Question about 2004 Suzuki VL 800 Volusia

1 Answer

You can feel the enging backfire/sputtering.

I have a 2004 Volusia which has had only one previous owner. The bike currently on has 5000 miles on it. So it was not ridden very much until now. When i start the bike, unless I have the choke pulled out around the secon notch see will turn off. Along with that you can hear and feel the engine Backfire/Sputter. You can feel it and hear it from the outside the air cleaner. But if you remove it you can not fell anything. I had taken it in for a tune up and the tech said I needed to get my carb cleaned. So I got that done and now it is louder and more often. Please help?

Backfiring on decel


If this is a new condition and you've not worked on the bike recently, I'd try a dose of StarTron in the gas tank. It will eat the sludge that grows in fuel systems exposed to gasohol. Put it in the tank, ride a few miles to get it into the carbs, and then let it sit overnight. It has special enzymes in it that do the job. Seafoam is a good product but is not designed to clear bacterial sludge.

check for the pinched vacuum line at the carb,, sportys are hard to locate because they are tucked in way behind , it ay have come disconnected, unless there is a load on the motor it will idle fine, add a little load and you get the feeling no fuel is getting through unless you rev it up

Have you had the front wheel off at any point?

What usually happens is the magnetic speed sensor is not lined up correctly when the front wheel is replaced and the sensor breaks (a very common occurrence).
