Question about 2002 Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC

2000 Suzuki Intruder VL1500 misfire

Hello,
The intruder idles fine, and revs fine without issue when cool. But it quickly begins to misfire if I hold a mild throttle as it warms up. The hotter it is, the worse the misfire. I checked the main jets - clean. The forward plug was black as is the tailpipe. It has about 30Kmiles on it.
The voltage to both coils is right at 12 volts or a little more. I'm leaning toward a bad coil to the forward cylinder. How can I check it and what would be the test specs? Any help would be appreciated. If it could be something else, don't hesitate to recommend a test.
Thanks

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.

    I figured my issue out. The needle on one of my carbs had popped out of place and was not sliding up and down with the diaphragm like it should. If it is not that, you can check your coils with a volt-meter. If you disconnect the power to the coil and measure the resistance between the positive and negative (not the spark plug wire) and get a reading of about 4 to 5 ohms that is a good sign. Now, if you check the resistance between the spark plug wire and either of the poles the resistance should be between about 20,000 to 21,000 ohms (mine was 21, 600). If you have numbers around this then it is probably not a faulty coil. Remeber, when you do this testing have the power off and disconnected! Hope this helps.

If the exhaust is blowing black smoke when misfiring, it means that the mixture is rich, so you should look for a blocked air cleaner, or stuck choke. If the smoke is blue, then it means it is burning oil, which is more serious.
Try running the bike in the shed, with the air cleaners off and see if the problem changes

How do i see a manual for a 1999 1500 lc intruder


Hi, John the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have.

2000 Suzuki intruder VL1500 battery over 12 volts but no lights or power completely dead


Hi, Louis and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.

Hi Robnhatch, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day. 2000 Suzuki Motorcycle Service Repair Workshop Manuals
