Question about 2004 Suzuki VL 125 Intruder LC

1 Answer

Hard to select neutral

Suzuki VL 125cc Intruder (2003). Only aquired bike in the last fortnight. Gearchange lever on worn spigot?, Chain is in dirty/rusty condition though it is now oiled by me - has now jumped the rear sprocket. Engine works perfect and is very clean as are all the other casings, no trace of any oil leaks. Bike is in need of TLC! Looks as though it has not been used regularly. My first cruiser - need pointing in the right direction from the start - hope you can help.

Difficulty in selecting neutral is most likely due to clutch drag. Does the bike jump forwards when you select first gear? This could be due to dry or wrongly adjusted clutch cable. Another though less likely cause could be weak clutch springs or a worn clutch basket. Aim for about 5mm free play at clutch lever.

I have owned this intruder for a year now. It had a problem when going up or down hills in 4th gear. it would shift into neutral or false neutral between 4th and 5th gear. Now it is shifting into neutral...


Hi, Phsyco1 nice novella and the usual suspects are:
1. Shifter pawl improperly adjusted.
2. Shifter drum improperly adjusted or damaged.
3. Shifter engaging parts/dogs badly worn or rounded.
4. Shifter forks bent.
5. Damaged gears.

Hi,sometimes its hard to get my suzuki vl 125 into first gear, you have to jolt the bike with a rev to engage first.any suggestions? many thanks Charlie .


If the gearbox oil is REALLY dirty it can affect shifting.The only other thing will be a shift fork going bad. Replacing a shift fork is not generally a do-it-yourself project. The dealer will charge $750 or more. Sure do hope you have dirty oil...

SUZUKI INTRUDER 125, WHICH CHAIN SHOULD I BUY


the chain type is 428. take chain off and count # of links.give those 2 #s to parts guy. when you replace a worn chain,the front and rear sprockets should be replaced at the same time, because worn sprockets and a new chain will cause accelerated chain wear. count # of teeth on sprockets & give those 2#s to the parts guy also. if you want a longer wearing chain, buy one w/ the highest tensile strength,once again, parts guy can help you find that.dont forget,lube & adjust chain as needed.
