Ninja 650 Build

Wanted to share my re-build of my Ninja 650, this is how she sits. New Radiator comes in two days

Ninja 650 Build
Ninja 650 Build
Ninja 650 Build

I crashed while the motor was in gear, is there any chance the motor is messed up? The chain fell off the rear sprocket and the front sprocket wound up the chain between it and the rear swing arm. Im worried the tranny or something my be stripped. What is the possibility of something like that?

You should go for the gusto on the SS brake lines but remember to upgrade your pads to like EB HH... I use EPFAs and love them.

Can't wait to see this when it is done...

The front rim hit a curb and cause the forks to bend and absorb the shock. The triple tee doesn't look bent nor does the front frame

Is the steering stem tube straight? You could try turning the motor by hand after you removed the spark plugs and see if it turns over. You can probably rotate the transmission with whatever chain you have left and see if it spins while modulating the shifter and clutch.

Why do I need to remove the spark plug? My plan is just to run it without a chain, I know there will be no resistance so I wont be wrapping it out, I want to try and shift though some gears.

i wouldn't worry about the engine so much

there's a tip over sensor, once your bike is banked over so far, the engine cuts off.

It will turn the rotating assembly to see if there is still smooth motion without igniting the cyclinders for combustion. Just a safety measure, then it that goes well, you can hook them back up and do your idea as a phase two.

Sweet, glad to hear that the bike should have shut off, Ill probably go pull the spark plugs and see later today. Right now ive it in neutral and I can spin the front sprocket.

I want to be able to use the stock pads for a while, that should be fine right?

Stock pads and ss lines here... though, the pads probably make the largest improvement.

You will get better braking from the SS lines but the pads do make the biggest difference. I did some SS lines for Samba636 on his R1. We left the stock brake pads and he was like

"They are better not something to rave about though. I expected to be going over the handlebars."

That being said when I did my SS lines and pads.. the improvement was extreme enough it scared me the first time while I was testing.

Radiator got put on with some fresh radiator fluid and she started right up and went through all 6 gears and shifted back down into 1st and then up into neutral. Hard without the chain and tire on.

Fork and chain are paid for and being shipped out. Rim is the last part I really need before I get her running again. Once shes running then its time for the good stuff to start.
