    I haven't had any gearbox issues so far, but can't help but feel that the graunching sound when changing to second gear at higher revs has got to be doing some damage..... Good luck to you. We will be awaiting the outcome...

    Hey Grant do you still have to get a WOF every 12 months when you pay your rego over there? Thinking of bringing my 9 home but wary of having to pass a WOF all the bloody time

    Hello hoss yes you need to get a WOF every 12 months with your rego.once your car or bike is over 5 years old its every 6 months. A real pain in the arse.

    Aahh well, don't anyone hold their breath. Typical of your keyboard activist, all blow and no go. If there was extenuating circumstance, would have been polite to let us now.

    Well I hate to say it but I agree. If you just go in and say it's bad without any proof that it was Suzuki's fault, what did you expect? Without proof there is nothing to work with.
