Hi, Afrhinoret your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on startup is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on startup may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on startup is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

Tip

#1 Tip


When all else fails, read the Owner's Manual and the Service Manual, in that order. As men, we tend to think we should know how to do it, that we were born with these skills in our DNA. Not! Take some time and read.

Check the connections on your battery. If they aren't tight you will be drawing too much power to do the things your bike normally does, this will blow fuses especially on the high power systems such as the starter motor.

Hello...from your comment it sounds like your bike needs a valve adjustment. The "hollow" sound in the exhaust and the powerband loss is usually a good indication of this. Have you had them adjusted lately? This first adjustment should be done at 5000 miles and then every 7500 miles there after.
The settings are:
Intake .003 - .005
Exhaust .007 - .009
Always set valves on a COLD engine.

I hope this helps...good luck with your bike.

According to the owners manual: 29psi for the front tire and 36 psi.
But, most stock tires themselves indicate they are 40psi tires. A quick reading through multiple threads indicates most riders follow the tire manufacture due to the ride feeling "mushy" at a lower psi.

Sounds like a faulty connecting rod at it's beginning. This knocking will escalate with use to louder knocking.Take off the cylinder head's cover, the camshafts and the chain tensioner to check them for damage. If they are ok it would be wise to proceed to an overhaul repair and check everything inside and replace the connecting rod with a new one.

My check engine indicator came on with the water symbol. Cannot find owners manual and no store's are open. What should I check and how do I check it?

Suzuki Boulevard... | Answered on Oct 31, 2011


Yes but not recommended, as it may spike the regulator and cause it to stop charging.
Better to check battery voltage with a multi meter.
around 12v engine stopped , and will rise when engine is started and revved to 13 or14v
