Serial Number Location

The frame serial number or VJ.N. (Vehicle Identification Number) © is stamped on the right side of the steering'head pipe. The engine serial number© is located on the right side of the crankcase. These numbers are required especially for registering the machine and ordering spare parts.

FUEL, OIL AND ENGINE COOLANT RECOMMENDATION FUEL

1. Use only unleaded gasoline of at least 87 pump octane (R*M) method or 91 octane or higher rated by the research method. 2

2. Suzuki recommends that customers use alcohol free, unleaded gasoline whenever possible,

3. Use of blended gasoline containing MTBE (Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether) is permitted.

4. Use of blended gasoline/alcohol fuel is permitted, provided that the fuel contains not more than 10% ethanol. Gasoline/alcohol fuel may contain up to 5% methanol if appropriate cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors are present in it.

5. If the performance of the vehicle is unsatisfactory while using blended gasoline/alcohol fuel, you should switch to alcohol-free unleaded gasoline.

6. Failure to follow these guideline could possibly void applicable warranty coverage. Check with your fuel supplier to make sure that the fuel you intend to use meets the requirements listed above.

ENGINE OIL

SUZUKI recommends the use of SUZUKI PERFORMANCE 4 MOTOR OIL or an oil which is rated SE or SF under the API (American Petroleum Institute) classification system. The viscosity rating is SAE 10W/40. If an SAE 10W/4Q motor oil is not available, select an alternate according to the right chart.

TEMP.

BRAKE FLUID

Specification and classification: D0T4

A WARMING

Since the brake system of this motorcycle is filled with a glycol-based brake fluid by the manufacturer, do not use or mix different types of fluid such as silicone-based and petroleum-based fluid for refilling the system, otherwise serious damage will result. Do not use any brake fluid taken from old or used or unsealed containers. Never re-use brake fluid left over from a previous servicing, which has been stored for a long period.

FRONT FORK OIL

Use fork oil # 10

ENGINE COOLANT

Use an anti-freeze/engine coolant compatible with an aluminum radiator, mixed with distilled water only.

WATER FOR MIXING

Use distilled water only. Water other than distilled water can corrode and clog the aluminum radiator.

ANTI-FREEZE/ENGINE COOLANT

The engine coolant perform as a corrosion and rust inhabit as well as anti-freeze. Therefore, the engine coolant should be used at all times even though the atmospheric temperature in your area does not go down to freezing point.

LIQUID AMOUNT OF WATER/ENGINE COOLANT

Solution capacity (total): 2450 ml (2.6/2.2 US/imp qt)

For engine coolant mixture information, refer to cooling system section, page 5-4.

rXCAUTibN]

Mixing of anti-freeze/engine coolant should be limited to 60%, Mixing beyond it would reduce its efficiency. If the anti-freeze/engine coolant mixing ratio is below 50%, rust inhabiting performance is greatly reduced. Be sure to mix it above 50% even though the atmospheric temperature does not go down to the freezing point.

1-5 GENERAL INFORMATION

BREAK-IN PROCEDURES

During manufacture only the best possible materials are used and all machined parts are finish* to a very high standard but it is still necessary to allow the moving parts to "BREAK-IN" before subjecting the engine to maximum stresses. The future performance and reliability of the engine depends on the care and restraint exercised during its early life* The general rules are as follows.

• Keep to these break-in engine speed limits:

Initial 800 km ( 500 miles); Below 6000 r/min Up to 1600 km (1000 miles): Below 9000 r/min Over 1600 km (1000 miles): Below 12000 r/min

• Upon reaching an odometer reading of 1600 km (1000 miles) you can subject the motorcycle to full throttle operation. However, do not exceed 12000 r/min at any time.
