Hello everyone. I just got my 2007 Plasma Blue Ninja 650R with 800 miles on it on Sunday. I have noticed that there is some play in the throttle. Maybe about 1/2 inch before the engine starts to rev up. Is this normal? How much play should there be? Should there be any? Thanks.

there should be a little play but not 1/2". more like 1/8".

adjust your throttle cable. it's very simple.

Look at the plastic housing that your kill switch is on. On the bottom there is a little wheel thingie. Rotate it CC. You will feel your play lesson. Do this until it is where you are happy with it. Then when you are done start the bike, and make sure that it didnt affect your idle. Then turn the bars left, and right and see if doing that makes your engine rev. if it revs than you need to rotate it back a little bit.
