2003 Suzuki GSX1400
Great reliable motorbike
Rear wheel bearings at 70k.
Best all round bike I have owned over the past 38 years.
Engine is bullet proof (oil changed every 5K) and extremely torquey - still no rattles or clunks, and it does not use any oil between changes.
The bike is thirsty if ridden hard, but economical if ridden responsibly.
Have added a small fairing to reduce buffeting, but have found that the seat becomes very uncomfortable after about 2 hours - simple to fix. Buy a seat pad and wear a kidney belt and do a thousand ks in a day. Would buy another one, but with servicing, I think this bike will see me out.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
