Nice bike. The cops here in Thailand are starting to use them instead of the 250's for highway duty.

Good luck with it and dont forget to post trip reports.

Sharp bike! Pretty solid motor, used in some form in 3 or 4 variations in the Kawi line.

Now work on knocking back those chicken strips!

Hmm.. my manual says 6.000km/1 year for the 2007 ER6F, and I've been
doing it like it says since day 1. ~28.000km on the clock, no issues.

I must say I've never seen a bike with interval longer then 10.000km,
and I've worked in a bike shop. I've seen everything from 2.000km
to 10.000km, while most were at 6.000km.

I was amazed to see 10.000km intervals on the Yamaha FZ6 Fazer
which revs up to like 14.000rpms. That says a lot about material
quality and factory confidence.

Well, I know how to read, and sure as shit, that is a 7500 mile (12000 km) oil change window. Interesting.

Five or six, yes. The good news is, you don't have to worry too much if you get busy and overshoot by a couple thousand.




How do you like it so far - enough power? I think the engine is tuned the same as the Ninja 650R that I had, and I found it more than adequate.

Agreed, looks great in white. A great bike too, in the UK I see them used for everything, from commuting to racing!

And, of course, there are the super special customised off-road specials :P

yo mate, very satisfied with her, at least for a new big biker like me(used to 130cc bike for three years), is really good low end torque, easy to commute in heavy traffic and fast respond unlike some inline 4, of cause i cannot expect for a speed too high at highway where the engine is not design to do so, what can i say is, so far so good!!
