Question about 1995 Suzuki VS 1400 Intruder
A Few weeks back i had a rigid oil pipeline break on me whilst riding, although i stopped(in time) it stalled on me. I've since fixed that problem and,maybe as a coincidence, i've now got a fuel problem to the front cylinder. I thought the spark plug was to blame but it's firing up really good, but when i took the front right cover off to get to the plug i noticed a nut,metal arm and a spring in the engine well. I can only assume this is the old throttle system. I put it all back together and when starting the bike and turning this metal arm/bracket, the engine revs do adjust higher or lower. Am i on the right track as to thinking this is my problem and can you tell me what it is this metal arm is/was for and how i can adjust it to suit as my cables go straight to the carbs. It's a VS1400 intruder engine in a Hardtail chopper ( JAPANESE MODEL )
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, I would venture that those are the return spring, spring lever and locknut for the butterfly. It would be so especially if the hole of the metal arm/spring lever is not a full circle but with one section straight. If the arm has a grooved edge on one side and a small hole with notch, then that would be where the accelerator cable would be hooked up.
Perhaps a service manual of comparable model could be of more help. Pls click here.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

You will need a length of fuel pipe,
1/4" internal diameter about a foot long (ish) and an old
yoghurt pot with some break fluid in it, to stop the air going back
up the tube.
Crack and unscrew the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder one turn and place the pipe over it and down into a small amount of break fluid in the yoghurt pot.
remove the cover on the master cylinder and fill with fresh break fluid. pump the break/clutch whilst topping up. When fresh fluid is squirting out and no air in the system, tighten the bleed nipple.
There you are, an easy way to bleed your breaks and clutch.
The yoghurt pot doesn't matter, a standard clean plastic/glass container will do. I just like yoghurt straight from the fridge, so I have a lot of empty pots!
