I have had no problems whatsoever. Vibe free bars at speed, and my gas mileage has been fantastic during tours with my girlfriend riding her FZ6 with me. At speeds averaging 70 or under, I get easily over 45 mpg. I'm making my own lowering links, just to lower the bike maybe an inch. I have OES frame sliders and an Ermax windscreen. Excellent stuff. Took a 1 inch hole saw and an extension and drilled out the pipes, sounds much better with no adverse effects. New pipes would be nice, like the ones from Zard, Bodis, or Blue Flame, (I think the 2 Bros stick out too far) but I just don't have the money to justify such an expense right now. Brock's makes an excellent system, but it's pretty loud. I DID install the loudest motorcycle horn known to man though, by Stebel. Scares the hell out of anything alive. Lovin this bike so far. Just watch for the rear tire losin traction suddenly when you're leaned over and on the throttle. I hate these tires.

I have been thinking of trading my bike in on a B King but I'm still undecided???

My Suzuki dealership said earlier model Gsxr 1000 lowering links will fit the B King.

Can you post pics of your beast?

Not discontinued

It's not discontinued in the US, just not being sold there for 09 because there are still alot of 08 models in dealerships. They sold really well world wide, so much so that there are waiting lists in some countries. The US will eventually catch up with the rest of the world. Always just a little bit behind across the board when it comes to acceptance of innovation.

Does anyone know if integrated tail lights for a busa will fit the BKing?
I see them on eBay and wanted to know for sure?

No they won't. The only thing the bikes share is an engine and I believe wheels. Bodywork/ non-universal lights etc would have to be bking specific.
