1993 Ninja 250 w/ hard rod knock
Got a 1993 Ninja from a friend. Said 'something' seems to be wrong with it. Sat for 4 yrs. Changed the oil, drained/filled the gas, jumped the battery and after a few tries it started up but, it sounds like it has bad bad rod knock. It'll idle for a few minutes but you can not get it to rev up past 1k rpm and and you can feel the pound. Watched a few YT vids on rod knock and it sounds the same, but, could I be wrong? Anything else sound like bad rod knock? If I fix it I'll do the labor myself and just have a shop machine the bottom end. Opinions on if it's worth it? The bike appears to otherwise be in fine shape for the age. Probably dropped once but does not appear to have ever been laid down.
