Question Ninja 500R manuels remain similar over time? - July 28, 2006, 06:38 PM

My learning adventure is continuing. I have my 500R starting now, which is good. It is now having pretty serious roughness after being parked on a very steep loading ramp, nose end up (so as not to drop it, of course). Starts fine, hesitates when accelerating fast, and seems to shake worst at about 6K RPM. I have an appointment scheduled, but I'm hoping to fix her by then.

I changed the plugs, which didn't help anything, but at least now I know how to change my plugs. I"m thinking fuel filter or carbourator woes. Any suggestions welcome.

I'm looking for a manuel, but $70 is kinda steep. I found one on ebay for $20, but it is for a 2002. Mine is a 2005. I am told that bike hasn't changed much since the early 90s, so would I be able to use this with no severe problems? I'm not planning to rebuild a transmission or anything, but I do want pictures and procedures for basic stuff.

also, is this a total waste of my time and money? I know, it's a copyright infringement, but that isn't my question.

the models have remained unchanged (largely) from 1996 until 2006 - a manual for an '02 will be perfect. if you can find a legit copy, buy it. if not, email the eBay auction dude and convince him to sell it to you for $10 (i mean, it is just a copy machine job)...not that i'm condoning buying flagrantly and unapologetically illegal copyrighted materials over eBay
