Question about Suzuki Motorcycles

1 Answer

I just bought a 2001 Suzuki Intruder 1500 LC. The engine revs really high and stays there once the bike has been running for a bit. Someone said that the engine is getting too much air and I need to replace the air intake gasket. I do not know where it is at on this bike any help would be great.

Haynes manuals are the best to learn your ride inside out,every nut,bolt and direction to go. Even if you have never done one. Yard tapes use it when they get stomped. So beat em to it you'd be surprised in how simple ,maybe a pain in your short hairs but theory is...you can add to something,but you can't take away from it to work.

SOURCE: vibration

The carbs should be synchronized every 20k miles. If you are having a roughness in idle then I would recommend the carbs being synched. If the problem is at higher RPM's I'd check to see if the motor has a harmonic dampener that can be adjusted. This often resolves vibration issues. I'm just not sure if this bike has one. These big bikes usually have some sort of adjustable dampening device internally.
I'd also like to have you check the motor mounts. This is a common problem if your bike has any rubber in the motor mounts. The rubber wears or even breaks and you often cannot see it until you actually try to remove the mount. Often they will fall apart in your hands.
These big motors all vibrate a bit so many of the manufacturers have realized that adding modified motor mounts is helpful.

SOURCE: 1991 CR 500 (reving to high on idle high serges)

take some wd 40 & spray around the carb boot while running to see if the idle drops for a few seconds. sounds like you have an intake side air leak causing a lean condition making the motor rev high.

My suzuki intruder 2001 1500 battery would not hold charge so i bought new battery. after two weeks and on road trip the bike battery did not have enough juice to turn engine over. took battery back and...


Check it is charging. The voltage of the battery should be about 14 volts with the engine running at just above idle. If it is lower than this (which I suspect) you will need a new regulator or rectifier. to identify which of these you need will require a visit to an auto electrician.
