Alhamdolillah by the grace of Almighty Allah, got my GD delivered yesterday. Had to wait for 2 weeks for the color but in the end it paid off (H). Truly speaking, its a gem. This thing is really class apart. When i rode it out of the showroom, i thought i am on flying carpet. Really smooth, comfortable n powerful.
10,000 KMs Done MashaAllah
Engine oil: I am using Zic 10w40 synthetic, its best. Second option is AHL 15w40
Fuel consumption: After coming to "RESERVE" position, poured 1 litre fuel. After riding the bike till 56kms on "ON" bike started jerking.. Came back to "RESERVE" position. Speed: 40 - 50
First reading: Done 56kmpl(H) , i am really amazed that it has done that much in break-in period..
Second reading: Done 57 kmpl (H), really happy with my GD
Truly a marvel, paint finish is outclass, each n every part looking superb neat n clean.
Really smooth, comfortable, silent yet powerful. I will call it a silent beast
Important information !!! Yesterday, after coming back from office, i opened the oil gauge cap. I was shocked to see that the oil was below the half mark.:o I waited for some time for the engine to cool down, but still the oil was near half mark.
At the time of delivery, showroom guy showed me the oil was on full mark so how come it ran away in just 100kms. I swiftly went to my old mechanic and asked him to check the oil. He said " bhai abhi itni jaldi q le ae 400-500km to chalao". I said k check to kro oil. He opened the cap and he was surprised too. He asked " which engine oil you used". I said Suzuki Genuine oil. He said to change the oil immediately. I purchased CASTROL GTX costing 420Rs. for a litre pack. When oil came out from the enigine, it was looking more like water. :mad:
I would advice all the new SUZUKI bike owners to change the oil after first 100kms.
Castrol GTX is superb, engine and transmission has become more smooth with reduced engine noise as well. And i did 56kmpl after changing the oil. Costly oil but worth it.
First tuning done at 1050kms
Enjoy the pix, do say Masha-Allah.
