    Default Suzuki GS150 : Black Swan

    Asalam O Alikum PW Members.

    After the quest of finding a bike for personal use, over a month spent in constant questions, I purchased a Suzuki GS150 today. Bike is Alhumdulliah good in running. Had a few minor queries for which mechanic is not available at the moment. Invoice price was 114500/- but I got it in 115000/- PKR from Suzuki Mangla Motors.

    Looking forward to the ride and a prayer to Almighty Allah for a safe and present experience. Ameen.

    UPDATE APRIL 12th, 2014
    - Got my licence seized by city police :p
    - 250 kms on the dial
    Suzuki GS150  Black Swan -1397185

    - got indicator lights changed to Honda deluxe 2014 style. 360 rs for 4 lights from honda dealer.
    Suzuki GS150  Black Swan -1397186
    Suzuki GS150  Black Swan -1397190

    UPDATE APRIL 17th, 2014
    - Motorbike is now registered with Islamabad Number!

    UPDATE JULY 29th, 2014
    Bike sold.

    I think the deluxe one is smaller.
    Gripping is better but I don't really know caz It was a short way home. I will respond to it in 2 days Insha Allah with a full ride.

    Do update us on the performance of the new rear tyre, but most importantly, the custom brake shoes. Do let us know if you see any improvement in braking

    Yeah breaking is certainly a bit better. MashaAllah. The company break shoe became smooth after just 750kms.

    Had a ride back home with the new tire. After hitting a pothole, the alignment of front rim is out which is producing vibration.
    Back tire is good on grip and no speed loss. Good on bends also due to the Cup shaped thread.

    A lot of 'mitti katta' on shirt and mosquitoes on helmet. :p

    Got 1000kms on meter. Then a quick wash and wax.

    Bro it's not advisable to get your bike wash from these service station due to high pressure water spray, it seeps into wires, electrical joints etc. And when water is inside the bike like underneath the fuel tank or on metal parts where it's obvious that the cleaner won't wipe off the water then your bike is more prone to rusting.
    Just wash it gently on fuel tank and both fenders. No need to wash speedometer area or backlight. Side covers come out easily so easy to wash.

    Please don't mind. Just sharing some basics. Rest bike is looking great. MashaAllah.

    :::UPDATE:::

    1) Changed front beam with CD100's beam. Light has got more focus and throw.

    2) changed back rim to 2.15/18. Grip has increased so is the breaking. Also after isntalling 90/90 tyre.

    3) 2nd oil change - switched to trusted old Zic 4T.

    There is no apparent change in speed or milage. Milage was low from the start so it was not the case :p

    Top speed is 115 and I have been to 120 two times. With the same tyre.

    Just the rim 'karra'. I got it for a bit more then the market because of its availability here. 2500/-

    It is good and smooth. And the grip has increased.

    I got only the front assembly without holder. Bulb is Honda Deluxe's. It was originally from Honda CD100 as he wanted the front of Deluxe.

    Light Assembly : 600/-
    Bulb: 200/-

    Rim is for 2500/-
    Nothing was added or removed. Stock spokes were good for it.

    Oil was Liqui Moli changed at 503kms. Now drained at 1050kms.
