2003 Suzuki VS1400 Intruder

Summary:

I love it...

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong.

The bike backfired a bit on over-run, so I altered the very lean factory settings, and the tractor is real smooth and pulls really well...

General Comments:

Just fitted a Metzler Marathon 888 to the rear and this tyre feels really good compared to the original Bridgestones.

The only negative is that it can take a lot of time (when compared to a fully faired bike) to keep it pristine. I.e. lots of chrome and spokes etc...

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

2004 Suzuki VS1400 Intruder

Summary:

Very good value for money cruiser

Faults:

I have only had this 1400 Intruder (I call it the Tokyo tractor) for a short time, but I really like the looks, the stump pulling grunt, and it gets good fuel mileage. The fuel tank could be bigger, as after 100 to 120 miles I am looking for gas.

In the time I have had the bike, nothing has gone wrong with it.

I find it a really comfortable bike to cruise on.

My wife thinks my Honda CBR1100 Blackbird is more comfortable to be a pillion passenger on. I will not be selling my Honda.

When I bought the bike it had a "Spitfire" windscreen, but there was so much noise coming off this that I soon binned the screen. The bike looks better without it as well.

General Comments:

The bike handles well for a cruiser.

Wind and big vehicles travelling in the opposite direction do not upset this bike much.

To sum up, I think it's a very good bike...
