if it is, then i can use that one, or drill another one like suggested by fixfords, wonder why they did not include one on the bike.
That is a hole for a rim lock and I just add another one opposite of it. Suzuki does not add one to keep the cost down, and most people will not miss it. I like using two, as I set the pressure low on a regular basis for the type of riding I do.
Definitely not necessary for fire roads and light trail riding. In fact as mentioned if you don't go below 15-20 psi, you really don't need a rim lock.
