              One is definitely the coolant reservoir overflow pipe and the second is the fuel overflow pipe.

                  By 'hand brake' I am assuming you mean the front brake.
                  Yes if you are not using the front brake and your rear is sliding and skidding even at the speeds of 140kmph, its normal.

                  Its normal because you should either only use your front brake or use only 20% to 30% of your rear brake in any given situation including emergencies.
                  Good Luck calculating how much 30 % equals to lever travel. I suggest dont use your rear at all.
                  Its a SportsBike..rear brake is next to useles most of the times. Unless if you got C-ABS equipped to your bike.

                  one day when i become rich i but ducati and then I race with cars. not now.

                    If am not wrong you have written 140 by mistake, its 40
                    and thanks for advise of using front bank, i fear will make a stoppie ( am assuming am using right word)

                    so does all of you use front brakes only or combination of both
                    well anywys let me try

                      No not by mistake...the point I wanted to get accross was even if u use the rear brake at speeds way above 40kmph (like 140 or 240kmph which is way way above 40kmph) u will still end up locking ur rear.

                      Shall I be very honest to you ? If you fear that using your front is gonna make you stoppie the bike then please head towards a deserted good piece of tarmac, a private road or something and practice braking there EVERYDAY for atleast 30mins. Chuck the rear brake..dont bother... and just focus on the pressure and the feedback at the front brake lever while u brake hard.

                      Do not exceed speeds of 80kmph untill you get your braking right. On the Ninja 250R it is very important. You might think I am being paranoid but it is a very discomforting thought that you could lock your wheel at 40kmph and not know why it happened.
                      Hope you are wearing your gear too.

                      Cheers and enjoy ur bike and bear with me for dishing out an unwanted piece of advice.

                            Yeah!! this is the best way to ride the bike.
                            The best way to learn it is on the mountains on the ascends where u can shift down and blip the throttle bcos it gives u a better speed control.
                            Avoid practising it on the descends thou!!

                            Still remember the experiments with it..Did it on my bullet from 5th gear straight down to 1st and blipped it like crazy. The rear locked and swung like a pendulum. The pillion got down and swore on me that she would never get on the bike again!!!

                              I dont think so, I would not go for another twin if I already have the 250R.
                              Just my opinion.

                                At the speed of 40 , all it takes is a gentle squeeze by two fingers to being down the speed.You should never even need the rear brakes if you are riding within city limits and riding sane.
                                The 250R's rear brakes are very very powerful. Dont use it unless you get fully used to it.
