I just jumped on one of the deals for the 2014 Khaki models here in SD. So far I am really happy, no chudder, no knock but coming up on my first oil change this weekend hoping I'm one of the lucky ones.

I'm also going to get one of the tall Suzuki seats, I'm 6'3" so it is always an issue no matter what bike I have. I have found the seats to order but don't know the part number for the seat with the Khaki trim, has anyone ordered one or know the correct part number?

Congrats on the new ride!
Thanks, I'm really liking it, so far so good. Stepping up from a 06 Wee that has been really good to me. Now I need to thin the heard in the garage and find a good home for her.

Hi Harv..
I too have the baby poo brown V2...fastest colour, don't you know..
I am about 6'2".
I ended up getting the tall seat.
It felt a bit weird at first, but it has settled in.
Is it as comfy as a Russel Day Long, probably not, but for about $260 Canuck, it was a good deal and for me better than the standard seat.
If I had to do it again, I would.

Oh, BTW, you will likely develop a bit of a knock.
Put your earplugs in and ignore it.

There is a thread on it...
Some say crankshaft end play..
Some say clutch.
Mine goes away whe I pull in the clutch a bit, but others will swear it is not the clutch.
I don't really care as the bike performs well and I wear plugs.
