    Dont also spray water into the gaps in the side fairing. There are some electronic parts which are exposed and vulnerable. If you must use the jet (?) use it in the wheel wells (or under the rear tail, front mudguard only).

    best bet - use a plain jane garden hose and spend the money that you kept aside for the pump on some goodies for the ninja.

    • Just a normal pressure spray from home tap would be enough. And on the fins just disperse the pressure with your hand.

        Saw a good deal on a slip-on for my ninja on eBay.

        Seller says it'll reach the customs dept. here in 12-15 days max. Whats the procedure after that? How do i get my product from customs? Do i have to pay duty? the item costs approx 600 USD incl. shipping and insurance.

        • ^^ if there is any duty to be paid, the postman will tell you when he brings the item to your house. It will take about 10 days for it to clear customs.

          If there is any verification or anything, or if they want you to come to the foreign post office and pay the duty there, you will have to go by yourself to clear the dues.

            I imported a Racefit Growler Exhaust from Racefit UK for a friends 2010 Gixxer just a few weeks ago.
            The exhaust was delivered by UPS in 3 days. No customs..no nothing...no duty...lol
            The guy I spoke to in Racefit organisation said 'dont worry we will take care of everything' after explaining him the duty structure here in India.

              Hey thanks JD. how much duty might i end up paying in this case (if any, worst case) considering the order value is USD 600 incl. shipping and insurance.

              • ^^ you will have to ask them to make an invoice that will be attached to the parcel. If they want, they can undervalue the invoice as well ( mark it for lesser than its actual price ).

                Depending on what category it comes under, the customs can be anything from 10-32.5 %.

                For eg, i ordered spare parts worth about 12k, and paid about 2,200 as custom duty on it.

                  Not sure how this works... I ordered my AGV helmet and a US site offers a flat $25 shipping, when I received the helmet the package was marked as a "gift"... so I guess that would also reduce the duty that you may end up paying,but not sure..

                      LOL. Infact i love the stock sound. This is only an itch that comes up once in a while. Was jobless and was browsing eBay and this came up. I think i'll buy a pair of boots and knee protectors first. This can wait. Maybe the itch wont turn into a rash.

                      P.S. Thanks JD, 10Hut and Gourav for the inputs.

                        A very experienced rider once commented to me that the difference between the kids and the mature riders was that the kids would concentrate on mods and jazzing up their bikes, while the mature ones would focus on honing their riding skills and spend their money first on quality gear - and THEN the mods on their bikes.

                        With your mature thought process, I'm sure that you will not be suffering from any kind of (road) rash in the future !

                        I'm sure the senior and experienced members would agree!

                          right on dot.. in fact riding gear should be treated on par with helmets when it comes sports bikes.

                              I am guessing if we get the bike cleaned and washed properly, this problem should not occur again.

                              More views on it are appreciated.

                              Exactly the same thing happened with me when I was returing from XBHP G2G in Bhandardhara. I was 3kms away from my home and the bike starting behaving abnormally. The idling was very high, there are big radiator noise. When checked properly, the radiator was covered with atleast 3-4 mm of mud from the ride. The next day I took it to the washing center and cleaned and and everything turned out normal.

                              • some custom duty gyan

                                i was just goofing around and found this on a shopping site. This is regarding the custom duty waiver when send as gift (somebody mentioned it few posts back).
                                This is from Shop in the US from India @ 20North - Millions of products, Thousands of brands page.
                                /* start */
                                Duty Free Gifting on 20North

                                As per Government of India guidelines, bonafide gifts sent from abroad, up to the value of Rs.10,000 addressed to any person residing in India are 100% exempt from customs duty.

                                This means:
                                • Any individual living in India can receive gifts. It is not required for the person sending the gift to be a relative of the person receiving the gift. There is no limit on the number of gifts that can be sent/received by an individual
                                • Gifts must be sent from abroad (sender must provide a non-India address) and paid for in USD using an international credit card, by using Paypal or Google Checkout. Bank transfers from Indian banks and Mobile Payments cannot be used for sending Duty-free gifts
                                • Orders totaling more than Rs.10,000 can be sent as Duty-free gifts long as no individual item in the order cost more than Rs.10,000


                                Important Notes:
                                • Sometimes, completely at their discretion customs authorities in India may deem an incoming gift as dutiable even though it meets the specified guidelines for a Duty-free gift. In such cases the courier delivering the product will collect applicable duty from the gift recipient before delivering the goods.

                                • We have observed that items falling under Consumer Electronics of value more than Rs. 2000 seem to attract duty even if sent as a Duty-free gift.
