First service - How many km can you go over the 1000?
« on: April 19, 2015, 01:27:27 AM »
Hey guys
So I'm having my first service done tomorrow but the place is about 20k away from me. Was wondering how many over the 1000k point would be too much?

Cheers

They change the oil and oil filter and check that everything is tight. Not sure if it is a different oil they use for run in or not but I wouldnt go more than a couple of hundred over.

I think I was 100 to 200 over by the time I got there the mechanic didn't have any problem with it I think 20 will be fine

The sooner you get the running oil drained and filter changed the better  :007:

Got the service. It's great that the mineral oil is finally out. That stuff smells terrible when you're finished riding.

Asked the service guy for curiousity and about 150 over is alright. Anything over 200 is apparently quite bad but 300 is the absolute maximum.

Do Suzuki use 'running in' oil? I didn't think main stream manufacturers bothered with that these days!? Plus, I would have expected something in the handbook about topping up initially with something other than the regular 10W40 so as not to mix mineral (or whatever they used) and semi synthetic oil?   :027:

i got my bike back from my first service, and the maintenance light is still on? Did the dealer forget to shut it off? how do you turn it off?
