Question about 2000 Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC

2 Answers

I purchased a 1998 suzuki intruder VL LC 1500 a couple months ago. My problem is I was only getting 23 MPG running 93 octain or higher fuel. It also had a set of bastardized cobra straight pipes on it. I purchased stock exhaust for it and had my mechanic install them and rebuild the carbs back to stock spec and jets. I still get 23 MPG, any ideas. Thanks Bill

    Since it had aftermarket pipes the carb jets were more than likely changed, You may need to see what size jets were installed and change them out

Carbs might have been drilled out to increase fuel flow with the aftermarket pipes.If that's the case pick up a couple of used carbs

Hi, Anonymous so you want to know how far you can go on reserve, the answer to that question is between you and your motorcycle, how fast you are going and the overall condition of your bike.
The best way to come up with a number is to wait until you are almost on reserve have someone follow you in another vehicle with extra gas and as soon as your low fuel warning light comes on or your main fuel tank runs empty causing you to move the fuel valve to reserve pull over and zero your trip meter. Proceed to ride in the majority of places you normally drive in at your usual speed. When you run completely out of fuel check your trip meter and that mileage is how far you can travel on reserve under normal conditions.
For additional peace of mind to establish maximum MPG on reserve when you get into a sticky situation where you don't know if you can make it to the closest gas station repeat the above procedure with the following exceptions.
1. Drive in the highest gear possible at the lowest rpm without lugging the engine.
2. If you are on a flat level freeway or open road get up to 60 MPH pull in the clutch hit the kill switch shutting the engine off and coast until 20 MPH then put the kill switch to run and pop the clutch and repeat the process.
3. If there is a long downhill grade put the bike in neutral with the engine off and coast.
4. The best insurance to keep from getting stranded is:
a. Keep your bike finely tuned well maintained.
b. Always have a cell phone with you.
c. Invest in an "AAA" card.
