On a good note I rode the bike for 10 miles today and I love it. It is just amazing. I did not get on it too hard because it was quite cold out today but it’s smooth, powerful, comfortable, and handles as I expected!
I would be too.The owner has been good so far but im quite worried.
Yeah I hear you. They did say they would get the parts when I was picking the bike up. I did go through it pretty thoroughly already. It was a little low on motor oil. All the bolts were tightened up and I removed the reflectors and passenger pegs. I was in love with the bike and I can be impulsive. It’ll be fine in the end.I would be too.
I would want a different bike. Who knows what else is scratched, damaged, or missing on this one, that you won't find until you do some work on it.
That's just my personal opinion.
Be careful about overfilling the oil. If you do, it will come out of the left air filter housing and ruin your air filters. You'll need to clean the airbox, too.Yeah I hear you.

Here's a link to an '08 Owner's manual. I don't think they have changed.Thanks for that. I cant wait to get my owners manual and my service manual. Thats pretty close to what I did but the engine had probably cooled down more than that but not cold. The oil did not reach the dipstick when I checked but I’ll be checking it properly before riding anymore. I thought the gear oil might be low too but i left that alone. I found a place to download the owners manuals. I should have done that. Thanks for the help.
welcome , what color combo did you get ?Hello! Im Dave from CT. I love Suzuki and I’m picking up my new blue 2023 M109R this Friday. The dealer is receiving the crate and assembling the bike on Thursday. I am super excited. Im not a newbie to bikes. I do all of the work and maintenance myself. Ive had lots of bikes but currently have 2008 gsxr600 dedicated track bike, 2017 gsxr1000 mostly street some track, and a 2008 boulevard C50T limited edition. I mostly ride at the track doing at least 15 days per year but I’m looking forward to more street riding this year. Looking forward to being here and learning more!
Pictures are in the first page of this thread, the blue with black trim. Welcome to the forum too.welcome , what color combo did you get ?
No doubt Im pissed but I’m trying to be nice so I get somewhere with them. They did show me a picture of the bike when they got it back to their dealership in the crate. Those pictures are on the first page of the thread. Definitely looks like original crate.Just a thought, Did the bike come direct from Suzuki or pinched from another dealers stock.
Perhaps it may have been poorly re-packed and shipped in another crate?
Hope you get it sorted mate. If it were me I'd be pissed.
