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

I'm in Australia and a change every 6000km is recommended. I recall seeing 6000 miles for US models. I am happy with 6000km but on long trips would like to be comfortable going over this

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

First off, no year stated! wow.... nor mileage.
no car stated. oops its a MC.
no engine stated, 109 cc?
well how often varies by all that.
it also varies by miles and how you drive.
high mileage more often
driving fast.?
and if say the EFI is all messed up, and not serviced.
then it can run rich and this can age that oil fast.
(due to huge nasty bypass gases landing there)
so why not just do as you operators guide states.

omg its not even a car. its a motor cycle,
moved you i did.

Is the oil for the Boulevard semi Synthetic or full Synthetic

Either oil will work, check your owners manual, it may say what came with it. If in doubt use full synthetic. You can't go wrong in doing that.

Suzuki M109 Left side air breather oil problem Oil is being sucked up from the crankcase breather tube and leaking out of air box. I have read many of the same problems with the M109. I have 11000 kms...

I had this problem on my 2011, I called a dealer and asked about it. I simply overfilled the oil. Supposed to check the oil level when it's hot not cold. Idle it for 15 min then check the oil level like the manual says.

I just baught an 06 m50 with 8500 miles on it. I am used to bikes with chains, chokes, carbs etc and dont really know what to do with this one. How would you recommend I take care of it.

Great Bike. Suzuki recommends Oil/air change every 6000Klms.(+-3700 miles)
Suggest you blow out air cleaner every 1000 miles.
No adjustment required on drive (Diff), I change the diff oil every 10,000 klm (6000 miles)
As for the rest, it requires no tuning etc, but will required tapped adjustment At +- 12000klm. I would check yours now (8500 miles). There are manuals available on the net.
Obviously check brakes /tires/ oil levels etc
For the rest, keep it clean and enjoy
