    I always value Chris' opinion. He seems like the bloke down the street you'd like to ride with and drink a beer with. He also happens to be blisteringly fast yet able to describe how a bike feels without just quoting specs.

    Don't know if its been mentioned in this thread but I work on a buddies F model with the lower fairings and it is absolutely the most ignorant bike to change the oil filter on that I've ever seen.The way the fairing is mounted and has to be moved to access the filter is just plain stupid.

    The fairing on the F does not need to be moved to replace the filter, assuming you have a tool that can unscrew it from the front. It's possible to maneuver the filter around the pipes and get it out and get the new one in without the fairing undone. But you have to let the bike cool down so you can touch the pipes.

    I want to see someone do it. I can get it loose with the tool but then have to get it off before unscrewing the filter or it hits the pipes before its all the way unscrewed. Thats the easy part .Getting the filter out of the way without dumping oil everywhere is next then the last part of the trifuckta is getting the new filter in place and actually starting it on the threads. Just plain fuckin stupid on Suzuki to make it that difficult .

    Cover your pipes with aluminum foil to minimize the mess, doesn’t sound anymore difficult than any other faired bike.

    I’ve owned plenty of bikes plus 3 gsxr1000s. The gsx-s1000f is the worst bike I’ve ever owned when it comes to changing the oil, or taking the panels off.

    Good to know but I think most here aren’t to concerned as the bike of interest is the 2022 naked.

    I hope they give the 1000t a bigger fuel tank if it's supposed to be "touring oriented".

    Given they changed the F to a T, I speculate the bike will be more than just a faired version, but will actually have touring-oriented features. Give me a set of integrated side cases that clip on without requiring ugly racks, and I will almost certainly trade in my F for it.

    Why did it take them so long to get with the program?

    Glad to see N1k getting some direct competition.

    They up the tank to
    5 gallons on the new S1000 which is .5 more than before and equal to N1K, so I think that will be sufficient without making the wet weight higher than need be. Should easily go 200 miles without panic if riding at reasonable levels, which could be difficult around town, but not when touring.

    I get about 180 miles on my F when not riding too hard, so that sounds reasonable. If anyone needs more range than that he'll have to carry a rotopax.

    Hope they make it so it can have a center stand.

    Maybe cruise control also as they add TBW to the S model?

    950 model? Interesting. US might not even get that or it take gsx s750 spot.
