1000 km maintenance

Hello all,

I have recently rolled over 1000 km and was looking at the required maintenance for this interval.

1. Throttle play, it suggest 4mm max I believe, mine is more in the range of 8-10mm. Is this the amount of forward and back play your throttle has while sitting without pulling the cable (free play?)

2. Throttle valve synchronization..... what is this? Why does it have a * beside it?

3. exhaust and chassis bolts. Anyone have the torque specs on these? Know of a manual that has them?

Yeeeehaaaaaw!

When I had my Wee several years ago, the throttle had lots of play as delivered and was somewhat snatchy.
I took almost all of the play out to about 1 or 2 mm and all was good after that.
I don't know why lots of bikes are delivered with so much play in the cables.

Could someone let us know how to check and correct for excessive throttle play?

I have the shop manual. The throttle valve synchronization at 1000km is only required on California bikes. The procedure requires the use of the Suzuki Diagnostic System to open a setup function on the ECM. Then the primary throttle stops are adjusted to get an equal vacuum at 1200 RPM. The last step is to trigger a "Relearn" function via the SDS. Probably 1-1/2 hour shop procedure, a lot of which is to strip off trim/tank/air filter etc to get at the intakes.

adjusted my throttle slack today, like hellcat said, it makes a big difference. Not sure why they come off the floor with such a crazy amount of play, have mine down to around 3 mm now feels a lot better.

Yeeeehaaaaaw!
