Question about 1994 Suzuki VS 800 Intruder

1 Answer

I have a 1994 Intruder. It only starts and runs

I have a 1994 Intruder. It only starts and runs with a full choke. At full choke it will idle (rough) but then dies. If choke is not engaged it will die unless I continue to give it gas. When it's running and the throttle is open the pipe coming from the rear carb gets really hot while the other one doesnt. As soon as I quit giving it gas it dies - wont idle on its own. Any suggestions?

The hot side is running way too lean. Have your carbs synchronized may help. Try draining the bowls. Good luck.

'87 Yamaha ProV 50: Will cold start and idle well. After a full throttle 1-2 min run will begin & continue running very rough near idle. Will die without addtl throttle imput.


Hi Roderick:
I'm not familiar with your engine configuration, but on some of the older bikes, vibration eventually can cause a wire to break in the coil. When the engine is cold, the wires make contact and it runs, but as soon as it gets hot, the connection is broken or compromised and the spark quits or drives you crazy.
Since your bike runs when cold and quits when hot, I'd be looking for electrical rather than fuel problems.
Hope this helps.

Runs real rough when started up but after about 3 minutes levels out and runs great! is this normal?


How's the choke setting?
Technically it sounds your chokes are not working properly. Check it out.

Only idles with choke out


you have a dirty carburetor/carburetors. a good old fashioned carb cleaning will fix it up. here is a temporary fix that will get you going again. screw your idle mixture needles in ( counting the turns ) THEN SCREW THEM BACK OUT THE SAME NUMBER OF TURNS.

1994 intruder will not start


the first thing is to make sure the gas has not gone bad, it has a carb... so if you smell gas strong try pulling the choke all the way and and giving it full throttle turn and turing it over to clear it out. try that first and see what it does. it may run down the battery so be carefull

hope this will help a little
