I live in Coffs Harbour NSW and have had quite a saga with mine; 2015GSXS1000F; after years of riding, trackdays, having had gsxr's (still do, a legendary K6) and a hayabusa, no accidents till my first ride on the GSXS resulting in a broken leg when it stalled on take off in a tight turn and threw me to the ground. Problem I found and solved is extremely lean mapping between idle and 4,500 revs to pass the flipping ECU emission tests. Had a boosterplug from Denmarkk's boosterplug.com fitted, plug cost a$200, fitting $180. So please beware because without this mod it stalls, farts at low revs and it is very hard to hold a constant speed. My other gripes, putting dopey blinkers hanging off it, instead of having decent mirrors fitted with the blinkers inside as on the gsxr's. As for the tail tidy, I got one because the standard stanchion hanging off the back is too long and ridiculous; I have kept the original for resale otherwise you could have it. Now that it is sorted, it is a good bike, with one major remaining problem; the crappy rear shock, which is cheap and not cheerful. It can't be dialed down to my 70kg weight, so it might be alright if you weigh more or carry your girlfriend. An Ohlins replacement is over $1K but for slightly less you can buy a Nitro one, locally. Suzuki have made a flawed masterpiece, and if you are careful in the first thousand k's, and sort out the inherent warts, you will end up with a good bike. I am almost happy with mine now.
