to GSX or not to GSX

Hi Suzuk owners, there is a great variety of owners here, so am hoping you can all help. wanted a Gsx for some time but was put off by the poor fueling (the report of) and by dealers who knew very little, and seemed to care very little. So here is issue, have owned many bikes, and currently own a zx14, really looking seriously at a Gsx, but am concerned I may be disappointed by fueling issue. Has anyone else owned a large capacity bike (zx14..ish) and moved to the Suzuk? Had zx10, then fz 09, currently have Z900.. great bikes but kind of leave you lacking, Zx14 has tremendous power but is also a big bike. I am in my 50's and am not looking for a lay over race bike, but still enjoy the power and the look. Anyways, look forward to some replies.

thanks in advance!

The fueling issue varies bike to bike. Mine is fine. I love it, and the ergo's are one of the bikes real strengths, but it does everything well.

fueling issues dont seem to bother me..dont feel snatch anymore you learn to ride keeping pressure on the throttle open...never getting to the point where your closing throttle fully....problem gone........others issues you ride around without realize your doing it ...bike is smooth ride all day long....enough power to keep you honest,,,,,soften the suspension bike rides great and highway speeds to top end very stable.....so i say what problems ,,all thats talked about on forum with fueling all went away after a few thousands miles.....go buy the beast youll love it.....

I have a hayabusa and the GSX, love them both. If it has a fueling issue, only some do, $200 flash and it's solved. I would buy another one in a heartbeat. I'm 50 years old and the upright position is so much better.

i had a big zzr before getting my gsxs-f, loved the zzr but as a all rounder my f is better, speed wise up to about 110 mph the zook is just about as fast but then the zzr walks away, handling in my opinion is better on the zook,as for heat my zook doesn't heat up much , no more or less then the zzr,comfort wise the zook wins hands down ,after a big spin on the zzr i was always glad to put her away for a bit but on the zook just want to keep spinning lol.i nearly bought a new zzr but bought the gsxsf instead and glad i did. And the zook feels so much lighter chuck it about so much easier. my throttle is a bit twitchy but nothing to put me off, the zzr was more smother on the throttle but i still rather the zook.

I own a ZX-10R and FZ-09. Sold the Fz-09 and bought the GSXS without a test ride. I took all slack out of the throttle cable under the tank and have no complaints about snatchiness. Super comfortable bike, and screams with power once broken in, or can cruise all day. It is not a radical hooligan bike, it is a street bike with an in-line 4 cylinder GSXR motor, and for the price can’t be beat.

If your looking for a well mannered comfortable 1000cc street bike you can spend all day on, I highly recommend this bike.

Heat? The only time heat is a problem is when I commute on the GSX-S and it doesn't do a bit of blocking of the road heat in the triple digit temperatures here. Heat from the bike? I've been riding mine since January so the full range of temperatures and no issues with heat from the bike.
