Question about Suzuki Boulevard C90T Motorcycles

2 Answers

I have a 2006 Suzuki C90T it has only 1500 miles and I have always keep it in a garage. It is in mint condition. It has always been difficult to shift from 1st to 2nd and getting it to slide into gear like on all mine other bikes is almost impossible unless I use fast acceleration like racing away.It feels almost like either the clutch is not fully engaged or there is some sloppyness and needs speed shifting but this is a crusier

Your clutch is not fully disengaging. It needs to be adjusted, Pulling your clutch lever in you should feel the clutch and feel pressure within about 1/2 to 3/4 inch, you should not have more than 1/4 inch free play, or looseness in the clutch lever. You can get some adjustment at the Lever using the lock ring and clevis. But you may have to pull the clutch cover and adjust it directly at the clutch. With the clutch adjusted proper you should then be able to pull the lever all the way in and be able to shift into first gear with out any problems. Just a short **** as it engages the teeth.

    Not sure what is going on. I said nothing about transmission fluid. I owned a Yamaha shaft drive for 11 years and have done all the maint. since the warranty ran out. I have 2 ASE certifications. Your clutch is not fully disengaging. First gear to second gear is the biggest RPM drop in the shift range. There is approx 650 rpm's drop in a cruiser V twin at first to second, all other gear changes is approx 500 rpm, with speeds to 60 mph in second gear alone without changing at all, and at that speed the jump to fifth can be done with out the clutch. Due to the engine power you need the clutch to start moving and then again at the first to second change, all others can be done without the clutch if you feel the rpms right.

2006 Suzuki Boulevard C90T four ways only one in the front and one in the back work any idea what's going on


Hi, Bigdoug44 you may have a faulty turn signal module before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

2006 Suzuki boulvard C90T 1500 cc the F1 light red on why


Hi, Paco it should be noted that the reasons EFI lights constant or flashing, will or will not start, turns over or not conditions varies from the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work or event IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying bike down/crashes, rainstorms/bike washings just before EFI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin, also carry the appropriate jumper wire to access fault codes to reduce the risk of being stranded or towed, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Faulty switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets. For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Where is the oil filter on a 2009 Suzuki Boulevard C90T located?


The oil filter is located at the very front of the engine. It is below the battery, thus making it rather difficult to see. It is mounted in a horizontal position under the battery bracket.

You'll need to remove bolt (part #11), and probably come up with something to hold (part #14) from spinning while you do.
