What did you do for your Ninja today?

Stole the thread idea from EX-500.

Today, I filled it and rode it until it hit reserve. 136 or 7 miles or something like that. Then found out the fuel pump does not in fact run when you press the starter while in gear and clutch out. On mine anyways....

If that doesn't correct the problem, probably replace all the fairings

I gave her a beer to cheer her up. She is a bit depressed about the being in solitary for the last month. She really misses the exercise yard.

I broke free of the house and took her for a long 2 hour ride. Filled her up twice and added a lil seafoam each time. Tomorrow I plan to start modifiing the Graves exhaust into a shorty and see where it will be mounted, and add decals i received in the mail
yay
edit; i did it now after i got exited. Doesnt look so plain, but the air ram hole looks bad. I will add a grate behind it tomorrow.

Watched as the lawn care guys buried her in grass this morning. Then a real good cleaning.

And now letting her rest until I get a day to add some coolant. Heading to Florida next week and damn I wish I could bring it.

Wish you could bring it too.. I ripped her heart out and gave her some love up front. Pulled the engine and installed an 03 636 front end.

My bi-annual chain goop cleanup from the front countershaft area. Took about a 1/4 lbs of buildup to the trash can. Then it was a new rear tire, followed up by a soap and wax.

Alright! Trading bikes for a while was fun.I'm ready for mine back. No, seriously, get off my bike. Ahh, what a privilege it is to have such a sweet ride.

yeah the mileage should be a bit better than the 40 ish I am getting. But its running all kinds of rich though too, so... Should be better next year after the winter fun. I mean, like 140 miles to 3 and a half gallons or so isnt too bad. Im not entirely sure how big the fual capacity is before reserve though, so maybe I didnt even hit reserve at all and my bike is just retarded?

My two 9s hit reserve at 4g religiously, probably in the same neighborhood as your 7, where 1g remains. The older E starts stinking up the cockpit with fuel vapor 3 miles before reserve is tripped. Still haven't figured that one out yet, but it's kinda cool knowing she's reached her limit.

The absolute worst I've ever seen was a 175, back in my early tuning days before someone directed me towards FP. That seems like so long ago, 3 years, in fact; like the bad-old days. If you ever want to find out your bike's total range, from fill-up to where she sputters to a stop, take along a 16 oz bottle of fuel. Something that won't leak or be a fire hazard.
