I just purchased a AN650A ,2011 model with 22000 Km.When the engine / transmission is not warmed up the gears are smooth up and down ( on Auto ) but after 2 > 3 minutes when slowing down it is not smooth any more. Rough ( on slowing down only ) and the slowing down is not nice. Changed the transmission oil 2 X Castrol 10w40. 15W40 .( Semi ) Does someone knows is that normal, due to the braking power of the engine when I turn the throttle down ? I'm scared to take it to a dealer !!! $. Norman ,QLD
Sorry Norman, cannot answer you properly, due to the fact I'm not a bike mechanic, should be an easy fix, just ask around maybe to a suzuki bike mechanic?
Thanks anyway. I have visit a lot of forums ( manly US ). One states : "The only thing that takes time to get used to the downshift can come on swiftly and takes time to adjust."I think after 2012 they have changed something.
I went on the Suzuki website and they are not offering the 650 any more. Only till 400 cc. Norman
riding my 650cc Bergman the other morning to work which I love to bits with a passion the bike just had no transmission , the engine was fine and everything worked but no drive to the rear wheel I have been trying to get to the bottom of what could it be but all the people I have contacted want me to take it in which means trailers and time off work as I work long shift work I just want options but don't want to hear the transmission cvt band has snapped please please can anybody give me some pointers as to where to look first?
I have no idea what the problem might be. How many kilometres has it done? I haven't heard of this problem of snapped drive , but I'd be phoning a mechanic ( Suzuki) to enquire.
I would also be wishing that it just might be electrical ,( computer) and not mechanical as such.
It reminds me of the feeling I get when I have had accidentally hit the kill button ,and the bike won't start.
One way or the other ,it will have to be fixed. Let me know how you get on. I've only done 4,000 ks on mine. It feels a lot more ( in a good way ).
hi Gazza, the bike has done around 60,000kms and never missed a beat I will pursue as you say a Suzuki mechanic who has worked on Bergman's , thanks for your thoughts will let you know how I get on as I have another week on nightshift and work away from home so getting back to my baby will have to wait.
