    Default History of GS 150 2006 to 2014 (Buyers Must Read Before Buying)

    Quality gives up in 2014
    &
    Suzuki jeet gaee . . . . .

    With these words above I start a new topic where I will try my best to share experiences of GS 150 2006, GS 150 2008, GS 150 2010 & GS 150 2013.

    The 3/4th of story might not be interesting for people getting new GS, but the last part will be important for new biker brothers.

    well, first of all let me talk about the first GS that continued in sales from 2006 to 2007 end or 2008 start
    this model of bike had great quality.
    `My Journey from Suzuki GS 150 2006 to GS 150 2014 -1486858
    The only thing i was satisfied was the rear tire size, the Graphics @ fuel tank & side covers were attractive. and the change i witnessed in form of a big bike with bigger fuel tank than cg 125 was cool
    the chrome @ fenders, rims, silencer was so great, that i did not feel any problem. infact the silcener started changing color at start / bend after 1.3 yrs.
    a few good acesories like silencer cover, footrest frame cover, fully chromed meter rings and rear shock caps were maatching black & red colors.

    oh yes, once me & Mustafeez noticed that our indicators are very strong that we can park our bikes with their support
    the foam used in seat was also reported very good by many bikers for that model.
    about engine? oh yes,
    my information says it was 100% made & assembled in Thailand at that time. Suzuki Thailand used to export the engine blocks to Pak Suzuki. I remember, once we had to cross a very tough patch in Murree, infact we were on wrong track, but while climbing, GS told me that it had Highest Power level in Pakistan.

    Now talking about the issues.
    Never had engine break up in 2 yrs.
    Few times I had to ride for about 3 hrs in winter & tough summer too.
    Once we were riding @ max from Murree to Lahore @ Max summer, n yes, no long breaks.
    The only issue I faced was very slight missing @ low RPMs, the bike was 15000kms & 1.5 yrs old.

    NOTE: No single service center was able to dignoZe correct problem, when I got the news about issue from Molvi Sb (great mechanic from Saddar Cantt Lahore), it was problem of carb Parts. When I asked Suzuki Service centers, no one in Lahore accepted to do the job.
    My Info says, PAK Suzuki still has the problem of shortage of good Guru Mechanics.

    NOTE: I had to wait for one week when parts arrive Lahore Main Service Center.
    My Info says, PAK Suzuki still has the problem of parts availability (different parts for diferent models).

    Major Issue: After 1.8 yrs I faced problem of CDI in that model, which was again faced by many when their bikes crossed 1.5 yrs of age. Most of us faced issue in less than 2 yrs.
    My Info says that pak Suzuki worked on it and managed the issue after 2008.

    now going to share last point about 2006 Suzuki GS
    which had an issue and it is still noticed in 2008, 2010 & 2013 Models too

    It's wiring quality, being used by Suzuki
    whenver we used to ride at 70 or 85 km p hr speed for long times, we used to see all lights and system shutting down and turning ON themselves. sometimes, we had to manage with great struggle, i mean all lights off. and then battery looked dead. but after two days in normal life, everything appeared to be fine.
    I noticed same issue in 2010 too. and a friend shared same in 2013 model too.

    NOTE: I believe that Suzuki bikes specially Gs has the issue with it, because their vendors system has not improved, it looks like to us

    @malikg115

    Good going man. I love my GS. It is very fortunate it did not go to @imranbhatti hands and escaped from it more than three times
    success is the ability to go from one failure to the next without any loss of enthusiasm

    150 was for 74000 if i remembered correctly and dealer gave me for 73 on cash. Said Its company discount. 125 was only 3 to 4000 less from 150 at the time. I remember asking the dealer why only a puny difference of just 4000 where as interms of things 125 did not had a self start and was also 25cc less. He said something like we want 125 to be gone from the market which is why our 150 is competing Honda 125 interms of price while we are offering better technology and self start.
