i do the chain every 500 k's, my mechanic mate says every 2 tanks of petrol is a good rule to go by, unless it takes yopu a year to go through 2 tanks in which case sell you're damn bike.Originally posted by S4one
This is my plan, 600mi first service (oil change n stuff), 1500 oil change non syn, 3000 oil change non syn, then 5000mi oil change but switch to full syn. Every 500mi I clean and wax/lube my chain.
i wouldnt recommend going by what the manual says.Originally posted by GreenEnvy
3000mile/5000kilometer is standard for changing oil/filter.
Look in your owners manual for the reccomended maintenance schedule.
