how got that rusty
OK so I think you should go back and read the threads about this a little closer.I bought a brand new C50.
That's definetly interesting to read. I've read both versions now, on the one hand I've heard that issue affects all of the C50/M50 across every year, on the other hand I've read that it only affects the earlyer M50's and somwhere in 2008 oder 2009 the M50 got overhauled and Suzuki redesigned hundred's of parts - therefore newer ones aren't affected. I can't recall where I've read the second statement of the redesigned parts, possibly right here. Now, if I take a look online in the parts catalogue, my 2015 C50 is essentially a K6 Model, built since 2007 - so possibly still affected? Now let's assume my new C50 is not affected, should I still apply liquid gasket to the metal gasket to seal out moisture?OK so I think you should go back and read the threads about this a little closer. IIRC, this was a factory error and it only affected two or three model years.....or less. You are definitely being a bit paranoid about this with a brand new machine. Sometimes "fixing" things that don't need to be fixed is a BAD idea.
Man some techs think they know everything. Glad you weren't hurt and got to the side of the road safely! Go back and give that guy a peice of your mind.2008 with 52,000 km and mine just went. Almost no time riding in wet conditions. Lots of rust dust when disassembled and most of the splines gone much like the photos posted early on. I had asked the dealer to check this during a tire change a few years back and they said don't believe everything you read on the internet. I wish I had been more adamant.
Loss of power to the drive and the metal in the dishwasher noise. Coasted to the side of the road.
Cool, let us know how it goes.Thanks for the comment paqman. I was lucky I was on a quite backroad with no traffic...could be different outcome if this happened on a busy fast highway.
I have the receipt that shows I had asked for this issue to be checked. I will be going to the dealer today to order parts and see if they will help with the cost.
