Hi
In May 2011 I purch. a Boulevard VLR1800 T. Appart from accelerating, decelerating or idling the bike is serging and it is impossible to ride it steady. First, 2 and 3 gear is more pronounced due to gearing. I have only done 450 km and I don't enjoy riding it anymore. It will not hold the revs steady and it feels like fuel starvation or ignition problems. The dealer workshop tells me it is a caracteristic of a big cube bike and I quote " The serge at low revs consistant with product."
It happens at midrange too. Impossible to ride at almost any speeds below 80 kmh. I have ridden harleys and Intruder 1400, no such problem. If that problem can't be fixed I don't won't to keep the bike. Is this a problem with other Boulevards too?
Anybody with an answere?
Thanks
Sundisig

IF the bike is still 100% stock, mechanically, and is still under warranty, I strongly suggest that you contact the help number in your owner's manual or warranty booklet for Suzuki warranty claim help.

AND while you are fighting that out, check to see if your area has any kind of lemon laws for motorcycles.

I think the shop is feeding you a line of crap, plain and simple.

P.S. There probably are better forums for Suzuki products. This one might be a good place to start:
