  1. Problem with starting

    The Mechanics Corner
    Yes to all the questions - I even wiggled the key a bit to see if that would help, but nothing :(
  2. Problem with starting

    The Mechanics Corner
    Hi - I have a bit of a problem with my bike. After getting it MOTd today I was told that I need to replace the downpipes, which should cost about £120 for the part, but that is for a different topic. I have got it back home ok, but now I can't get it to start up at all. Pressing the start...
  3. I'm a new rider and I need advice.

    Kawasaki Streetbikes/Sportbikes
    I passed my test couple of years ago, and bought a GPZ500, mainly because I passed my test on a ER-5, and preferred the look of the GPZ. It was also more affordable than some of the bigger bikes I saw, in terms of price and insurance. I bought another GPZ500 a year later as it was going to...
  4. I've got a squeaky rattle

    Kawasaki Streetbikes/Sportbikes
    Either that, or a rattly squeak. It's difficult to describe, but my bike has developed a rattle, only it squeaks instead, even when its not moving (ie waiting at traffic lights). I am at a bit of a loss as to where to start looking, so has anyone on here got any ideas? I am guessing that some...
  5. Unbelievable Deal on an EX500

    Kawasaki Streetbikes/Sportbikes
    That sounds like a good deal - I got my bike in Nov '02 for £2300, and it's a W reg. It will be 4 in April!
  6. scarrrry engine failure

    Kawasaki Streetbikes/Sportbikes
    That looks just like a GPZ500. I got one of them, only mine's black. Actually, it's meant to be black, but is white at the moment, until I get a chance to clean it...
  7. GPZ500 - holes in exhaust

    The Mechanics Corner
    I doubt that the previous owner would have worried about emission tests, as it had its first MOT in March (I bought it in November). The holes don't have rough edges, although that kind of thing is difficult to see when its wet, and I never noticed them before. I'll have a look at the weekend...
  8. New rider

    Main Lobby
    My first bike was a 10 year old GPZ500 (that's an EX500 to those in the US!!). I got rid of it when I found out that it wouldn't pass its MOT. I replaced it with a GPZ500 (2 year old!!)! When I can afford a house with a garage I want to get a Ninja 8)
  9. Hi - I am new here

    Main Lobby
    I was trying to find the F1 site that I use, and came across this one. As I have a Kwak I thought it might be good to join up and discuss occasionally. Anyway, hi!!!
  10. Helmets...Do you wear one?

    Main Lobby
    In the UK it is law that you wear one. If the police catch you with your helmet undone you can get hit with a £1,000 fine.
  11. GPZ500 - holes in exhaust

    The Mechanics Corner
    I started my bike up this morning and noticed that, as well as exhaust fumes coming out of the back of the exhaust (as they should), they were also coming out of a hole on the underside of the exhaust, in exactly the same place, on each. Is this normal, or am I about to foot a rather expensive...
