Hi, is anyone having trouble with using cruise control once travelling 60mph, mine blinks twice and goes off, works fine if I switch on before leaving home but if I try for the first time that day whilst at that speed it doesn’t work?

Weird. What's unique about 60 mph? Does this not happen at other speeds? Why not just turn on CC when you start bike and leave activated, setting speed as needed?

Also...does the GT's cruise control disengage with brake use, clutch use and/or throttle closing?

Not just 60, 50 and 70……… I can just turn on yes but shouldn’t have to really….. disengages with all three mentioned. I do love the bike but the CC thing is really grinding me, it’s not something you should be thinking of when starting up the bike as you don’t plan your day/ journey around using the CC

Sounds like a warranty issue. Time to call the dealer? They should be able to hook up to a diagnostic program, find the fault and fix it.

On my 2020 Yamaha Tracer 900 GT which has factory CC there was a recall recently for the CC light blinking. The problem was a faulty front brake light switch and it was confusing the system somehow. Mine never had the issue but I did have the switch replaced under the recall. Maybe the same thing is happening or similar on the Suzuki system.

By reporting the fault to the dealer, this problem should get input to Suzuki, and the sooner the better, so Suzuki can issue a model-wide fix if the fault is in the software or hardware.

Probably not relevant, but are you doing anything else when the CC disengages, such as pulling clutch, touching brake lever, etc.? Weird that it only happens when you engage CC while at speed. Wish I had the owner manual to see how Suzuki's CC works, vs my BMW's.

Also ensure you're not rolling forward on the throttle. Apparently rolling forward on the throttle disengages the cruise control. It's a function that's supposed to remove the need to touch the front brake to disengage CC. I don't know exactly how that works; I've only read/heard it. I presume it must have a position that's further forward than the normal spring return throttle-off position.

That's how CC works on my BMW RR...cruise control can be disengaged by rolling off throttle to the stop, pulling the clutch or using the brakes.

Just wondering if you have checked the wiring connection points as they may not be pushed correctly into the connection? I am no expert other than that it sounds like you may need to have a diagnostics done as Bikemaddan suggested or a software update.

hmm I ran across this issue on a youtube video yesterday. I hope I do not get one with this issue. The CC on my 2020 Yamaha Tracer works darn good and very reliable plus easy to use.

Couldn't see any comments section. Also, I'm a 1000 RR owner...what adjustability are you talking about regarding QS? My RR is on all the time.
You have to watch it on the youtube channel to read the comments.

Wrong RR mine is a Suzuki GSX-R1000R in my avatar commonly referred to in Gixxer land as the RR over the regular R model. The RRs have better suspension, braided brake lines and a few other things which separate them from the regular base R bikes. It has a section under the QS settings menu to set it on 1 being lightest pressure applied or 2 being standard pressure applied or simply off. It works very well either way imo. It has the auto blipper also which works up or down no clutch required.

Got it. Love the auto blip on my BMW RR.
