finally got the chance to take the new bike for a ride (2000 ex500) AND I LOVE IT!!!!! But I'm getting some roughness cruising between 4 & 5K rpm. It had sat for a year, so I drained the gas before it was started (bike was a friend of a friend's so I wasn't really worried about hearing it run before I bought it, felt better about getting that gas out instead) The bike is bone stock, I pulled the plugs (after noticing hesitation) & they looked fine, maybe a tad lean if anything. I'm trying to find a haynes or similar manual, but I've got nothing right now. I didn't check out the air filter as I was short on time. -The previous owner's husband worked at a Kawi dealer & just had them service it, so I assume it's not bad. I will check it out before the next ride though. I'd figure if it was dirty it'd create a rich condition & the plugs say no, so... Factory wires are kinda silly, they come right apart at the plug end so I'll get some new ones of those, but again plugs look good, so I'd have to assume they're firing ok. Maybe needs some carb cleaner since it sat for so long with fuel in it. What do you think?
