Just purchased a 2007 M109r Limited Edition. I will be picking it up tomorrow, and I am getting excited! I have been a long time Honda rider and gave up my VTX 1800N. This is my first Suzuki, so I was wondering if there was anything I needed to keep my eye out for, or if I should ride it like I stole it! Wondering of there are any major differences between the Hond and Suzuki lines. By the way, lead me to the MODS!!!!!
:D

You found a "NEW" 2007 bike? I ask, because you wanted to know about breaking in the bike.

Hi

Hi buddy im new to the 9,had mine about 3months,love it,never had a bike that gets so much attention and is such a blast to ride,and iv had alot of bikes,so enjoy yours and hey the mods jeez iv just started with mine and its infectious,from what i can see the bikes run strong they have had some clutch issues on early ones and they dont take well to being overfilled with oil and puke it out the airbox,but there are some real 109 experts here so they will chime in soon for sure,so welcome and enjoy.....

Sorry about that - the bike has 5200 miles on it. I know what Honda's service intervals are, but I am not familiar with Suzuki's.

"Dagovernor"? what kind of pompus, self appreciating screen name is that? :D. If it's new ride it like you stole it, just don't over rev, vary the RPMs and switch to full syn. oil after 5 or 6 hundred miles then you're good to go! :welcome:

I guess I picked it because another pompous, self-appreciating person already had "The Chief". And since you mentioned it, the dealer told me that Suzukis dont' ask for Syn. oil, but I have always run it in my other bikes - should I find another dealer?

Forget about all dealers IMO. Full Syn. Is simply a superior lubricant (IMO). You'll love this bike
