Title: Service Manual for V-Strom 250
Post by: ippikin on November 24, 2021, 10:24:34
Hello, does anyone know where you can get one of these? I read that the engine is the same one as in the Inazuma 250, but then I read elsewhere it is the same engine as the GSX250. Maybe they are all the same!
I plan to maintain the V-Strom myself so a manual would be very useful!
Thanks, Ippikin

All three share the same engine. Funnily enough I bought an Inazuma a couple of weeks ago and went on my first proper ride of about 80 miles this morning. Very impressed for a 4 stroke 250 that has a bit of weight to it. Here is a link to manual

Hello.   I have one too, done 10k on it and apart from oil/filter it doesn't seem to need much. Speaking to a few folk who have them the 3k valve check seems overkill and I didn't do mine till 10k and the inlets were in spec but the exhausts were a bit tight.
Bikes and Travels has a good write up on the valve check which helped me. I have posted the link in case it might help you when the time comes.
