's got 85,000km on her and keeps going like the fine machine she is. The big sled runs straighter and faster at high speed than anything I've ever had!

Glad to be here.

  • same here!

Please help — Kawasaki Ninja Riders

Please help

Can someone help me? I have a zx600 and the problem is my clutch lever has gone slack and the lever will not depress also cant ride it of course, Iv followed the cable back to the gearbox and the lever that sits on top off the gearbox does not spring back which makes the cable tighter? Is it the cable or some sort of return spring in the gear box?



  • That sounds like it would be some sort of recoil/spring back mechanism thats shot, Good luck


  • Did you tighten the cable?

What is the largest rear tire available to fit on a 2005 Ninja 250r?

  • .. a bike is set up to run the size tire it comes with. going wider will make the handeling worse on it. i know they look weid with such a small tire, but you could probably go up one size wider if you wnated, which wouldnt make much difference...

Ninja Engine Swap — Kawasaki Ninja Riders

Ninja Engine Swap

Im a noob to the whole biker scene. i was a tuner head whole just got rid of my Toyota Supra and bought a bike. The maintenance on that thing was hell. But after much consulting, i figured the Ninja 250 is the best starter bike so i bought it. But what i would like to know is, can u do an engine swap on a bike for a more power engine (eventually of course)? thats common in the tuner world but can u do it on bikes?

  • or, take less chances, be less risky, probably spend less money, and just buy a bigger engine bike once you need more power? :)

  • dont waste your time or money. get a bigger bike. the 03-up zx6r (636) is a great bike! loved mine until it got stolen and totalled. possibly one of the best all time bikes in my opinion!
