don't know if this has already been asked , but I am getting different specs on the servicing I know the bike has its first service at 600 mile , what is the servicing intervals after that , spoke to an sx h2 se owner he has had two air filters in 2500 miles , is this normal , don't know if it is the supercharger filter or the actual air filter , seems to be sucking in a lot of bugs , anyone have any thoughts please .

There is only one air filter. This bike tends to suck more debrie in then normal bikes. So if you live in a place with alot of bugs and dirt, good idea to change/clean the filter more frequently. As for regular maintenance, i did my first service at 1000kms then every 6000kms or every spring, which ever comes first.

The service manual is pinned on the forums. It will have the service intervals, same as your owners manual your bike came with.

Why can't you answer him??
The intervals in km is: 1000 km (1st service) and then every 12000 km. In miles: 600 (1st service) and then every 7500 miles.

If you drive in areas with a lot of bugs, dust and dirt it can be a good idea to change your air filter between the service intervals.
Low price and little effort.

Because this is basic maintenance that is in his owners manual that came with the bike. Or he can download the service manual that is pinned at the top of this section of the forums.

thanks for your help , much appreciated , I have not got the h2 yet, so don't have the manual, my problem at present is every time I go to pay my deposit something crops up, I have been talking to an h2 owner here in the uk who looks after his own h2 se. he has told me he is on his second air filter in 2500 miles he has a removeable filter he can clean and put back , I didn't want to start to have to start changing air filters every 2500 miles on a bike I am not familiar with , is it a hard job to do~?? , I hate taking plastics off for the first time, always scared in case I break something. my other gripe is the back brake , I was at the dealers yesterday I have a choice of a good deal on the se but that has to be delivered from a London dealer, my local dealer can do me a good deal on the h2 sx. dealer has told ne the h2's just have not took off the way they thought and are hard to move on, that's how I can get a good deal , then was wandering how reliable the super chargers are if the super charger goes they are over £3000 to buy without labour, so still on my sx at present , will have to make my mind up before the end of the month .have been looking on you tube for servicing / maintenance on the sx h2 but nothing there , always found you tube useful when working on my other bikes , sorry if you think I am being a bit fussy but to me it is a lot of money to part with as well as my 2017 sx if ni am not 100 % sure .

By the book you need to remove the left fairing and left tank trim fairing, air intake tube and filter shroud. Its not hard to remove those at all. I have my bike stripped down right now because im doing all my mods at once. Guys have said you can remove the air filter without removing the fairings but don't ask me how they did it as I haven't personally done it that way. Sometimes its easier to do more work then less work. For reference, this is where the filter is. And again, depends on where you are riding if it will require servicing more often. Mine had very little dirt/bugs and that was 3500kms, first time its been serviced.

When enquiring about the bike, the dealer said the first service after the 600 miles was 7600 miles. Great I thought, no service for 2 years (annual mileage around 3500 miles).

Then I read the service book which stated “7600 miles or one year which ever comes first” :(

So first service after the 600 mile at 3300 miles for me st end March.

Mislead by the dealer :(

You are mislead by the service book. There is no need for a service when the bike is not used!
If you ride 500 miles per year, the service bok tells you to service the bike once a year? :no:

The reason for this is that Kawasaki wants to sell service parts and keep their dealers occupied with work.

Have your service at 7600 miles, the bike will do just fine.
