HI all I have not signed on the dotted line yet!!

Hi All,

I have been interestingly reading all your post's on the PC5 and snatchy
throttle after test riding a gsxs1000 at Crescent motorcycles in Verwood dorset.

I have put a holding deposit on a blue F version from Robinsons in Rochdale (as it was a bloody good price 8495 for a pre reg bike with no miles on it!!) but have not pushed the button yet.

I loved riding the naked version yesterday but do concour with the snatchy throttle, although it was not too bad on the demo bike.

I usually ride a cbf1000, so the gsxs was a rocketship compared to that at the
top end, the missus obviously did not like the look of the pillion seat but I am keeping the cbf for two up touring duties as it is so comfortable, the suzuki is a treat for me, as it's my birthday on the 5th!!

From what I have gleaned a PC5 is a must purchase, so i think i will get one
fitted from new, to sort out the throttle snatch.

I will be taking the bike to John Barnes motorcycle services in warmwell, as he is a suzuki specialist (has a K5 race bike and K7 gsxr 600 which he also races) who can reprogramme ecu's if necessary.

All in all looking forward to getting my new steed in the near future!!!

happy daze

I thought I got a deal at 9400 for my F, 8500 OTR for an F is a steal.... buy it.... BUY IT NOW!!

On your way down from Rochdale, pop in to Hilltop Motorcycles hilltop motorcycles 01455 848522 and get Geoff to remap it and the throttle issues will be a thing of the past ;-)

Congratulations on taking the plunge, I've been trying to decide on buying one myself, you obviously didn't find any catches.

the bike is glorious in so many ways. Once you tighten the throttle, you will love it that much more. And once you dial in the suspension for your weight, it rides like a fucking dream !

thanks for replies guys

Hi All thanks for all the replys, i have just got to sort out the
paperwork next week and hopefully get it delivered down to dorset
by the weekend. I am not to popular with the missus, as she doesn't
understand why the cbf1000 is not good enough, but we all know it's just
an all rounder, but don't get me wrong a very capable bike with a buttery
smooth throttle!!!. Anyway I will be keeping that so I can go out with the
missus on the weekend and use the gsx for commutting and scratching
around dorset.

Welcome, enjoy it when it arrives, I have to concur with Martin, an ECU remap will sort out any throttle issues
