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

    I'm coming up on my first tire change on the 9. On my ADV bikes I've always done my own. I have a Motion Pro beadbreaker, spoons, rim protectors, balancer, etc. But not a proper tire changing...

    You need to pick up a sliver B-King to match the 9. Then sell me your black one to match my black 9.

    I'm actually thinking of getting a black B-King then having both bikes get some gold...

    I used this on the driveshaft and wheel splines of my Rocket III. Plan on the same with the 9 when I change tires.

    If you get the chance, I recommend the Wheels Through Time museum in Maggie Valley. Nirvana for bikers-lots of old (but I think just US made) bikes. The neat part is that they actually run them...

    Longest lasting tires???

    I've been reading through lots of tire threads; most are more focused on performance and the widest possible tires. I have a 100 mile round trip commute and rack up quite a few miles. I also have a...

    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...

    Any 9ers in the Spokane/CDA area?

    Any members in Eastern WA, North Idaho? I just picked up an '07 a few weeks ago. I've only seen 1 or 2 around, I think a few years ago at Curley's.
  12. Such a good platform, why hasn't Suzuki built more models off it?

    I'm pretty impressed with the job Suzuki has done with this bike-IMO perhaps the best "cruiser" engine in the industry. I have to wonder why they haven't built more "spin-offs" off the 9? It would...

    Why not a Harley? Well, I own (in the process of selling) an Indian Roadmaster. It's very comparable to a HD-air cooled motor, horribly overpriced and underpowered. I made the decision to sell it...

    I'm torn. The Tsukayus have some pretty bulky brackets when you remove them. But to be honest-much as I like the looks of the bike better without them-practicality wins out. I commute nearly 100...

    Thanks for the pictures, those ended up looking good-you were able to get them mounted in pretty close to the bike, which I like. I'm torn between these and the painted ones (either Lamillars or...

    Nice bike-congrats on the purchase! And welcome from Idaho. Are there many 109s in South Africa? Or KTMs for that matter-I have a 1290 SAR? To me-the Harley "lifestyle" comment is funny-I just...
  22. Does anyone make "soft lowers" for the Suzuki crash bars.

    I've seen these on other big cruisers-they are leather panels that fill in the open area in a set of crash bars. I ride in cold weather, and we get big daily temperature swings (40 degrees is...

    The thing is-a lot of the most fun roads around here end up turning into dirt before you can make a loop. Great on a ADV bike, but a fair amount of out-and-back on a street bike. There are enough...

    250 lbs here-stock at 4 it was brutal on our uneven, rough roads. At 1 it's tolerable and still plenty firm. IMO they have way oversprung this bike. (Mine is an 07, other years may be different)

    Before anyone gets offended-I mean the following in a very positive way.


    I'm a big-time ADV rider (adventure bikes-aka dual/sports, on-off road). Most of the members on Facebook boards and that...
