On the weekend I did a post about the wobble in my back wheel and the forum diagnosed the problem as a blown out bearing - allwalk posted some photos that looked all too familiar and I rushed my Burg to a reliable mechanic as fast as I could - yes you heard right - a reliable mechanic. Anyway, the work, including my 12000 KM service, was finished today and the bearings they removed were mashed up! The mechanic called Suzuki and explained that this is the third time he's seen the problem and maybe they should cover the service and they said too bad because I'm out of warranty. The guy even gave me their direct line so I could follow up myself. I told the mechanic to check this site and search bearings because there is more than one of these stories within this forum. The moral of the story is until Suzuki adds a bearing check to the regular service - make sure you check your bearings. And all hail the forum - if it wasn't for this group I would have almost been talked into a new rim and tire by someone who didn't know his stuff.
