Preventive Maintenance on Streetbike SV1000S

Oil & Filter Service






Hi all you outdoor enthusiasts!

I have decided to tape one of my favorite chores (maintaining hobbies stuff! :)) hoping that any of you could use some valuable tips. The same week after I posted this on YouTube, I received a ‘Thank You’ email for this video as he needed basic information in his new bike!  Make sure you watch the Part 2 of this video.

Please leave comments after watching these videos. 

Every bike is different and unique, and it is a personal experience. Therefore, must be treated individually !


NOTE: Always revert back to your bike’s Owner’s Manual at all times !



Here are some important notes: 

  • This is a wet sump engine, therefore the Oil is contained in the motor and there’s no external oil tank on this bad boy!
  • Oil Quality is a major contributor to engine performance and life !
  • simple basic note: it’s a good idea to replace oil with FRESH oil prior to your next riding !
  • For top performance, I highly recommend manufacturer’s product. And always revert back to your Owner’s Manual !
  • Suzuki 10-W-40 motor oil
  • MA Rating / JASO
  • Choosing what is best for your bike is a personal choice. However, I recommend manufacturer’s factory products. Revert to your Owner’s Manual.
  • Use: SF / SG or SH / SJ

in API Classification with MA Rating in J.A.S.O.

  • For those of you who are interested to know what these are:
