2006 Suzuki Boulevard C50T from United States of America
Nothing has gone wrong. Best bike I ever owned.
My problem is I ran it low on oil, which I constantly check. It went somewhere, don't know where. No smoke. Shut it down after a ride, the next time I started it, it had a rap in the engine. Was told to use a heavier oil, which I did; new filter and 20w50 synthetic oil. Engine is fine, no rap, no problem. However the trans has a shifting problem. Shifting from first to fifth, no problem, but down shifting to second or first, I find myself in neutral, and have to play with the shifter to get to first gear. Was it the fact I was low on oil that damaged something in the trans, or is the heavier synthetic oil to blame? I can shift it down, but have to play with it too much. Can't afford a big rebuild of the trans. Thanks, Ron.
This bike is perfect for my needs, easy to handle, uses regular gas. There are a lot of other bikes, domestic and imported, but I wouldn't change for any of them. I'm disappointed in myself, because I always check my tires and oil level. Now I'm faced with a problem that I created.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
