    What exactly is a paint guard?

    • Just transparent/textured pieces of resin which you can stick on to your potential scratch/damage prone areas. Like a tank pad in different shape(s), but transparent.

      I got one of these:

        See customization of a bike is absolutely personal choice. Who are we to judge anyone? he has paid for the bike and paid for customization and has complete right to do whatever he likes. Personally I also did not like the lettering but why should we post comments on it?

            I will only come to know in March when I get the A-tech ones on. This one should be a straight fit.

            JLPT 2, eh? Not bad at all - have you met level 1's out there at all in India? I would flunk massively if I sat for JLPT 1 myself.

              Finalising one of the designs -

              Putting the lower half of the sticker -

              Looks kinda bland

              Kawasaki Green shadow stripes being cut and removed -

              Carefully sticking the shadow stripes - ( took nearly an hour per side! )

              The finished look -

              the japanese lettering is kawasaki..

              Then stickering was done to the rear, an extension of the front tribal pattern, and also to highlight the dark rear, especially the underside.

              On came 250R stickers on the sides. sorry for bad pics -


              Some shots in the car's headlight. took nearly 7 hours to accomplish this. whew!!

              Or should i put this up as a separate thread????

              Sirji, I am most certain aware about warranty of ninja since I own one. Where does this guy mention about changing tyres? The caption specifically reads - 'Did some stickering on my bike today'. I believe we are discussing about the his stickering. I fail to understand where the question of changing tyres comes in.

                          Dude i would recommend you to order the B2 industries no cut fender eliminater,its the best imo and then comes the jardine.

                          I had orderd the shogun crash kit with all the other stuff,so dont know the exact duty i paid for the frame sliders.And yes ,the link mentioning the stuf is perfect.,Bit of hassle but would definately install them next week,would upload the pics of installation .
                          Orderd the Cf akrapovic slipon for my cousins ninja.expected this monday.Cant wait to hear how it sounds.

                            • Thanks! The black tail did bother me too - this is how the bike will look like after the change. I have not got my bike yet, so I simply photoshopped a picture from the net:

                                I agree the black tail is a bit out of place and it also makes the green look a bit smaller than the black Ninja...

                                For now I am thinking of putting some green stickers like the American 2010 Ninja 250R.

                                Opinions????
