2000 Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC key broke off in the fork lock

I have the same bike. Mine didn't come with a fork lock key, so I've never locked mine. If this works for you, you can decide whether or not you want to go further about repairing/replacing the lock cylinder.

First of all, you'll probably have to rotate the handlebars slightly to take pressure off of the locking mechanism. Then take a pair of small needle-nose pliers and try rotate the lock cylinder, all the while slightly rotating the handlebars. If you can get it unlocked that way, you're golden.

The video on 7 tricks to remove a key makes a lot of sense to me, if you haven't looked at it, I recommend it. With patience and a "light hand" I think you'll get it out.

What is the fork oil capacity of a sv650 2002

This is Suzuki standard for a Pointy, sure someone will be along soon to say if Curvy is the same or not. Start at the standard air gap then see how it feels from there.

Front fork oil capacity (each leg) :
490 ml (16.56/17.25 US/Imp oz) for SV650
488 ml (16 .49/17.18 US/Imp oz) for SV650S

Fork oil level :
92 mm (3 .62 in) for SV650
94 mm (3.70 in) for SV650S

2008 fxdl lowrider lost key and forks locked any way to unlock got new after market switch to install

Simplest way is to go to a dealer, give him the VIN number and get the correct key to fit both lock and ignition switch. A new set of keys is cheaper than a steering lock and ignition key, even aftermarket ones.

Remove ignition 1996 Honda Shadow 1100

Remove the top yoke/ fork clamp nut and clamp bolts, then the handle bar clamps, remove circlips from fork tops if it has any (remove fork caps if their diameter is larger the that of the fork tubes leave if thay are the same) slide the top yoke off past steering lock unclip switch wiring coupler.
The ignition switch will probably be in with saftey screws or snap off saftey torque bolts, remove with saftey screw tool or drill off toqure bolts

Fork lock locked up won't unlock

I don't know if this will help. It was sent to me by a friend of mine and I've never tried the procedure. I do not work on these ignition switches and fork locks. This is for a newer model but it may help. Good Luck. Steve

Here's the procedure to remove the IGNITION /LIGHT KEY SWITCH AND FORK LOCK for a 2005 FLHT/C/U or FLTR (Domestic): Tools needed for removing ignition switch A T27 Torx, a small flat blade screwdriver, 7/8 wrench.

1. Remove the outer fairing and windshield

2. To remove the ignition switch, insert the ignition switch key and turn to the UNLOCK position. Leaving the key installed, rotate the knob to ACCESS. Depressing the release button at bottom (left side) with a small screwdriver, push key down and turn an additional 60 degrees in a counter-clockwise direction. Lift and remove knob.

3. Using a 7/8 wrench on flats, loosen switch nut and remove from threaded post of ignition switch housing. Remove collar and spacer.

4. Using a T27 TORX drive head, remove the two screws (with flat washers) that secure fairing cap to left and right sides of fairing.

5. Remove the switch position plate by pulling tabs from slots in faring cap. If necessary, raise the fairing cap slightly to facilitate removal.

6. With the forks turned fully to the left, disconnect the Fairing cap switch connector (105) 12-place Multilock (black), from behind right side of fairing cap. Depress the button on the plus side of the connector to pull apart the pin and socket halves.

7. Remove the fairing cap from the motorcycle.

8. Locate the ignition switch connector (33), 4-place Packard, at bottom of radio. Slide connector off anchor and separate pin and socket halves.
9. Remove the socket screws (with flat washers) and lift the switch housing from the upper fork bracket bore. Route the ignition switch connector to rear of inner fairing and remove switch housing from the vehicle.

Just bought a 96 Suzuki LS 650 Savage and I got two keys, one for ignition and one for gas tank. Neither of the keys fit the fork lock, should I have recieved a third key?

Considering the age of the bike, there may have been a lock change at some stage (especially fuel cap) however a second key should be for the fork lock, not the fuel cap. Ignition, seat and fuel cap are usually the same key. The site link below is for a steering lock for your bike...ckeck the key shape with yours. Hope this helps, second link is for your bike with diagrams and part names in sections, steering stem section provided the first link with the lock, cheers

Just looking for an easy step by step explanation on how to remove front forks on 2007 suzuki gsxr 750

Make sure bike is upright, fully supported and weight of the front wheel, you will need say 50CM min clearance below to remove forks. Remove calipers from discs (two bolts attaching to each fork), remove front wheel (two bolts on bottom of each fork then wheel spindle), remove fender/mudguard (possibly four bolts), Undo the bolts that hold the forks into the lower yoke/triple clamp, undo the upper yoke/triple clamp bolt to remove fork (one side at a time) refitting is reverse of removal, enjoy.
