    Ninja s last very long, though I've not owned one, I know friends and have read in forums bikes that have done 100k plus kms. So if you have your heart set out for multi cyl take it. Just do a small research on spares sourcing. Kwak spares are also expensive, a point to keep in mind.

      My 250 is now 6 years old. No mechanical issues yet.
      But consumables like chain\sprockets\tyres are pretty costly - and god forbid you crash.

      The equipment levels are also not as good as the Dominar (it is a newer bike after all) No ABS, fuel level indicator.

        Yes. Six years for mine as well. Never been to the service centre except for the routine services. Stock parts are expensive, but there are a lot of alternatives. As you've said, there are no tech stuff, but everytime it revvs past 5k RPM, I forget all that! Still puts a smile on my face every single time.

            • kawasaki ninja starting problem

              i have a kawasaki ninja 250r and i have maintained it very well but after bajaj and kawasaki tied up broke things become a night mare as im from north east india. spares became a burden for me. the engine gave me a humming sound and a bajaj mechanic told me that it is cam chain tensioner problem. i called kawasaki kolkata nearest dealer from imphal for around three months about spares parts shipping the manager told met send a mail and i did and from that moment he did not answed my call. i complained kawasaki official website but no help. the bike is very weak to start in the morning but it runs fine after driving for 5mins what could be the problem. battery is new one. i find a manual cam chain tensioner in aliexpress for 250r should i install the manual one in my 250r.also is it because of the valves clearance the bike have starting problems

                      Pretty reasonable, may be a slight above the showroom rate. The best thing being, all required spares/parts if not in stock can be sourced within a max time frame of 7-10 days unlike the SC waiting periods of 1-3 months.

                          The rates they quote will be including the shipping charges to your place; most of the time being by courier.

                            Any idea on alternate indicator bulbs? (Stock ones are costly)
                            Ninja uses a PHILIPS 12093 RY10W 12V bulb.. Not the usual one used for Indian bikes. The holders are 150 degrees apart rather than 180.

                            I have heard thats Vespa's use the same bulbs. No luck online though. As of now my left back indicator is solid and left front is kaput when I use the indicator.

                              I just replaced them with a similar looking one I found in local Auto shop. The shape was slightly different, but fit perfectly and worked.
                              Sorry, I dont remember the name. Did you try taking it to a local shop and asking for a similar one?

                                I did check out a local shop (By auto you meant automobile and not rickshaw right? )
                                The bulbs over there had the 180* holders, so didn't buy. Have ordered two LEDs from amazon - supposed to be plug and play.
                                Where exactly is the shop you bought it?
