    Default A useful tip for Suzuki Sprinter/Raidor

    Dear members;

    I have Suzuki sprinter 110 which i bought in 2009. Never time it happened that i dont take care of his on time oil change i.e. i changed the oil just after 1000km and oil filter after 3000-4000km as described in manual. I used Shell oil. but despite of all, the ring piston of engine worn out within 50000kms. I talked to my mechanic that why it happened while a great care. He told that manual says that when you change the filter then pour 1-litter oil otherwise pour 700ml. But when we pour 700ml oil (no filter change) the dirty oil in filter related area (we assume 300ml oil) mixes with 700ml fresh oil and make it dirty. So he recommended that whenever you change the oil, change complete and pour 1 litter and also change the filter with local one. never pour wit only 700ml.
    He recommended when my engine is end . I want that other member should follow this instruction and save their engine.

    1000ml is a extra quantity. The guage is the best tool. 800ml (with oil filter change/emptied) otherwise 700ml.

    I had a Sprinter 2006 model. I changed the oil at 1500 kms and changed the Filter on every third oil change and always used to put 700 ml oil in it even after filter replacement. Did 95000 kms on it and sold it to a friend. In that interval only the clutch plates got worn out and were replaced.

    Always check the gauge no matter how much oil you put in it. Just trust the gauge.

    1000ml when oil filter is also changed.
    (Oil filter is changed approx 4000km)
    This is told me by a Suzuki Mechanic.

    I just agree with you bro.

    We have the guage which is the best to tell us the quantity required and it requires 700ml. If we are putting extra 300ml and it exceeds the level indicator on guage then what is the purpose of providing guage. That's the simplest question I have in my mind.

    Even if we are replacing the filter then in this case 300ml is not required. 300ml is not a quantity which can be fit in the oil filter and its compartment.

    We might need to trust the company who made this engine and not the mechanic.

    I have also heard that over pouring the oil will cause early ring burn out / wear out, seal leakage because of the pressure in engine. If you pour extra (eating extra space) then where would the pressure in engine go.

    @abdulrehmanrauf That is correct. if you overfill the oil, it might get into the cylinder or increase the oil pressure in the sump and your engine will get worn out faster than usual. Just pour 700 ml of oil and check the gauge. It should be at the recommended level.

    Very strange. Bro can you upload a scanned copy of manual. I dont have as I got a second hand. Thanks.

    But one thing is for sure, I always pour either 700 or 800 and not more than this in any case and then checked the level on guage.

    Guys guys guys..Its completely normal to pour more oil when replacing filter..

    In cars we change oil filter with oil change so we are quoted an amount like 3L or 4L with filter change.

    When you are changing oil keeping the filter intact there is sill oil left in the filter.That is why you have to pour in 700ml instead of 1L to compensate for the oil already inside filter..

    With filter removal you need to pour in complete 1L amount

    agar suzuki manul say pour in 1L oil then pour in 1L oil period..

    Oil filter kar rubber seal pay halka say oil laga kay install karain(dont pour oil in new filter).Phir oil cap main dalain
    @abdulrehman lala sahi keh rahay hain aap.Masla yeh hai oil/filter change kar kay agar aap 800ml qualtity daltay hai forna nai pata chalta..2-3 min engine start kar kay 8-9 min kay waqfay baad oil level chk karain..It should be lower than expected..
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    Default those who want to get rid of the hard brick seat of sprinter

    guys... if you wan tto get rid of hard brick seat of sprinter.... simply get Raider Seat and it is bolt on... no alteration is required...

    buy it and get it either from Suzuki showroom or from Bilal Gunj if you are living in Lahore...

    Raider seat is much much better than old sprinter seat

    Here is mine.
    I have Suzuki Sprinter 2007 (standard, non eco). I Always used to change oil (0.7 liter) on every 1000 KM and oil filter on every 3rd oil change which is every 3000 KM (1 liter) as suggested by Suzuki Company. Everything is smooth, and except regular oil change and tuning etc I JUST CHANGED CHAIN GRARI SET ONCE and JUST SILAAI BUSH ONCE and my bike has done 60,000 KM to date.
    Most of the times I use suzuki engine oil which I get from suzuki workshop or I use caltex oil. I used Total and Shell oil just 3,4 times.
    I am agreed with @abdulrehmanrauf

    So sprinter got a strong and durable engine which don't worn not easily that's why its the most hot choice for ching chi. From where you are used to purchase oil? Market me 2 number oil bhi tu bohat hai. That's why I have started to purchase only from Suzuki from last two years. When I go their workshop for regular tuning and oil filter change, I purchase two bottles of 0.7 and change 2 oils at home myself and then 3rd one again from their workshop with 1 liter oil.

    I would like to add some thing sprinter manual say that you should fill 1l and gauge have limit of 0.7ml the thing everybody forget is temperature when oil become hot it loss it viscosity a lil and if we see suzuki highly recommend to warm up the bike before use to that oil become a lil thin and a thing that I found in my junoon manual was that the user should warm up his bike on full throttle with chock before oil changed that is due to that fact that the oil will become thin and every drop of old dirty oil will be come out from engine
