Welcome MudTrick... LOL... love the enthusiasm... !

Hello Ladies! I'm a 37 year old mother of four and I started riding dirt bikes a year ago! I also am learning to drive my boyfriends street bike but I am crazy about the dirt bike. I have a 1992 KX125. In my spare time I race Mud Trucks and hunt/fish!

Hey there,

I'm Patrycja and I have an '06 EX500. I live in Phoenix, AZ and I just broke my first 5,000miles.

I love foreign and independent movies, exotic food, music, reading books and hanging out with my friends.

Motorcycling is quickly becoming my new passion and I'm really happy I've decided to get into it.

It's cool to meet other women who ride sport bikes =) I don't see many of you here in Phoenix.

Peace cool sportbikers!
Hi & Welcome!! I'm actually right over here in Yuma! About 2 1/3 hours or so from you..
I've owned an '09 EX500! I loved it. In fact, I've been on a Vulcan 900 Classic for the last 9 months or so, but I'm buying another EX this Saturday from a guy in Bullhead City.
Again, welcome & while you'll find that the majority of posters here are, WAY OVER THERE! More of us are accumulating in the West each day ;)

Welcome to the forum! I rode dirt bikes MANY, MANY years ago. But, a couple years ago when my boyfriend got a street back, I rode on the back, for about 3 days...I knew at that point I had to have my own! You will love street riding...Where about are you?
Again welcome & don't forget to post pics of any bikes you're on! We like pics.. ;)

Hey everyone!
My name is Ada, and honestly, I've never ridden a bike before, but I'm purchasing a Kawasaki Ninja of some sort soon and have signed up here to hopefully educate myself beforehand. Everyone has been telling forever that I shouldn't get a bike/I dont need a bike, and I'm finally just to the point to where I'm going to do it anyways. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated :)

You will love riding!! Don't wait another minute to take the MSF course in your area. Once you buy a bike, take it slow. I rode in the large parking lot at our Civic Center for a long time. Then I moved to back roads....Don't put yourself in a situation where you are outta your league for awhile.
But, most importantly RIDE! I've wanted to ride my entire life. Everyone kept talking me out of it...Wait for kids to grow up, wait for this, wait for that....I REGRET IT!
Riding is amazing!! I suggest for MOST women the Ninja 250R or the EX500 (Ninja 500R). They are very similar, and I could have started out on either one.
Have fun, keep us posted & when you get a bike, show her off here!

Hi Angie, Welcome!! Best advise from me to you is take it easy...Meaning, don't get in over your head too quickly. I took the MSF course & rode on alot of BACKROADS before I really ventured out on busy streets! Get comfy first...AND ENJOY
Ride like they don't see you, because they're probably texting, eating or putting on make-up!!
Post some pics of your bike & come here often for advice ;)

Hey all! I'm Alina. I've more experience repairing bikes than riding them (complete rebuild of everything, sigh). Came to download a wiring schematic, stayed for all the great info. Taking the MSF and getting my license soon, plus I'm about 85% done restoring my '78 KL 250.

Errr... did you do an oil change? I mean you drained it before you refilled it? And when there was no oil in the bike there was still oil in a sightglass? IF so the tubes feeding the sightglass could be plugged if it is exterior. If it is integral to the side of the oil pan then that is harder to understand. If you shift the bike over to the sidestand does the level change? IF it doesnt change, that would say the indicator is faulty.....

more info ?



Do you have a dipstick to pull and check for level? or only this window ?




Thanks!!!

Yes, I did drain it before adding the new oil. Sight glass emptied as well, but now that I refilled with oil sightglass is still empty. Even if the bike is slanted you can't see the oil move. Thanks for your help by the way. :)

welcome.... :)
couple of possibilities...

first perhaps you did not get enough oil replaced and so it isnt showing. Is there a dipstick?

Second, the oil is being held somewhere other than the oil pan... on my bike, you cannot get an oil level (dipstick) unless you shut the engine down without twisting the throttle unnecessarily. That puts oil somewhere else and it doesnt drain down.

Third possibility is that you have overfilled it. The new oil is clean and clear enough that it appears nothing is there, but it is.

How many quarts did you take out? And how many did you put in ? ( do you have a manual to tell you what it takes ?? )

I have to think you have a dipstick on this bike...yes?


answer these questions and then we will talk about what to do next... :)
