2008 Suzuki Boulevard C90T from Canada

Summary:

Love the look, style and handling

Faults:

Stator.

General Comments:

The bike has a small fuel tank, but I installed the G-Man tank and the G-man processor, and K&N filter with a Vance & Hines 2 into 1 exhaust, and it is awesome.

2008 Suzuki Boulevard C90T from United States of America

Faults:

My 2008 Boulevard C90T has a little problem; I don't know if this is normal, but after 80 mph, I feel the bike struggles to go faster and has no power. I weigh 167 pounds (not much), and I have installed a voltmeter reader to monitor my battery. The more RPM, the less volts reading I get; I think it should be the other way around. From 13.4 volts it drops around to 11.8 volts. That's why I think I have no more power after 80 mph. I've already replaced the stator & regulator, but it's still the same???

General Comments:

Other than that, with all the features: fuel injection, oil cooling radiator, hydraulic clutch, aluminum rims, and a final drive shaft, it's a nice bike, and the handling is good and smooth.

2008 Suzuki Boulevard C90T from United States of America

Summary:

Best bike for the money

Faults:

Replaced tires at 10000 miles.

General Comments:

Tons of OEM and after market parts.

Handles great in turns, just no sharp turns or the floorboard will drag.

Great top end speed. I have had mine up to 115 mph.

I recommend keeping the white wall tires. I bought black walls and they just don't look the same. I will go back to white walls when I replace my current tires.

I highly recommend adding a light bar and highway bars.

2008 Suzuki Boulevard C90T from New Zealand

Summary:

Love it the more I ride it

Faults:

Tires let the bike down originally and gave me no feeling of confidence in corners. Swapped them for Metzlers and that cured it.

General Comments:

Corners much better than my S83 did, and the comfort factor, especially for my partner, is great.

Reading the comments on this site gave me enough information to make up my mind to buy it.

I am going to fit a Gman Power Commander to the bike to even out the stock fuel injection system, and add some beef to the acceleration. Plus a K&N filter to replace the stock one, as the bike needs to breathe. My partner wants rear pillion floorboards, so I'll probably use Kuryakyn for that.

Additionally I am adding a TRE Timing Retard Eliminator to the C90T, as I have read that Suzuki set the timing to comply with some pretty draconian emission control regulations. I am told these very cheap ($35) upgrades increase the acceleration in the lower gears; a simple plug and play item.

Summary:

Excellent Highway Cruiser

Faults:

Throttle Position Sensor - sometimes revs up (when at idle) all by itself, or won't come completely down to normal idle when coming to a stop.

General Comments:

I love this bike! I’m 54 yrs old; hadn’t ridden in 30+ years; am 195 lbs, and 6 ft tall. I bought the bike in August of 2008 and have ridden it for a few months now (as of May 2009 - before and after the winter). The C90T (Canadian model with light bar, windshield, crash bars, white walls and saddle bags included) is great on the highway – very, very stable. Even in high cross winds (which we seem to get a lot of around here) and with semi’s coming and going, I feel very safe on the bike (despite my relative lack of riding experience).

The low centre of gravity made it an excellent choice for someone like me who was not a brand new beginner, but had not ridden in three decades, i.e., really stable and forgiving, especially at high speed. I find it to be fairly easy to manoeuvre at low speed in tight turns as well, BUT, it is a heavy bike so I wouldn’t recommend it solely as a bike for riding around town.

There are only two negatives that I would comment on. The seat is not that comfortable (for me) and the fuel tank is not that big.

No doubt the seat discomfort that I experience is due to my longer legs and where/how I sit on the bike, so it may not apply to others. I’m finding that the trick seems to be to try to sit more forward (i.e., at the longitudinal centre of the seat) than I would naturally do. This means that I have to scrunch up a little, which feels a bit awkward. The natural position for me is at the back of the seat which is the hardest and most painful. The seat is springier in the middle.

I get 40.41 mpg or 5.82 L/100 km in mixed riding, which generally equates to around 225 km/140 mi endurance (250 km/155 mi if I have a tailwind, am feeling lucky and have my CAA/AAA roadside assistance membership card at the ready). That works out to around two hours riding (on the highway) which is about as far as I’d want to go without a break.

Did I mention that I love this bike?

Great bike, I am 6'1" 230 lbs and I picked up the Suzuki gel seat. You sit lower and back and I can ride all day without much discomfort at all. The stock seat gave me a sore butt after only about 45 minutes; go with the gel seat, you will love it.
