thats an easy one. You just buy the little bottle of blinker fluid concentrate at auto-zone. just remember, 2:1 water to blinker fluid ratio.
you NEVER wanna mix your blinker fluid wrong!

youd be throwing your money down the drain if you bought that part OEM. just convert from the flux capicitor to the Mr. Fusion. It runs on garbage.

You should also try and work something out before being belligerent, (that means angry and aggressive), before demanding to see people. I am not saying that the dealerships are ALWAYS good people, but the more you tell them, the harder it is for them to screw you. Maybe things didn't get done because you and the management didn't understand each other.

Second, you could only go 95, poor baby. Take it to the track or something man. That is too fast to be going on the streets, period. It's riding like that, that makes police and cagers hate us. You're going to get yourself or someone else hurt or killed. I suggest you take an MSF course or maybe a big dose of common sense. We all get a wild hair every now and then, but there is a fine line between having a good time and endangering people's lives.

Third, the solution for you bike is prolly something simple like throttle bodies, a malfunction in the ECU, an 02 (oxygen) valve, or some type of EXUP-type device/servo motor that regulates your air/fuel mixture. These things break sometimes, or are defective, there is no need to get pissy about it. Just tell the dealer your problem the best you can, and solve it the best you can. If that doesn't work try again.

Sorry if I beat a dead horse a little bit guys and gals, but I think this guy needed it. Ok, rant over now.

I for one ascertain that this audience is a exceedingly dificult and terse towards those less fortunate in ascertaining a competent understanding of the intracacies of their own motorcycle's technical design and proper function.

Yep, they tried to screw him. Best he take that Platinum Club Warranty and shove it in their secondary butterfly assembly. Although, shouldn't that only affect midrange performance, such as would be required under 95mph?

Roasted or fried?

wow that sucks, pull the code, probably a c28...i think, i cant remember
thats the stva system; secondary throttle valve assembly, just like was stated above it controls your secondaries.
basically when those go out your bike goes into limp mode and you should be popping and FI light.
this happend to my 04 1000, its an easy fix with a motor swap, or just a whole throttle body swap.
btw, your 600 doesn't have any exhaust flapper valve bullshit, that never even existed on 600/750s in the 04-05 years, so i dunno who told you that , i have had 3 of those bikes and know every inch of them

and for those that are talking about not going over 95, your a rare number, because most of the poeple i see out riding from and not from this site are breaking the law somehow on the street...and speeding is the smallest problem

And you're the small group of riders that I am talking about. Those that find it necessary to ride 115 everywhere. I see too many of you guys on the pavement when my fire station rolls out to a call. Slow down and calm down a little bit guys, it could save your life! And as far as the "exhaust flapper", I was just using it as an example of things that could be wrong. I didn't claim to be a mechanic or a Suzuki owner, just presenting possibilities of things that could be wrong. And FYI, motor swaps are not "easy" operations.

And, you'd be surprised of how many people on this forum are conservative riders, who like to have fun and can do it inside the law. So watch what you say before you go cussing and flaming people up.

i didn't cuss of flame, i was just stating...yes your right there is a lot of people that follow the law on the streets, im not going to lie im def. no angel on the street, but i when there is lights in the way i move and let them do their job.

as for motor swaps, after you do one, they dont take much longer than a few hours turn key.

as for jay, goodluck with choosing better shops, we all live and learn, you have a k5 gsxr you should go to gixxer.com they have a lot of valuable archives up there for things on your bike that could help you a lot!
