    I should of told you it's a 2008 and only has 1300miles on it. Bought it 2 weeks ago. I see it's a problem with other 400's. Why? You get a surgeing feeling when driving and now a knock noise at hard throttle. I see my fuel MPG went down too. Is there a ajustment to be made?

Replace the belt.

    Right - I am not sure of your driving or of the bike's history, but if it has been ridden little and in a damp (i.e. winter) environment, it may be that the variator is a bit rusty and is causing the belt to jump around. The variator also won't be able to make it to its full extent - either high or low in its travels and this will certainly cause an issue with the performance.

    1300 miles in more than a year isn't a lot...

    There is only one real answer - you need to open the variator cover and seefor yourself.

After changing trear wheel on 2006 belt driven suzuki intruder 1500 when i put inn gear it makes a grrrring noise

Suzuki intruders are shaft drive only unless someone has engineered a major conversion to belt drive
when refitting the rear wheel something has gone wrong and it may be binding on something and causing the noise remove rear wheel and check for points of contact if none shaft drive ,gearbox and clutch need to be investigated

Suzuki ignis 2002 was making a sqealling sound then the battery light came on then temperature rose then settled again any ideas please

check drive belt . If it drives the power steering as well then it may be loose and not driving the water pump and alternator (battery light and temperature rise)/ Loose belt on power steering pump = squeal noise

It struggles to start sometimes, other times it doesnt. yesyerday i heard a screaching noise while driving, later that night it wouldnt start. the car lights were diming then nithing

Check your belts, the screaching noise was probably coming from the belt slipping. Make sure the alternator and all the pulleys are turning freely.

I have a Grand Vitar Suzuki 2006, the light started flashing on the heater dial and the heaters was blowing cool air. My brother told me to check the antifreeze, I did and it was low, so I put some...

When you filled the resevoir you could have over filled it. it should only be about half way up when the car is cool. If you over filled it, them some of it will come out when the car is hot. that would account for the smell. when it came out it could have gotten on the drive belt, this will cause the drive belt to chirp or squeal. To get it to stop, start the engine and pour some water on the belt, try to get the water on both sides of the belt. You might have to do this acouple of times. this will clean the coolant off the belt and stop the noise. Be carefull the belt will sling the water everywhere.

Whinning Noise when cold.

Timing belts don't while because they don't slip! Could be the water pump/alternator belt.

06 Suzuki Forenza make a loud clicking noise.

sounds like it just needs a oil & filter change ?
check engine oil level!
smell it to see if its burnt
or is dirty [tarnished or black]
or gritty between your fingers?
it could be noisy tappets or lifters!
change your mechanic as its got absolutely nothing to do with the belts!
im truly amazed at the amount of rip offs in the auto industry in the US!
Cheers Rob.

Transmission noise

if the belt is too tight &/ or misaligned, it can make nasty squelching noises!?? I found that the cush-drive hub runs on only a single bearing, off-centred to the belts pull, which could not maintain radial/ alignment stiffness, this made all the square teeth on the belt wear to a taper, i eventually had a secondary 'outrigger' needle-roller bearing mounted on the far inside end of the cush-drive hub [this took a little specialised machining] and the new belt since, now wears true!
