Replaced battery and alternator it still wont start unless charger is on boost then runs for 10 min then dies wont restart unless battery charger on it again?

Either the battery is a dud, (cant retain a charge) or the alternator is not charging possibly due to a wire not connecting or wires incorrectly connected or both. Check voltage at the alternator (large terminal) without motor running, should be around 12 to 13 volts

1997 1400 Intruder with no spark. Replaced ignition module and pickups still no spark

This is old school, you need to check and make certain your magneto armature is still magnetized. See if a Steele object will stick to it. If not it wont ever generate enough magnetism to cause a spark. You can re-magnetize it by applying DC 12 volt current thru the field sides for about 60 seconds. Once engine is running the rotation of the armature will fully re-magnetize its self. Since your system combines charging, spark timing and ignition pulse to the coils it has a lot of demand on it. Setting for a long time will cause this condition or something like hooking the battery up backwards for a split second can de-magnetize it. 70 years ago this was a common problem with cars, trucks, boats and motor cycles.

The battery on my 1995 Suzuki intruder 1400 keeps going dead. Why?

either the battery has had it or you're alternator has. if theres no lights on the clock when engine running i'd say the battery was worn out. put a voltmeter across the battery before starting, should be in excess of 12 volts. start the engine and look again, should be up around 13+ volts, this will prove the charging circuit is ok. if the battery isn't faulty then you have a current leak somewhere, check all your connections especially alarm systems

I can charge the battery on my 96 suzuki intruder vs1400 all night. The next day it starts fine, but when I drive it, it will die on me, & it wont start brcause the battery is dead!

The obvious problem would be your altenator that is not charging. Attach a volt meter to your batter and run the engine. The volt meter should go up to around 14 volts when you rev the engine above about 2000 RPM. If it does not rise, the alternator in not functioning.

On the 1400 intruder the engine dies on idling when I turn the lights on

sounds like you have a charging system problem. your main computer requires a certain amount of voltage to keep the bike running. once you turn on the lights, that takes away some of the voltage going to the computer. either you battery is going bad, replace if old, or your charging system is not working properly. if i recall corretly the computer requires a minimum of 10.5 volts to run the bike.

My 1999 Suzuki intruder 1400 dies when I put on the turn signal. It doesnt do it at higher RPMs, just when it is at idle or above. I assume it to be a bad ground, but all the signals test out. Any advice?

Check the Voltage at the battery whilst the engine is running, it should be around 13 to 14 volts. If it is 12 volts you might not be charging the battery, when you put the indicator on the low voltage will drop out the Ignition - very typical Suzuki.

Suzuki 1400 intruder wont start.. just clicking noise.

It's most likely the connection to the battery. The screws dont tighten in well and you get the famous clicking....I replaced the stock philips screws with a hex bolt and after two years of trying to solve the problen have been starting everytime for the past year no problems. Another gie away is the intermitant starting problem gets worse when wet.
