  1. New M50 owner - my two cents

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Which headlight upgrade are people recommending? Silverstar H4ST? PIAA Extreme Plus?
  2. Normal valve noise?

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I rode my M50 without a helmet on for the first time a few days ago (very rare for me), and I could REALLY hear the valves. Can't hear them in a full-fac helmet. It sounds like a typewriter. I just had my valves checked 2 weeks ago, so I would say it's normal.
  3. Sold her

    Skip the M90 and head straight to the M109R.
  4. mileage question

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I haven't tested by emptying the tank, but I fill up when I have 1 bar left on the gauge, which is always around 3 to 3.2 gallons and around 155-160 miles. By my calculations, I'm getting about 50 mpg. This is mostly suburb/country with very little freeway. So I'd say don't go much further than...
  5. Know of a great place to buy cheap parts???

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    It really depends what you're looking for. Some places are cheaper than other. E-bay is always a good place to start.
  6. Triple Whammy run-turn-brake question

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    :cool: Thanks! I know it's not accurate, but it makes sense to people that don't understand electrical theory. Kinda like the water faucet explanation that's so common. I could go into load impedance and voltage drop, but does this thread really need to be that long? :)
  7. Lifted my M back up today

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Clockwise roundabout. Probably doesn't help that you're driving on the wrong side of the road. ;):mrgreen:
  8. Triple Whammy run-turn-brake question

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    A regular bulb takes more power to run than an LED, and the circuit expects a certain amount of power to be available at the end of the circuit compared to the beginning. Everything you put in the circuit puts 'load' on the circuit. When you replace a regular bulb with an LED, the LED takes less...
  9. Doesn't anyone ride?

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I want to bring up an interesting thought I had today about the first bike with 748 miles on it. How many of you think that guy hasn't even done the 600 mile service? Can you imagine what that oil is like sitting in the pan for 4 years? I'm a firm believer that if you're not riding your bike...
  10. Doesn't anyone ride?

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    After showing some friends my M50, one of them has decided he needs to get another bike. We were looking through Craiglist, and I was showing him some used M50's, and I just can't believe that people don't ride their bikes. This calls for some examples... Here's a 2006 with 748 miles: SUZUKI...
  11. 2 into 1 exhaust for the M50?

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Hard-Krome Sideburner is pretty sweet: Hard-Krome 2 into 1 SideBurner for SuzukiC50 Boulevard 2005-2009 It says it's for the C50, but it's obviously installed on an M50.
  12. Harley vs Harley

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Lol, no Bob, that's obviously not what I said. Read my previous posts if you need clarification. No need to attack a straw man. :roll: Heck, yeah. I love the Hammer S.
  13. Harley vs Harley

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I think if you follow the entire conversation, you'll see exactly why I said this. A simple miss-shift could easily make you lose a second. Trust me, I have more runs down the 1320 than I can count in/on multiple types of vehicles. I remember racing for 3rd place at National Trails at an...
  14. Harley vs Harley

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Popular Mechanics did a comparion and found the M50 did 14.5: Best Cruiser Motorcycle - Comparison of Cruiser Motorcycles - Popular Mechanics Which would make the Sportster 1200 1.2 seconds faster. This advantage could easily be lost by lack of driver skill and experience.
  15. Harley vs Harley

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Edit: I like the Roadhouse pipes. Lightning duals, right? Can you make any comparison to how loud they are, whether they're baffled or not, and anything else about them? I'm looking at pipes for next spring, just trying to do some research.
  16. Harley vs Harley

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    My riding buddy also has a sportster, and he always remarks about how much bigger my bike is, and how many more features it has like a fuel gauge, forward controls, twice as big tank, and helmet lock. I think my bike is a bit faster than his 1200 as well, but we haven't done any 'testing' to...

  18. Riding jeans; what do you wear?

    Motorcycle-Journal Haberdashery: Gear and Helmets
    Tourmaster/Cortech has a variety of colors and styles that look like regular jeans for $99: Cortech - DSX Denim Pants Iron Pony has these River Road pants on sale for $40. No removable armor, but hey it's $40: River Road - Rivet Jeans @ Iron Pony
  19. Cult following here but a pain in th arse to sell.

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Same, though a standard. Something small and nimble like a Gladius or ER6n.
  20. How bad did you want your bike

    This was in April 2008, but yeah.
