Servicing Mileage Tolerance?
« Reply #20 on: March 20, 2017, 05:55:42 AM »
I have no idea, nor does the detail interest me; I have forgotten, apart from I set it to be 20,000 km until next service. So last was at 40,000,  next will come on at 60,000; I have no idea , nor can I remember whether you set it by "illuminate at 60,000km" or " " illuminate after the next 20,000 on."  I will tell you what I do when I get to 60,000. There are about 6000 to go.


 
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, however, there is.

BURT ,something odd here then, just checked mine again and it will definatly give me 9000 MILES between services, perhaps some have slightly different software, ?
we will see if despite setting at 9000 it comes on at 6000 miles on...

I see... Sorry for asking. I'll try to remember that for the next statement...


@ digger06

Thank you for double checking again. When we did try to set the three Tigers for 10500, 15000 and 12000 km, but the spanner did reappear only after 500 km in the first 5000 in the second and 2000 in the third, so we acknowledged that you can't pass the 9999 km or 6000 miles between services on a Tiger... That's why I was intrigue by the 20000 km statement of Jamstealer... But after his last reply I think I know the answer to my own question...

 :084: ... so, based on that I would set the spanner to appear at half the required distance, 5250, 7500 & 6000 and as soon as the spanner appears the first time simply clear and ignore it knowing that the next time will be actual service time. :028:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Not really relevant to my question...  :110:
