Suzuki Boulevard M109R

Boulevard M109R: First impression


The R suffix in the biggest Boulevard’s designation, that little headlight fairing, and the seat cowl all hint at sportbike thinking, but the engine is where the advanced sportbike technology actually shows up.

Most impressive is the power on tap with the slightest twist of the right wrist ... Perhaps the next most impressive feature of the 109 is the absence of vibration.
The injection system has an idle speed control feature that allows it to warm up smoothly and idle smoothly under varying conditions.

The pistons are a 4.4 inches (112mm) across, which, according to Suzuki, makes them "the largest reciprocating engine pistons being used in any production passenger car or motorcycle on earth."

The Boulevard M109R’s chassis reflects a sportbike’s influence as well and what sets the M109R apart, though, is its headlight nacelle, a feature of the bike since early design sketches.

Suzuki has definitely target the performance big-twin segment and its claims are true, it should have no trouble laying claim to that title.

I bought my black 07 109 in oct 2006. I have had a few problems with shifting from first to second under hard acceleration. I have also heard the Suzuki gear clunk. I rode the other day for about 165 miles and used right at 3 gallons. I am like everyone else and I am looking for add on accessories. I have found a few things for the 109. Raw has a 300 inch rear tire conversion and some LED light replacements. Cobra exhaust has some pipes that you can listen to their sound on their website.
Love my 109.

i got my M109R on the 1st of June, and love it. I opened it out once when a Corvette tried to out pull me while entering the interstate, well I cranked it and before i knew it i was going well over 100 and the vet was far behind me. they say the M109R is arm streaching, that’s an understatement. the bike is also very plesant at 35 mph on curvey roads.

Great Bike,Really turns heads,Walked in Subway,People stopped and was taking pictures of bike.The 109r is burgandy in color,very pleased.

love my 109r just bought it.1st gear at time is finicky but ive found that if you let the clutch out again, then engage your on you way.i have 650mile so far,opened the throthle once, babe moved with the wind.ive checked online for accessories,pipes,windsheild, etc few found.pipes were cobra pipes with different option avalible.109r has plenty of power,waiting to break her in.those interested don`t wait,plenty of place to see with the 109r.see you around,fron cali,fresno

The issue with limiting the rpm in 5th gear can be eliminated with a JSD-3M. You then get the full 7200 rpm in 5th and that will take you very close to 150 mph.

Love the M109, got mine 4 days ago and have put 700 miles on it and counting. This bike turns a lot of heads and also turns a lot of tire when needed. The only issue I had was with the rear brake, had to adjust it a few times to get it to my liking. Have fun everyone.

I’ve got 1300 miles on my m109r and love it! My only grap is when will we have some accessories like a passenger back rest, windshield and saddle bags. I loved the bike but my wife want the accessories

hard Krome has exhaust for the M109R the sideburners are cool looking to buy my 109R here very shortly

Having that 1-2 and 2-3 shift problem as well but it’s the exact same thing as my Katana. Absolutely love the bike. Been taking it from Chicago to Indiana quite often and the bike is at home whether on the interstate or 2 lane roads through the dunes.
I did have a problem with the dealer over filling the oil by a quart and a half!! It was a little embarassing blowing oil out of the airbox my second day on it!

I bought my 109 last week and I can see the issue with finding first gear. It’s easily fixed either by;
(1.) If your sat at the lights in neutral then let the clutch out and in again before selecting first.
(2.) Blip the throttle and kick the thing into first.
(3.) Peform 1 and 2 while nudging forward an inch or two.
(4.) Select 2nd and pull away with some clutch slip (that’s one point of having all that torque!).
(5.) Remain in gear at the lights.
(6.) Never use first.
I also understand many of the comments about the gearbox clunkiness. This is my first cruiser but I have owned Suzukis my whole life - I still have a TL1000S in the garage hence I can say this to Suzuki first timers....Welcome to the world of the Suzuki gearbox: Kick it, slip it, grind it and abuse it. It will not let you down. The clutch may go eventually as with all bikes but the Suzuki gearboxes are the best you can get. Get used to going around driveways and tight junctions while slipping the clutch (even in 2nd) - that’s the price you pay for 130bhp V Twins. Explore clutchless upshifts from 2nd upwards and big throttle blips on the way down. This bike effectively has two race bred engines bolted together and obviously isn’t at its best when stationary. Enjoy.

Bike is awesome, but like everyone else, I want more power and got to have an exhaust to hear that power plant. Have sent emails to several exhaust companies, but no answers, to date.

i have over 2000 miles and i have the shifting down it took some time to get use to

Has any one done some upgrades on there m109r yet. Like maybe air intakes or exhaust. I’d like to try a gas tank bra as may suzuki leather jacket is making fine scratches in paint!! Also I’d like to relocate license plate and turn signals to clean up rear veiw. Any input?

MUST USE HIGH GRADE FUEL 91 AND ABOVE AND TO HELP WITH SHIFT ADJUST YOUR CLUCH TO WERE IT START TO TAKE OFF WHEN YOU BEARLY LET OUT ON YOUR CLUCH . I LOVE MY M109R YES IT WILL DO MORE THAN 125 MPH. I HAD MY AT 125 MPH AND TACH WAS AT 5 .5

Bought mine about a week ago, ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Too bad there isn’t more custom parts available for it. The back end need the license plate moved to the side to show off that fat rear end. I also have had a little trouble getting it into first a couple times, but I’ve found if you push yourself forward a bit and try it then it will go right into gear.

Ran the 1/4 mile in 12.4 at 106 on july 9th.

i love the boulevard but im pissed at suzuki for not sending my jacket i signed up for online..thanks alot suzuki!!

lotta vibration at about 3500 rpm til 4000 rpm then smoothes back out . Best handleing bike i’"ve ever owned Big Fast Comfortable!

I’love my 109 but the only problem is with 1st gear. Meny times it’s hard dos not clics in ?? Any one have same problem?

I,VE HAD MY 109 FOR 5 DAYS AND BROKE DOWN YESTERDAY. THE IGNITION FUSE BLEW, AFTER REPLACING WITH ONE OF THE SPARE FUSES THE ENGINE STARTED BUT QUICKLY BLEW THAT ONE OUT
DEALER WAS VERY HELPFULL AND SENT A MECHANIC OUT TO CHECK IT OUT
THE PROBLEM WAS TRACED TO A SHORTED WIRE IN THE SHUTOFF SWITCH, THE PLASTIC GUIDE WAS PINCHING THE WIRE TO THE METAL HOUSING. I GUESS IT TOOK FIVE DAYS FOR IT TO SHORT OUT, THE MECHANIC RELOCATED THE WIRE IT WAS ENTERING THE WRONG SIDE OF THE SWITCH HE FOLLOWED ME BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AND PERFORMED A COMPLETE REPAIR BACK ON THE ROAD DEFINITELY A FACTORY PROBLEM
LOVE MY 109 BUT IT DOE’S NOT HAVE THE QUALITY OF MY YAMAHA
