SOURCE: I have a 2000 1200 custom sportster. It leaks oil

if the oil tank is above the crank case, inspect the oil pump check valve. go online and study the check valve's functional purpose and see to it that the vale is operating properly. it should not be an expensive fix.
if you reroute hose be carefull of rear tire annnd what does the oil level in the oil tank sit at when full and after the leak happens after -say a day of riding- a week

SOURCE: rebuilt carbs-starts and idles but wont rev up without choke on

sounds like the main jets are partly pluged, you must remve all brass jets and seats including needle jet and its slide soak in carb cleaner and blow out with compressed air only.. hold up to bright light to verify if all are clean. jim

SOURCE: Correct oil fuel ratio,1980 Pe 400

32 to 1 gas and oil > Two Stroke Engine Oil ( not Motor oil ). This equals 4ounces oil per gallon of gas.

Use premium unleaded gas. No Ethanol gas.

10w40 motor oil for the gearbox. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

Fill to the site glass. Anywhere from middle of the glass to just below the top of the glass. The engineers put the glass there for a reason. Typographic errors do come to light at times.

Top rating on the answer! Thanks. :)

SOURCE: how do you check the oil level on 2003 suzuki

at the bottom of the engine on the brake side of the bike, around the gearbox, there's a look through window with a low level and a high level marked on it, the oil should be between those after it's heated, check it hot, let the engine run 3 minutes or so, you have to put the bike up right to correctly check the oil level, which means you'll need a friend to hold the bike up while you look at the level through the window, or you can use a brick or something under the kick stand to keep the bike more level, just be careful. To change the oil, you'll need to get an oil filter and 2.1 quarts (I think that's the right amount, it's 2000 ml) of 10w - 40 oil and then all the stuff to catch the old oil and funnels and rags and an allen wrench, I think it'll be a 4mm allen wrench, but I'm not sure on that, check with your bike, there are 3 allen wrench bolts that are holding a panel onto your gear box, behind this panel is your oil filter. Drain oil first before taking this panel off and changing your filter, there's bolt on the kickstand side of the engine at the bottom of the bike, it's sideways, this is the drain plug for the oil, it'll probably be hot so careful unscrewing it, take it out and the oil will pour out, but it's sideways so it's going to be messy, use a funnel or something to direct the oil into a bucket or container of some kind. after oil is drained, replace drain plug, now use an allen wrench and take off the panel on your gear box, pull out the oil filter, discard of properly, put the new oil filter in. put the panel back on the gear box. on the same side there's a black plastic turn screw cap that's where the new 2.1 quarts of oil goes in there. if you don't change the filter the amount of oil you use is less, put the plastic cap back on and you're done. 

I reccomend taking it to a mechanic to do this, but, I'm going to do mine myself, I think I'm just going to add oil to mine, it's low, I have a 2008 Suzuki S-40 which is the same thing as a Savage, with just different badging. 

I am not a professional or anything so, I'm just reading from the owner's manual that came with my bike. best of luck.

I have a 2003 suzuki volusia with 34k miles, of those 3k are mine. I bought the bike a month ago and since then it has been my reliable daily drive. The past week the bike has been taking long to warm up,...


Sounds like you may have a air leaking before your carburetor, check your rubber boot that mouths your carburetor to your intake, look for a crack or a pin hole or maybe your clamp needs tightened, at least that is one thing I can think of that may cause the problem you are describing, hope that help you! Good luck Rick.

How do i check the oil because i just bought a 2009 suzuki bulevard but there dip stick? and the dealer ship didnt give me an owners manuel


On newer model bikes there is no dipstick, just a cap.
so to check the oil level, you need to look on the engine cover itself.
there will be a sight glass, with 2 hash marks on the case .
lower line is minimum, top line is maximun

If the sight glass is too dirty, warm up the bike and then change the oil and filter.
Then watch the sight glass as you fill the oil.

if bike is equipped with a center stand, always check oil on center stand.
if no center stand then check oil with bike on kickstand.

The sight glass will be either on the right side lower engine cover
or left side lower engine cover.
it it round and about the size of a quater.

Hope to be helpful.
best regards

Fuel leaking passed the carbs into cylender on 1980 gs 1100 L suzuki. i have the carbs out, i want to know what i need to do to fix.


are you turning the fuel valve off if bike sits for more than one hour?? the valve should not let fuel flow in the run position (straight up and down), if it does the fuel tank valve is defective, the valve is only supposed to let fuel flow when engine vacuum is present, had this same bike so very sure on this. U can rebuild the valve with new O rings.

1980 Suzuki GS750 16valve oil leak


Get the VIN from the frame and call a Suzuki dealer with the number. They should be able to tell you exactly what you have. The regulator and the rectifier should not get red hot; replace. You can get many parts at Babbitt's. 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. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

What is the reliability of the 1980 suzuki gs750l, .


Many of these bikes will run fine with high miles. I would check the tires, fork seals for leaking fluid. Listen to the engine and exhaust for odd noises. Pinging and rattling are bad. See how it shifts. These bikes require a special tool to replace the clutch plates and that can be expensive.

I owned a 1982 GS550L with 33k Miles on it, and it rode fine. Watch that tire pressure and suspension. Other than that, enjoy your bike!
