service interval

Having read the owners booklet, the maintenance schedule say`s that the year service is at 8000 miles, but my local dealer say`s that it is only 4000 miles. Do any of you know which is correct..! :027:

8000miles oil and filter change. The 4000mile is just a safety check ie chain adjustment, Tyres etc. Thing you should check regularly yourself. Not required for warranty.

The VFR800 service interval is 4000 miles.  The handbook is clear that the runner has 8000 mile service intervals.

If the dealer is telling you you need a 4000 mile service look for another dealer as they seem to be trying to con you into extra services that are not needed to maintain warranty.

However, always good to have a regular check around the bike, you can do this yourself, for things like brake pads which can go from loads left to need to change now in 4000 miles.  Chain and tyre check should be done regularly, not waiting for service.

Having said all that there is some opinion that the V-tec engine really does like 4000 mile oil changes, again a really simples job that you can do yourself very easily.

Thanks guys, like to keep things as cheap as possible for myself and do pretty much all my own maintainance unless the bike is still under guarantee. Will be asking the dealer what they actually do at 4000 miles.

I think this point was examined previously on this forum and the general consensus was that you should certainly change oil/filter every 4,000.
