2002 Suzuki LS 650 Savage from United States of America
Very good bike for local back road highway riding
Battery box lid lock come loose and fell off.
Throttle cable was sticking - fixed it.
No other problems.
Great bike. Handles good, real good for curve roads.
Light bike, looks good. I've done some modifications and put some half running boards on the front pegs. Put a windshield on it and show light and fog lights.
It's a good running bike. It does backfire at times, but I have heard that is normal for the Savage 650.
It is not the most comfortable ride; got to stop more often, but it handles real well.
I like the bike; it's good for just me, and to tool around the back roads. I plan to keep the bike, but will get a bigger bike for the wife and me to travel on now if I can talk the wife into it.
Overall the Savage is a great bike. Not the fastest, but a good bike.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
