how much did you pay? plus they said it may be there 1 day :doh:I paid the money for 1st service just to avoid any hassel later on.. but it hasn't been back since. Might be worth paying the money but stay there and watch them.. so if alot of metal shavings come out of the oil or rear end you can be sure it is documented.
Hey where are u getting it and what type of oil and filter?Don't know why this varies so much from country to country.Here in OZ,Suzuki tell us that we can have the bike serviced(during the warranty period)by ANY QUALIFIED MOTOR CYCLE MECHANIC(Cannot do it ourselves) regardless of whether they are a Suzuki dealer or not.BUT--if the bike *****S itself after leaving said premises,then your warranty is out the window.So it's a catch 22 situation.A friend of mine serviced his bike himself from day one of owning the bike,but he has a friend who is an M/C mechanic with his own business,so he got the service book stamped by his mate.Easy as.I myself did take the M to a dealer(found a good one)for piece of mind in case anything did go wrong.The M is now out of warranty,so now all servicing is done in house.Oil and filter done every 3.000K's for less than $AU50.00.KEZZ.:bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:
:agree: I always take mine to the dealer for service and also for having some mods put on. It may sound expensive to it this way but if something goes wrong you've got some place to come back on.i would take it to the dealer you have more of a leg to stand on if something does go wrong
I think i paid 100$ and it only took them about 1 hr... i made the appt so they pulled it in as soon as i got there and i watched them do the whole thing... also got to bullsh?t with the mechanic for a bit.how much did you pay? plus they said it may be there 1 day :doh:
thats well and good but i was told by the dealer when i wanted a warranty claim for the miss i had in the bike that suzuki dont cover timing issues yes i did change the bike but it was documented that i was worried about the miss a week after i brought the bike with no mods it seems they will do little warranty jobs but if you have a major problem suzuki wont lift a finger to helpIf you think you can stay awake for longer than 15 minutes you can read the warranty. It is not pretty...you can do your own service, but you had better keep the receipts. As much as I don't like to, because of pricing, I purchase my K&N and fluids at the dealership so their name is on the receipts. I paid for the 600, $110. I also have the Extended Warranty...the fine print will kill you. The warranty, factory and extended is voided with many of the mods that are commonly listed by riders on this site. My habits of buying what I drive and ride and don't modify what was engineered and produced goes way back to being raised by a mechanic and having worked in dealership service and seeing hundreds of warranty claims denied do to modifications. I will take my motors to an independent mechanic but I always make sure they are, in this case, certified by Suzuki. In the smaller shops they usually don't mind you standing over their shoulder. I really don't like dealer's shops where I can't watch my motor being worked on. Anyone can tell me they checked the fluid levels, brakes, tightened nuts and bolts etc. I just want to see them do it. Ride often and ride safe.
