So it looks like for 2013 we get Dunlops instead of B-Stone BattleAx's.

Your earned your donuts to day my friend. That site has lots of good information, check out the specs!! Even includes torque specs for fasteners.

Thanks,

Went to the Dunlop web site to see the tire, and (unless I missed it), they don't have a scooter tire listed that matches the AN650 specs.

Good info THANKS, but somewhat misleading.
I downloaded the info for my 2012 650 Executive and under the Top 10 Features, it listed this

Suzuki Advanced Immobilizer System (SAIS), a transponder-type transistorized digital computer controlled immobilizer offers increased security. The
ignition switch is conveniently fitted with a magnetic cover that opens only with the correct coded key for security.


I don't think I have this. I just tried and a wide blade screwdriver opens and closes the Ignition switch door no sweat. :(

Is my big ugly key chipped????

The SAIS system isn't included in North American Burgs but the magnetic cover is. There are magnets in the key that should only allow your key to open the cover - they are arranged in a particular order to work with your cover. Why you can open with a screwdriver is not suppose to happen - maybe I should try mine to see if it will work with a screwdriver also.

I find a lot of Suzuki literature to be inaccurate - like the previous post in this thread that mentioned Dunlop tires being listed as standard on the 650. My 2013 400 came with the standard BS Hoops but the literature reads Dunlop just like in the 650 pdf.

If what I read was true in the 650 PDF, I am sure Dunlop would have that on their web site. To take a vehicle manufactures supply of a special part/tire away from another supplier is BIG NEWS for a company like Dunlop. It would be VERY BAD NEWS for Bridgestone/Firestone. Take the seat strut, my 650 has a KYB strut that holds it up. There are much cheaper suppliers out there. Suzuki went with KYB USA.

I particularly like this line item for the 2011 650.

Talk about putting a "spin" on having just two colors.
