Service Intervals?

21 posts in this topic

I got my 250L last month, but it didn't come with an owners manual. Can someone with one please give me the first couple of sevices and mileage? I am just over 800miles now.

Dealer cant tell me, and they say the owners manual isnt avalable seperately yet....

Thanks!

Did you buy the bike new from a dealer & he can't tell you when it should be serviced?

I'm at work right now so I can't check but, Mine did come with an owners manual. 1st service is at 600 miles I know. I thought it said oil changes at 8000 miles but even if that's true I will be changing way before then. I wont be able to get back on tonight and I will try to remember to come back and post some specifics for you.

Hello,

Captain obvious here...did you look under the seat where the manual stowage is?

Is that where yours was ? Mine was handed to me with my extra key and all my paper work. I wondered if it was suppose to be under there. :huh:

Mine was handed to me as well...just noting there is a spot there for it.

Wishful thinking that maybe the dealer had it there and didn't know it....shot in the dark..

thanks for the replys you guys! Did the oil change this weekend, and looked for the manual in every typical spot..but no luck.

FYI- I went to the other dealer in town and got my oil and filter, they gave me a spec of .73 Quarts for oil change with filter, but my bike took 1.6 Quarts, more similar to the spec for the CBR250R...for what ever thats worth

Best of luck...find some different dealers.............................

Stock filter is paper not oiled foam.  This is an old thread that's back from the dead.  I'd still check to see if it needs to be replaced though.  :)

Well ..... the back fire screen needs removed from the filter as well as the snorkel tube from your air box when you install that Bad Ass stage one kit you have so .... you may as well just buy a new one .... also I believe it is a very good idea to replace the flange to head exhaust gasket as this is a crush type but some people do not.

I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts and impressions on the stage one kit !!!

Hmmmm I didn't get a manual either.

Wonder why they don't include an owners manual?

 

Click the link in Master Jedi's (aka Mental Guru) signature  ...  :lol: ...   for a PDF version of the Honda factory service manual you can download to your PC and save the link to your favorites ....  :thumbsup:

They should be smart enough to know but, always best to check and give them a heads up of what you want.

 

The airbox mod should be part of the stage 1 setup ...  :prof:

Hey I downloaded the service manual off MentalGuru's sig.

 

Thanks a bunch.  Now I get to see what the dealership is seeing!

My dealer says the owner manual is packed in a separate box in the bike crate. He said they threw away several mixed in with the cardboard after unpacking before they realized it. He had know idea why Honda packed them that way.
