Re: F/S 2008 Suzuki B King

These are amazing bikes, & this is the cleanest & best farkled 1 I've ever seen.

I hope someone buys it before I have to travel 2 blocks & buy it myself.

Awesome bike, looks like it needs nothing except a lawyer on retainer.

Hoping somebody buys this before temptation overcomes me. I'm a weak man.

How can you have a name like that and not own this bike?

Re: F/S 2008 Suzuki B King

When the B-King first came out I hated the styling, but as with most things new and innovative, they tend to grow on you with the passage of time. I've seen a couple of these out in the wild and they are so cool looking to me now. And that motor.......

Re: F/S 2008 Suzuki B King

This is another one of those "if I didn't love my Tiger so much I'd just have to have it" bikes. Nice comfortable ride with a big block!! GLWS!

Re: F/S 2008 Suzuki B King

And this one has already had the obscene tail pipes replaced with something more sexy.

That is the first thing to do these bikes. The factory exhaust was the most awful feature of these bikes, & IMHO, could be the sole reason they didn't sell very well for that 1 year they imported them. They are simply the most hideous looking tail pipes in modern motorcycling history.

The pipes Mark has on there now are perfect. Very clean looking, tucked up under the tail nice & perfect, & they sound great also.

Re: F/S 2008 Suzuki B King

I agree with nearly everything you said, but the B-King pipes pull a close second to the Z1000 pipes. But yea, stock are hideous, and it's a good thing that the aftermarket cleans that mistake up so well, as this one has been.

Re: F/S 2008 Suzuki B King

Never knew why the B-King never took off in a way the ZRX did. Its a well sorted machine that is very capable. When I had mine, I had bought a few different windscreens to try. The A and B modes worked really well. Mine already had Yosh pipes on it too and loved it. Engine was always precise and controllable. Took a few trips on it.
