Question about 2003 Suzuki VS 1400 Intruder

3 Answers

Hello. I have a 1999 Suzuki Intruder VS1400. Used fairly regularly, but by no means every day. Recently bike is stalling at low speeds, seemingly not as a result of the idle setting, which is fully turned up. Stall is not immediate, but you can feel the bike struggling for revs and then it dies, almost in slow motion. Bike turns over (with revs) and can still be ridden if you pay close attention to the revs. Still has normal power when running at higher speeds, but when you come off the accelerator you can feel the power draining. Recently changed oil. Air filters were cleaned about 400 miles ago. Carbs were rebuilt by previous owner (custom bike shop) as it had been sitting unused for a long period. It had issues for a long time (spluttering and stalling) but with tweaking and everyday use it became very reliable. As daily use has dropped it has again been suffering from some issues. Struggling for tools (custom seat when I bought it, so no seat back tool kit) but wondered if any relatively easy fixes for this? Cheers.

Check your carbs, tank, lines, fuel switch and pump. I have the same bike & same problem. Had to tare down EVERYTHING! Tank was nasty inside (use Metal-Rescue to clean), lines and carbs clogged. Be sure and clean fuel pump completely I found that mine wouldn\'t run because of stuff in it but acted like an electrical failure.
If you\'re really ambitious, toss all that plastic airbox stuff and replace with a couple of K&N canister filters. You\'ll need to fab some small parts but nothing that can\'t do in a garage or a regular auto shop.
And most important before you put a drop of new gas in the tank FUEL FILTER!

It sounds like its time to have the carbuerator cleaned more then likely you have some varnish build up in the idle circuit. I cant remember if that bike has a fuel filter in line from the tank but if it does I would recommend changing that first as it could simply be starving the motor of fuel at idle.
