Went to pass a car the other day and when I opened it up to get around it the bike really hesitated a lot, it died then it woke up. Did any body else have this happen yet.

what were your rpm's before you did this? if ya weren't at least at 3k, ya should downshift before expecting any get up and go.

I always run 93 octane and I down shifted at around 3 grand I did not hit the rev limiter and the bike just died And then picked back up.I always buy gas at the same place and never had trouble with it. I have 5700 miles on the bike.

HUH ? WTF did that come from ?

I've been thinking recently that my bike is running worse around 2500 then it did before (slugish, more vibration). I thought it might be a tank of bad gas and have run 3 or more tanks through it since then but it still seems different. Dealer checked it out, called Suzuki and the Tech on the phone said "yep, it does that, don't drive it below 3,200 rpm"

Something is different but for now I'll drive it till they figure out whats going on or it breaks.

that happens , squirrel; each gear is designed for a certain reaction in certain conditions. you gotta learn to work the torque; not necessarily what the tach says.
