My 2011 TU250X



This is my fourth motorcycle and my favorite so far. Just can't say enough good things about it. It brings a smile to my face on every ride.

the 2011 looks good in any of the non-suzuki pictures i see it in. incredible. did you remove the knee pads or did it not come with any?

-----

where on earth is the headlight relay? it's a part of, and the only thing inside of "fuse box 1" says the wiring diagram, but the manual doesn't tell you where to find it. i've looked all over the place. it's not in the headlight bucket as far as i can tell, and it doesn't appear to be under the battery cover. i checked under the seat and lifted the tank too! nothing

Why is it that everyone's TU looks so much better than mine? Maybe I should wash and lube it once in awhile.

No need for the expressway

Big Canoe,
I can't imagine using the TU for expressway travel. Where I live, it is about a 75 mile drive on two lane highway to the the nearest expressway. We are surrounded by lightly traveled, curvy two lane roads like this:



Eastern WA may not have all the cool stuff that Western WA and Seattle enjoy, but we have plenty of room and usually (not this spring) dry weather.

The 2011 doesn't come with any knee pads. Just the black "tank protectors" that are shaped to look like knee pads. I've thought of removing them and placing some authentic knee pads, but the stock tank protectors have a rather nice contrasting pinstripe on them.

The headlight fuse is in fuse box 1, with the clear cover in front of the battery.
10 amp fuse.
There is no relay.

Very pretty! I plan to avoid the interstate! Thank goodness google maps has a button "avoid highway" :)

The owners manual says it's a 10 amp fuse mounted on the left side of the frame The picture shows it just behind the horn.
