Cool Introduction

Hi GW250 fans,

I am Al_jak from Mauritius island.
I owned my GW250 since March 2015 and I commuted around 36 000 KM and it still is as fun as the first ride .
I have changed stock chain at about 15 000 KM due to lack of maintenance, rear tires(Michelin Pilot Street Radial) at about 30 000 KM (I am pretty skinny ).
I will soon order the front Michelin Pilot Street Radial as the size(110/80-17 57H) was not available at the local Michelin distributor.
They had the 110/70-17 57H.
I had an electric issue after changing air filter by myself, the bike was not starting and if ever the engine started the RPM would go very high(5000 rpm) without engaging the throttle.
Fortunately when this happens I was at the local Suzuki dealer buying spare parts(spark plugs), they fixed the issue.
I just changed fuel filter the original one was clogged(see below) and was causing my bike to stall when arriving to a stop whenever the fuel level was low.
I will continue monitoring and see if the new fuel filter fixes this issue.

Regards,
Al_jak.

Welcome to the forum! what part is that in your pictures? I'm not familiar with motorcycle internals since servicing is done by my dealer.

Thanks guys.
Actually the service was done by my local Suzuki dealer, and the part in the pictures is the old fuel pump filter which was found inside the fuel tank.
After two weeks now the problem seems to have disappeared.

Glad to hear that because you have been putting on a lot of mileage so far, probably the most this forum has seen so far and maybe the GW community overall. From what I noticed most use these for regular short commutes to work, errands, etc.

Do you see yourself sticking with the GW for a long time or switching eventually?

Oh that's a disturbing amount of gunk it caught, guessing some particles was getting through the filter.

Hi OpenThrottle,

I got an old(2009) Honda CB600F with 44 000 KM on the ODO April last but nothing compares to the comfort of the ZUMA
I am keeping both bikes even though my friend do not understand my decission haha..
The Honda has a lot of power with uniform and smooth acceleration and very sporty/stiff suspension which is good for naked sport bike.
I use the ZUMA for commuting and the Honda for some speed action from time to time
ZUMA Mileage -->> 55 000KM, there was a little issue with handle bar wobbles I change the wheel bearing and it was gone..

Regards..
