Back in 1197 I bought a new TL 1000 what a beast, Well long story made short, I tossed the RODS at 6000 miles, I tried to sue and everything else..
Suzuki ended up paying for the parts and I paid for the labor,,
80 % of all the 1997 Tl's had bad engines, A little better in 1998 as they started to detune them, and detuned them every year,, Then the SV 1000 came out...
Again i got with my inside Suzuki person, What the hell why is Suzuki producing this crap,
The word came down the pipe line that Suzuki had spent so much money making the 1000 engine and if they did not have to answer to the EPA the engine would be better, smoother, then any twin in production....:jawdrop:
Suzuki has not given up on the 1000 vee, Its just in for a big make over.
Suzuki is not just going to be sitting on the DR 650 with everyone buying
The new twin Yamaha's, The triumph 800s , BMWs twin,
He did not give me a year, but i guess its 2013

No, Jdude999, I think he had it right:



I'm expecting Suzuki will be doing something with the 10000.
I'm hoping it'll be ready before my '07 650 is toast.

Is that helmet snell approved?
Probably not, but I bet there are a few people out there that wish they were wearing that body armor the last time they went down.

Back in 1997 I bought a new TL 1000. What a beast! But 80% of all the 1997 TL's had bad engines, A little better in 1998 as they started to detune them, and detuned them every year,,

Well, long story made short, I tossed the connecting rods at 6000 miles. Suzuki would not admit fault, although I tried to sue and everything else. Suzuki ended up paying for the parts and I paid for the labor.

Then the SV 1000 came out in 2002. I spoke with the customer service rep [recently? In 2002?] I'd dealt with previously and asked "What the hell why is Suzuki producing this crap?"

His claim is that Suzuki had spent so much money making the 1000 engine and if they did not have to answer to the EPA the engine would be better, smoother, then any twin in production. [Of course, every other manufacturer must also meet EPA and European emissions requirements.]

Mr. Deep Throat opined that Suzuki has not given up on the 1000 Vee: it's just in for a big make over.

Suzuki is not just going to be sitting on the DR 650 with everyone buying
Yamaha S10's, Triumph 800s , BMW, etc.
