Cant help with lock, try some graphite powder.
left switch will have high and low beam( H and L) and a horn.(and possibly headlight on off,but this is usally on right hand side)
Pri is prime, only to be used to help start bike if you have run out of fuel, this bypasses the vacumn fuel tap, do not ride, park or leave it on pri.
refill when it runs out and you need to switch to reserve, if you take a note of the odometer reading when you fill, you can figure out how far it goes on a tank full and plan your trips, the reserve is to get you the 10-20klms to the next station.

Good afternoon, I've just bought a 1991 KLE 500 but it doesnt have any manual with it. I'm trying to find out what the positions are for the fuel cut-off switch on the left hand side of the bike as there...

You can go to and get the manual for "YOUR" bike. They have manuals for owners of 1986 to the present. The VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) must be entered in order to retrieve it. VIN # IS_SEQUENCE OF17 DIGITS. **EXAMPLE ***** JKAVFKA16VB508039 *****
After you find & download the manual ,you may need Adobe reader to open it with.
Here is a picture where to find the number and the web-page to enter your info.
Good luck.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to hot wire my ninja ex500

listen everyone knows if you wanna steal a bike just order a new ignition on ebay and take a hammer and knock out the old ignition and replace it with the new ignition and your done... SO with that being said who is gonna steal a ninja 500 they are so abundant the parts cant even be sold for much money so that means he probably doesnt want to steal a bike or pay 175.00 bucks to a shop... and most shops wont make keys sooo mwoodring1 if you dont know dont answer your question just pop the top of the ignition with a hammer or screw driver and turn the plastic rectangle at the bottom to start and hit the selinoid or starter button...

Adjusting front suspension

yes you are going to need a technical manual with the gauged settings of the factory. This will set to default factory and you can then adjust to what the setting adjustments are to fit your confort.
