Thanks tadster. The bike is an 09. Had 650 miles when i bought it last year. It has 5,200 miles now. I need to check the service manual but i think its getting time to check the valves. I know the carbs need work but it never got cold enough, long enough to put it down this winter.
As sion.as i get a new chain set for the 650 i have some work to catch up on the ninjette. I cut all the baffling out this morning, just left the exit pipe intact. Louder but not annoying. Still a little raspy, i plan on using the larger diameter pipe from the baffling as the exit pipe. Should make it a little deeper, waiting on my compressor belt to come in to use the cutting wheel.
Worst case is i don't like it and i will just take the canister back off.
sent from my fone.
