Since the get go have had issues with going into first gear. Had to move it back and forth with issues like this cold and hot. Clutch all in specs as Suzuki tech isn’t tell me. He Indicates this is not normal action. Also some major engine noise in mid range as sounds like valve slap and can easily here it letting clutch out. As noise seems more evident now with more mileage They begin to tell me 3 different issues that it is. After Suzuki rep here’s this tells them it’s characteristic of bike. So now they say they will not be doing anything about theses issues. Anyone else experiencing this?

I’m happy to see the bike i just bought had a great overall review from someone that really knows what they are talking about!!! I have a few issues that I wanted to bring up and get your opinion on.
I just put my first 150 miles on my new Suzuki C90T BOSS and it was a thrill to ride it, however when it came to my first fill up I was surprised to find the gas cap isn’t hinged its comes rt off. I found myself looking for a temporary safe spot to place the gas cap with my key sticking out of it. On top of the gas pump it went. Not thrilled and after tinkering with it I secured the gas cap and was on my way, but I was first concerned with the securing of the gas cap back on the tank. It took a couple of seconds but I figured it out. I obviously wouldn’t want it popping off while I’m riding. Is there an optional accessory by Suzuk or after market cap that has a hinged cap and won’t come off? I would prefer it since that’s what I’ve been used to on my bikes for the last 27 years.
As far as braking goes it seemed front and back seemed ok so far. Especially since that’s what I’ve been used to for years. When I think ABS I think of cars not bikes but most manufactures today like victory and others are going with it. I just want your opinion is there anything I have to worry in regard to safety with the C90T braking system.
Finally the comment before mine had a very good point regarding black bikes. What’s your opinion in regard to safety with this type of color. The bike is fine in my opinion it’s the clothing you wear to bring attention to you out there to surrounding motorists that matter the most.
Thanking you in advance!

I think magazines and manufacturers should emphasize high visibility colors rather than black on black which makes the rider almost invisible. Safety is important and should be encouraged.

And it would be perfect.
