Recommendation accepted bro.

Will order them next month. Do lemme know where you picked them up from and for how much. AFAIK, DSG stocks them for the ninja 250.

P.S. Nice pic. Looks hot with the rim stripes.

Some bikes have their own charm.

Nicely done simple mod jobs.

Some more nice pics welcome

Just came across this thread. Seriously, I never was pretty inclined to the thought of putting down 3L for a 250cc bike. After completing this thread in one shot, I now consider the N250R as a serious super bike. Congrats on the bike brother.

As you are looking into performance mods, I came across this particular mod few days ago in fb. Do check it out IMO it will look and sound great on your ride.



Ride Safe, Cheers. God Bless !

My personal favorite for the Ninja 250 is the M4 exhaust. One of the ninja owners has it on his bike and it sounds mad.

Pretty expensive for a slip-on and i'm gonna get one for my bike once the warranty period is over.

Search for the clip on you-tube.

Nice. Not very expensive too. The shogun no-cut () ones that I checked cost around 9k+.

Please let me know more about the installation part. How much time did it take, how its done and did Bajaj do it for you (if not, are they competent enough to do it as I'll need them to install mine when I order them).

There is a member on xbhp with the ID "superlife". IIRC he is in Delhi and has the M4 slip-on on his ninja.

Check out video's on you-tube for slip-on's. Only thing is listen to those where the sound is recorded in the open and not in a garage or enclosed spaces as the sound will be louder, meatier and deeper in enclosed spaces.

just rode a Ninja with 2 brothers. I loved it. He also had the baffles on so it wasnt in its loudest state. The sweet note you are referring to will be difficult to obtain in a parallel twin. The stock exhaust is the sweetest it can get.

Installation could be done by DSG as well, but my bike was in mumbai. So got it done at a renown SBK workshop. Took less than half an hour to fit it. Its simple enough for the bajaj guys to put it and comes with an instruction manual as well. But knowing Bajaj, you never know.

No need to be so paranoid about the warranty. Trust me, you'll never require anything in that period from Bajaj. Even if you do, its all paid. Don't expect anything to be done free of cost in that period.

Go get yourself a slip-on and enjoy the bike even more .

Thanks. Nice to see you post after a long time Sir. Will do just that. Just one query, is it easy to remove the baffles from a slip-on?

P.S. Balenopower - sorry for hijacking your thread.

Removing the baffle is child's play.

Am considering this bike and had some doubts. Hope you can help clear some of them.
Did the probiking centre have the sliders?
Do the PUIG come in black? If you lay the bike down onto the slider, what else touches the ground? If you could try it on grass with a cloth on the ground, you can get a good idea of what you will be getting into should you have to lay the bike down.
How does she feel in the city and on the highway?
Is the GC enough that you dont have to think about it?
How is the lighting from the stock headlamps?
How much do a set of spare tyres cost?
The pillion seat being high is something i am already familiar with on the Karizma. It looks even higher on this. How much does a pillion upset the balance?

Thanks in advance
