I couldn't find a free PDF download. Go to and you may find one there. If not, Google " repair manuals suzuki ". Also Google " service manuals suzuki ".
I can help on parts with a parts diagram.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

I have a 2001 Suzuki Intruder VS800. it has a loud slapping noise. It does it at the beginning of start up then goes away until it warms up. Within a matter of minutes the back cylinder is heated up.

The back cylinder usually heats quicker and runs hotter and consequently is the first to develop problems. If you think the back cylinder is abnormally hot abnormally quicker there is probably a problem that is likely to manifest as a reduction in power, smoothness, economy and possibly strange or unusual noises.

It would be well to try and trace the noise using a stethoscope, sonoscope or similar device. If the noise seems to be originating from the back cylinder it should be thoroughly checked - coolant circulation, compression, cylinder leakage, fuel-air mix, etc.

Stuck valve

It is not unusual for the left side exhaust to be hotter. It hooks to the rear cylinder that has the least air flow and consistently runs hotter.
If the back pressure draws a dollar bill in when placed at the end of the pipe, this is typically caused by improperly closing valves.

The front cylinder runs fine but the rear cylinder pops and backfires, sometimes the rear cylinder will backfire after the engine is turned off, what can i do to fix this.

That could be the spark plugs causing the run on. The rear piston runs hotter because it is heated by the front one, so try a cooler plug.

If you look at the base of the cylinder the actual displacement is stamped in the metal Usually in the front.

2000 Suzuki Intruder VL1500 misfire

Hey, I have a 2000 Intruder 1500 as well and in the last week I have had the exact same problem and was thinking the same thing. I checked the front plug and it is pretty covered in black and changed both plugs. This did not help, still seemed like the front cylinder wasn't working just right. If you could let me know what you eventually find I would really appreciate it.

Motorcycle running on one cylinder

First, determine which cylinder is bad. Touch the exhaust pipes to determine which is hotter.(the pipes get VERY hot so be quick or use a non-contact thermometer.)
Remove and look at the bad cylinder's plug, if ti's wet you are getting fuel, try replacing it. (Heck, replace it anyway.)
If there is no fuel on the plug the carburetor might be plugged or need cleaning.
