Good day members,
I am thrilled to finally have established a profile on this site, as I have frequently browsed through posts for inspiration and assistance. I look forward to sharing my experiences and supporting others in their adventures on the super-scoot Burgman. I am a relatively new owner, and dont know how I was able to survive without it. I was a Elite-ist in my earlier years (Elite 80) and then moved into the more significant bikes (CB750). I have returned to my roots in a way, and find comfort being back in the scooter saddle.


Cheers,
Linc :cheers:

Thanks Mike! Always good to have someone to sympathize with when the heat of summer comes to the southwest. I am impressed with your milage, 46k? That sure is reassuring. I recall when 15K used to be "high milage," which is obviously not the case here. Can you generalize any problems you have had (if any) during your scooter's life? I want to keep the Burger in good shape as long as possible, and hope to have a little idea of what to expect.

Thanks,
Linc.

Yea how about the heat were are having right now in the winter. Showing 93 now here at 1:00 pm. :shock:
Beside the normal oil changes & tires I have replaced 2 CVT belts. They will go longer then the 14,500 that Suzuki says to change them at. Replaced clutch at 36k and resealed the front forks at that time also. I change my engine oil every 5k & final drive every 10k using the same synthetic oil. Still has the OEM brake pads. It does think it's a Harley as at marks it's spot on the garage floor :lol:. Very slight engine oil leak between the two engine halves. I don't ride it easy but I don't ride it hard either. Learned long ago that I had to pay for my hard driving. I don't like reaching into my back right pocket and giving $ away for my mistakes. :roll:
