    Thanks for the help
    Actually ,I don't think you need to open the cap at all ,the hole is meant for the evaporated petrol to escape out to prevent build up inside -it causes the sound when it comes out like a small whistle .Nothing to worry about if that is the source of sound .

        Mumbai owners, Which are the good alternative bike service centers for servicing Ninjas?

        Current service charges of Ninja 250 is sky high. An hourly rate of Rs.1500 is just too much.

        Last servicing of Engine oil/Oil filter/Replacement of brake pad burnt me Rs.11000, out of which 6000 was labour charges!!

          Had my clutch cable break at 27000 kms.
          The Kawasaki Dealer in Bangalore couldn't arrange a technician to come over (My place is approx 25 kms from the svc).

          Finally went and bought the cable (Rs 1650) and had to replace it myself.

          The svc seem to have a road side assistance program (3k for one year and 4.5 k for 2 years). Will most probably invest.

          Overall: Not so good experience.

            Hello Guys,

            I am thinking to buy used ninja 250r. Can you guys plz help me to decide by sharing your experience with bike.
            How are you guys managing for spares?
            What about ownership cost?
            Does it make sense to buy 250 or should i put some more money & buy 300.

              No doubt one of the best bikes! Which is why i still own it even after buying a Ninja 650! The Ninja 250 is really fun and seductively beautiful!!

              But the cost of ownership will be high!! Service centres are hardly available for Kawasaki! They rip off the customers in the name of Spares!

              You wont go wrong with the decision of buying a Kawasaki! But do keep the cost of ownership in mind! The right side fairing of my N250 caught minor flame and when I asked how much it costs! They said it will cost me 2 night stay in Radisson Blu!!

                Thanks for the quick feedback bro.
                I am actually from automobile background. I can do service on my own to keep away labour cost. But worry is spares. Can we get regular spares like oil/air filters, sprocket sets like regular consumables easily?

                My wife is suggesting to buy a new dominor but I want to have some thing which provides experience of super bike

                  The problem with the Service Centre in Delhi is! They are reluctant to sell the spares at the counter! As in! If you want to buy the spares! You will need to get it fitted there only!

                  However, there are multiple after market brands selling spares at lower cost! Like the air filters/oil filters, chain sprockets, fork seals etc

                      Good to know at least we can get after market spares to keep ownership cost lower.

                      What do you think bro how much is the price I can pay for 2012 ninja 250 for a good condition bike.

                      Can anyone help me to find a good one here in Bangalore.

                        It is the same case in Bangalore as well. It is much cheaper to get OEM spares from US

                          But is the 250 still supported till now? I had spoken to Kawasaki in Bombay and they have flatout told me that there would be no support nor parts for the vehicle.

                            It really doesn’t matter! We get spares outside of India! At cheaper cost! Ninja 250 is one of the best quarter litre bikes in the world and is renowned by many!! Kawasaki India is shaming this beautiful poece of machinery!

                              How can Kawasaki do this yar it will badly impact company reputation. I work in T1 company & as per my knowledge OEM has to provide spares for already 10years after stopping production of any vehicles.
                              I know R&D guys working in Bajaj let me check if they have any idea about it.

                              Now Kawasaki doesn't have any link with BAL this may effect some of the things.

                              What about reliability of engine?
                              Can anyone help me to buy 1 in Bangalore.

                                Wow! that is bad news!
                                No such indication from Bangalore Kawasaki when I last went to service.

                                If it is a well maintained bike, it will be bulletproof. No worries.
