  • Finally I managed to procure Healtech GIPRO DS gear indicator from UK. The one from US didn't arrive for more than 2 & a half months and upon complaining the vendor has returned back my money. The one from UK arrived within 7 days through Royal British Mail and looks awesome. I will try and upload pics soon. Now the relay for the led tail light is pending.

      Hope you enjoyed your day with your friends

      After a week full of tension and frustration my Ninja is back in Action and it was all due to fake oil that I had unknowingly poured in my bike.
      Took the bike again to PBK yesterday(5th time in this week and it was twice last sunday that I visited there). Got the filter and engine oil changed to Bajaj Dtsi oil. The mechanic asked before doing all this that you had changed to Motul, why back to this told him I had suspicion for this oil as since when my clutch plates were checked.
      After changing,he took for a test ride and when returned immediately prompted that I think your oil was fake, bike feels much composed now.
      I changed to Bajaj oil as I didn't wanted to take chances if I get another fake oil.
      Learning : Learnt how could an oil make huge differences to performance, got to know much more about my bike when clutch plates were verified and of course double check your oil that you are giving to your bike, I did but my bad luck

      P.S: All thanks to PSR Sir, n_aditya, kirran, jd666. I was in constant touch and then were great help.
      Thanks to other members too who have given their inputs and helped to get to the root cause.
      Big relief to know that the issue was just with the oil.
      Have you noticed the difference immediately, especially at high speeds?
      Have you checked the oil bottle to identify whether it is fake?
      I bough the Motul oil from the shop (SP road) suggested by other members, so it should not be fake. I have to check the bottle anyway.....
      I was not available at the time of oil change, but I don't want to doubt the SVC guys before checking my bike....

        Performanceracingstore also is a dealer of Motul. Just ask them if they can get the Motul mineral fir the next time so that you have the oil from a trusted source

          Wasn't able to do high speed run but difference could be felt from the initial.
          It was all due to the fake oil because I zero down all other possibilities one by one and was left only 2 i.e. clutch slip and oil.
          Clutch plates were checked and found nothing and then it was oil. Verified the color of the Motul 5100 15W 50 SS at the time of pouring in the bike it was dark brownish in color but other users told me it must be light golden in color and it was not performing likewise as it was intended to do and after just 300KMS it turned all black. Yesterday changed the oil to Bajaj one and difference could be felt.
          In your case if your bike was performing all good before and you changed the oil and had an issue you must check your oil in first place before going for other possibilities.
          Hope things go out good for your bike soon.

              Glad things worked out well for you...and it was due to systematic ruling out of other causes...You were clear in your recollection of chain of events leading to the problem,so it was possible to narrow down the problem .
              Please ensure the 300 V does not turn out to be otherwise too...
              In other countries some Ninja 250 owners have used Shell Rotella " T " oil , meant for diesels, with very good result....Basically you need a good 20w50 oil of JASO MA2 spec.
              Good Luck.Ride Safe.

                Yes,sir that will be the main concern now while buying oil and will be checking some sources and verify their genuiness beforehand.

                    Sorry to hear about your experience from psr'jee & read about it here now - the fakermongers now has got into motul too .. damnn !! Yes 5100 15w50 should have been sparkling straw golden colour when pouring . Good that you noticed it and remembered .. tell everyone you can about the shop that sold you the fake and warn the dealer too . You'd do good to stick to mineral oil for now ... much less chance of fake there & good for your new bike too.

                    Shell's Rotella T is an amazing good oil - for all purpose use , although specified for diesel , shell themselves says it can be used anywhere petrol/diesel/motorcycle/marine/stationary engines . It's extra deteregency is a plus for stressed air-cooled motorcyle engines . Unfortunately , shell has no plans to sell it in India or elsewhere . They say that their US market alone consumes all the rotella they can make .

                      I was also not expecting fakes in Motul as I had called up Mumbai Motul CC and then found out the genuine sources here but still found fake one. Made a complaint to the Distributor regarding this shop but cannot escalate this issue to their higher officials as I don't have a bill for that which they might inquire.
                      When purchased this one, I expected my bike will perform much better than before but all this shit happened.
                      Nevertheless, my bike is going good now.

                      • I just got the bike's 1st service done from Shreeram Bajaj, Thane. I bot the Motul 15W 50 SS as suggested by 'Kairznin' from a dealer here for the bike. The engineer didn't had to do much in the 1st service, except for washing, oil and filter change, air filter cleaning and chain cleaning + lubrication. I was waiting at the PBK workshop while the above task were being done. It took around 2hrs for the service.They took my bike for washing soon as the job card was made as I had requested them to do the servicing on a priority basis cause I had to rush to work. The overall experience at Shreeram Bajaj was pretty good and I can recommend the service centre to others due to its quick service and a very helpful, informative and friendly service guy Vijay.
                        On the ride back to work I could easily make out the difference in the ride quality and I am sure it is because of Motul that I used in the bike as suggested by "kariznin'. (Thanks for the advice buddy)
                        Any day is a good day with the wind on your face.

                          Did you saw the color of the oil when it was poured in your bike ?

                            Its sad to know that you got a fake Motul Oil for your bike. Infact I bot Motul since I thot it to be a best brand available since you and a few others advised me. And in my case the bike is running excellent and the smoothness is felt at high rpm's also.
                            Newaz good to know your bike is running fine now. Beware of the fake products in your area is all i can say.
                            P.s. Motul SS is golden yellowish in color so the brown color was obviously a fake one.
                            Any day is a good day with the wind on your face.
