I owned the boulevard s50 or what I think is essentially the vs800. I owned it for over 2 years and put about 25,000 miles on it with little issues. I really liked the bike and unfortunately it was stolen. I am looking either for the same thing (another s50) or the 1400. I have checked around to see about the differences between the two and there is the obvious things like different back break and a little different suspension I believe.

What I am worried about is any major problems that might arise commonly on the 1400. Is there any reason NOT to get the bigger bike. I loved the s50 a whole lot and will be getting on again either way as a daily driver.

The 1400 isn't a Suzuki. It is built by Kawasaki and badged as a Suzuki. None of the parts are interchangeable with any other bike in the Suzuki family.

As far as aftermarket support for it? There is none. OEM Parts? Good luck.

Wow I didn't notice anything about that in my little bit of research, thank you

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

Perhaps you were thinking of the 1500? It's also known as the C90. Those are fairly popular and there are a few former/current owners around here.

thanks!
And specifically I was thinking the s83, I was under the impression it was just a larger displacement of the s50. I like the thin and light design of that product line.
