Service experience
« on: April 18, 2017, 03:08:28 PM »

Evening chaps, just searching for a bit of advice... looking at personal opinions on spark plugs, umming and arring whether to go with standard plugs or iridiums..
Bit on info on the bike... she's a 61 plate with..... get this..... 983 genuine miles on the clock!! Only mods being an Mtc exhaust and that's it. I'm mechanically minded and maintain all my own bikes. Just want to know what people are thinking for first service. Comments greatly appreciated

Bike looks fantastic!

I get mine serviced at (former)dealership, so probably on standard plugs.  Never had problem with them.....

I used Motul 7100 and it lasted two years.
I changed to Motul 300V and my engine started getting piston knock after two weeks.

Go with iridium plugs, they're like 4 more expensive, and the weight saving alone is worth that.

Conti RoadAttack... eh, there's worse out there. They're alright.

Spray your footpegs black OMFG.

You don't need a tax disc any more.

You have GT250 discs on your GT650. They'll be fine though.

I had Continental Conti Motions on mine which were very good, and newly fitted Dunlop Roadsmarts seem just as good.  Not been out on the wet yet though.....

I like the silver pegs and brackets (looks (a little bit like) alloy!) and they match the grab rail, but then I like the silver engine as well, and I know there are lots who like to black it all out......

Front disks look the same as my 2010 (2009 first generation EFI model) GT650, maybe they are all the same?

Tyres are Bridgestone battlax's and disks are hyo 650 disks.. not sure where your getting gt 250 from? Appreciate the comments.. seen a few positive reviews on the motul 7100. To be honest seen loads of mixed reviews. I'm running iridium plugs and castrol power 1 fully synthetic race oil in my gsxr 750 and can't fault it! Mixed reviews all over the place as to semi or fully synthetic oils

Oil = depends how long you intend to own it!

Plugs = depends how long you intend to own it!

Discs = I thought that the 250 and 650 were identical.

Colour = sexy.

I like it! I'd recommend Iridium's too.

Wait, why don't the 650's have the plastic cap that pushes into the frame covering the swing arm bolt? I cannot believe I've only just noticed this.

Iridiums it is then. Basically it was bought by my family for a big birthday present for another member of the family and I'd hope that it would be kept for a while and considering the mileage condition etc I have no doubts about it being possible atall. I'm going to be doing the services. On my own I do them every 1500 with the castrol and the iridiums but I doubt if this will cover that mileage in a year so yearly services me thinks!

Pretty sure mine did.
