I had a Ninja EX250... that was a fun bike... Had a Muzzy full exhaust on it & that's it... I didn't see the point in messing with carbs for a few xtra HP... wouldn't have helped anyway...

I can only imagine how much more fun the ex500 might be. I would definitely only do the exhaust, not cause of power gains, but rather weight savings will likely have a bigger impact. Next the suspension upgrades will really help to if you plan on keeping it for a long time, but if the plan is to upgrade, just ride the ***** out of it.

My only gripe is that they didn't put 17x3.5 up front and at least a 17x4.5 in the rear so that premium rubber can be put on the bike... Maybe you can get some wheels off a salvage yard & have a shop put them on the bike if they fit...
