2009 Suzuki Boulevard C90
Excellent bike for the bucks
Bad gas is a nightmare to try and remove. Can't siphon.
Excessive vibration through the handlebar.
Small fuel tank, no reserve.
Passenger foot pegs a little high for comfort.
Otherwise a great bike.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Can anyone tell me why on earth Suzuki put on a smaller tank than the C50? What's up with that? I have a C50 and I love it, but am looking to upgrade, and the C90 is really what I'm thinking about, but this false tank business is really driving me to think twice. I can get a little over 300 km on C50, and am told the C90 gets considerably less.

I agree with the tank reserve issue. 3.7 gallons only get you about 150 miles on the C90. Also have vibration in the handle bars. Otherwise, handles well, and a comfortable ride.

I have a 2008 C90, and love the bike, but hate the limited range. I just put a Gman aux tank, an extra 10 litres of fuel. I now get over 400km on a fill! I had to change out the stock pipes, as the aux tank needed the space under the bike that they use. The GMan tank is an excellent product that I would highly recommend.

If you put a cruise control on its grip and set it at 90 KM/H (of course the speed will vary according to the ups and downs of the road) you will be able to get almost 250 to 270 KM per tank.
I was once traveling to Sharm El Shekh in Egypt and missed a fuel stop; I got 60 KM from the start blinking of the last fuel mark, and when I got to the fuel station, I put in 14L; this means that there was still a half L in the tank.
The secret of the excellent handling of the C90 is the location of the fuel tank; it's in the center of the bike and right below the rider.

The C90 is known for crap stock bearing in the steering. Change out to tapered bearings and it will be a whole new bike.

How was the cooling??. I know that Sharm can get really warm and some comments mentioned that the C90 can feel hot in traffic.
