Question about 1973 Triumph TRX 75 Hurricane

1 Answer

Oil change frequency

So, the service manual says my next oil change isn't until 6000 mi or one year....Should I change sooner than this? I got the scheduled 500mi change...Also, if I do change it ahead of the 6000 mi, will I void the warrenty? How often do you change your oil?

I change once a year, which is more or less 3000 miles for me. I use a Purolator Pure One 14612 filter and Amsoil Motorcycle 20W50. Other people do differently, just search for some oil threads. I can't imagine that changing your oil more frequently than recommended would violate the warranty.

M109R oil change frequency (how many miles) as prescribed by Suzuki for USA models.

by conversion 6000 miles equals 9656 klms
, 6000 klms equals 3728 miles
in reality you are changing the oil midway between recommended services for the same bike over seas. It is a good idea as it keeps the additives in the oil fresh and I would think that it would b not be particularly harmful if you went 1000 klm over what you change the oil at
Bearing in mind that the oil life relies on engine load , speed , weather conditions ,viscosity and quality of oil in use
Might be best if you have a chat with an accredited bike shop that services Suzuki bikes and take note of what they recommend
it comes down to this ---oil is a cheap mechanic in preventative maintenance

How Miles Should the oil be Changed? I been Hearing 3000 to 7 500 miles. Thanks for your Help

various manufacturers give various recommendations, anything upto 12 - 15,000 miles but a change every 5-6,000 miles will greatly contribute to engine longevity and smooth running. Less than this interval is unnecessary, there should not be sufficient deterioration of oil to warrant changing it. This is in reference to an average engine in everyday conditions.
I have a 2.2 Honda with 185000 miles on the odometer and it has had regular oil and filter changes around 6000 miles and it pulls very well still.
High performance engines , such as found in super cars or hyper cars might need oil changes far sooner becayse of the pounding it takes but unless you drive a Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari etc, you should be fine with the 6000 mile intervalc

We got a saturn vue 2003 2 years ago it had 60x mi on it now it's got 84x we change oil every 3000 mi and last year we took it to the dealership for service, but i want to know what other services should i...

Keep the serpintine belt, oil/oil filter, air filter, gas filter and transmission fluid/filter changed regularly. At 84k, check the brakes (front and back). I would look at changing the spark plugs as well. If it is running good, you want to keep it that way...good luck

How often to change the oil

it depends on what type you are using if you are using conventional oil (regular oil) i would change it every 3000 miles if you are using synthetic then you can go over 6000 miles.of course the sooner the better for your engine.

What service is reccommended for 2004 jetta with 28,000 miles. synthetic oil changed at 25,400. miles

Nothing. Assuming you are doing a 5000 mi interval for oil changes, drive happy until 30,000. At that point do the oil, drain water seperator (diesel only) ck washer fluid, ck brakes (mine lasted until 140, 000 mi), depending on your schedule- rotate and balance tires, and check battery. VW also suggests to pop off the timing belt cover and ck for cracks, fluid leaks ect.

Your big service comes at 40,000 mi. Oh, and if you want to take it to a professional shop, save the money and aggravation and go to a local v-dub, or foreign car specialist. Avoid the STEALership at all costs.... this is from a former dealer tech...

Oil change light coming on

The Patroit uses a combination of engine run time, mileage, and temp to determine when the oils needs to be changed. If you do a lot of idling you could require a change sooner than the 6000 mile interval. If you do get your oil cahnged or do it by yourself, here is the way to reset the oil warning from the owners manual:
