    I own a gixxer naked 2015 model and have some questions if you guys could help .

    1. Can we use any other break shoes in the rear breaks rather than the stock one ?

    2. Is there any effective way to make the gear butter smooth ?

    I have tried using Motul oil to reduce the hardness but still my legs hurt pretty much after a longer run and sometimes on a shorter run as well . Hope you guys can help .

    4 years. That's enough period for this tyres.in this time the rubber become harder that's why there's some cracks .you should change both tyres. I suggest change the rear tyre at least for your safety.

    Is there a way to stiffen up the front suspension of Gixxer? I know it's not possible with the stock setup so can anyone suggest any mod which can be used to make the front suspension a little more stiff as it is a bit to soft, even for light offroad riding.

    Icon4 Suzuki Gixxer SF : Ownership thread

    Hi Fellow XBhpians. Yesterday bought Gixxer SF Fi SP Abs (Orange on Black) used (7900 kms approx) Dec 2017 model.
    Was in dilemma between 200 RS, FZ 25, Gixxer SF and Apache 160. Finally chose this one as it was total fun and the looks.

    I'm new to Fi and have this question:
    When the bike is standstill and engine is not running, the low fuel indicator is on (even after running the bike for 30 kms).
    Also, if the bike is on low fuel, the fuel indicator light should blink even when the bike is running right?

    As you can see from the image, the fuel level is above half tank (as I filled it yesterday) and still the light is on.

    Please help!!!Name:  WhatsApp Image 2019-07-08 at 10.24.34 AM.jpg

    If you are referring to the yellow light, then thats the Check Engine Light. Take your bike to a service center and let them check it.

    You use thicker grade such as 20w, that will make the suspension stiffer and less dive prone. I am not sure what stock fork oil grade the Gixxer uses. But 20w works like a charm.

    Indeed. That's not a low fuel light. The Gixxer doesn't have a dedicated light to show low fuel, all you have to trust is the fuel gauge. The light that you see there is the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT or ENGINE MALFUNCTION LIGHT. It can mean many things, the best is to take it to your nearest SVC. I'd also strongly recommend you to read your owners manual for basic lights and what they mean. It helps you know more about your bike.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Did you get a chance to check with service center? From what i understand it will lit up until you switch on the engine , if check engine light is on after you start the engine then its an issue. Please let us know if its otherwise

    DIY Post

    hello guys so as you people i mean the SF owners are already aware how long the Rear View mirrors are and how discomfort it is to ride it in city traffic with the two mirrors opened wide. As per me i used to close the mirrors sometimes during filtering when the traffic used to be high which eased the maneuverability. But daily closing-opening made the mirrors loose and it used to go wide automatically while riding and i was not able to see properly what was at my back. So, I used to periodically tightened the bolt and it used to work for few thousand kms but the mirrors became loose again.

    Today when i tightened it again the mirrors got loose while i opened it instantly. So, upon further opening the mirrors there are total 4 washers and one of the washers got deep grooves(Pic 2) on it which was causing the mirrors to come loose. So, I got to my nearby automobile spare shop and got myself two new washers costed me Rs 2 only and the cleaned the rust off the remaining washers and mirror clamp with scrotch bite and wd40 and fixed the mirrors again to my bike and its now fixed.

    So whenever the mirrors come loose just tighten it and replace those washers whenever necessary.

    Here are the things you need to fix your SF Rear View Mirrors.

    * 5mm Allen key

    * 13mm socket

    * 2 new same size washers

    * scrotch bite

    * WD 40 (optional)

    Any further questions do ask
