Hey no problem! I just recently joined this forum and it seems as tho all anybody wants to do us look at pictures..

I have an 07 and I am subscribing to cyclepedia.com for an online shop manual. It's "ok" nice pictures and easy to read but a bit simple at times.. Tho it is good for answering basic model questions similar to yours. And, it's pretty cheap. Just thought i'd throw that at ya.

For sure thanks a lot. I think I will subscribe but until then, I know where to go I agree though. I'm really not here for pictures but legitimately, you know talk for knowledge.

I don't have the manual. I just use ninja250.org as my Bike-Bible lol. Super thorough and really simple for everything. Everything I've done to my bike, I've used that site as a guide book
