250r losing power after tip
Hey guys thanks for stopping by and reading..Let me start with saying by power I dont mean an electricity or engine problem necessarily, I mean torque and speed....here's a bit of backstory.
I have a 2010 Ninja 250r with about 4500 miles on it.
I want to make a long story short so here goes. My bike got tipped over around 6 am in the morning. I was woken up around 10 am, ran outside and got it set back up. It was leaking gas pretty bad through the cracks.
Well, I found out who tipped it over, and basically in order to not get charged for assault I agreed to not charge this person for the minor damage on my bike.
Well, I've rode it a few times since and I'm noticing it just feels less powerful than it had before.
Basically all of the lower gears (especially 1-3) seem pretty much useless. I switch through them almost instantly just to get any power and it seems to be giving off significantly less torque than before.
I am a complete newbie when it comes to anything motorcycle related so I'm not really sure where the problem lies.
I thought about the air filter, but I know it was almost brand knew when I bought it from my friend last November.
As a result of me being hot-headed and extremely pissed about my bike, and the person who tipped it over was on shift where I worked at the time, I am also currently out of a job so taking it in to be looked at is kind of out of the question for now, because I am assuming that could add up very quickly. I would appreciate any help I can get as to what is going on.
Also, the bike runs almost fine at top speeds in 6th gear. It does seem a bit less powerful than before, but my RPMs going 35+ aren't too far off. It's mostly just the low gears I can tell for sure just arent the same.
