      i felt that the stock lamps are good (both lamps on) for about 70 to 80 kmph speed night ride as far as visibility.

      what u feel about the PIAA in terms of speed both lamps on ?

              Cost me $100 a pair, so they better last up!
              did you buy the PIAA extreme white plus? they're not white?

              i currently have the osram megawhites in my ninja and they are definitely white. i'm hoping to buy them while i'm in the uk so i'd appreciate it if you clear my doubt

                They are not white as the Osram Megawhites. Has a yellow tinge to it and I feel much better than the Osrams. The Osrams works well on pitch dark highways, but gets lost in city riding.

                PIAA's all the way, though the pricing is 5x the cost of Osrams.

                  hey bro.. thnx for your reply.. i still have doubt that in delhi the probiking people are saying that green ones are not available as in 2011 manufactured but black ones are readily available. So if you just confirm me what month and year they have put on your RC smart card? as that is the original manufacturing month of the bike

                  • Ninja Vs CBR.

                    [QUOTE=harikeshpk;607333]the fuel injected 33 horses ninja is going to clip the wings of the cbr 250. the comparisons of the 2 bikes on most of the sites are between the carb version ninja and cbr which is FI, where some advantage results for the cbr. ABS brakes may be lot in theory, but the draw back is once you are used to ABS, you simply become good for nothing as far as braking is concerned(without ABS). this is most true for a first timer rather than an experienced rider.

                    In the days to come, we (Ninja owners) are going to face a lot of flak from people who do not know the A,B,C of motorcycles and engines, who will continue to make such senseless comparisions between the Ninja and the CBR. The stubborn argument about the Ninja being 26 P.S, a few pages earlier, was also an example of this.

                    CBR owners would like to think that all Ninja owners are fools for buying a bike for double the cost at which, they bought the CBR and some knowingly and some unknowingly will try to prove that the CBR is as good as the Ninja.

                    My advise to all the fellow Ninja owners is to smile and use a 'one-liner' I heard somewhere 'If I have to tell it..you won't understand'! and leave it at that..since we have the better bike, its only justified that they win the argument. Everyone gets something!!

                    • The Great Escape!

                      The worst will happen at the worst possible time! I was taking wife on one of the rarest of rides (she must have sat pillion 3-4 times in 1 year) doing above 90 on the highway and guess what?...my rear brake fails!! Luckily I hardly use the rear brake.

                      But I thought I would put it here, for it might be a lesson to the other riders in the group. The brake suddenly went kaput! totally failed, the lever would go all the way down. Since I rely on the front brake 90% of the time, I continued my ride and to my surprise, I found that after a little while, the rear brake started working again!!

                      The disc oil is on the lesser side, but I'm not sure that is the problem..I think its something else...spoke to Arif at PBK and he has asked me to get it down to the workshop. Will keep you guys posted.

                        In all probability its due to the low level of brake fluid. Also some air must have been present in the brake lines so that explains why your pedal felt spongy when you applied pressure.

                        Here is what one should do every time before riding their ninja out.

                        Pop the rear seat and perform the safety checks listed under the rear seat. It explains how to check the fluid levels for coolant, brake fluid, oil, etc. and other important checks.

                        Never neglect these safety checks. It can be very dangerous.

                        Glad you had nothing untoward to report.

                            Very well said.. some of my friends are already very excited about the Honda and discussing its booking prices with me , so as to make me feel low, that i got a 250 for double the price of a Honda. But only ninja riders know the truth, what our machine is capable of doing.

                              Hey Peeps,

                              I got myself a Green Mean Machine last week and have clocked 450km already. Planning a Krishnagiri trip to clock up another 200 odd km.

                              Funny thing - I was asked by the PBK guys what bike I used to ride before the Ninja. They were pretty shocked when I said this was my first.


                              Getting to 800km@4000rpm is sooo painful when the bike keeps crying to be pushed further.

                              I am trying to find a summer wear jacket with armor but was unable to find one either at the Cramster shop or planetdsg. Both are out of stock on L sizes. Any help is appreciated

                                thanks! yeah i too found the osrams inadequate for city riding, though they look amazing! will order the PIAA's H7 asap
