how often to get service??

  1. hey just wondering how often you guys get your bikes serviced?? is it bout the same as cars.. like every 6 months of 5000k's?

    if it makes a difference i got a 04 gs500f

  2. Oh my bike! In that case around 5-6k km's
  3. owners manual for gs500f recommends every 6,000, doesn't hurt to get it done sooner though i know people that service their bike every 3,000
  4. The manual for the RF says 6000 but I do it at 5000. If you ride hard or work the bike a lot I'd be halving whatever the book says. Think of it as cheap insurance. I look over my bike at least weekly or at the end of any trip. Its amazing what works loose! :grin:
  5. I think the norm is 6000km, and there is usually a different service sue at the end of every 6000. Bit different to cars.
  6. Lol i was thinkin i like to be serviced as often as possible hehe but nah my bike she gets serviced every 3000 ks :p
