Default What makes it so Special?

I just bought a 2008 Suzuki M50 "Special Edition" and Im wondering what makes it different form a regular m50, other than the 2 tone paint. I notice also my bike has a button called "pass" on the left handle, does anyone know what this is for - I know its kind of self explanatory but Im wondering what exactly this button does. Its not listed in the users manual that I have.

Thanks all and hope for warmer weather

The pass button is for when you're on the highway. It activates the high beam when pulled in. You use it and flash the slow drivers in the left hand lane that should pull over. You can also use it to flash others that cops are up ahead. Let me see. Did I cover it? Don't know about the "Special Edition". What about looking it up on the internet?

I wouldn't worry about using the Pass button on an M50 unless you're cruising around a retirement village.

It's faster than you think it is, once drag raced a buddy with this bike. He was on a punched out Harley 1200cc and he got smoked. We traded and I got smoked.

There is nothing special about the special edition other than paint. The pass button is best used when wiring your saftey clutch switch into it for theft prevention. Also a temporary high beam is it's normal use.

It's a great trick, even the guys at my shop couldn't start it, even with the key.

Do you just wire it in so it has to be held with the start? good idea, but Ive never heard of a bike getting stolen arround here, just 4 wheelers & dirtbikes, tractors
