20 Most Recent 2005 kawasaki Ninja 250 R Questions & Answers

I used to have a 87 EX 500. Just about the same bike.
It locks to the inside edge of the fuel tank and it seals tight so its not going to come off.
If you can load the bike in a pick-up and find a locksmith that can cut a Kawasaki key, they can be pretty good at cutting a blank. They may also be able to pick it and then make you a key.

Check down by the battery and the fuse box area and make sure that all the fuses are good. It may have blown a fuse when you where hot wiring it.

You need to remove the starter & replace the bendix drive. The bendix is what engages the starter gear to the engine.

Provided you have not been in an accident that has bent your frame,upper and lower triple tree, or forks, the only alignment you can make is to adjust your chain. If the the front wheel is not tracking with the back wheel you just have an improperly adjusted chain. On each side of the swing arm by the rear axle are two chain adjuster cam/wheels. The have numbered bump/stops. Both chain adjusters should be set in the same numbered bump/stop to align the front and rear chain sprockets and the front and rear wheel tracking. the adjusters are on the machine for the purpose of setting the amount of chain slack. Your chain should not be too tight or too loose. If you grab your chain in the middle and push it up and down, you should have a slack measurement of 1 1/4 inches from the bottom edge of the chain to the top edge of the chain. If the setting is off the best way to make the adjustment is to raise the rear wheel off of the ground. A race bike stand is very helpful for this and oiling and caring for your chain. Harbor freight tools sells a cheap rear stand for about $35 (buy the cheaper one piece non-collapseable stand). Pull out the cotter pin, loosen the axle bolt, turn both adjusters till you have the correct amount of slack and they are both set to the same number. Tighten the axle and recheck the slack. If you notice when spinning the rear wheel that the chain goes tight then slack, you have a stretched section of chain. If this is the case you should replace the chain and any worn sprockets at this time.

Check for a lock ring on the shaft; if it is absent then you need a 3 leg extractor to pull it off.

sometimes even if a battery is freshly charged there are not enough cranking amps to engage the starter fully. If you can borrow a battery for a few days and it works fine then that is your problem and the cheapest fix. Also check your wiring for a loose or corroded connection this also causes not enough amps to get to the starter.
If these things fail you may want to remove the starter and get it tested and maybe rebuilt.
hope this helps

Check the fuse panels. Use a multimeter set to ohms to check continuity of each fuse.
