Here, let me reply...again. It's on all GSX-R 96 and higher, perhaps further back. Not just a FI shut off, it's an ignitinon shut off if memory serves me right.

RC-51s have them too. I don't know of any specific problems but I have read of people disabling them just in case.

I am not 100 percent sure, but I would be willing to bet some money on it The 96 and 97 were very similiar, and mechanically, the same.

Just gixxers?

Does that go for just the GSXR series or does that include the TL's? I had never heard of that before.

'98 TLS

I would guess the TL's also. It is not near a problem as this guy would lead you to believe, I don't "think". Don't take my word for it, but I have not personally heard of anyone having this problem. It is scary, to think if your bike wagged in a turn, and threw the little metal slider up onto the contact, or in hard lean it hit it. *shrug*

Gee whiz, yet another serious problem with Suzukis. Why do you guys buy those things anyway? Get yourselves some Hondas, and ride.

This thing has been known about for years. I wouldn't doubt that Honda's have a tip over shut off, dunno though.

And as for the Honda thing, I have a 2000 Eclipse paid off, make pretty good money, but since I had just bought the Eclipse, nobody would finance me. I had $5,000 to put down on a 2000 929, and those bastards wouldn't finance me for 4 grand and change.

Oh well, the gixxer is paid in full, so it will become the track bike, and I can get back on a Honda

Rob, my 929 has a tip over shut off, and I am sure that most other Hondas do as well, but don't quote me on that. I just like to yank Suzuki owners' chains now and again. Not that I really think Suzukis are altogether bad bikes (they are obviously not), it is just that with all the reliability problems they have been having of late, the chain yanking opportunities seem to pop up on a regular basis.
