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...

SOURCE: removal of fuel tank to change spark plug

There should be a bolt towards the bottom of the tank. You will have to remove Your seat to see it. Undo the bolt and slide it out. Shut off the (petcock) fuel valve first. You don't need to take off the fuel line. There should be 2 other hoses under it aswell. You may need to reconnect them if they come off.

SOURCE: my '86 suzuki savage won't rev up it just back fires

When I had my savage it backfired all the time. They are known for this. Make sure you fuel is not to lean. Just adjust the fuel. You should adjust that and put some sea foam in it or ethenol treatment since most of the gas is terrible these days. Running 91 octane will help. Also you will want to replace the muffler gasket too.
When you replace that it will smoke which is normal.
I sold mine but I know the bike pretty well from tearing it apart due to trying to fix it from not running properly. Let me know if you have any more issues.

2002 suzuki savage wont stay running and it only has 9770 miles on it

we have this problem too. Trued cleaning the whole fuel system, changing the carb & plugs. Some one told us that the coil is bad or the key ignition needs replacing as too many keys hanging when driving is bad. I sold it but the new owner is stumped too. It may be a common problem but who knows??? Best of Luck!

Not starting

Look under the gas tank near the top of engine - find a large black wire (about size of a pencil in thickness) it will end at the top of your spark plug, 1 on each side of the engine on my 650, first remove rubber boot, second apply plug socket (should be one in your tool kit) if not buy one to fit. A spark plug socket has rubber inside it prevents damage to the plug, remove spark plug, remember righty tighty and lefty loosey, check the gap set on the plugs, just ask the guy at the store to check it when you buy them, you will learn how to do it if you just watch, insert new plug using your fingers only, dont force it! you want to start the threads correctly and not cross thread the spark plugs, you should be able to get several turns by hand/fingers alone - tighten - but dont over tighten the spark plug, it not good. Then pop the boot back on the new plug and repeat on the other side of the bike. NOTE: I have to remove the aluminum insulator on top of the new spark plugs to put the spark plug boots back on, its threaded also so lefty loosey etc, you may need to also. Charge the battery while you are doing this and have some starting fluid/ether nearby. if the bike is cranking but wont fire you have other issues.

Backfire wile deselerating were is the sparkplug

A bad spark plug is not the likely cause of this, a rich mixture or intake leak or exhaust system leak will. The spark plug is located under the gas tank. The gas tank must be removed to access the spark plug, do not use any pliers to remove insulator plug boot, twist it by hand and gently pull as you twist until it breaks free.

Suzuki savage not starting. Cannot find fuse box. Replace spark plug already.

You don't really have a fuse box, what you have is a 2 fuse holder type of fixture under the seat, it's about a 3/4 inch square cream and black holder, these 2 fuses run it all. - Les

Need to change spark plug and do not have do i get to the plug...also backfires when i shut it off

pull the gas tank off to get to the plugs, be very careful pulling the plug wires loose, they are easily damaged, as far as the backfiring goes is the idle speed to high?
