    As you said, I have contacted the TVM pbk to change the left handgrip (loose) under warranty. After contacting the service engineer they are saying the grip is not covered under warranty. Now what to do?

      There is a customer service number in the manual. Call that number and complain.

      It is important that the bike is not ridden constantly at the same RPM level. Vary the revv's, dont use engine braking since it loads the engine too much, a bit over the recommended revv's during run in (1k-2k over and above recommended) is fine. If you have succumbed to temptation and revved the bike more than this it's still ok as long as its not a regular thing. Engines dont fail if they are stressed once in a while Just ensure the engine doesnt overheat and ride easy. Brakes and tires take almost 200 kms to break in too so grip levels will be less during the initial stages. Take it easy and dont try cornering hard or panic braking.

        1. Ask them why is it not covered. All parts are covered against manufacturing defects. If the grip is unable to stay on handlebar, it is not your fault and it needs under warranty replacement.

        2. If they still refuse, ask them to give that in writing.

        3. Write a gentle mail to Bajaj. Point out that there is no way you can damage the stickiness of grip so it is a manufacturing defect and can you please get it replaced under warranty.

        4. Call up local Bajaj service engineer and point out the above facts to him.

        Any or all of the above steps will help you in getting it replaced under warranty.

        • My Ninja's battery is down i think. First it happened when i had to ride 2 hours in peak traffic (& Sun was blazingly Hot) - So radiator fan was ON all the time. I let the bike cool down for about 6 hours and thankfully it started again, and i rode back home.

          This morning, the bike would not start, I guess the only way is to push start the bike. I do not have the time to take the bike to PBK till the weekend, so before i take it to PBK is there any work around i could do to start the bike normally ? Thanks :-)

            Push start will work just fine
            But I can't believe the battery would drain. Are you sure nothing else has conked out?
            Even the console is not lighting up?

              Push start it once....go on a longish 15-20 km ride in evening / night and I do not think you need to go to pbk at all.

              Another alternative is to use jumper cable.

              Still another alternative is to take out battery, give it to a nearby battery seller. He will recharge it and return the battery to you.

              • If the battery is completely gone, then even push starting the bike I am not sure will work. Even if starts, soon the bike might start to mis-fire and will go off.

                ^Does the engine crank when you press the starter? If you remove the front seat then you should be able to see the battery. But im not sure whether you can remove it with that or you need to open the side fairing as well. If you can remove it, then either you can charge it or replace it with pbk(if under warranty).

                But just beware that if the battery is gone then even charging wouldn't hold for too long.

                  I told them there were lot of pune bikes grips were changed under warranty for the same reason. He again called the service engineer and he rejected. He says it is loose because of normal usage and it is a normal thing etc. I asked them how can I make it loose? but appeal rejected. Anyway I think I need to complain. Thanks for your help, I will follow the steps...

                  • I tried push starting couple of times, but the bike did not start (may be it was not effective enough) - will try it again tonight. The engine does not crank when i press the button, It gives a wierd sound and the bike restarts (the lights go off and come back again)

                      I had a similar issue and experiencing the same lately too. Does your bike makes a whizzing sound when you try to crank it? Can you hear fuel pump start when you crank it? If yes, then battery may be fine, the starter motor may have corrupted. Push start the bike & it will start. You may need someone help.

                      I own a P220 Fi, so thought of sharing.

                      • It is surely the battery. Else the lights won't go off after the starter is pressed. I see only 2 problems. Either the battery is gone or the RR unit is faulty.

                          Looks like the battery have some juice left but don't have enough power to work starter motor. The lights go off and on because of the load created by starter motor. In this situation push start will work. Do it in 2nd gear. Otherwise detatch the battery and charge it from a battery shop. The third option is, if you have access to another bike or its battery, it can be used to start your bike with some wires ( you don't need to detatch the batterty). Alternately you can use 9v battery with jumper cables, I remember I have read it in the service manual. Check it.

                          • Hi guys...saw this on Motoroids. Kawasaki is recalling some of the 250Rs that may have an issue with the drop sensor. May help some of us out here. I guess there are already some posts which were reporting this issue with the drop sensor..

                              Guys, I had given my bike for the estimate. Guess what? the estimate comes up to a whooping 1.5lcs without the side fairing! OMG! I've not yet seen the list for parts damaged and needed. But the guy told me that my frame(Chassis) has bent and I would have to replace the entire stuff which is 60,000rs. I am totally out right now. It wasn't a high speed impact but then how could the frame bend.
                              If the insurance don't give me a good clearance then I guess I will not repair my ninja at all. Because I seriously can't afford 1.5lcs at this moment!

                                This is a part of the ownership experience .Also keep in mind that PBK guys quote the very maximum - so there is certainly a chance that your bill will be much less than 1.5L, since some parts may not need to be replaced.
                                The frame being metal you will get ~90% of the cost reimbursed. I would suggest you go for the Frame replacement asap and replace the fairings as money comes in.(Claiming insurance for the fairings then is going to be tricky).
                                P.S: I am assuming your fairings are not that badly broken - from the pics I see.
