    That's so weird.
    Put 300 km on mine yesterday and no surging at all.

    Don't sell it!!!

    Send the TRE back for a replacement. Sounds like that is the issue....

    I have been thinking about asking the TRE supplier for another one to try so that I can figure out if it is the TRE or another problem. Your comment has made my mind up. I am going to ask right now. I'll let you know how I go.

    I really want my 109

    This may be a loaded question but - is the Bully really worth it?

    English bull terrier: I'm replying to the person who was questioning the suzuki c109rs









    Just giving a quick reply and opinion[only my own], to the person on the site about the C109rs size and heft. I've had mine now about two months and I'm 6ft. 225lbs. 32in. inseam and quite strong,with all that this bike can be very---tricky. beautiful but tricky.
    Having said that watch-out ,LOTS OF POWER,track nicely, but if in a situation these monsters want to go down, and when or if they start ,there is nothing you can do[found out the hard way already]LOVE "the beast" but she is still sitting in the garage out of fear,P.S. went down at about 1 km. per hr. and broke the bikes fall with my body, but I,m O.K. I really do care for this bike but now I,m very apprehensive about her.[as in crapped my pants-metaphorically speaking] BE CAREFUL with the c109rs This is just my experience and opinion only, thanks for reading. Yours truly English Bull Terrier

    As with any bike, the trickiest part is slow maneuvering and yes, the 109 can be a little trickier to maneuver at slow speeds, but like anything, it's something best practiced and gotten used to. The width of the bars is one of the biggest things to get used to (IMO) in tight turns because they will turn fast the tighter you turn.

    IMHO - The only way to beat any fear is to face it. Get back on it, practice in an empty parking lot and get used to how she handles at slower speeds, especially turns, U-turns, etc.

    Anyone can hop on any bike and move at faster speeds in straight lines.

    We spent the weekend before Memorial Day (Canadian May long weekend) riding some of the best twisties in Western Canada and anyone who says the 109 can't corner or is sluggish at high speed cornering has never ridden one.

    Glad to hear you're alright.

    I'll agree with ya there Don. I just got back from Arkansas and the Ozark Mtns. I had the Gman Titanium draggers throwing sparks more than once.
    One guy said it looked like I had a flame thrower mounted to the side of my bike. And he was in front of me. The big bike can corner.

    have not experienced any surge problems with mine either. I would let the dealership take a look. It's still under warranty is'nt it?
