    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.

    And Now! I AM CONFUSED :-D

    I will be driving this bike almost every week for more then 300KMs on GT Road. So I would need good grip and best breaking. :-)

    hahahaha very well said sir. that's why i said yahan her curious biker ka yehi delima hai. yahan wohi khush hain jo bus bike chalatay hain sochtay nai.... haha.

    But i am not confused at least. I was confused but not now (especially after riding GS i got it that this isn't my kind of bike although it is awesome but doesn't suit my riding style. so confusion over ). and @bilalayub919 your confusion will be removed as well once you'll start believing in your ride and get femiliar to it just one advice just enjoy its ride and STOP thinking let it be for a while...... (i know its hard for us but still let it go for a while)

    I would agree with @angel82

    Don't mess with the stock bike so soon. You might alter something you never wanted in the first place, and then regret it for the rest of the time, having wasted both time as well as money

    We all have different personalities, and we all want to modify our bikes in different ways. This is why two properly modifed bikes will never look the same, even if both bikes were modified for the same reason/goals. Take a look at my bike and that of @12guage , and you will understand what im talking about. Im no where close to his expertise, but you get the idea



    Try enjoying factory specs to the full for a year or two. Get used to it. Then see " what do I find missing in the stock motorcycle". Is alteration really necessary, or am I just modifying for the sake of modification?The answer might be yes for you and no for someone else. If you can really convince yourself that you need the modification, and that you can achieve it without turning your bike into a Pandora box of issues, then go for it. That, my friend, would be a real modification

    AFter the recent price revision i hate this bike. Paksuzuki guys are on drugs.
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    AoA Everybody

    @bilalayub919 @vickytulla @dr.omair

    often times I see and hear people talk about installing a fatter tyre for added grip in GS-150. in my humble opinion, the rationale is purely Homepathic in nature where result the result is based on expectation rather real/quantifiable evidence. a user installs a fatter tyre expecting that it would increase his braking ability and instantly the increase in braking ability is felt because of that strong expectation.

    what people do not consider about installing fatter tyres:

    1. loss of acceleration
    2. loss of fuel average
    3. change in gearing ratio
    4. increase in engine load due the change in gearing ratio
    4. increase in gear load on Clutch plates due to change in gearing ratio

    in short: you will wear out your engine sooner.

    I am sure somebody would probably stand up and say that he/she has seen people riding bikes with fatter tyres to no ill-effect, well....I would humbly state "Its your bike, who am I to stop ya from riding into the sunset for a happy ever-after?"

    Still if you insist, this is how I would recommend:

    1. get a wider rim instead of a fatter tyre, see if it helps. you might consider HONDA Deluxe's rim which is quiet wider then GS-150's.

    2. if that didn't tickle your fancy, how about installing a smaller rim. e.g., installing a 17inch Rim then install a fatter tyre. a bit of calculation may be required (easily available online) to ensure that your stock gearing ratio remains the same. this way, your gearing ratio will not change by much (again, ensure via online gearing ratio calculators).

    Similarly, the increase weight of the rubber (fatter tyre) will be offset by the decrease in overall circumference of the tyre (smaller diameter of the tyre). hence, there will be no additional load on your bike's engine/clutch plates. (READ: Rotational Inertia)

    Bottom Line: any modification when done right is usually an expensive and hectic ordeal. now you should know why Homeopathic solutions are so inexpensive and usually require administration of a few sugar coated (pardon the pun, they are literally sugar coated) pills or a few drops that cure everything where the conventional medicine succumbed to total failure. lols!

    Regards.

    1. get a wider rim instead of a fatter tyre, see if it helps. you might consider HONDA Deluxe's rim which is quiet wider then GS-150's.

    2. if that didn't tickle your fancy, how about installing a smaller rim. e.g., installing a 17inch Rim then install a fatter tyre. a bit of calculation may be required (easily available online) to ensure that your stock gearing ratio remains the same. this way, your gearing ratio will not change by much (again, ensure via online gearing ratio calculators).

    Similarly, the increase weight of the rubber (fatter tyre) will be offset by the decrease in overall circumference of the tyre (smaller diameter of the tyre). hence, there will be no additional load on your bike's engine/clutch plates. (READ: Rotational Inertia)

    Bottom Line: any modification when done right is usually an expensive and hectic ordeal. now you should know why Homeopathic solutions are so inexpensive and usually require administration of a few sugar coated (pardon the pun, they are literally sugar coated) pills or a few drops that cure everything where the conventional medicine succumbed to total failure. lols!

    That's why i am not installing a fat tyre in my GS
