Question about 2003 Suzuki VL 800 Volusia

Open Question

What would cause my 2003 Suzuki Volusia 800cc to knock after spark plug replacement? We replaced the plugs and it knocked when we cranked the engine. We put in the old plugs and it still knocked. It almost sounds like something is on top of the piston, but didn't drop anything in the engine. The motorcycle ran fine before the spark plug change. I have 19,000 miles on the engine and keep up with maintenance and oil changes.

SOURCE: how to change coolent

like anywhere else. what do you expect to hear if you are lazy to ask properly in a few sentences?
first have the engine cool down, then pour out the old coolAnt into a container like a distilled water  container. Add distilled water and coolant in proper volumes and crank up the engine. then de-aerate the cooling system and it's done

SOURCE: where are the spark plugs

Follow the spark plug wires, you will find them. they are in the heads of the bike, somewhere, probably buried in a well, with the plug wire coming out. Check it out.

My 2003 suzuki volusia 800 will not turn on it cranks but doesn't turn on


Hi Oscar, and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Vacuum hose to fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, loose, corroded or broken battery terminal connections especially the "NEGATIVE" cable inside the harness at both ends.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP CKP and/or BAS).
11. Sticky or damaged valve or pushrod wrong length.
12. Primary cam sprocket spline sheared or missing spacer.
13. Security alarm needs a reset.

Check engine for knock sensor lighting up it says short/low bank 1


Check the wiring harnesses for bare or brittle spots. If none are found replace the spark plugs, all of them and spark plug wires. I know these are still fairly new but that is the next step. If you have over 60,000 miles on the vehicle it could be an issue with the timing chain but my experience tells me replace the crank Position sensor first if none of the other steps yield any results. Because these vehicles come with the power train warranties they do you can't really trust the Dealer Mechanics because they will do anything they can to prolong this to get the vehicle out of warranty.

ENGINE KNOCK


It's related, The connecting rod pins may have gotten damaged and needs to be replaced. The knock you are getting sounds like the piston slap due to the connecting pins being damaged and the piston is moving around the cylinder walls and connecting rod. When the spark plugs wire was crossed the wrong spark plugs fired while the piston was still on it's way up the cylinder as to having it fire on the way down. This will cause stress to the valve's, piston, connecting pins, crank shaft, and main bearings. In short all the internal lower moving parts to an engine. Good Luck and have a compression test on all the cylinders and the one that is damaged will be the lowest compression reading.
