Are you sure it's motor oil or air filter oil? Most people who regularly maintenence their air filter at every oil change clean it out and use a new "filter oil" u can find it by K&N it helps to collect the dirt that would otherwise pass thru a cheaper or paper filter causing future problems within the engine or fuel delivery system aka clogged carburator...

Rough running/dies at low rpm


Hi, RedSS if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
8. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

What type of engine oil do I use for my 1999 suzuki savage ls650


Any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate and 20w-50 for warm climate and highway driving. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label. It will shorten the life of the wet clutch and transmission gears. Suzuki makes a reasonably priced full synthetic that will help your bike run cooler and shift easier.

1997 suzuki ls650 savage engine oil type? and how much should i see in site glass to be full?


10-40 probably, check level when the bike is sitting level (the true use of the center stands) you should see oil line across the sight glass but dont fill it more than 1/2 way in the sight glass, it can cause problems.

We have a 1997 savage that the air filter was soaked in oil. what are some of the reasons for this?


Hi barhulin

Firstly, some types of after market filters are designed to be run with oil impregnation.

It is a foam Uni Pod type filter designed to be run soaked in oil.

If it is a paper type Pod, then some of these type can be run with the correct filter oil. I use an aerosol spray oil here in Australia to keep our famous "Bull Dust" out. They are often run dry.

If it has the standard paper type OEM production filter and air box fitted, then it should not have any oil on it.
If it does then it will probably relate to oil getting into the air box from the crankcase breather. First thing to check is that the oil is not over the full mark. You will get excessive misting in the oil if the sump is too full. If the oil level is alright, it may have already blown off the excess. Clean out the air box and filter and take it for a ride and get it nice and hot. Then recheck for oil in the air box. If there is still oil appearing and the level is good, then you may have a crankcase pressure problem from blow by. This is generally indicative of failing compression rings or worn piston/sleeve/rings in combinations. Do a compression test of the engine. Low compression will tell you that soon you may have a top end rebuild on your hands. Happy to answer any other questions you may have,. Cheers
