The bike is called Penelope, after Penelope Cruz [cruiser, geddit] ? ... sorry. Rolling Eyes
I got Willie and Max panniers, as the grey goes well with the silver. Stock, apart from
Raising the bars up recently, and rust on the spokes now .. lol ... and sissy bar and rack.

with what Crash said
I would have loved your colour scheme but only black or blue seemed to be available at the time when I bought mine. The problem with black is it shows every scratch no matter how minor although I always know when the grandson has been around the house (greasy prints)

Thanks for the thumbs up guys.

Hmmm .... I wish you all didn't like the colour though, as I was thinking of getting
her re-sprayed black and copper. The copper being woven as a celtic design, with
no Suzuki names or markings on, higher bars, as I like the risers that are standard,
[I think this model can go four [?] inches higher without new cables]. new, smaller mirrors,
Oh, yea, and a set of cruzers. [not sure about how they work with the injection and
lambda sensor though].

I have to think again now. lol.

Yeah a 4'' riser will be fine on your model & year!
As for after market exhaust, well now your opening up a can of worms as to whether you need a fuel processor or whether the injectors can cope with the change or not. As for the lambada thats another can of worms, some have pipes drilled to take them and some don't.
A respray is more often about how you feel rather than whether a bike needs it or not!

Don't some of the fuel processors say that the Lambada sensor should be removed?

Hmm ... on the Yank websites you can specify if you want them or not.
I was wondering if you have to have it there, if it's there originally. Suspect

When I had my V&H cruzers fitted I had the lambda sensor fitted in them, a couple of weeks later I had a Power Commander fitted so the sensor was then removed

I know a lot of the states over there have very green policies while others allow pretty much anything.
I fitted the Healtech FI Pro and you have to have it removed when you fit that one, to be honest though I don't know what the other makers specify or suggest as a preference.......but
I would imagine they would have to be disabled though as the Lambda would be fighting with the fuel processor as it (Lambda) is trying to run at low emissions while the processor is trying to run at peak fuel/air performance.

Nice two-tone paint scheme - was that an extra over the basic on your model year? I think they only make the C800 in black now.

I didn't pay any more for that colour scheme, so I think it was basic, but maybe
it wasn't very popular. With all the chrome, the light grey does make it look a bit
*bling bling* 8)

With so many black ones around, it probably stands out from the crowd.

Looks bloody nice as is but I think your right, silver is so nice for a cruiser and apes suit these bikes so well.
