RE: Service Intervals

Hello

The maintenance chart in my owner's manual says 5 months, 20 months 40 months. 

I would assume that means EVERY 5 months and then when you get to the 20th month just give it more work than you have been doing in the 5th, 10th and 15th month.  Then again when you get up the 40th month it needs even more work.  Rather than just service it on the 5th month, 20th month and 40th month... Have I got that right?

Many Thanks
Newbie traylerm8

What bike what year what mileage?

It sounds like a list of checks every 5 months,with a bit more checks every 20 months (don`t forget the 5 months as well again) and a bit more every 40 months (don`t forget the 5 month + the 20 months as well again).:blink:

It sounds to me....

like that's intervals for changing various consumables,like plugs, filters,cables rubber hoses etc...Bikes are usually serviced at mileage intervals.600, 6,000,12,000 etc..

forget this 5 month bollocks

keep your eye on the mileage, the single most important thing you can do is to ensure the engine has good quality oil in, i change my oil far earlier than any manual suggests even if its be stood for months oil degenerates with age, never had any trouble working on this basis and as for everything else like plugs/ tyres etc i check them as a matter of course, most manufacturers now specify  a 4,000 mile interval for oils.
