Your first service should of already been done. Normally the dealer will do a routine service and inspection between 500 & 1000 miles. You add Honda coolant only to the cooling system when ever it needs it @ the coolant reservoir.
It's called the FSS, and it tells you how long before your next scheduled serice SHOULD be. It means that you have 600 miles until you need an A service done to your car. Once it is done by a licensed Chrysler dealer, it will be set to 7,000 miles to the dealer, and will come on occasionally to remind you.
Go to the chrysler page and look up a manual for your 05 crossfire, page 106. All the information is located there and on the next few pages. Hope that helps.
During break in, everything breaks in. Valves need to be adjusted,bolts loosen(check your engine mounting bolts),steering neck bearings need to be adjusted,carbs need tuning,etc. 600 mile check ups often include changing the plugs along with the oil. You need to go over the whole bike with a fine tooth comb, it's probably a motor mount bolt.
The bike should be serviced every year even if mileage has not been reached. If your bike is 6 years old and has only had it's 600 and 4,000 mile service it does really need to be done. Coolant and brake fluid require changing every 2 years, if you have been missing this I recommend you get it done. By 8,000 miles you could be looking at worn tyres and brake pads depending on how hard you ride. service would be 2.5 to 3.5 hours and cost about £50 an hour plus vat plus parts.
1. Is that tank steel - will it hold a magnetic bag?
Steel - I use a bag that mounts to the fuel filler and does not touch the tank.
2. What mileage do you get when touring, not thrashing?
City, low light comes on at 125 miles (stop start 20 mile commute) takes 4.0-4.2 gals each fill.
Highway, light comes on 150-170 miles, same fill.
3. What is the real fuel tank capacity - full to fumes?
Never experimented with it. Book says just over 5, I have never put more than 4.7 in it.
4. What are the recommended service intervals?
600 mile and then every 6000
5. How expensive has dealer service actually been?
600 about $320, 6000 about $600 depending on work
6. Fun factor?
I was down 1/2 quart.
Is it usual to burn that much oil in 700 miles or did the mechanic forget to change the oil at the 600 miles service?
Husband bought a duplicate bike and he wasn't down at all.
I can see being down 1/2 quart with a total mileage of 1100 miles (maybe) but not in the 700 miles since the oil change.
Like a dummy I didn't check the fluids after the initial service.
It looks clean, but I'm planning a 1200 mile trip next week and am not quite sure if this is normal...if you experienced guys think its okay, I guess I'll have to make room in my bags to carry oil!
Any opinions appreciated...,1. Sounds like the mechanic didnt do his job right.
2. Just have your hubby do it. cheaper and you know its done right.......,,,
