    Default Purchased GS150 yesterday

    So I finally bought this beast and I have a few questions.

    First, which tyre should I get to replace the crappy stock rear tyre, and does anyone know a place where I can buy it in Karachi?

    Secondly, any advice on decent security systems for the bike? Good bikes get snatched/stolen wayyy too often here in Karachi unfortunately...

    Thank you.

    Salam, Brothers i am intending to purchase a new Gs150 from Khi, but considering the issues encountered by various PW members my decision for buying this machine is changing. Need an advice from all members whether to still buy it or wait till the issues resolved( and how come i be certain that PakSuzuki had taken appropriate measures to resolve the issues), or shall i go for a AHLb 125 (despite the fact that its the favourite bike of Snatchers in KHI especially & its highly unlikely that you can keep its safe for a long time)? will it be a good decision to rather then buying these go for a used Suzuki Bandit or gs500e(around 1996 model)?

    Silver_knife is satisfied with Dunlop 100/90-18 (3800 rupees). I wanted to go for Dunlop as well but some senior members suggested not to go for it as its tread design was not good for wet conditions. So i went with Korean Golden Boy 3.50-18 (3900 rupees) and pretty happy with it. DSI 100/90-18 (4500 rupees) and IRC 100/90-18 (6000 rupees) were also available in market, but their tread design was more sporty type, most likely not good for wet conditions again, so didn't go for them.
    So "Golden Boy" takes my vote
