  2. Parts Identified
    I've been trying to figure out the thread needed for the front screws to attach the Rear Pillion seat on my 1997 Suzuki Marauder VZ800. Suzuki is no help, the manual says that its part # 01550-0612A (I think). I cannot find the thread size for that anywhere online, was hoping to just run to the...

    I bought a 1983 Suzuki gs650, I was told it needed the carbs rebuilt and a starter. So I rebuilt the carbs and got a starter and new battery, only to find out the starter relay was dead (checking connections with a multimeter) so I replaced that as well. The starter switch on the handlebar won’t...

    I just picked up two bikes. The BMW I used to have became mine again, but needs work before I get it back on the road. Until then I am doing little short trips on the Suzuki DR Z400S getting my feel for two wheels back.

    Hi all, nice to great you, I'm a new rider, that just bought his first used motorcycle. It is a 2002 Suzuki Bandits 1200s, that was modified ( but not sure the extent of modification). I have some strange problems with simply starting the engine. I have no idea how to make a diagnostic and...

    Hello, I have two projects I'm currently a part of. My own personal project bike is a '72 Suzuki TS90 Suitcase that I'm looking to convert to electric (It was a parts bike destined for the junkyard; don't kill me). I am also helping a friend source parts for an '84 Honda VT500 Shadow that he's...

    I've got a 1975 TS75. The carburetor is giving me fits. I've looked for replacements, but can't find anything. Does anyone know of an aftermarket carburetor that would fit the TS75? Thanks

    I recently crashed and while doing repairs i noticed the throttle is stuck. It wont turn at all. The bike had to be pushed while in gear to get it out of the road since the clutch leverhad fallen off. That may be the cause of the problem, but do you guys have any idea of the solution? TIA

    Hi, hope you are doing well. I have a question regarding the Suzuki Bandit bikes as I am very new to this lineup and I am interested in going for one. Where I live, the Suzuki Bandit 250 is quite common. The Bandit 250 bikes can be found in 2 models. One is called the Bandit 250 S and the...

    Hi, I'm thinking of getting myself a 2 stroke 250cc bike and in my local market I'm limited to bikes from the 70s, 80s and 90s made by Japanese manufacturers. I have an interest in getting something like the Suzuki RMX 250. On paper it looks quite powerful for a 250. However before I go...

    Hi guys and girls. Really glad to have found and joined this great community! I am currently looking (to no avail) for a Suzuki GZ125 Marauder service manual. The ones on ebay are crazy prices and I was wondering if anyone had a PDF file for one. Regards, Sniped90.

    I was out riding my 2000 Suzuki Marauder VZ800 and stopped at a gas station. I had it shut off for less than a minute and it wouldn’t start back up. It wouldn’t turn over or anything, just dead. All of the lights would come on, neutral light, blinkers, etc. We’re thinking it is the killswitch...

    Have been riding 45 years, any time spent on two wheels is time spent doing what I love to do. Living in Colorado have some of the most breath taking scenic rides of any place I know of, winding mountain roads that require you to pay attention, but are pure joy to travel on. Presently riding a...

    I'm attempting to rebuild a 1974 Suzuki RL250 Exacta. The issue: I'm struggling to accept that the floats do not attach. Obviously they do have UP printed on one side, and the carb diagram shows that they just kind of sit there. Weighing against all that is the observation that the carb body...

    So I want to get a new bike, currently I have a 2014 FZ6R which is a very upright and comfortable ride. I know I either want a Suzuki GSXR 600 or a Yamaha FZ-09 but I can't decide which to get. Money isn't really the problem I can find both within my budget the only thing that concerns me about...

    Hi all, Maybe i'm just paranoid or i'm not used to mechanical vs hydraulic lifters, but when I hit the accelerator hard on my GS550ES around 4100ish rpm, the bike makes a fairly loud rapping/tapping sound that doesn't really sound like normal valve noise. This lasts all the way up to 6500ish...

    I'll try to keep this short and to the point. I purchased a 2002 Suzuki VS800 Intruder with about 7500mi 3 weeks ago. I upgraded from a 2004 Honda Rebel. Riding the Suzuki felt amazing, and I was finding every possibility to ride it and enjoying it. Then came the problem about a week ago. I rode...
