Question about 2001 kawasaki ZX-9 R Ninja
Hi there, I bought the KX60 about six months ago from a guy who said that the bike hadn't been used for about a year. The bike started a think the second time he tried and its sounded good, we checked over the bike and everything seemed fine. When we got it home it was for a xmas present and we put it in the garage for the 4wks until xmas. During that time all the oil had leaked out the bottom of the bike, we have now noticed a small crack under what I think is the crank casing. This may sound silly but should the bike start even without oil? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.
Hi mate take it to a descent welder who can weld aluminium and when welded fill it back up with light gear oil and also the bike will start with no oil but if ran too long the gearbox will seize and will cost you a engine rebuild normally 300 pounds ++ so get it sorted asap good luck

Well, first of all, YES it will start without any oil at all, but in a few minits it will be damaged badly inside the engine. The oils has nothing to do if it starts or not.
Now to that crack youve got under the bike, well its damn expenisve to buy a new casing, BUT you dont need to buy one:) the crack can be WELD:) thats something you cant do yourself. Take the bike to someone good at welding and he will fix it for you in notime:) and its cheap to do it. DO NOT drive the bike before you fill it up with new oil, dont even start it up again without any oil in it, that can be very expensive to do that if you are unlucky.
