Question about 1999 Suzuki VS 1400 Intruder
I tested the coil with a ohm meter and it read good. I also took it to a local bike shop here and they put it on a machine and it read good. The rear cylinder is getting fire but not the front. I checked all the wires and joints and they all seem good. I pulled the boot off and tested it without the boot and still not fire. It will run then when it gets hot the front cylinder goes out. Now its not firing at all... Could it be a fuse? Or is it the pick up coil or maybe the CDI box. I appreciate any info on this. Also suzuki does not sale the pickup coil seperate.. They sale it with the stator which is $650. I found a brand new pick up coil on ebay for $25 bucks and was going to splice it in. Again any info is very much appreciated. I just got the bike and I hope i did not get burnt. My wife is about to kill me. Please help! Thanks

I assume you got this fixed; sounds like it wasn't getting gas to the carbs. Some people don't realize the 99-02 SV650 has a vacuum-actuated fuel pump, and sometimes it can get stuck. Mine has had this problem, and it took me a while to determine it was the problem. I would guess it only happens after the bike has been sitting a while.
Best way to check it is to lift the tank (it's bolted to the frame on the right side of the engine just under the tank). Unplug the line toward the front of the motorcycle from the fuel pump, and connect some spare fuel hose to it running to a can next to the bike (don't want to get gas everywhere!). With everything else still connected, crank the bike for a short period to see if any fuel comes out (shouldn't take long). If not, then move backward and ensure fuel will flow from the vacuum-petcock when the bike is cranked. If that does work, your fuel pump needs some work. I was able to take mine apart and unstick it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, test for the presence / absence of below described voltages using an analog / needle type voltmeter when starting the bike:
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Does it smell rich like gas isn't being burnt and coming out the tail pipe? If so then it's probably the spark plugs. Actually I bet you any money it is. They're cheap and easy to replace, give it a try.
