+ Great value for the price, looks fantastic, rides fantastic, almost the perfect bike.
- Can't fault this bike so nothing to say here.
+ looks, size, comfort, reliability.
We have now passed 24,ooo km in 18 months with not a hint of trouble. Rear tyre replaced at 16k and front still has about 5k left. Fuel range is easily over 300k, theoretically 330k but I've never run it dry to find out.

+ Reliable, lots of after market parts (good price), well designed, easy to maintain, looks good, great price ($8000)
- Sometimes difficult to shift into 1st or Neutral.
+ The C50 is a reliable bike. I got a new battery last year but nothing else other than regular maintenace
- Need windshield if doing high speed.
An absolutely accurate and concise appraisal of the C50. Outstanding value for money - do yourself a favour and buy one.

I agree.. I have windshield and bags and a top box, also Sat Nav and heated grips ( was spoiled when I had the Beemer) All great accessories for a great little touring bike !@

Not sure what it could be, not ever having experienced the problem myself. My stab in the dark is a fuel supply issue. Perhaps some grit or dirty fuel has restricted supply or clogged injectors. I wouldn't bother about fuel cleaners from a can, as tests indicate limited (or no?) results (e.g. http://www.superstreetonline.com/how-to/engine/impp-1106-fuel-system-cleaners/#__federated=1). Referral to a trusty mechanic to diagnose the issue and if it is the injectors, give them a proper clean. Good luck.

Sadly I think your a bit too heavy for the C 50.. I weigh 110 kg ( 220 lbs and my wife is 80 kg ( 180 lbs..) and whilst it carries us reasonably well.. even then its getting close to the occasional bottom out on Bumpy roads.. The Spec sheet from Suzuki might help.. look it up for weight limits.. but I'm not too hopeful.. the bigger versions ( C 90 or the C 1`09 are much stronger in their pulling power.. Goo Luck!
