Question about 2001 Suzuki VS 800 Intruder
I recently bought a 2001 VS 800 Intruder, low mileage, appears to be in top shape. The bike had been stored for over a year, and previous owner apparently had dealership service it and get it ready to ride. Hard to start when cold: it starts immediately but dies several times before finally stays running, won't start at all with throttle advanced. Doesn't seem to matter if choke knob is pulled or not. I verified that the choke cable is working and choke plunger is moving. Any suggestions before I remove the carbs to look for obstructed passages?
Hey apparently and did are two different stories draining the float bowls and cleaning the carbs are two different things the fact that the choke dosent change suggest the carbs are stopped up after sitting for 1 year clean the carbs let them soak in carb cleaner and blow them out with high pressure air, keep notes of the adjustments befor you dissasemble them (air screws)
