    The bike in the article was in very bad condition. It was procured as 'write off scrap' from the owner. Motozone rebuilt the bike over a period of time and the bike is currently the fastest Ninja 300 in the country (see the post "The Quantum of Performance"). The bike has many of the elements of Ninja San and all the experience that was garnered during making of Ninja San has been used to make this bike.

    The bike has clocked 21,000 kms, and is doing pretty good. Further upgrades are in progress. A flowed head with revised intake track, bigger valves and stage 1 cams are in the execution stage. Its a major build of the top end which should give us some real gains. Hopefully, we should be finished with it by end of next month.

    Hi Pratik, long time no updates!! How is Ninja san? It seems you have changed from Leo vince to GPR full exhaust system. Any specific reason for this? And any other updates?

    Updates are taking time as my Car project is taking all the bandwidth that we have. While all the parts for the next changes are in place, we do not want to take on more than what is possible to work on properly. Incidentally the work done on the car will help us with Ninja San's engine work. Its was very interesting and great learning process for us when we started working on the car engine.

    Yes, I have changed over to a full GPR exhaust system. For couple of reasons. First and foremost being that due to the exhaust warps the LV system had become badly rusted. We had the choice of removing the rust, getting the pipes and headers polished and re-wrapping the exhaust with new insulation tapes. The other option was to buy a new headers and pipes. Since LV has closed down, that option was no longer available. The second reason, I was also curious as to how much of a difference with another make of pipes make. So considering these aspects we went in for a full new exhaust and are not using any insulation wraps.

    The difference in performance? Yes, there is a marked difference in performance. Where the LV system made power right from 3,000 rpm and running out of breath at around 8,000 rpm, the GPR starts making power at 6,000 rpm and keeps making it till 12,000 rpm. So we have lost the initial grunt, but have gained significant power at the top end. We will try to compensate for the loss of initial power with Stage 1 cams.

    For details of the car's work check out my thread on team-bhp.

    ^^^ I honestly don't think it's really fair to put the link over here (being a competing forum which has a 2 wheeler section of its own). You can search for the thread with the keywords "Project ST Ford Fiesta 1.6 Duratec"

    Default 10,000 kms on Flo SS Oil Filter

    This is a long term report on the Flo SS Oil filter. As mentioned in our previous post here, I have installed a stainless steel reusable oil filter on Ninja San. Having completed 10,000 kms on the filter and due for a oil change, I thought it was the right time to write about my experience with the filter.

    It has always been my philosophy that Ninja San should equipped with the cutting edge components available at the time when the components are available and the oil filter was fitted to the bike in line with the philosophy. So what has been the my long experience with the oil filter? Quite frankly, the thought of the oil filter does not come to my mind on most days. Only when I do a physical inspection of the bike do I note the oil filter and check if there is any oil seepage from the 'o' ring.

    So what does that say about the oil filter? Contrary to what most people will think, it just means that the oil filter is doing its job without any fuss and is extremely reliable. I have not had any problems whatsoever with the bike. Even after clocking over 20,000 kms when we checked the valve clearances we found that the valves were well within the factory settings. The bike starts on first crank every time I start it (sometimes the bike is left standing for upto 10 to 15 days), which incidentally is also a testament to the Lithium battery which has been installed on the bike. The machined billet aluminium outer case with added cooling fins adds some cooling efficiency to the whole setup (remember; 70% of the cooling of a engine is done by oil).

    Having completed 10,000 kms with the oil filter, it was time for a oil change and cleaning of the oil filter. It was going to be interesting to see what the condition of the oil and oil filter were like.

    Upon draining the oil we found it to be in very good condition with no metallic debris that we could see. Considering that the oil had run for 10,000 kms, it was in remarkable viscous condition. It was smooth and consistent in feel. While admittedly this not a scientific feedback (mass spectrometry analysis is required to know the true condition), it did tell us that the oil had held well for 10,000 kms.

    When we removed the oil filter, the inner SS core was found to be coated with debris and significant amount of gunk. The Oil Filter casing is fitted with a very powerful magnet. The purpose of this magnet is to capture any floating metallic debris in the oil and keep the oil relatively clean. Upon inspection of the magnet we found it coated with metallic debris. The magnet works as it was designed to work and it works like a charm. Many will feel that the metallic debris is a sign of something abnormal with the bike. It is not. Wear of the engine and its moving parts is as inevitable as day following night. There is no preventing it, it can be minimised with supply of good oil to all parts of the engine. To supply good oil over a extended period of time, one needs a good filtration system. The Flo SS oil filter does an admirable job of getting the work done (Flo claims 200% more filtration rate).

    Once the inner filter core was detached from the outer case, both parts along with the 'O' ring were washed with mild soap and water. The components were allowed to dry out and then were sprayed with Motul Carb and Fuel Injector cleaner. The result was 'Vim' sparkling clean components. The oil filter was assembled and fitted back and new oil was put into the engine.

    Normally, when you drain the oil and replace it, it takes a few seconds (even as much as 15 to 20 seconds) before adequate pressure is formed to supply oil to whole engine (one of the reasons why you should not rev the engine immediately after oil replacement). With the Flo filter we noticed that the oil pressure was built in less than 10 seconds. Flo claims a flow rate that is 7 times higher than paper filters. This seems to be borne out by our above observations.

    I am impressed by this abilities of this filter and will consider it as an essential upgrade of all my future bikes.
