'08 GSX-R600 for the holidays!
Earlier this month a customer paid me with a crashed/stolen/recovered bike he bought from a guy who bought it from an auction. I've had lots of bikes and been riding 24 years -- but never a Suzuki. I love it. I changed the oil (filthy, 14,600 miles on the bike, too-small crush-washer on the plug that took 45 minutes to remove). I replaced the stock yellow and broken tail with a CL find of the white/blue one shown. CL also brought me replacement aftermarket un-bent footpegs to replace the stock, substantially bent ones. And my other, daily rider is shown in the second photo, my '84 Interceptor 500. The only work on the Suzuki I might need a shop to do is (1) the rectifier recall, (2) new ignition barrel (punched), and (3) brake lights (none right now). I'm waiting on title anyway from DMV so I have some time to futz -- she needs me to bleed the rear brake, and to buy some hardware store L-joints to mount a license plate (there's some sort of aftermarket fender eliminator on now with a white light shining towards the passenger pegs), and to replace the battery. A new air filter probably wouldn't hurt. Rode the bike the 15 or so miles home though and I LOVE her. Who knew these Suzuki sport bikes (and their easy-start fuel injection) were so fantastic? I'm glad this website and knowledge is here, I've been reading it for weeks now. Have a great holiday, all!
