  • Probiking customer ID

    Does anyone have any information about the probiking customer ID?
    what is it, how to use it, where to use it?

    I got a mail from the Probiking guys in response to the booking of my Ninja 250R.

    the mail says"Dear Probiker,

    Thank you for visiting Bajaj Probiking showroom and showing interest in our flagship brand.

    Your Quotation ID is 00000*****

    For any Query call 1164631111

    Happy Probiking

    before this email, I got "Dear Probiker,
    Thank You for visiting Bajaj Probiking Showroom and showing interest in our world class products.

    Login ID:*************
    For any Query call 1164631111

          Narayanan takes care of TN, KA and KL. I tend to agree that its also a reflection of the dealer/owner involvement. Personally I think the Bajaj (PBK) engineers are a great lot.

          I had a major problem with my 650 on a recent ride to Goa and contacted the Goa PBK via Chennai PBK. The Bajaj PBK engineer waited on the street to flag us into the service centre and treated us with the utmost courtesy.

          PBK Goa had never serviced a 650 before, didn't have all the tools, not even the paddock stand for the bike (which is different from the 250) and had only received their first 650 for delivery the day before.

          What they lacked in equipment and experience, they more than made up in professionalism and enthusiasm. The PBK Service head there, Raju was in constant touch with Chennai and Pune on the phone for advice and spent most of 4 hours on his hands and knees or lying flat on his back, with the Ninja mechanic, Mahesh trying to solve the problem. This was because without the paddock, they could not put the bike up on a table. After a very systematic analysis and deduction process, they isolated the problem and solved it in what I must say was the most memorable case of " can and will do " I have seen in recent days.

          After identification of the problem, he immediately messaged his counter-parts of the issue for them to look out in their own territories. In the meanwhile, my friend Ravi who had kept me company while the bike was being attended to, could not go and get his Honda CB1000 water-washed after the dust and grime of the Chennai-Goa ride. So PBK Goa - in what might have been a first, cheerfully washed and cleaned his Honda for him! Imagine! A Bajaj PBK cleaning a rival Honda! Now that's customer service!

          The experience left us thoroughly impressed - with Ravi even commenting that it would never happen in a Honda dealership. Incidentally, Ravi also owns a 250 and a 650. For the remaining days I was in Goa, Raju kept in touch to enquire about the bike and if all was well. I was also contacted by Narayanan who wanted to make sure that all was fine.

          This attention to detail and customer service is something that I do not experience even at Honda and Toyota dealers when I take my cars for service, so for a bike manufacturer I'd say it's damned good! As for will I buy Kawasaki again, the answer is a resounding YES!

          I'm not a fan of Bajaj or PBK and have had my altercations with them on the sales front but when it comes to service, the peace of mind and re-assurance they offer has been impressive and I for one am not abashed to give credit where it is due.
          Hi Sunnyside, I'm new to the forum here. Bought my Ebony black ninja April 2011 and completed 1900km approx. I work in the uae and get a vacation only once a year for a month which explains the less kms. On the subject of your experience at the PBK Goa... I'm guessing it's the one just out of Margao! That's where i picked mine up from and Mahesh works outta there... My first servicing was done there and the guy is friendly and awesome. I live in Benaulim which is just about 7kms from there. Colva is the famous neighbouring village. I'm hoping to do 4000kms this time when i'm back in Goa around April. Wanna complete my second servicing before i fly back. Thanks to my job i was able to buy the bike cash down though it took almost my whole years savings to do so. The catch is.. I get to ride it only for a month a year.. But that's life i guess! Was wondering if there are any rides planned for that time of the year in or around Goa? I haven't come across any Goan Ninja 250 owners in this forum. Though there were quite a few bikes sold in Goa. On another note.... This forum simply rocks with all the experienced riders here. Feels great to know that you guys have each others back! When i was down last i only saw one other 250r rider and one cbr 250r dude. Let me know if any rides planned in and around Goa. Was planning to ride along and may ride down to Pune as well! Getting an Ixil Xtreme carbon fibre shorty to swap out the stock exhaust and hopefully a Pcv. Any views on the IXIL? My friend tells me it's better than the Yoshimura carbon fibre slip-on that i was initially planning to buy! Cheers!

          • Tail Tidy Fender Eliminator kit by R&G racing, for the Ninja 250r

            Does anyone here have experience with installin a Fender Eliminator kit. Picked up one here in the Uae and looking to get it installed once home. Was wondering if the Probiking guys would do it back in Goa. I'd pay them offcourse. The only thing that i'm scared of is the wiring of the new license plate illuminator that comes with it. By the time i'm home, the one year warranty period would have already expired anyways !! Any advice in case i wanna attempt it on my own? The wiring part may be tricky and i don't wanna screw up!!

              No. I am looking around for this here seen some vid's on youtube and it seems like a great way of changing the look of the bike without actually having someone paint it. If i don't find it.... I'm gonna need to find someone whose really good at airbrushing!!

                3M does the wraps for cars( they even help you design your own, that's what I hear). Not sure if they have done any for bikes, imho there shouldn't be any problem. Wraps are good, as it will protect the bike's paint from scratches also, when u drop it at zero speed.

                  Yes Jakrap, whatever I mentioned, that happened right in front of me. At every instance, when the service guy is about to do something out of line (like putting Bajaj Fork oil OR pouring oil without cleaning the inside of fork OR putting the spring back without cleaning), I stood there asking him / directing him to do the thing the right way.

In another scenario with the engine lube, some customers had a tough time explaining why a 10w50 grade is better for Indian conditions as compared to 10w40 specified in the manual (which is a copy from the US manual which has different climatic conditions!)
                  We gave this feedback to BAL, and they were more than prompt to verify
                  Generally most of us @pune do carry engine oil while going in there for change. But regarding the fork oil, (this being my first fork job experience ever) I didn't know that I'll have to carry the fork oil too.
                  And the whole idea of sharing this thing here in ownership thread is that next time, when someone goes for fork job, he/she is ready.

                  BTW, yesterday I checked Volvoline fork oil in Nana Peth area in pune. It's 175ml bottle priced Rs.55 (the shopkeeper offered the same for Rs.50). For the both fork of ninja, we'll need 640ml (hence 4 bottles). But there was no mention of oil grade on the bottle, that's why I didn't buy it. As always, as per the shopkeeper - "Sir, there is no such grading for fork oil. All fork oils are same."
                  @all, any idea on how good is the Volvoline fork oil (with no grade) for ninja250r?

                    Yeah absolutely no harm in using them. And you can change them as often as you like. One use per wrap! It's almost like owning a new bike every 6months or so. Posting a link to a video on youtube. Enjoy! YouTube - 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250R Vinyl Graphic Flame Wrap

                      • Ninja 250r rear seat cowl installation!

                        Hi guys just thought i'd post a link from youtube for the installation of the rear seat cowl for this baby. Getting mine in a few days and it's available in the probiking showroom in Goa if any of you are from Goa for Inr 4300/-. I did not find any discussion on this here. Guess it's too basic a mod. Hope anyone who needs this info, finds the video informative. It's so simple! Enjoy! YouTube - 2010 Ninja 250R - Seat Cowl Assembly & Tank Guard install

                          You should post them in the DIY section. I would be more interested in knowing where I can get the seat cowls? I saw some at goforkrp site... but don't know if its the original product or not.

                            This is an original product sold through PBK as accessory so this would not fall under DIY. You just need to remove rear seat and install the cowl.
                            Never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience.
