    questions about c50 longevity

    I just got an 09 c50,20,000 miles on it.My 07 c50 I owned several years ago I didn't keep long enough to know some of the bike weaknesses.I traded it for a valkyrie.But now I have come full circle.I no longer tour, but do ride 200 miles in a day a few times a month.But I am on 2 other suzuki forums.I just learned the c50 has weak cam chain tensioners, that I can expect the cam chains to come flying off at or before 40,000 miles, thereby trashing the motor.If I had known, I would not have bought it.But after owning the vulcan 900 and the yamaha 950, the suzuki fits me ergonomically perfectly.And the stock seat is comfortable which is very rare on any bike.Are people here aware of the problems with the motors I just described?

    I bought my 2015 C50T back on Labor day weekend 2015...I also would like to know more about this issue and is it for just the 2009 or all years?
