  • Dudes, the TVS indicator seems like an exact fit to anyone who see it. Awesome job.

    We must come up with many such more DIY's to potentially save a LOT of money for every Ninjette owner!

      It is indeed...In fact we removed the outer shell ,reflector,and front diffuser from the TVS indicator and retaining the OE rubber mount fixed it without any issues...and it took just 20 minutes.....And all parts got fixed without issues or gaps...I think if an attempt to fix the TVS indicator full assembly into the Ninja's present mounting ,then it would have worked out equally easy and correct...We may explore this later.
      Credit of course to Mr.Ananth for the bold step and perseverance in getting it done.

      • Hey guys I am in waiting period for NInja 250 since 2nd sep. last week i contacted PB vashi and manager said you can get you bike anytime but now when i asked him to deliver the bike on dassera so he says bikes are in pune they have to courier it to mumbai and
        I am scared that may be these guys are giving my bike to someone other by taking extra money though I don't know

          2. The rubber mount is locked to the indicator housing by the reflector's twin protrusions acting like circlip on the groove on the fixing rubber .So by fixing the reflector in place,on the housing the unit is locked to the rubber mount.
          3. The two connecting leads are color coded ..Black with white stripe is the -ve or ground connection,and the Green is the positive from flasher unit.
          4. There is just one screw at the back of indicator housing,to remove the front diffuser cover..The Reflector is snap fit on the black housing through small protrusions at the top and bottom...

          Thank you once again for the opportunity to learn.
          Awesome bro!
          One hell of a DIY

            Thanks Rahul. You were an inspiration for many others which is resulting in simpler DIY's like these! Hoping to see you back with a bigger bike soon!

              3: use Unadulterated fuel, plain unleaded is good, I don't think xtra premium is good for long run.
              4: You can switch to NGK CR8EIX after 1st svc.(why would you want to open the fairings of your new bike?)
              5: 28psi- front
              32psi-rear
              don't know about filling nitrogen though.
              thanx but i read somewhere that 300v is the best oil for ninja if a lot of hard riding is done ?

                    Excellent work there Ananth and PSRji. Well i did have to replace my indicator once and never even thought about such a good step.

                    NOw all we need is a low cost rear view mirror and a low cost fairing and we could really say bye bye Bajaj for normal wear and tear!!

                      It is indeed exactly same as Ninja 250 OE indicators,which is why I suggested it to Mr.Ananth..The rubber mounting stem is different in Jive's but it can be mounted easily with a little effort .

                      Thanks for the word of appreciation, will try to look at alternate mirrors,..... may be Mr.Ananth's Ninja can be the Guinea pig for further experiments..

                        Funny isn't it? When i asked the pbk why 1500 rupees for a indicator they said "Imported & Quality spare part will be costly!" - I cant wait to go back to pbk and tease them

                        For fairing, if you wont mind - you can look at a few chinese parts - they look ditto to the original fairing and also fits like the original, but how long they will survive is not known.

                        Other option is to order the full set of fairing, costs about 300$ in USA (EBAY)

                        Third option would be to ride it as a naked bike

                        I dont mind as long as it is useful for others and saved a lot of $$ for me

                            • since i'll be getting my ebony ninja in a week, will i be getting the 2012 model since it's already being sold outside or the 2011.

                                Yes, My post was just a reference. Even after doing the math - The imported one will still be cheaper since its a full set of fairing.
