2009 Suzuki Boulevard C90T

Summary:

This is the last one

Faults:

Refused to start, once, for a minute. Readout read FI. Turned the key off then on and it fired right up. Kinda spooks you out in the middle of nowhere.

General Comments:

Plenty of power solo or two up. Don't know why others are getting mid 40's mpg. I ride 55mph/90klm on two lane and 65mph/105klm on multi, and get 57 mpg two up and 61 solo. (imp/gal). And that was on my 1st and 2nd tank. I'm expecting 1 or 2 more once it loosens up.

I love the weight of these big boy's on the highway. No more getting blown around by trucks and side winds.

Comfort is good, but my wife say's "Mustang seat Please".

I've had many more bike's than I deserve over the year's. I'm retiring next year, and I think this is the one I'll ride off into the sunset on.

I have a 2006 and three other bikes, and ride around 325 days a year. I grew up on Harleys, but I do love this bike.

I have put on 26,000 so far, and zero problems. I have made several 2000 to 3000 mile trips. This bike loves the open road, and I love this bike!

Do you still have your C90T? I'm looking at buying one, and was impressed by the reviews on this site.

2007 Suzuki Boulevard C90T

Summary:

Great bike, give me a few more options though

Faults:

I have had a very bad steering wobble for about a year. I recently had to replace the original back tire (Bridgestone W/W) at 22000K. A very serviceable tire IMHO, and the original front is still on the motorcycle.

My complaint is that the dealer has stated that the steering head bearings need to be replaced on this bike to get rid of the wobble. He demonstrated the "flat spot" to me as the bike was in the shop and on a lift.

I was told that there is NO way to grease these bearings as part of a regular maintenance program. And to take the front end apart to repack the bearings, is the same amount of labour as to replace what appears to be about $100C parts.

So SUZUKI, what is with this? Coming from an agricultural upbringing, I find it VERY disappointing that a world class manufacturer would not take a lesson from some one like John Deere or Caterpillar.

General Comments:

No serviceability for the steering head bearings, a MAJOR safety concern.

Fit and finish, fantastic.

Needs a sixth gear.

Price point value to price was excellent.

IMHO, a truly gorgeous cruiser.

When you go to the dealer or the mechanic's shop for that problem of handle bars vibrating, most likely they will tell you that the bearings of the handle bars are bad. Of course they want to sell, it happened to me and some of my friends, but in my case it was not the bearings at all; in my case the only thing was that I needed a new front tire, it was time to replace it already. Also if your tire don't have the proper air pressure, too flat or too much air, it can make the handle bars vibrate.

Summary:

Long, comfortable, agile cruiser!

Faults:

Nothing... perfect so far.

General Comments:

I upgraded from the C50 to the C90T because I do a lot of two up riding.

This bike is agile around town, and an absolute pleasure to ride on the highway.

The bike has a tall fifth gear for cruising speeds, so it's more comfortable in fourth under 90 kms/hr. The smaller gas tank usually isn't an issue for me, because after 120 miles I'm ready to stretch my legs.

Creamy smooth and long, this bike has got to be one of, if not the best cruisers on the market.
