      It should be available at a yamaha showroom in tht case right?? Will they fit also for me or do i need to take it to Bajaj??
      the straight tape needs a applicator. Just take it to any sticker dude and he will easily do a neat job. Just remember this about the Yamaha OEM tape. One is the underside which has to be removed to stick the tape. The other is that it has a laminated sheet covering the top of the sticker, that also has to be removed once installing on the bike. ok??

        Just try to consciously close the throttle completely when you drive tomorrow..if the issue persists then it would be safer to go to prasanna... at least that worked for me...

          1st to 2nd is the biggest jump. So it is gonna make a THUD sound sometimes.
          I dont think the fall is resulting in this THUD sound. The guilt of having let the bike fall is playing tricks on your mind. The gear shift levers can take any sorts of impacts. They just damag/bend/break/melt and may undergo insANE shape changes but not result in any damage to your gearbox.

          Still...good luck with it !

            Do you wear safety gear all the time? Its a burden while commuting to office. I try riding slow

            Today i tried shifting gears keeping in mind the throttle position. It certainly helped, but still sometimes the THUD stood out in shifting from 1st and 2nd gear.
            Maybe I need to learn how to switch gears. WIth my Yamaha RX135 I never bothered.

              If I know I am gonna ride slow on the Ninja then I dont wear the entire gear.

              On the CBR as a rule of thumb I wear nothing short of a leather suit or full bionic protection. The CBR cannot be ridden slow

              Wolfpack I really think the THUD you are hearing is normal. Closing the throttle helps if you were doing it the wrong way.(not closing it i.e)
              Superbikes(considering Ninja a mini one) never have butter smooth shifts.

                Wear all the gear whenever you can

                It all happens in 0.XX secs, you just roll-off a wee bit for a mili-mili sec, shift up and open the throttle

                  Slightly offtopic: The Latest BMW1000RR comes with a gear assistant for additional 450 USD can help you change gears without even closing the throttle Try mounting it on the Ninja Then there would be no thud!!

                  @Tenhut, A lil post mortem here.. (Not to aggravate any injury but as a matter of fact only)
                  Whats the damage that ur gear took after the fall..?
                  What was the speed before impact and how did u manage to escape unscathed on a front-on collision?
                  Did u jump off the bike before the impact..
                  If there is a technique to do it please do let us know..
                  (Just like...u stand (partially) on your footpegs to absorb the shocks if the bike goes over some bump at high speeds.. kind of technique)
                  Might come in handy at a time when a truck comes too close!!

                    I have quite a different problem with upshifts. Not really a problem actually. But the upshifts are little too smooth, sometimes, there's not enough feedback to know you have shift-up. I guess this will improve as the running increases.

                      11k on my odo, and my 250R sounds a little rough and deeper at low rpms. I guess the behavior changes as miles pile on the machine.

                        It shouldn't be rough Rahul,may be some adjustment is needed
                        deeper/smoother/eager to rev shall be more like it

                              Actually, the figures are quite ok. As you get out of the break in period and start using the bike in your natural form, it would drop to around 25 kmpl.

                              If you ride as if you have stolen the bike and shift only after 11k every time, it would drop to 20 kmpl or so.
                              Never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience.

                                i agree with vishwas i am also getting 20 to 25kmpl on speed 97
                                lower than speed 97 feeling loss of power and engine beat(sound)
