Intruder carbs are notorious for this issue. What you have going on is that the needle seat has become worn out. The problem is, that this carb was designed with pressed in needle seats that cannot be removed. You will need to search online for an intruder carb rebuilder that can press in the seats for you, as well as change the seals, replace the needle, check the diapragm and jets, and replace/clean the floats. OR, you can try to find new carbs online from a wrecked or used Intruder 1500 VL.

I would suggest just cleaning out your carbys, theres not much in a carby kt, mabey a gasket, or an o ring. Take your carbys off and remove the bowl, clean out any jets. make sure your air filter is clean too.

My 2002 suzuki intruder 1500vl is backfiring on the back cylnder y is that

This could be any number of things. First consider the most obvious. Change the rear spark plug. Then check the compression in the rear cylinder. If compression is low, it could be a valve sticking or a piston ring wore or a hole in cylinder. If compress is alright, rebuild carbs. I would check out options in a row. I don't think it could be a be the stator or regulator. But it could be. Those would need to be checked out by dealer. Hope tis helps.

Exhaust pipes gets beat red and the cluth went out

The thing that will make your pipes turn red while running (usually under load) is your carbs being dirty and the bike is running way to lean. getting to much air and not enough fuel. if it was running rich to much fuel the bike would sputter and backfire and foul plugs. if you keep running it like that you will likely blow a hole through the piston or the head gasket. you most likely need a carb clean and sync.
if the bike was sitting and not stored (fuel drained and cylinders fogged) there is probably sludge in the carbs. a carb clean is not something for a novice. its easier to pay a shop to clean and sync them. not cheap but almost always the better way to go if you do not have carb experience.

The clutch going out is a separate issue. if the clutch does not engage at all when you release the clutch lever then that could be a failure of the clutch basket or the springs that push the plates together. the clutch is under the right side cover near your right foot. if the clutch is grabbing but slipping it is worn clutch plates and springs and can be repaired with a clutch rebuild kit.

either way you end up taking off the clutch cover. not a hard job if you are handy. rebuild kits come with instructions.

How do you rebuild the rear master cylinder on a 2003 Suzuki 1500 intruder

1. Remove it.
2. Disassemble it. You will need snap ring pliers.
3. Reassemble it with new rubber seals.
4. Reinstall it and bleed the brake system.
(Check price on replacement, as it may be comparable to the price of just the parts.)
