drain the oil and use a engine flush oil , follow the instructions to the letter ,may have to repeat after next oil change, do them every 3000 miles including the filter, nothing beats good maintainance 15k what was you thinking !

Sounds like there may be a problem with the emissions control system. The rubber hoses tend to crack where they attach to the frame/airbox. Also, stop using fuel cleaners and oil conditioners in your victory. They will not do anything to help your bike.

I also have a 8500 passport that flashes laser and will go off


Does this happen in the city or does it happen when you are out in the middle of nowhere? I have seen laser detectors that are falsely triggered by various lighting devices that contain wavelengths of light similar to those used in police laser.

If this is annoying and you dont want to hear it, you can locate the receiver element that detects the laser signal and cover it up with a piece of black electrical tape. That should stop whatever is causing your problem unless there is something actually broken inside the unit.

Thanks,

I just baught an 06 m50 with 8500 miles on it. I am used to bikes with chains, chokes, carbs etc and dont really know what to do with this one. How would you recommend I take care of it.


Great Bike. Suzuki recommends Oil/air change every 6000Klms.(+-3700 miles)
Suggest you blow out air cleaner every 1000 miles.
No adjustment required on drive (Diff), I change the diff oil every 10,000 klm (6000 miles)
As for the rest, it requires no tuning etc, but will required tapped adjustment At +- 12000klm. I would check yours now (8500 miles). There are manuals available on the net.
Obviously check brakes /tires/ oil levels etc
For the rest, keep it clean and enjoy
