    They had the sprocket kit with them or you had sourced it?
    I sourced it from a fellow rider who stocks spares for Kawasaki!!

    IndiMotard charged me 500 as labour which I found out to be pretty cheap! It involved lot of work on the Ninja 650 to be honest!! Wasnt easy to loosen the front sprocket bolt!

      Earlier is used to give my bike service to bajaj indranager before kawasaki and bajaj JV, but after the split, i had not done any major service on the bike from eternal service engg. but due to the subthrottle bady issue, i went ti indimotard for a regular cleaning and touchup , and they did clean the fuel filter and and injectors and some other minor niggle hear & there. and bill was a cheapest i have ever spend on the ninja service - 1200 including taxes, so going forward shall get my bike serviced from them.

      you can recommend my name and ask for anshuman at indimotard - 9448494080, he is a gem of a person and very patient to listen to your issues.

Cos, i remember they quoting 41k very recently for the Throttle body assy which is felt is pretty close to SVC pricing with confirmed sourcing time frame of max 30-35 days.

      I shall recheck with them again, they quoted me the prices from Europe import and they told 70k. thanks for the update.

      For chain and sproket kit , check for rolon from motorcycle house on JC road should be around 9k.

            How much does it make sense to pay for 2010 model with 60k odo covered?

            Can you let me know major points which I need to check in used ninja 250 which shows sign of reliability.

              My suggestion would be, you would be better to stay off N250 for the following reasons.
              - This bike was discontinued in 2013 and was replaced with N300. This was replaced Throughout the world. Not just in india.
              - Procuring parts for newly discontinued bike is something easy, however for a bike which was discontinued almost 5 years ago doesn't make any sense. No matter how good the bike is.
              - Procuring parts for a completely discontinued bike is always expensive. Be it ebay or any online sellers. Because they know that you have no option and they charge a premium. You can maintain a N300 at this cost.
              - Considering the age of the bikes, you might have to replace many parts (Tires, chain, TB cleaning, brakes maintainence, service) and other investments initially. These jobs costs a ton.
              - You can buy a new 400 CC bike with the initial cost you would be paying for a N250 and stay happy with support from the brand during its warranty period.

              Considering these, try to look for other options in my opinion. If you want only a Ninja, then look for Ninja 300. That could be easier to maintain.

                Thanks for your honest suggestions bro.
                I agree with your point.
                I will check other options in the price point.

                  Also do consider new and modern equipment which are coming as standard with Dominar. i.e. ABS, Slipper Clutch. It doesn't make much sense to buy a way too old and discontinued model of Ninja in 2018.

                    Yup now I have only 2 devil's in mind.
                    Dominor & duke 390.
                    Duke 390 is a lakh costlier than dominor but hold breath with its beauty in power & safety.
                    Dominor on the other hand a good VFM, all rounder with decent styling.

                    Which one do you vote for & why?

                      Beneli tnt 300, if you really want a twin cylinder, like ninja.
                      If you just want power, it has to be either dominar or duke.

                        Yup may be I can consider this as well. My friend bought one year old R3 a used bike. Old owner had put loads of extra fittings. Bike is really great to ride.

                        I will consider both to the equation.

                          Bad luck strikes!
                          My dashboard lights were not working and I was trying to source the bulbs from Australia.
                          But gave the bike for a service and tada! Rats have gnawed my wires.
                          The entire wiring harness is going to cost me 20000 bucks. Will have to find some workaround to the cut wires.

                          Any suggestions on how to avoid the rat problem?
                          I will order those glue traps soon.

                          P.S: The bill for this service came to 16k. Replaced my throttle cables, overhauled my front brakes and replaced the front fork seals.

                            I recently changed the Dashboard bulbs to white LED!

                            Before changing to LED



                            After changing to LED



                            For some reason, the fuel reserve indicator and winker Indicator didnt seem to like LED so had to use the stock bulb!

                            Got these bulb from Ali express and these are called Push bulbs! Available in Karol Bagh for cheaper price [emoji51]



                            This is how the under the dashboard console looks



                            In the process, upgraded the headlight bulbs to LED as well



                            Stripped her naked!



                            Will strip her once again some time soon to clean the silencer!

                              You are a pretty hands on guy

                              I would guess the reason the indicators did not work is because LEDs primarily have polarity - and normal incandescent bulbs don't.

                              Indicator bulbs need to accept both your left and right indicator current. Since bulbs can accept current either way and LEDs only one way -it will work for only one side.

                              I have managed to source the bulbs from Australia - but now it looks like my bulbs are ok. Just the wires are cut. Have brought a rat repellent spray and will buy those glue boards when rains start.

                              How did you manage to fit the ballast for the LED in the headlamp? any DIY videos?

                                Thanks for the compliment [emoji6] it was my first time opening the 250! I have opened the 650 side fairings! I was a little scared as to what to do in case something breaks [emoji17]

                                Hope for the best! These rats can be a big scum! They bit my dads car wiring and its been a nightmare since then for the car!! But using some tobacco leaf helped! And if you stay in your own house, buy yourself a pet cat and the trouble is gone

                                No Videos brother! I was doing the work in 3rd basement and i was dying off due to suffocation! Thanks to my Ertiga, i got to sit inside the AC for sometime during the work in progress!

                                I used zip ties to tie the. Ballast outside the headlight assembly and if you are talking about the headlight bulb dust cap, i ordered a pair of dust caps before i started the work!
