What is the service schedule for 2009 suzuki gsxr 600? I just want to know how much and what type of work i can expect to be done for the first service.
man i dont care how many miles i put on a bike..everyday i start the bike when its warming up i do my 20 second walk around...i check all my lockwire. Because i raced before i"ve already made that part easier i guess so its easy for me to see all axle pinch bolts, brake bolts, oil cap and drive chain adjusters are tight and wont fall off like one of them did when i first got my old cbr..i also lost a seat bolt..it vibrated off..but when i raced i"ve drilled holes in the bolts so i could lockwire that down...and once a week i lubed the chain and checked to see that the master link is lockwired on because i lost one of those a while back also. i also lockwired the oil drain and filter and radiator cap. i almost always check my bar end weights, because i lost one of those towing the bike back from the track...im just glad it didnt crack any car windows when it feel off .I even lockwire my hand grips and all coolant hoses and when i mean all.. yes every single one..i didnt want to do that but hey its done and they have never vibrated off. The thing i check the most though is the chain..not too tight and not too loose. dont want that thing to snap on me and lock the wheel up at 70mph. i check the front brakes hard before i leave the driveway..first 600 miles you should check everything i just mentioned including steering head for secutity and tightness and replace oil and filter, check chain tension, First 4000k inspect plugs and inspect brake pads, replace fuel filter, check all brake fluids, check valve clearances if you think it needs it, check tires for uneven wear, clean air filter, lube swing arm, kickstands and rear brake pedal and gear shifter, replace chain if needed. after 1 year or 8k check coolant system for leaks,check fork seals, replace spark plugs and air filter. every two years change the coolant. i left one item out that i think should be up to the rider because you"ll be the one who truely knowns if he or she is really getting on the bike and running her hard...if your stretching chains every couple of months then you should be changing your oil more often because of the stress on the engine. Owning a bike and trying to stay safe will take some dedication.
