Question about 1995 Suzuki VS 800 Intruder
I can run the bike for a while then it backfires and dies. I try to restart it and I found the battery was dead.. I had to push it to a place and recharge the batter and it started right up again, no problem..The Bike won't charge the battery but a charger can. Is this the rectifier, and how tough is it to change?
Rectifier and/or stator, could be the problem. Check the amperage out put with an amp meter at idle and at 3000 RPM to determine. Troubleshoot all electrical terminals, disconnect, clean, and apply a small amount of Di Electric grease to contacts.
Corrosion causes a lot of problems and is common on bikes after a few years. The main ground wire from the battery to where it connects to the frame is important also. I have found this heavily corroded on a lot of bikes over 10 years old.
Good luck, hope this helps.
