    Short Brake/Clutch levers?

    Does anyone know of short brake and clutch levers for the 9? I've run them on my other bikes and much prefer them. Usually ride with 2 fingers on the clutch lever-much easier with shorties.

    Ouch, that makes for an expensive ride! I put on a Commander II, from what I've read (and experienced on my touring bike) they last very well. Will be interesting to see how it does on the 9. ...

    Sidestand isn't an issue as others have said. One hint-buy an oil filter with a hex nut on the end-makes changing a lot easier (K&N, perhaps others). There is no room to get a strap wrench or cap...

    I had my ECU flashed by him the first week I had the bike-huge difference in ridablity at lower RPMS. Best money I ever spent.

    Well, so long as you have more miles on the bike than posts, it's all good.

    Not much over 100 from what I've read. Depends on how it's ridden. I used my R3R (and 9) as my go-to bike. Daily commute is 100 miles-wish I could comfortably get 200 out of the 9. The 6 gallon...

    The $30k one is a limited edition "factory custom". The 2 new ones are the "regular" versions-no price has been announced. Was toying with a V-Max but the lack of range was a deal breaker.

    Just curious-is there ever a meet in the west? Would love to attend but the east coast is tough, something closer would be fun.

  15. Anyone change their own tires? How bad is the rear to do?

    I've been toying with a ZX-14R as my next bike, but your posts have me interested in a B-King. Looks like a pretty awesome machine. How would you compare it to a Super Duke R or GT, or a H2 SX SE?

    Seems like a much more reasonable price. MSRP is ~45% higher than that, hence my question.

    Why is MSRP so high on a new 9?

    Yeah, I know no one pays MSRP and they are deeply discounted. And yes, compared to a Harley or Indian they aren't too bad. But MSRP on a 2019 M109R is $15,149. That's more than a 'Busa or ZX-14R...

  25. Such a good platform, why hasn't Suzuki built more models off it?
