Hi, I've moved all
the motorcycle and Suzuki Hayabusa content from this website back home!

The Suzuki Across GSX250F - Maintenance and Service Owners Manuals
Suzuki Across References
Like all bikes you will eventually need to service the Across. I am not aware of what servicing dealers charge these days. The main factor will be the condition your bike is presently in or at purchase.
Maintenance items include clean cloths and Mr Sheen, Chain lube some tools, lubricants etc.. Say $50 a year. The highest cost item aside from the actual service are tyres (<$200 each), thankfully for these types of bikes have pretty good life spans. And as usual the rear tyre will be the first to need replacing. Call around to get the best price. I also recommend finding a reliable servicing agent. This may take longer than finding the actual bike!
Price of the service is not an indication of quality as you'll probably get an apprentice looking after your bike anyway. In my experience the larger the shop the less service you get unless you're going out with the mechanic or something like that. Unless something mechanical goes wrong the bike should be pretty cheap to maintain.
parts: Rear rim will house
160 rear tyre (I did this). Engine bay will handle a
500cc from the Suzuki GS500 (this was
reported to me years ago - an unverified.). Dark screen
available. Different size sprockets
available. Chain is heavier duty than
required. I had a Ventura luggage rack
attached to the rear.
Lots of things can go wrong on a
motorcycle as it gets older. Happens to everything mechanical. So if
something on your Across does go wrong it's best to start with the basics and progress from
there. Karma works and if you look after your bike it will look after you!
