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

I have a kymco bug espresso 2005 model 150cc. about to do oil change and just read the bit in manual about gear oil. Does this scooter need that too?

Hi, Sonia excellent question it all depends on how long you have owned the scooter and it's mileage, engine oil needs to be changed every 2000 km or 1250 mi. gear oil needs to be changed every 4000 km or 2500 mi.I recommend 10w40 in a synthetic "motorcycle" (not automobile) engine oil if you can find it, Amsoil and Mobil1 are the best and for the rear differential, SAE 80w90 gear lube is recommended, for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Kymco, despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

I have new pulsar 150 which run 2500 km's . I

Oil change intervals for motorcycles depend a great deal on your riding conditions and riding style. For lower-revving street bikes, I often change my oil about every 2000 miles (~3200 km). However, someone with a sport bike who regularly revs their engine closer to the redline, I would suggest a more frequent change interval. Off-road / dirt bikes should have their oil changed sooner because of the dusty conditions. The oil is still full of lubricants, but it is contaminated with dust and dirt that clogs the filter and eventually goes right into the engine, increasing wear. I can't offer much guidance for dirt bike oil change intervals.

Fork oil change

000 kays should i be doing a fork oil change soon? the manual i have doesnt mention it at all. is there a noticeable difference is suspension performance after a fork oil change? i have noticed lately that the front end is a bit sloppy so have resorted to add a bit more rebound dampening30000k is a great time to do the fork oil change. the manuals sometime call for it sooner but from my expeience 10 years as a ducati mechanic 30,000 k would be when I would say to do the oil change. FYI adding damping will heat the oil more and cause it to fail sooner, with the mileage it is probably time anyway.,,,

Buying tips

i'm about to purchase a 03 749 w abt 4000miles. mostly stock except for some CF add-ons. used to ride a monster400(yes they do have 400cc monsters!) back in my country and the maintenence wasn't costly. was just wondering if you guys could offer me some advise mostly abt cost of maintenence. i would love to be mentally prepared for the costs involved..(tried to find these info in the forums but couldnt really get a definite answer) 1)i understand the 6K service would be up soon. any rough estimates on the cost of it? 2) is it about the same for the 12k service? 2) is the 6K and 12 K service(and so on every 6K) the only major ones the 749 need? 3)in between these how often should i send her for a regular servicing? (change of engine oil, spark plugs, etc)? any help would be truly appreciated and cant wait to get back on a ducati!,First piece of advice, use the search function on this forum. You will be flamed otherwise. This question has been asked a million times. The cost of servicing a Ducati will depend on the state of the bike. Generally, however, all interval services between 6000 and 12,000 miles will cost the same as any Japanese four. The major services, and this includes the 6000 and 12000 services will generally cost you between $600-$1200. This is a ball park figure, as this depends: (a) on the honesty of the mechanic; and (b) things like the valve clearance and age of the belts and the general condition of the bike. As you have a 2003 749 with 4000 miles, expect the next service to be at the higher end of the scale because the bike will have to have the belts, fluids, valves and everthing checked or changed. This is because Ducati specify their maintenance schedule in terms of X,000 miles or 2 years, whatever comes sooner. This schedule is repeated throughout the bikes life and as time goes will come to include such things as the forks, etc. I suggest that you do not skimp on any of this. However, Ducati's and especially the 749/999 bikes are not ticking reliability time bombs. If you look after your bike it will last you for many years to come, providing a fantastic ownership experience along the way. I hope this is of some help.,,,

Beo 125 service schedule and regular maintenance

I just dropped off my '08 Beo 125 for first scheduled service and left my manual in the seat. Anyone know offhand when the second one is due? Who here changes their oil between services and how often? Any winterizing or storage tips?Your next service would be at 3,108 mi, which is basically just a check of the brake pads, engine oil and ail filter. I plan on doing all much maintenance as I can do myself (I don't want to have fork out $90hr for my dealer to drain the oil and replace the filters),,,
