    Please invest in good quality riding gear and ride with it at all times.
    I will keep in mind.Last week I bought gloves(alpineestars), axo knee guard, sparx lid. so now it is not an issue but just wanna know it is only me or not. I had dsg maze jacket before I had Ninja
    Now I ride with them all the time.

    31-32km/L sounds good. Try to get more than that.

      When it was under break-in , it was giving me 37...
      And i think someone has even extracted 40km/l from it too..
      Although i would say, these figures are impressive for a 250cc bike , but who actually cares , so i Rip it off..

Specifically it should mention that it is designed for use in wet clutches. This is because in a bike, the engine oil is designed to lubricate the engine parts and the gear and clutch, while in car's the gearbox oil and engine oil are different and have their own reservoir's.

                    Thanx for the pointers guys.

                    The Manual says SAE 20w50 API 'SL'/ above JASO MA, MA1, Ma2.

                    I wandered for Castrol activ xtra 20w50 every nook & corner in chennai as well as GP Road but all shops here are having only Castrol GTX ...

                    But I found MOTUL SEMI SYNTH oil available in my place
                    which costs 450 bucks per litre. Refer to the link I've given below & advice on the same.
                    5100 4T 15W50


                    I've planned to switch to Fully synthetic which is 300 V Factory Line 4T 15W50 only after 10000 kilometres on the odo.

                    So advice on 5100 4T 15W50 semi synth oil is suitable for Ninja or not??

                        I have been using 5100 since my second servicing. The oil is good and lasts the whole service interval atleast.

                                I have been using 5100 15W50 Motul SemiSynth oil since the bike clocked 4k kms. Perfectly suitable to go for this oil.

                                I change the oil every 5k kms and yet it has no burning smell or discoloration or change in viscocity. I change it a bit earlier just to be safe. The oil filter however is changed every 10k kms.

                                You will hear mixed responses to your query. Some say it protects the fairing but damages the frame in case of a high speed crash and if the impact is high.

                                I checked with the probiking service manager before i got my pair of Puig sliders and he recommended them. The puig sliders are mounted on flanges so any impact will transfer to the flange and in case of high impact the flange will take the beating and not the frame or chassis. My suggestion is to go for it. It will protect the fairing in case of a crash/fall (at the most you will have scratches on the fairing which can be painted). Unless the slider hits a rock or median in case of a fall and slide, it can catapult the bike causing worse damage.
