    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.

    GS 150 2008 Model:
    Got this bike in 2nd half of 2008. I got it as in used condition. Though it belonged to a friend but was . . . . I don’t know why, but I was not satisfied with this machine. So s s s s s sold it sooner.
    Want to share a few things that Pak Suzuki instead of showing Progress and Add new things they had started to cut the cost of the bike. I used 2008 model for about 2000 kms, but found:
    NOTE: It has same issue of CDI, I don’t know much about reason because of replaced with a used one from Bilal Ganj sooner.
    It has same wiring issue. Though I kept this model for short time, but I remember I was returning from a solo tour and during night riding I found all of it’s small lights in Instrumental Panel starting blinking. Moreover, for two times the head light started turning off and I had to wait for 15 minutes, so that the issue cools down and yes, this happened.
    Pak Suzuki Progress in that Model: Instead of progress, PS has shown negative movement.
    Many things are deleted in the model,
    I was afraid due to this cost cutting and thought that a time is coming when their cost cutting will effect quality after decreasing a lot of accessories
    Rear Footrest cover was absent
    Chrome caps of rear shocks were absent
    Chromed dials of meters were absent
    Bikers used to say that the chrome of Silencer get yellowish within a year

    Well malikg with due respect.. Your opinions or experience isnt that much satisfying.. I my self owned three gs 150.. And so far didnt find any issues in any of my bike.. Xcept for the folk's one.. And that to in my second bike which i got like 8 months back..
    Buh i do agree upon ya statement which you have quoted for its parts.. That they are decreasing their parts just to earn some more profit.. Other than this i still rode it very comfortably and sakoon ke sath.. !

    GS 150 2010 Model:

    Instead of improvements, additions in 2010, this bike was still having deletion program going on. I got 2010 GS in new. But it was just satisfying a need, where I cld have a bike that has more weight and will be stable on road. And may be something was satisfying me by saying that it’s biggest bike ever made in Pakistan.

    On the other hand, when we turn to reality, it has nothing attractive, infact it’s very first model was attractive and in 2008 and then 2010, for me it was just loosing the attraction.

    NOTE:

    It has same wiring issue. Though this did not find this issue as much sever as in 2006, but still I found this and many fellow members also claim this in 2010 model.
    Pak Suzuki Progress in that Model: Instead of progress, PS has shown negative movement.
    Many things are deleted in the model,
    I was afraid due to this cost cutting and thought that time is coming when their cost cutting will effect quality
    Rear Footrest cover was absent
    Chrome caps of rear shocks were absent
    Chromed dials of meters were absent
    Bikers used to say that the chrome of Silencer get yellowish in less than 6 months

    So, now we can say that from 2006 to 2010, a few issues were found:

    1- Wiring Quality Problem still present
    2- Quality of Chrome of Silencer moving down
    3- Worst thing, instead of progress, Suzuki GS 150 was going downwards, many accessories were deleted, many good quality parts e.g., Indicators replaced with low quality


    Now comes the most shocking point

    Well, one of PBC member in Khi owned a gs 2010 / 11. Some time later (may be it was 2011 or 2012) he realized that the bike is not balanced. At first he ignored and checked himelf. He used to adjust the front tire. But when he started confirming from mechanics and friends, he found that its true that the bike is not balanced. Then he went to Suzuki Karachi showroom. At first they used to ignore him, but when he insisted that his bike shld be checked or he will use his club to reach Suzuki head office. Tthen, they made some check ups. In short they took bike to a famous denter.

    So, it was finalized that the bike is faulty, the frame is not balanced. I will not share what happened to that case and what was done by Pakistan Bikers Club, but during the process, it was revealed by a Pak Suzuki official in 2012 that the main Jig / Frame, where the GS 150 frame is made, one of the jig over there is not balanced and it was reported to Pak Suzuki but they did not manage the issue.

    So, now I add the worse point:

    1-Wiring Quality Problem still present
    2-Quality of Chrome of Silencer moving down
    3-Worst thing, instead of progress, Suzuki GS 150 was going downwards, many accessories were deleted, many good quality parts e.g., Indicators replaced with low quality,
    4-The frame of many of the GS 150 suzuki sold in Pakistan is not balanced.

    I am one of those aspiring to join GS-150 family. Your thread has made an addition to the list of concerns while purchasing a GS.
    If you or anyone else would please elaborate in detail as to how do I inspect the particular GS-150 which i am purchasing does not have misaligned frame / chassis. Help in this regard would be highly appreciated.
