Help Finding Parts--'01 Ninja 250

Discussion in 'Corvallis / Albany' started by Bryyo357, Oct 18, 2012.

  1. So I recently started attending OSU and I brought down my '01 Kawa Ninja 250! I know it's due for an oil change, plus the low-beam headlight just burned out the other day so I need to replace that. Does anyone know where I can get some oil and a replacement bulb from a store nearby? I'd rather not order it online, and I know I want to work on the bike myself instead of taking it into a shop. So far from what I've seen, the closest parts shop would be Cycle Gear in Eugene, and the closest Kawa dealer is about an hour east of campus. Anyone know any place closer? Thanks for the help!
     
  2. You can get all of that from any autoparts store.
    Motorcycle specific oil can be found at those places or you can use Shell Rotella T6 5W40 diesel truck oil (A little cheaper, i use it) Make sure it has a JASO-MA rating and is suitable for wet clutches.
    They will have Fram filters there as well. part CH6012 (all you people bashing on fram, the filter for the ninja actually is well made )

    Headlight bulb is a common H4 bulb.

    Napa auto parts stocks most oil filters nescessary, and you can probably get away with Rotella easy in that bad boy. Oil change solved. Headlight also may be available, I know a lot of older bikes used H4 bulbs...

    looks like it's an H7 actually. This is for the 2008 but aughta get you ballpark closeish. Double check all of this with your own google-fu, but you should be able to do this all locally at an autoparts store.
     
  4. Jnicola is right on most,

    most all parts from 88 - 2005 are the same

    If you need parts BTW i have TONS of parts

    Most of those filter brands can be found locally at autoparts stores.
    Fram - Autozone
    Purolator - Fred Meyer
    Carquest, Napa - Duh

    The 10w/40 synthetic your bike takes can be found at most auto parts stores as well.
