    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.

    360?????? Ya Allaah these shop owners made a fool out of me

    I remember I had to leave for a tour to northern areas and desperately wanted delux indicators.....I went to the nearest honda 3s dealer and he sold me 4 indicators for 240/piece . In total, I paid 1200 which also included labour.

    Yes, 150 rs was the labour for the fitting. They really get the monster out!

    I got them from a Whole sale Honda dealer who had different qualities. I had two already from my Zxmco ZX70 so bought 2 for 90 each. The best Honda ones they had were of 100/- per piece. For if you bought 4, you get them for 90/- each. I dont know about you but the ones I bought were in a white plastic cover like they have on CD's.

    It was a total Nushka For 510 Rs.

    Dr Sab had the thought but when I saw it on your ride, it was DEFINING the ride. Beautiful so went with it.

    But to be honest, I am really worried about the breaking. AGLI BREAK TO LAGTI HE NAHIN. Pechi Ka Phir Saraha Hay Thora. Now Need guide

    I am experimenting on the front brake shoes. So far, results have been promising. In case it works out fine, I will share the results. Till then, keep bike below 60 unless you are in a clear road

    Well, its totally up to the owner if he wants to upgrade the brakes or not. My yamaha junoon had a faulty drum that would literally eat brake shoes... the braking was also poor.
    But i got used to it, I drove the bike with same stopping power for 4 years and just recently got a new sleeve from kharadia...

    Braking is much better now, previously i had to almost stand on the rear brakes to make the wheel jam... as if it had a built in abs system. Lol.. the brake's response time was very poor.

    But now i can get full stopping power on just a touch of the pedal.. im also more prone to slipping and loosing tread of my rear tire now.

    If u'd be driving on a highway... i recommend keep ur front brakes drum.. but always adjusted to the best! Give immediate attention if ur front brake's response time isnt good. (Bad brake shoes that develop shine, brake cable that stucks, brake lever play adjustment all should be well taken care of)

    For rear brakes... well a fatter tire should do it, check the drum for factory defect and get a sleeve if required. Check both drums..

    Most braking problems in today's bikes are due to low quality drums which in result destroy braking capabilities of ur brake leathers... (Shine/uneven wear/hardens the shoes etc.)

    Im not in favor of disk in GS... bcoz most other bikes on road don't have any brakes at all... and car walas aren't paying any attention on the road... over efficient brakes can get u hit from behind really bad. Specially on a highway... (i just have drum brakes but im busy saving my **** from getting hit all the time by car walas, since i have rear view mirrors i know most people are driving without any attention)

    Hence imho.. just try and fix the current set up to the best, u can add a bit wider tire just as a support...

    Spending 10-15ks isnt that wise..

    Bike is new and don't put a wider tire yet, it might over load ur engine. Experiment after at least 2k kms

    First fuel of Rs 900/- ended today at 294 KMs.

    One thing I noticed that the fuel was on all the time and when I switched to reserve, there was no petrol. Any guide about that?
