    wrong !! if your having to keep the choke on to keep running then you have fuel starvation !! check fuel flow and the high and low jets ! fuel tap etc !

I have a 2002 suzuki intruder volusia vl800. When I got it it has led rear brake and taillights no turn signals. So it only had 3 wires hooked up. I got a tail/brake/turn signal combo led it has 5...


so is this the reals story?
  1. I modified my car,
  2. now it dont work?
is that it? we cant help you fix a car that is not stock
sorry, the books only cover stock, so if walk that path, then get pro
help that is willing to work on hacked up cars.

put it back to stock
bingo it works
now break it again, repeat ,wash and repeat.

YOU DO know that many cars will not run LED , correctly right
and blinkers top that list.

there are 2 cures,
1: back to stock
2: get dummy load resistors to fool car in to thinking blinkers are stock.

most blinker modules, do a dance (actup) on purpose.
the warn you that a light is dead or shorted.
putting in LED makes said MODULE, think lights are dead.
(it measure current and goes, gee, lamp out)

so if you are not a tech or engineer, (learn that ) or skip all that. stuff.

2002suzuki vl800 float level spacs.any one?


6.5 - 7.5mm 0.26" - 0.30" Hold the carb body at 45 degrees to the table top with the float arm just contacting the needle valve. The float tang for adjusting is the small metal plate attached to the float.
If you are going to be working on it much get a Clymer Manual.

Float setting for BS34ss carb


I have a set my float to 22.0 +- 1.0 for a Mikuni carb.
To set floats, drain the carbs, pull the carbs from the bike invert and remove float bowl.
With the carb inverted, take off the float bowls. Take off the gasket. Use a vernier caliper or an accurate device to measure from the carb body to the top of the float block.
Here is are a couple of good sites about carbs and such.
