What type of oil did you use and how much did you use.

You should have used a 10w40 or 20w-50 weight oil with no additives (if it says "energy conserving" or something similar, don't use it) due to the bikes wet clutch.

You should have used 3.6 quarts if changing the oil filer at the same time as the oil, or 3.2 quarts if changing the oil only and leaving the filter in place.

I have a complete How To on changing your oil here:

It sounds like your motor may need to be looked at by a dealer, it sounds like it may be seizing due to lack of oil. The 'check oil' warning sounds like insufficient oil level. Do not start it ride it until you have it checked by a service center!

The shifter on my 2006 Suzuki C50 sticks on 3 or

Make sure that you are allowing the shifter to return to the center position each time you shift gears. If the shifter really is sticking try a lubricating oil that will flow rather than a paste. A paste won't get in tight places like a flowable oil will. You should also check to make sure that the clutch is adjusted properly. If it is not fully dis-engaging it will be hard to shift.
Another thing that comes to mind, if you have recently changed the oil, make sure that you didn't put the wrong oil in it. If the oil is too heavy it will shift hard, especially if it is cold.

Hi,sometimes its hard to get my suzuki vl 125 into first gear, you have to jolt the bike with a rev to engage first.any suggestions? many thanks Charlie .

If the gearbox oil is REALLY dirty it can affect shifting.The only other thing will be a shift fork going bad. Replacing a shift fork is not generally a do-it-yourself project. The dealer will charge $750 or more. Sure do hope you have dirty oil...

I have a 2001 suzuki gsxr 600 shifting problems

One of two things is happening. One is the cost of a double oil change and filter. The other requires your banks loan officer.

Change gearbox oil and install a new oil filter. Dirt and grit in the oil is binding the gears and shift drum. Ride the bike for a couple of hours. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil. This will flush out the dirt and grit. Use 10w40 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If dirty oil is not the problem at least we eliminated the possibility for only the cost of a few quarts of oil.

Now let's talk about that loan officer. The shop is going to charge around $1000 plus to replace a bent shift fork. This is not a repair for the untrained. Sorry.
