Re: Custom building my first bike

Hello Dawson and welcome to the forum. I'd buy a running 250 Ninja to ride while you look for a bike to build. Did you see the Nighthawk Daryl Dixon (The Walking Dead) was riding at the end of Season 5?

Re: Hopefully someone can help me?

Hello Lance and welcome to the forum. What I would do is go to Bike Bandit .com and look at a 91 oil pan. Get the part number. Now go find your oil pan. Is it the same part number? I'd love to see a picture of your 500.

Re: no power after shifting into 3rd gear

What do you mean, no power in third gear? Do you mean you run through the rpm range (1100 at idle to say 5000 when you shift) in first, than second, and when you shift into third the engine dies, you roll to the side of the road and have to start over.

Hello Brad and welcome to the forum. I would examine your final drive unit. Make sure you lube the splines when reassembling the unit.

We need pictures.
