          Thanks... yes, I saw a lot of stuff from Beet racing, but it was very expensive and I did not think it was worth spending that much!

              • Applied the Yamaha Green Rim Tape. To be honest it wasnt easy, and the outcome was not perfect, but this will do for now.

                  Nice...
                  I think the difficult part is to maintain a constant margin on the rim wall and overlaying one tape over the next. I put 16 pieces yesterday, and I did start with a not so perfect overlay. After the first one, I got the hang of it!

                  • Whenever I buy a Ninja 250, I don't think I will just have to keep in mind about some ~3L odd,

                    liked everything except the half exhaust

                        2. Yamaha Green Rim Tape - Rs.300/-
                        3. Keiti Carbon Tankpad - Rs.900/-

                        And yes, I also checked the crash bobbins available at DSG. Cost is 6.5K and according to the DSG guy requires no-cut or modifications to the fairing.
                        Nice buy dude. That microfiber cloth is really good and I hope you are happy with it.

                        Please do let me know where I can buy the green rim tapes for my ninja. Checked with Orion Yamaha and they dont stock 'em anymore. Badly wanna buy a set for my babe.

                        What brand of crash bobbins are those which DSG is selling? I'm pretty sure some modification is required to fit them as there is no provision for a "bolt-on" crash bobbin on the 250R. Even the No-Cut frame sliders from Shogun will need grinding of the crank case cover to fit them. And it fits on the engine mount. Not a good option if you ask me. But curious to know which brand it is. Please let us know.

                        OMG, this bike looks so delicious in flesh. It was like comparing Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta Jones. LOL.

                        I use the ArmorAll Wash n Wax too and it does a really good job. If you still wanna wax the bike then buy Turtle Wax or better still Meguiar's wax polish. They are the best.

                        It still looks hawt Rahul. Looks like a custom short exhaust with carbon fiber finish. Loved it. Subtle yet very catchy.

                        Man what a lovely ride it was. We went to Nandi hills just after sunrise and it was so cloudy and foggy up there. Started to rain on the top and just as we were soaking in the beauty some jokers spolied the fun with loud music and stupid stunts with their cars. Reluctantly we returned back to blore. On the way 2 other jokers on pulsar's overtook us and were raising hands and cheering as if they won some race. What loser's !!! There is no dearth of them on our roads LOL.

                        I enjoyed the ride and it was nice to meet VKushal too at Nandi. It was a nice sight to have 3 Green Ninja's next to each other.

                        Thanks a ton for helping me with the tankpad Rahul. I appreciate it biiiiiiiig time.

                              DSG is selling PUIG frame sliders. These are 'no cut' too but from what I can make out, they are simply steel bars welded to a flange which bolts onto some part of the bike. Seriously doubt their efficacy in a real slide. In fact, I doubt that they would even take a standstill 'drop' without the flange bending - but I could be wrong.

                              I was planning the "Shogun" brand but did not know that they were bolted onto the crank-case; in which case we might be doing more damage than good!!

                              Am also on the look-out, so please do let me know if you find anything better.
