You can pull the light apart and check the amperage they require since they are not the factory headlights they most likely have a higher amp requirement and find out what that is and then install the proper required fuse for them. Also be sure to check and see if the wires are properly hooked up and wrapped properly and are not grounding out on any metal or other wires. This should solve your problems. Might also want to see if the headlight relay is also the proper one to cover the amps they require as well. Hope this works for u and good luck

SOURCE: Clutch bleed on a Suzuki 1400 Intruder 2000

One the left-hand side of the bike (facing forward), there is cover plate just ahead of the drive shaft. Remove that cover (mine has 8mm bolts). The bleeder valve is under this cover. Go to an auto parts store and get a "one man bleeder kit" or if you have some plastic tubing that will fit over the valve, you can use that and a clean jar. Follow the instructions on the bleeder kit, or if you're using the jar and tubing, fill the jar about a quarter of the way with break fluid (use DOT4, but never DOT5!). Take the cover off the master cylinder up at the handlebars, place the tube over the end of the bleed valve (after loosening it a turn or two. Place the other end of the tube down in the break fluid in the jar. Work the clutch lever until you stop getting bubbles in the jar. Be sure to keep the fluid level up in the reservoir. Tighten the bleeder valve, remove the tubing, top off the fluid and replace the covers.

Be careful not to get brake fluid on anything. It will eat paint and mess up other things.

SOURCE: How well does the Suzuki 1400 cc Intruder handle?

The Intruder does handle fairly well compared to its' counterparts of the cruiser class, by handling I would assume your talking about how well it behaves in turns...since this class of machine IS the cruiser type do not expect to keep up with the current or past generations of sportbikes as you will fall behind. The best scenario is SMOOTH sweeping turns, the suspension in its' current form cannot deal with irregularities in the road...sportbikes' suspensions are meticulously calibrated for these real world curcumstances...cruisers cannot do this. The raked out front forks of cruisers make for a very stable platform but are not designed to be turned hard. A simple modification that I would myself do if I had a cruiser, would be the addition of a fork brace...a chunk of aluminum that strengthens the two front fork that they don't flex (As much!). In addition I would pay attention to the exaust setup, footpegs and any other hard parts that would interfere with agressive cornering(Lean angle).Some exausts hang SO far down on cruisers that they really limit how far you can bend er over...all that stuff needs to be removed, changed or modified so you can corner good up to the suspensions limit.

SOURCE: My suzuki intruder is missing backfiring on the

Did you sync the two carbs? If not the rear may be getting all the gas from the rear carb and none to the front. Twist throttle engine off and see if front carb cable is pulling the carb open.
Also unscrew the spark plug boot from the front spark plug wire and trim 1/8th inch off the wire and screw the boot back in. The plug wire end may be corroded on that wire.

Battery died and blew both fuel and ignition fuses, replaced them both and put in another battery , soon as connect battery the fuel fuse keeps blowing,, Suzuki Boulevard

Hi, Mark you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

Fuse keeps blowing

Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and start tracking the wire from the power side of the switch, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

Put your battery on a slow charge for about 2 hours or more, clean your terminals, then try it again.
If your battery is a few years old, get a new one. if still no light check your main fuse it will be located close to your battery, replace if needed. Good luck and if you still need help , submit new

Tail light fuse blowing

If it has a towing package harness,it might be in it.Remove all the tail light bulbs,and put a new fuse in to see if the fuse will blow.If it does,check the head light switch ,and the dimmer for the dash lights for a short.If the fuse does not blow,with all the bulbs out then look for a bad light socket shoring ,out,by putting one bulb in at a time,and when the fuse blows,that will be the socket that is bad.
