    What nonsense. They obviously messed up the paint job and are trying to cover up now.

The 17-035 and 17-046 are specific for the 250 and 300 respectively as they both come with ignition timing. Ignition timing is used to advance the ignition to produce a little bit more power, but then you can only use premium fuel.

          I don't agree-it is just a simple non-metallic green color and you are getting the whole part painted.
          It is possible to match ANY color-my local painter has done it countless times for various metallic colored cars&bikes in front of my own eyes, with clear coating to merge the touched up part. The difference is not even possible to identify.
          Looks like the SVC folks sent the bike outside to some painter who did a shoddy job&they just don't wanna accept it.
          You have two options:
          1. Pursue it seriously with showroom if you want it to be done for free.
          2. (What I feel you should have done in the first place) Take it to a good local painter and get a re-paint job done with clear coating.
          Either ways, the shade should match 100%.

            • Kawasaki Ninja 250r .... and why you shouldn't buy it!

              Hi xBhp,


              I visited this site many a times, as a lurker mostly. I was here forall those customer reviews. The Ninja 250r got many of those a yearago! So... I decided to buy one for myself. Now I'm gonna list allthe reasons why you shouldn't buy one......


              When I first bought the 250r, in Jan 2012, I was passionate, excited,and didn't care about the missing bootspace that a car would provideme. Within the 1 and a half years from date of purchase, I've beenexposed to the much more practical sides of life. Unfortunately, myKawasaki met with an accident on 20th December 2012.Subsequently, I submitted the bike for repairs in early January 2013.From the date of submission, to the date of writing this post, Bajajhas not delivered my motorcycle back to me on various miscellaneousgrounds. The service center in-charge at the Bajaj Probiking ServiceCenter informed me that my motorcycle would be repaired within 14days. However, this deadline was not met. Even though they had my 3.2lakh sports bike in their garage, they told me that repair work wouldstart and motorcycle spare parts would be shipped only upon paymentof money upfront.


              As if it wasn't a big enough blow, the cost of repair came out to be1.5 lakhs. Parts such as the fuel tank cost 27,000 INR. The left andright fairings cost 12,000 INR each which is 24,000 INR total. Thelist went on and on. I was left with no choice but to pay an advanceof 75,000 INR via post-dated cheque (05th April 2013) inthe 4thth May 2013, I lodged a complaint onthe Bajaj Customer Service Hotline. Mr. Kishore, Bajaj Autos, got intouch with me to follow through the complaint. After looking into thematter, he said all the missing spares would be brought in fromservice centers across India. He also committed to a deadline of 2days.


              I was ecstatic... After months of waiting for my prized possession,I'd finally get it back to me. However, this deadline was never met.On 3rd

                Unfortunate that you have had such a harrowing time with your motorcycle. It is sad that in India consumers are taken for a ride without any qualms by distributors and companies alike.

                Hope you get your problem resolved soon.

                  Sorry to hear about your plight. I think Kawasaki should seriously consider setting up base in India if they want sell their bikes here. By the way which service centre did you give your bike to and in which city. Did you claim insurance?

                  Have you considered getting the bike fixed somewhere else other than the authorized centres?

                    This is in Hyderabad. Bajaj has setup the one service center only. The service center itself is Sri Vinayaka Mobikes Pvt. Ltd. They are an authorized service center from Bajaj.

                    As for other avenues; well, if you do that, Insurance will not pay you any sum. I'd have to shell out another 75k from my pocket. Only "authorized service centers" are allowed to swindle you.

                          Hello there!
                          Its been a long time and here I go again with my present status:

                          Total Kms: 18000 (4th Service Done)

                          Have been touring a bit less due to summers. Recently did a 760kms up & down trip to Suryalanka Beach(AP). One more green company was a 2012 Ninja 650R and man I should say it was a great combination
                          Low End Pull Vs High End Rush

                          Some Pics attached Below:

                          Btw, my chain is weared out due to wrong alignment done by the service personnel during the tyre change. Bad luck for me but I have to replace the chain very soon.

                          I have spoke to Rolon Marketing Head for Andhra Pradesh and he has quoted Rs. 8,875/- for Chain + Sprocket Kit. He did promise me 15-20% discount which will come to 7-7.5k though.

                          Wanted to find out if anyone is aware of the present Chain and Sprockets price from Pro-Biking?

                          Vortex is one more option but thinking that shipping and other things are a bit tedious!

                          Request your help guys

                          Update:
                          I just inquired with Probiking Center, Hyderabad and below are the prices:

                          - Drive Chain: 7625/-
                          - Front Sprocket: 1500/-
                          - Rear Sprocket: 2700/-
                          - Total: 11825 (With 7% tax added, it comes to Rs. 12600/- Change)

                                As per what I have experienced with the IRCs, the dry grip is excellent. They're basically touring tyres that last reasonably long as well.
                                The wet grip, I felt is ordinary. The Dunlop tuff grip tyres I'm using now provide a better wet grip.
