      Why buy when I can borrow yours?

        Great find TV... Just for another update for people going for their 3rd service and planning to get spark plug changed. Ninja 250 uses NGK CR8E , which is the same fitted in R15 and costs only Rs 75.. so a net saving of (275 -72 =200) * 2 = 400 bucks...

          As I had mentioned some pages earlier, ninja chain costs about 7,000 bucks. The specs given by Kawasaki are - Enuma chain EK 520SR - O2 - 106 links.
          However, found out a good quality manufacturer - ROLON - L.G.Balakrishnan & Bros Ltd.

          The company name is L.G. Balakrishnan & bros Ltd. They are No. 1 OEM supplier of Drive Chains with 70% market share and around 50% in the Replacement market. They have 6 factories in India and 5 offices out of India.

          Spoke with a guy in LGB's Pune branch. He was extremely friendly and promised to enquire with Head Office and call me back once he gets any concrete information. In the mean time, he suggested that in case of emergency, I can use Karizma chain by removing some links. It has exact same pitch, pin dia etc.

          Today received a SMS and call from him that the R & D of his company has manufactured two pc. of x ring chains and they have been despatched to Pune. Quadra X-Ring design increases chain life from 1.5 to 2 times longer than a standard O-Ring chain.

          These chains should reach Pune latest by Friday.

          The MRP - Rs.1880/-

          Great find...the Karizma chain link pitch is same at 520 with 108 links..But this is non "O" ring type,and so like you have said may be used after removing TWO links,for emergency purpose ...till you get the better alternate...
          Many cost effective alternates coming for the Ninja 250.....should put a smile on many Ninja owner's face and their pockets healthy.

            However, after searching around on EK Motorcycle & ATV Chain, I was unable to find the O2 variant.

            I found this price atrocious so started hunting around for an alternative. Found that all the alternates abroad also cost equivalent. So started a hunt in India. Found out that no one manufactures similar chain in India.

            However, found out a good quality manufacturer - ROLON - L.G.Balakrishnan & Bros Ltd.

                          • I think we should sum up all money saving tips/ spares on the first page of this thread. So that they become easily accessible for everyone.

                            Can the thread starter edit his first post and put in details of following - (please add if I have forgotten anything)

                            1. FZ16 hugger by Bluevolt
                            2. Fiat Palio bulbs instead of stock bulbs
                            3. TVS Jive indicators instead of stock indicators
                            4. ROLON chain instead of stock chain
                            5. R15 spark plugs instead of stock spark plugs

                            May be answers to certain routine questions can also be incorporated there.
