Instructions

  1. Take Down
    • 1 Park the motorcycle on the kickstand or center stand and allow the exhaust pipes to cool completely.
    • 2 Refer to your Suzuki service manual and organize the metric tools needed to remove the baffle. On newer models, it may be necessary to remove the tailpipe section to modify the baffle. On older models, you may be directed to remove a bolt that secures the baffle in the tailpipe.
    • 3 Follow the procedure given in the manual and remove the tailpipe section or slide-in baffle using the appropriate tools. Save any brackets or bolts. Place the tailpipe or baffle on a workbench.
    Tailpipe Baffles
    • 4 Hold one end the tailpipe up to a light and look inside the other end. Depending on the baffle, you may see very little light or none at all. Modifying the baffle is a matter of opening up areas in the baffle.
    • 5 Chuck a 1/4-inch drill bit in an electric drill. Use a bit extension if necessary to reach deep into the tailpipe with the drill bit.
    • 6 Place the tailpipe on a workbench. Use a towel or rags to prevent scratching the finish. Insert the tip of the drill bit into the tailpipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole in the baffle.
    • 7 Hold the tailpipe up to the light again. Determine the number of additional holes you want based on the purpose of the modification. Drill additional holes in the baffle if needed.
    • 8 Stand the tailpipe on end and tap it on the workbench to clear the debris from drilling out of the baffle. Make sure all debris is cleared out before reinstalling the tailpipe on the motorcycle.
    Slide-In Baffles
    • 9 Secure the outer end of the baffle in a bench vise with the baffle extending to one side. The outer end has the threaded hole where the bolt was removed to take the baffle out of the exhaust pipe.
    • 10 Measure the length of the baffle and divide it by four. You modify a slide-in baffle by cutting off a one-quarter section at a time using a hacksaw. Mark the baffle at the one-quarter point and cut the first section off the end.
    • 11 Reinstall the baffle in the exhaust pipe using the saved bolt and the metric tool.
      Start the motorcycle and determine if the modification produced the desired result.
    • 12 Allow the exhaust pipe to cool completely before removing the baffle for further modification. Most likely, cutting one or two quarter sections will give you the result you want. Avoid cutting too much off the baffle, or it will be useless.

After market indicators were fitted. The front lenses only had 5 watt bulbs fitted causing the problem. Upgrading to 21 watt bulbs fixed the problem.

SOURCE: can you tell me the fork oil weight for gsx 1400

It depends on what type of ride you want,,,i prefer 10weight and just a tad of air in the forks! Be careful when using a gas station air hose, you could blow a seal...just give a little quick burst till you see the forks raise up a little .you can use transmission fluid if you like also, it"ll work just as good.

High limit switch keeps triping on tornado oven and ir temp doesnt move ir elemnt was repaced as well the i/o board


the K4/K5 relay tells the convection circuit AND the IR circuit to allow voltage to the elements.. if it is bad you will not get 1 or other or even both.. if you have convection heat and you are positive that the ir element and I/O board are good then swap the b1/b2 terminals with the a1/a2 terminals on that relay and retest.. if the IR now works then order the new K4/K5 relay. it is a common issue with them. the relay is behind the blower motor on the right side.. 3 screws to remove the blower and that relay is right behind it. it is the only relay with a single orange wire and the other 3 are blue.

Suzuki GSX1400 fork oil viscosity and volume please


There is 644 ml of oil in each leg, Suzuki say L01 type oil. 5W oil should be the equivalent, if you want stiffer suspension us 10w, it really depends on you. Most are happy with 5W oil
