Guide to How-To Navigation.. New and Improved

****under construction****



i am trying to "group" these as best as i can. transmission related stuff, lighting related stuff, FI light stuff and so on.. but i have ADD and i make no promises on organization.

you owe anyone who's info you use either rep points, money, or alcohol and/or titties. this is saving you a shit ton of money and taking money out of my pocket as well, since this is what i do for a living.

noobs: your reps are neutral for a while so.. i'll just take money instead..

the authors of this information can not be held liable for damages due to mechanical ineptitude, incompetence, negligence, workmanship (or lack thereof), damages to property,or physical harm to yourself or others. furthermore, I am not responsible for the accuracy of the information contained herein. use at your own risk. (except my info. it's the shit. )

IN ADVANCE, please forgive me. I cant find (search) anything relating to replacing the Brake Pad on an 1st Generation ninja 250r. My ride: "Ninja, 2004,250R". Plenty 'how tos &vids' for the '08+ Ninja 250R's, but nothing for our Old and forgoten 1st Gen Ninja 250R's.
Please help, and TIA, Al

what say you about adding a link to the FI codes? I ask because I just came here because I assumed you would have covered this in your infinite knowledge.

Is it just me or is this thread really hard to navigate through...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
******>>>>>J/K<<<<<***** (<--better?)

Thanks for the awesome section. I have another How To on fairing repair if you want to add it. I wrote this one up last year (lots of pics) and it works very well.
