Exclamation Newbie with a 500cc 250 !


a ninja 250 with a 500cc ? the hell is this guy talking about right? well you read it right!
I got an 08 250 with a 05 ex500 engine.
Thought I could join the society and finally post up a proper build thread .

It has been my longterm goal to do this build and its finally done and almost running
(waiting on a set of carbs from sudco)

I can't wait to break the ice on this topic and for all of those
who doubted this build and said it can never be done...

I'm from Washington state and will be doing a lot of adventure rides this year if anyones in the area chime in !

The almighty EX500 engine has been used in other applications other than just a different bike frame. This guy claims that he has one in his buggy. There's no reason to doubt that he doesn't, but I wish he would have got a shot of the engine in the video. It doesn't sound like a 500 engine, but who knows what he has done to the exhaust, or any other modifications as far as that goes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=FUmf6G6DE6w

Very cool conversions skrrrt and badassjake, I have very good theoretical knowledge but I am too scared too implement it even for simple maintenance stuff

So I am always glad to see topics like this!
