Service Intervals
« on: May 02, 2012, 11:10:58 AM »
I know the bikes are recently released and few, if any, has some good mileage yet. But I think the service intervals have already been advised by Honda. I will be happy if any of you can enlighten me on the matter.Different  bikes with shaft drives have varying service intervals, afaik GS go into service every 10k KM (6K miles), whereas old PanEuropeans do so every 24K km (15K miles) here in Turkey (correct me if I'am wrong, I have not owned any of the bikes, so these are just table values from services that I have seen).

TL;DR: How often do the new CTs need to be serviced? Thanx in advance.
average on my VFR1200X

Please see below the Service Schedule from the owners manual - Personally I WILL do oils and filters every 6000km ... Jacob  :018:

I'm pretty certain that the service schedule mentions brake fluid changes every 2 years..
