maybe give suzuki a quick email for permission before hosting it on the same server that gstwins or the wiki lives on ?
You know what happens in Australia when you call Suzuki Motorcycles head office? You get put through to Cars! That's because they don't actually have a Motorcycle Division. The cars division handle's the paperwork for the imports. And knows nothing about bikes.
They didn't even have the correct model of bike pictured on their website for the available GS down here. It was only after my call informing them of such, that the car guy passed it on to the web tech who simply added "overseas model shown". At the time even he didn't even know how to get the info to the actual tech person who could make the change on the web. Because emails to webmasters went to his office and not the tech guy. Yeah, highly organised... NOT.
Of course, things might be different in the US. But it seems to me, the more corporate anything is, the less chance of finding anyone who can make any kind of decision based on logic and reason. You'll find plenty of drones who will quote some piece of paper to you, but that's about it.
I can find all kinds of Owner Manuals for all kinds of things. Honda makes PDFs available for their bikes on their own website. BUt trying to find a user manual for the GS500 is like trying to take a close up photo of the horizon - an exercise in frustration. Of course, the site owners would have the last say of such a manual being available from their wiki. In the meantime, it's available at the link above
I also made a slight change to the wiki - added the link and not the file.
