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.

Try running it with a jump box or battery it does check the stator.under the seat u will find a row of electric connection. there will be one that has 3 yellow wires. unplug it start the bike and use a volt meter on ac volts u should have around 80 ac volt..(note this is ac power not dc power). if u have no power the stator is bad.

High idle how do I adjust the idle down?

This is the REAR carb.

Item #42 is the idle speed adjuster.

When the engine revs just by turning the handlebars this is the routing of the throttle cables hanging up, and pulling on the cables when you turn the bars....reroute cables!

I have a 2002 suzuki intruder 1400, the parking lights work in the front but not in the back, all turn signals work though

The simplest first thing you can do is make sure the bulbs are good. I doubt it has anything to do with the jumping. It is 12V, right?

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.
