Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 third service costs me a little over Rs 1,000

I paid only Rs 814 for the first service of the motorcycle and Rs 936 for the second service.

BHPian neil.jericho recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

The first service of the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 was completed in July 2022. The second service of the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 was completed in September 2022. The third service was scheduled for the 10th of February / the odometer reading of 9,500 to 10,000 kilometers. I decided to get the service completed a few weeks earlier than required.

This time, instead of Aluva Suzuki, I went to the Suzuki superbike showroom in Vytilla, to get a first-hand experience of things. As compared to Aluva Suzuki, things move a lot slower here. That said, the quality of work, was good. The air filter was dusty, even after it was cleaned. After getting my approval, the mechanic replaced the air filter.

Besides that, I asked for the preload levels on the rear suspension, to be stiffened up. It was on level 5 of 7, with 7 being the stiffest. For regular riding and touring purposes, the suspension was well set up for my weight. However, on the track, it was a little too excitable, for my liking.

It is now set to level 7 of 7. There is a noticeable firmness at the rear, which is marginally at odds with the forgiving front-end suspension. I need to check the sag levels on the bike. The front end just might need 41mm preload adjusters, to be installed, to balance out the rear.

Anyways, the overall bill was Rs 1,142. The service team was unable to generate the final bill, as the motorcycle is still tagged to the warranty claim, in Suzuki's systems.

Overall, the first service cost Rs 814. The second service cost Rs 936 (slight increase in spares cost). The third service cost Rs 1,142 (including the air filter change). Let's just say that I'm loving the wallet-friendly service costs associated with the GSXRRRRR250.

One of these is a real menace on Kochi's roads.
