Kind of a bummer when you shell out 15k on a BRAND NEW bike. Other than that, no complaints. How you like yours Roy(826)?
I like the bike a lot. Read about the CC issues early on from a UK owner on youtube so was not surprised when mine began acting up early on. I picked up my bike May 18th so I have had it a while now (4500 miles). They seem to have a hot start tapping/rattle once a few miles are on them. Mine started the noise at about 500 miles. However as it has gotten cooler outside the noise is not as often on hot starts. Suzuki to date has not answer for that either.

Thanks for the heads up. Just got 600 miles on it so will be doing the oil change etc soon. Sadly the snow will be flying soon (Northern Michigan) so will be Spring before I experience (hopefully not) the tapping/rattle.

This CC issue seems to be a "whack-a-mole" thing. Surprised Suzuki isn't all over this, and hasn't issued any service directive to dealers. Important to make sure this isn't widespread, or the model will have a black eye.
I have also had quite a few issues with the cruise control. Sometimes I can ride all day 300-500 miles with no issues and other days it might shut off several times. Bike has been to dealer for this as well as the hot start "knock" and they have nothing to say about the cruise control. With the much more bothersome knock however, they assure me that their test fleet bikes do the same thing and not to be worried. I have sent them videos of the noise and it really really bothers me! When the cruise control shuts off while riding, I usually pull in the clutch, turn of the key, turn it back on and im back in business without having to pull off of the road.
