No idea, bought from an insurance auction. I hope the rider is OK but there's really no way of knowing.

It's by no means my bike but it was in my school cafeteria today. The army recruiters came to, well recruit, and they brought this along to catch some eyes. It was the OCC Army Bike. My girlfriend's brother has a mid-2000's Kawi Ninja. I wanna say it's an '06. That thing is fast and it can really rip.



It was amazing, but very few seemed to appreciate it.

I had a Kawasaki Ninja 600 1985 back in 1985. NOBODY had seen anything like it, and driving it on the road made you the spectacle of everyone around.
Next got a 1986 Suzuki GSXR-1100. Worked it to the core and ran a 10.44 @ 129 mph in the 1/4 mile at the track on a 90 degree day when I was fat and weighed over 250lbs! Talk about being the center of attention. At the time NOBODY else had a sport bike and most had never even seen one. Had 110 HP, and the bike was 440 lbs wet. Used to ride wheelies straight up while shifting. A tough thing to do at night when the headlights would shine into the trees with the bike blocking your view into the darkness!!!!! Owned the bike for 20 years and sold it for more than I paid for it brand new. Miss her now, but I have 3 kids and a wife who all need my crazy arsh alive.

Here's mine.



Sorry for the worlds smallest picture, it's the only one I've got of it. It's an Atomik Kuda 250, so yeah, a Chinese bike. Pretty fun bike, really flat power curve, it's never "off power". I bought it for $700 when it was 2 years old, not a bad deal I thought. It's **** reliable too, I've had it for a year and a half now and nothing has gone wrong with it. I never ride it any more though.

Weirdly, its got a push rod engine, no OHC in this thing. ut:

Thanks

Hayden

This is before.
No wonder it wasnt getting fuel XD That is one dirty carb.


Before sanding exhaust


After (i also polished the metal piece on the exhaust.)


Last pics before stripping it.




What im going to do it take off all the plastics and re spray them. Clean the bike really well. Remove the engine, degrease, sand ect and spray with some gloss black engine enamel. Paint exhaust with some flat black and touch up other little bits and bobs.
