      No sign of a number plate! Stickering of number pending.





      No saree guard.





      GPS fitted on to the reservoir.





      RAM mount used: Part Details
      I already had a mount for my 220. So just bought the piece that needs to be fixed on to the bike, for the Ninja. Rest are detachable, so can be used on both.

        Riding at 60kmph in 6th gear at 4k RPM has gotten me 30 +
        U sure u got 16 ?
        I checked and double checked that very moment.. had filled in a full tank when i got the delivery, the yellow light blinked once and i rushed to the nearest petrol pump, filled in 11.67 ltrs with 187 kms on d odo.. That doesnt even make it 16!

        Will check it this time round too. Had got a call from someone in PBK asking for a feedback, i informed him about the mileage, to which he said it'll take a few 100 kms to get it right.. is it supposed to be that way?

          Did you have to use washers to fill the void which the Saree Guard left behind? Bandhav was telling me that the bolts in the Indian version are longer to fit the saree guard, so it becomes loose once you take the guard off.

            Don't go by quick mileage figures. Take your time and measure tank up to tank up. And be patient, nothing can go wrong that bad. Every time I did a tank up, (almost to the brim) I got a consistent 260-280 kms before the fuel indicator came up. When I did the math, it worked out to 22-23 kmpl all the time. And I did this entire exercise 3 to 4 times in a day.

            Quick tip: When the fuel indicator comes up, just reduce your speed and be soft with the throttle and you'll definitely make it for another 40 kms without any fuel pump heating issues.

                    Hi, just wanted to know: Is the GPS mount specific only for the GPS device or can we even mount a camera on it? If so, is the mount available separately? and cost too

                      Wait a bit and have a little patience. Dont tell PBK guys so early to fiddle with the bike. 16 kmpl is extremely less as thats in the R1 area and many Ninja owners are getting way better FE's.
                      In a FI bike, chances of varying FE in diff bikes is very less.

                      If am not wrong, isnt 91 Octane fuel recommended for Ninja, hope you are filling that only. Ride smooth.
                      Fill from a reputed fuel bunk, tell him to fill only till auto cut and not full to brim. Ride 100-150 kms, get back and tell him to fill till autocut and then see the results.
                      No way the kwacker can return such a low FE.

                        Mounts are available for various gadgets like GPS and phones to iPods. Try to google for "RAM mounts". They are pretty good. The one I have is for my GPSMap 76CSx model. You can get one depending on the model, and where you want to fix it. Eg, Bike, car, or which bike, etc.

                        When you talk about cameras, they have a different mounting system. I'm not sure if there are RAM mounts. But then, if there are, then you can try one out. In that case, you can use the common parts between the camera and GPS which will save you some money.

                              • @bluevolt: Exhaust note has completely changed,its way too deep.Was very loud before installing the power tip sound suppressor.there are dozens of video on youtube.But trust me they all sound different .For conclusion you have to hear it in person.My first preference was area P exhaust.But they dont manufacture a slip on.
                                Anyways would try to upload a drive by video next week .
