Hello.
You know my AN650K3 (32000km 20000Mi) will receive a news unitsCVT in July because it emits a worrying whistle.
Well(!), today I receive this message to http://fr.groups.yahoo.com/group/Maxiscooters-fr/message/7374 One AN650K4 also will be repaired him by Suzuki for the same problem; though more serious!
Pirmil you will smell yourself less only! My Burgman will meet your at suzuki France for 15 days: belt drive broken 1100 kms (700 Mi !!!). It was, last Saturday, in revision of the 1000 kms... I heard a whistle which became increasingly acute with l acceleration, two sudden starts, then a large noise (small explosion) in the box and To finish -> none rotation of the wheel. Really not a funny story... For information: Price of a new box 3000 euros which exchanged free by suzuki... Gerard
With soon... Sorry for my English... the emotion!

Well I hope that at least Suzuki will pay for that repair. Also hope that is not going to be a problem for everyone else! Thanks for the info Pirmil.

CVT Belt

I hate to sound so skeptical but is there a way to be sure that those stories about broken CVT belts are true? :oops:

Hello Alanh.

Only, my sincerity is guaranteed! And, I am active member Association of Scooterist of France... This problem does not remove extraordinary qualities of the 650. is always my preferred bike !
Perhaps suzuki will publish a repair recall for all an650, one day future.
bye ... follow

Our last ride. (London, Chambord, La Rochelle...)

The long list of links is of Internet groups that discuss the Burgman. Kind of impressive that there are so many. Of the several groups that are in English, most limit message reading to members. The Maxi-Scooters group did allow me to read and search messages without joining. I found similar speculation on belt life to what we have had here the past several days - in some cases, the same exact messages...

One gal did say that she pressed Suzuki UK for an answer on belt life. They responded with "life of the scooter". She pressed further, and was told "at least 60,000 miles".

Anything mechanical can break or wear out eventually - and I know that there have been several early failures in the belt/transmisson/clutch area on the 650. But this has been an extremely low percentage of the machines sold - it has not been a rash of incidents.

If the belt lasts 60,000 miles or 75,000 miles - that is reasonable I think. However, I do not want to be stranded on the road with a broken belt. So I think what Suzuki owes us - and what they have not provided so far - is a realistic interval for having the belt inspected.

If you look at the manual the belt inspection requires complete dismantling of the machine......I mean complete. I think Suzuki knowing this would go that extra step to insure that the belt would be the last thing to be replaced on this machine. Now as Pauljo states there are going to be malfunctions in any product that is manufactured. The problem so far numbers 2. Thats a very low percentage given the number of burgmans out there. I dont think it will be a common occurence
my $.02 worth.

I agree. I don't know what is involved, in terms of labor, in a belt inspection, but Suzuki should include it in the AN650's maintenance schedule.

Does anyone know if it is possible to do a belt inspection on one's own?
