    Hi Sachin Ji, you being an experienced rider and owner of Ninja, I would like to ask your idea of HID Xenon headlamp for Ninja 650. Recently I had been to Bengaluru, went to Alpinestar store at Orion Motors at Near Forum Mall where I asked for Xenon headlamp, there one guy said that it costs Rs.12,000/- and one day of time to install it, and also mentioned that the Unit has to be import from USA. What do you say about the idea...please throw some light on this topic...

    My suggestion for the lights will be use the osram nightbreaker or philips xtreme and get a good set of aux for your bike. That should help.

    You can opt for Phillips Extreme Vision bulbs, as they are pretty good. Thats what I use in my bike. Otherwise, a pair of aux lamps would be good.

    Hi guys,

    Today morning I have taken my ninja 650 for first service and got it back in the evening. First service cost came around 6800 rs. Please find the bill below.


    And also I happened to see the 2017 ninja 650, z650 and z900 available for the show.

    Z900:


    Z650:


    New Ninja 650:


    And regarding my ninja 650, I planned to install frame sliders, swimgarm spools and buy paddock stand. Where can I get it in chennai? Frame sliders from Kawasaki showroom costs here 11k. Is it normally priced or huge?

    Thanks and drive safe

    Well, if you are very much thinking of going to HID, then you can also take a look at this,

    https://www.bikenbiker.com/products/...headlight-bulb

    Its a LED bulb, which costs about the same as an HID, as 2 bulbs are needed for the bike, but no modifications are needed to the headlight dome, as its just plug n play, so all you need to do is take out the old stock bulb and fit this one in that place, or else as others have mentioned can opt for Osram or Philips Xtreme vision, which are lot cheaper options, which even I am using (Xtreme Vision) on my Er6n, but when compared with the LEDs, halogens are no match though...

    That is almost 7000 rupees bill for first service. The Labour charges are rediculous. 3000 is asking for too much. The bill is not even printed. I think this must be a case only in Chennai. Others who ever is doing servicing now through Kawasaki, I would be keen to see the bills because this is too much seriously. KTM service outlets were so much more cheaper when compared to this.

    I paid 5155/- in March first week at kawasaki for the second service.

    One interesting point though. In feb i had dropped the bike and the left rearview mirror broke. Ktm workshop told me it was 4500+. I didnt go for it at the time and during the second service at Kawasaki i asked for it and they said it was 3300. Not sure if the price actually changed or the guys at ktm were charging so much more.

    Yes. The labour charges are way too high. Even I got to know from one of a fellow er6n rider that first service cost in Coimbatore is around 7500rs. By the way Kawasaki sales and service in chennai and Coimbatore both places handled by JMB groups. Any kawasaki riders from Chennai or Coimbatore please share your service cost info if you do it in JMB.

    Thanks.

    Yea, these are HID lamps, but what I had suggested was, just change of stock bulbs to LED ones, which I had put a link of the same as they need changing of the bulbs only, whereas installing HID means you may need to modify the headlight dome itself to accommodate the projector unit, but even the LEDs cost the same as the HIDs, but if cost was an issue, then you could go ahead and install the halogen bulbs from Osram or Philips Xtreme Vision as they are cheap, but when compared these halogens to LEDs, they are no match as LED bulbs are far more brighter....choice is yours..
