I am looking to purchase a Motorcycle for Touring small and long distances. The dealer in my area has a Suzuki C90T 2008 for sale at $3700. I sat on the bike and it felt very comfortable, easy to get on and actually felt really light. I could easily see myself on one soon. That was at the dealer, then I did some research on the C90 and C90T. There seem to have been alot of issues with the Stator on these bikes. I was wondering how big of an issue this is. The bike is already just over my budget, so I wouldn't plan on having to put any additional work on it. It does have low mileage at around 16000. My concern is that perhaps someone traded it in because of that issue and I don't want to purchase a bike that may pretty soon experience that issue. It is a very nice bike though and looks sharp. Has Suzuki ever addressed that issue before 2008 or is the Stator issue only on older C90 bikes?
Thanks for the replies, I just want to keep the bike I buy for a very long time and will take care of it, but I am not even close to being a mechanic. I think I can handle an oil change, but that may be it
