We have 16° C in Belgium. It's not unusual to ride in november / december but not in summer outfit :)

Done :
Carbon tankpad
Carbon fuelcap
Rizoma mirrors
Black levers
Suzuki OEM screen
Suzuki OEM passenger seat cover
Remus slip on exhaust
Wheel decal back
L&S tail taidy
Oxford Neptune turnsignals back with LED relais
Optimate 4 charching cable in the backseat

The bike has to go for the 6000km service. At the same time :
Wheel decal front
Back light with integrated turn signal
Move Oxford Neptune turnsignals to front
Steel or carbon break lines and other breakpads

tsmetjen as you are in Europe shouldn't your service be @ 12000km as per Page 6-5 of manual?

Just trying to be helpful.

Dekker, that is a good point but when I got my 1000 km service they wrote in the book next service 6000 km ???

What to do? They have to make the money from you in the warranty years as many people service it privately when that runs out.

I have a friend in my village who is a fully qualified motorcycle mechanic. He used to service my GSXR so he will be back on the go when the warranty runs out on the GSXS.

After having a robust 'discussion' with my dealer about service intervals I contacted Suzuki and asked for clarification. Got a phone call and an apology from my dealer and confirmation that the 12000km interval is correct.
I'll probably still do my oil every 6000 tho.

Yes you are probably right, but I like my oil changed every 6000. Perhaps I'm stupid , but certainly hardheaded :)

That's a tasty stealth machine. The rizoma mirrors look trick, do they actually work or is the view all elbows?

My UK manual states 6000K or 3500 miles:nerd:
Are you sure you aren't reading the top line which is every 12 months (not 12k);)

Just asking0:)

I will still get it serviced every 6000 km as I plan to keep this bike for a long old time, it's only money and you can't take it with you. Though the wife pointed out I could leave it to her : - )

We will see : - )

The first generation manual said that but its been revised to 7500k miles12000km in Europe as the conditions were considered less harsh than in other parts of the world.
