Where can I get a replacement key for my 1995 Suzuki vs800gl

Most likely you won't be able to get a replacement key for your bike but you can get a whole new one with a set of keys. You will also need to replace your gas cap if it used the same key like mine did. Hope this helped

Ive just put a anew battery and plugs on my bike,but it still wont start,i have checked and there is a spark on the plug and the bike is turning over but it isnt firing

Remove lh cover from air filter ( chrome cover) and spraysome easy start into the housing while turning the engine over, you could also soak a cloth in fuel, and hold it in the ail filter housing with filter removed, this way when you attemt to start it the fuel on the cloth will enter the engine and hopfully your bike will start, quickly remove the cloth or the engine will flood, if the bike starts hold the throttle at a steady 3000rpm for a miniute or two, until the bike will idle if your bike runs then stops after this, you may try draining the fuel from the carb by undoing the screw at the lowest point of the carb, let it drain completely, in severe cases you may have to remove and cleanout carb
