Default re: The Suzuki Gixxer 150cc

Suzuki has introduced two new dual-tone colour schemes for the Gixxer. The motorcycle will now also be available in Metallic Triton Blue with Pearl Mirage White (BAQ) and Candy Antares Red with Glass Sparkle Black (APS). Suzuki claims that these schemes have been inspired by its traditional racing colours.

The side frames of the bike will be colour-coordinated with its new dual-tone schemes and it gets clear lens turn indicators.

The Gixxer is priced at Rs. 77,166. (ex-showroom, Delhi).

It would be great if you folks can pitch in and offer your suggestion on the following problem.

My Gixxer has now completed around 16/17k km in 18 months of ownership.

Of late the rear end of the bike has started swaying badly and I have to slow down to almost walking pace to stop this movement. Also I believe that the chain sprocket has gone bust as it makes a racket.

I had taken it to the authorized service Centre to rectify the swaying issue and the advisor said that there might be a problem with the chain sprocket and he asked me to replace it. I was not convinced on how replacing the chain sprocket would solve the swaying issue. I left the place thanking him for his services.

Today, rear wheel got punctured and while getting it fixed I noticed that there were cracks on the side walls and air was leaking from there. I asked the MRF guy for warranty and he said that the tyre is out of warranty.

Casually I told him about the swaying problem and he offered to check it. He removed the rear tyre and checked for play in the swing arm. To my horror the swing arm apart from the up and down movement, also went from side to side.

The MRF guy told me that this could be the cause for swaying and he asked me to take it to the service centre to replace the swing arm bush (stay bush??). He also added that this could be one of reasons for the tyre walls and chain sprocket to get damaged.

As usual, the A.S.S guys are not solving the problem and they are keen on replacing the chain sprocket. Any advice on this? Also suggest any knowledgeable A.S.S in Chennai.

I am facing an issue with my Gixxer. The box where air filter is placed has opened up from one of the edge. This edge faces the rear mud guard. Looks like there was some sort of sealing in the plastic box which has worn out. Due to this lot of dust is entering the box where air filter is placed.
Has anyone else faced this issue? As per the ASS they told that similar issue was seen is some more bikes and as this is not a damage, can be replaced under warranty. But my bike has crossed warranty period so I will have to pay for it. Cost is about 1k-1.2k.
As of now I have sealed the place with 3M tape. But will have to soon can it fixed.

In an appalling service blunder the service center had used a cheap screw instead of the recommended bolt.

Resulted in screw and the associated spring to come out. They got crushed and sheared the clutch causing complete clutch damage and possible damage to the engine.

The screw and bolt, the broken spring and the damaged clutch

Gixxer has several known issues...my gixxer had one of those.

Petrol level guage has a short life. The wires used in the guage are so flimsy they ought to get snapped sooner than later.

The new one costs ₹286. Labor charges for dismantling the fuel tank fixing the Guage and re fixing the tank ₹100. Time wasted two hours.

The fuel guage...

I completely forgot to update this thread. Eventually after a long drawn battle with A.S.S, Suzuki and MRF, I finally managed to get the swing arm replaced under warranty. However, I had to pay for the new rear tyre.

The A.S.S made a big fuss about replacing the part under warranty. A.S.S was hell bent on blaming the tyre for the swaying issue and MRF guys blamed it on the bike. MRF went to an extent of making some tests and verbally gave a confirmation to Suzuki that the fault was on the bike. But for some reason MRF refused to give that in writing and rather just mentioned that there was no fault with the tyre.

Despite all this, A.S.S was reluctant to get the faulty part changed and I had go back and forth with A.S.S and Suzuki service team to get the issue sorted. Finally they agreed to change the swing arm and cover it under warranty.

Now, despite regular servicing at A.S.S, the piston ring got fried and the entire engine needed to be rebuilt. Again, warranty covered most of the parts. Fortunately I had 5 year warranty and gave the bike for service at A.S.S. Otherwise I would have had to shell out for the rebuild.

I was always under the impression that Japs were reliable but after my experience with Yamaha and Suzuki, I feel otherwise. Both these brands are marred with shoddy workmanship and need good technicians to sustain their business. I am looking to buy a scooter for my dad and we have straight away rejected the Access owing the reason mentioned above.

Thanks to your perseverence you got Suzuki honor their commitment. It's shocking to see how the Japanese companies do not bring their core working ethos along with the machinery and technology to India.

For the sake of few hundreds or thousands in service they will lose crores in goodwill, and branding. Your decision on access is proof enough.
