One item to note is that people (including myself) found that the Savage to have backfire (generally on deceleration (this is due to Suzuki the bike more EPA friendly to the requirements with its carburation). modifications to the carb can completely out the backfire, and exhaust upgrades can help with this


The bike has a wonderful style to it, and up until 2004, the bike changed to the S40, it with the sissy bar and back as well as the buck-horn bars. had intended this bike (I for people of shorter stature under 6ft tall).
