New Suzuki motorcycle sales are down, WAY DOWN. Most Suzuki dealers are selling less than half of the volume they were five years ago. The auto business was the tip of the spear, but the whole company is in pretty big trouble. The motorcycle division is way too dependent on product categories in decline (sportbikes, metric cruisers, and dirt playbikes) and the rest of their line is very stale and has miserably thin margins. They need new product badly.

Yamaha isn't doing much better. We'll probably lose one of the Big Four in the North American market in the next five years or so.

YES it is but the top one gives a much better feeling of the intensity of competition with the red dust and altogether better idea about the riders enjoyment.

The second image has very different qualities and looks more like a "very nice" Sunday ride

But that's just MHO

We love our Kizashi! It handles and rides extremely well. My wife loves it more than her previous Mazda, and Saabs.

no i have had both and will take a suzuki over a honda any day!

honda makes good products , just not for me.

after 2 miles on gravel stage the honda begs for mercy but the suzuki said, that all you got

how many honda cars have you seen in the dakar or the wrc?

Why would I waste good money on a POS suzysuckme CAR when they are known for inferior build quality and the worst known service ever.


Ughhh, is there any wonder they are dropping the whole car business? Because even they know they suck!


I do own a DRZ and love it. Here's to hoping the motorcycle side never goes away.



Oh, and Honda had nothing to do in the conversation......................

Tire testing...

I am taking this Motoz Tractionator I/T for a rough test on tomorrow's ride ~125 miles of B level terrains. 2 Tracks & deep sand washes are the dominant factor. Oh i feel sorry for who's gonna tail gate me . I hope they're wearing a good chest protestor.


I'll let u know guys how it works and if it worth the $$$.

flooded drz400

I have a mostly stock 04 drz400s and yesterday i left the petcock on for just long enough to flood the engine. today i took the carb off and lifted the front end up enough to let all the gas drain out. checked the carb and it all still seems clean, nothing blocking the jets. put it all back together and it cranks over and starts right up. then turned the fuel off to let it go dry and to make sure it used up any leftover gas in the engine or carb. after it died i turned the fuel back on and took it for a quick test ride and i only made it 4 blocks before it just stalled out on me at a stop sign and wouldnt start up again.

Any ideas on what to try next?
also i noticed the RPM's were running higher than usual concidering the engine was still cold when it started.
