    Hey all, recently bought a Suzuki Intruder as my first bike and I'm looking to learn some basic maintenance. First thought was to learn the basic oil change. The previous owner was using Castrol Activ 15w50 mineral oil, but the manual says to use 10w40. I had already bought a 10w40 Penrite...

    I recently bought my first bike, a 1989 Suzuki Intruder 750 however there was a gas leak problem due to a patch on the tank. I purchased a new tank (listed as a 1990) off of eBay thinking that the gas cap off of the old tank would be easily swapped onto the new tank, however, this is not the...

    New to riding and new to motorcycles in general. I scored this 88 Intruder for $400 and I am in love with the lifestyle all ready. After battling with the battery for almost 2 days( the location of the battery box is directly under the frame with wires too short). Anyhow, I have changed the...

    So my brother in law recently gave me his 86 intruder for nothing which is awesome. It's been riding well for a few weeks until the day I put oil in bad stuff happened. I'm positive it was the right oil, sae 10w-40, and I filled it to the full mark. Later that night I cranked it and let it warm...

    Hello guys and gals. Newbie to this, but thought I'd see if anybody has any advice. I have a 99 Intruder, only 17K miles. Used fairly regularly (once or twice a week) but seldom goes very far. Had some issues when I bought it, as it had been sitting unused for a while. Custom geezer I got it...
