    How exactly did I help you to deserve this special thanks?
    You may note my query on tips on buying a used ninja on around 31-May-12. Where you had given indirect replies to my query, on its performance, would be price etc.

    Neverthless, thanks again
    Every time i am able to change my bike's engine oil, i feel like passing another semester amongst thousands, of being a proficient rider.

        I replied - between 8 - 11 k. 8k is where we have peak torque and 11k where we have peak power.

        There is no discussion about race track / road. 8 - 11k is the ideal speed band for each gear.
        I am in my running in phase. Like I mostly do 50 - 60 kmph. I can see that the bike comfortably cruises in 6th gear. Then someone said that I would be putting strain on the engine making it pull hard. But if I run in 5th gear, the speed at 4000 rpm is too slow. 6th gear is cleanly pulling from 38 kmph upwards. Didnt try anything below that. That was the context of my query.

        • Is the coolant issue sorted out? Slowspeed, why no posts after you got your bike?

            You would surely not be lugging the engine if you ride around 3-4,000 rpm in 6th gear. Go ahead without worries.

              Thanks Vishwas.... else wouldn't have come to know about the grips under warranty. I finally got them replaced...!

                Anything and everything is covered under warranty. All the parts (apart from consumables) fitted on bike should last for its life and that is what a company tells us by offering a warranty.

                Only hitch is convincing company people.

                  Guys, just got my bike delivered after the installation of the roller sensor.
                  But I am having a problem. When I gave the bike in for service my Km reading was 1850 and when I got it delivered it was 1867. when I asked the guy he said he had taken it for a ride to test the bike. But 17km? I don't understand the point of it? He took it for a 17km ride to test what? He could have taken it for a maximum of 4-5km.
                  Any of you people come across these type of issues??

                    1. Roller sensor gave up and after week of torture they finally got the sensor.
                    2. The gearbox now is ROCK SOLID. Too hard , so had tell them (Don't really know what they would do for a hard gearbox)
                    3. Removing the saree guard and also the number plate bracket
                    4. The tail light has literally come out so told them to check on it
                    5. Some problem with the clutch switch ( don't know what that is).
                    So if you guys have encountered similar problems please do let me know what the solution would be and what it really means?
                    Good day
                    Roller sensor gave up?...What do you mean by that?

                    I am still riding the bike with the glitch.Shuts down completely when revved beyond 9krpm. Even the gear shifts feel hard but after adjusting the clutch its running fine. And i have exact same problem with the rear tail lamp, it came out of its 'fixed' area and seems loose with a wide gap.

                    It seems both our bikes have the exact same issue. Did you try revving the bike after the replacement of the roller sensor?

                    And yes, 17kms is too long a ride for a test.

                    • Rohit, If it is that you gave the bike to Jeeva, You dont have to worry much.

                      I think he might have taken it for multiple rides to check if everything is OK. Check if the bike is alright, dont worry much about everything else.

                        I had faced this problem before. In my case it was close to 50 kms . I gave the bike for an oil change but they took 6 days to deliver and when I got it the low fuel lamp was glow(when I gave the bike it had enough fuel to go over 50 kms before the low fuel lamp would glow). Now I don't mind these things because I am fed up with those d**k heads.

                        btw, is there any problem if we don't change the spark plugs on time? Mine is cloked over 18 k kms and had recently done the 4 th service. Service manual recomends to change at 12 k but they didn't changed it in 3rd service. This time I said them to change it when I gave the bike. But when they delivered the bike after 3 days mechanic said he forgot (some other things too). Same is with the valve clearance. I can hear a slight tappet noice like sound but mechanic says it is perfectly fine. And they still couldn't fixed the weired noice coming from the front wheel. As someone clarified here I asked them to grease the speedo worm assembly, but no use.

                          You can change the spark plug yourself or at nearby mechanic. R15 spark plugs are straight fits but the originals also don't cost much.

                          This is most probably chain tensioner noise. It feels like tappet noise but is not.

                          • Green Paint Job?

                            Hi Friends

                            Has any one you got their Ninja(part of it or whole) re-painted for a Green color scheme?

                            And anyone can help with Dupont or Delco color code for the same..

                            I had few bad scratches recently on my Leh Trip, hence need help.

                            regards

                              Yep exact same issues. I did rev the bike to its limit and nothing happened its perfectly fine but while changing from 1st to the 2nd gear I still kinda have the same problem of the gear being wayy to hard. And as I've mentioned earlier its just with a batch that these particular problems emerge.

                              Bro . Yea I know he's excellent but I am afraid that it was not him who rode the vehicle. It was the other guy forgot his name but he told me he took it for a ride to check if the bike really had the sensor problem (Before installation of the roller sensor). Jeeva anna took it for a ride when I had come to take the bike for delivery. Jeeva anna took it for a 3km ride but the other guy did a whooping 17km for no reason as I had already told him that the bike had the sensor problem. Just to confirm if the problem persisted he took it for a ride.( That is what he had told me)

                              • I saw 3M bike care being rolled out on Bajaj PB in Ghatkopar Mumbai.
                                Mumbai guys can take a look - I have heard it is worth the cost. I will be taking mine soon.
