    Yesterday got the 12k servicing done at PBK.

    Cost incurred = 2000 bucks(1100 vacuum syn +700 labor +100 consumables+taxes) .

    Not much of a work on the bike as it was running in near to perfect condition , though had a bit of vibration which got resolved due to valve adjustments.

    Did not go for spark plug change as they looked in good condition.Though have kept and extra spare spark with me.

    The rear brake had lost its sharpness, so got the brake fluid changed. But instead of using DOT4 they used the DOT3 and prasanna told that they use the same for all the bikes.

    I told him the DOT 4 is recommended but he told that DOT3 won't make a big difference, though i will go for a change back to DOT4 on the 18k service.

    Their was a light difference in how both the cylinders were firing, which got adjusted with the vacuum synchronization done.

    The bike now feels smooth back again.
    I would suggest to get it re-bled with DOT4. On longer ride, with brake fluid temperature raised, the brake performance will become inconsistent with DOT3.
    There's lot to it other than saddle....

          I think you have no knowledge about the Ninja 250r in India... It has an FI engine .carburrated ones are made for some other countries but not in India.. The Ninja have plenty of colour options on the 2011/10 model itself... But what we Indians get are Black(Ebony) and Green(Lime). I think that will remain same for Kwacker 2012 too...
          Ride, ride and ride.. But always do it responsibly..

                • Problem using After-Market Exhaust??

                  Do not remember who posted saying that after market exhaust causes problems for the engine. But just to clarify, it doesn't cause any major threat to the bike considering the engine or power. I have been using an after-market for more than 5months now and still my bike is the same.

                      Wipe the discs with a DRY cloth until the smudginess goes. Rest will become okay after riding a few kms. Also, I don't think its safe if you have a layer of diesel on your bike :P

                          Do not worry, just wash the metal disc with a bit of soapy solution. and then clean it water. then use the brakes for 50-100kms .. the brakes would be just fine..

                              technically you are in trouble, means your brakes will never be the same again. ten hut had this problem of his cousin oiling the brakes(old story). you can try cleaning the brake pads, but on bike like ninja better to put in new pads.

                              its a lesson for ninja owners not to have too much wash with professional service stations with no idea of super bikes. a dirty bike is always better than a clean unsafe bike.

                              the only place you can use diesel on a ninja is on the chain to wash it.

                              • Today I got the delivery of the green Ninja from Khivraj Pbk . I am adviced to use only speed or xtra premium, will there be any issue if I use normal fuel? Also I noted little mud splashes on the radiator (after I reached home I noticed it and I didn't ride through mud much, just for 1-2 metres), should I avoid riding in rains? will it affect the cooling system?
