If replacing master or slave, bench bleed the new unit prior to installation.

If just bleeding air out after routine service, apply lever a few times, hold in squeezed position, and open bleeder valve to release air/fluid for a second or two. Close bleeder before releasing clutch lever, or else air will be sucked in, not bled out. Start bleeding closest to the reservoir, working down through each connection or bleeder vavle, finally bleeding the last air out of lowest point near clutch slave. It's just like bleeding hydraulic brakes, except completion can be Much more time-consuming. If necessary, apply slight vacuum to lowest (opened) bleeder, while keeping res. full of fluid.

Once fluid flows or drips with no air present, your sys. is bled. CLose bleeder, and top off fluid. Let me know if these notes are not clear, or if you have additional questions. Thanks, TT

Try bleeding the clutch or freeing the clutch plates.

Your front wheel is not something that you want to take a chance on not being installed correctly. It sounds to me like you're missing a spacer. You should be able to tighten The axle up to 90 pounds and it should still move freely. If a spacer is missing or on the wrong side of the bike it will stop the wheel from spinning. Be safe !

Hi, Ray and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test, your battery may show 12.5 volts but has little or zero amps and must be replaced.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or CDI or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

First check all battery cables and connections, no one may look loose , heated or oxydated.
Jump the starter relay with a big diameter cable, if startermotor runs normally, replace the relay.
Check the amperage starter takes when starting. if it's over 100A, then your starter or your engine is stuck.

check main fuse

Suzuki VS 1400... | Answered on Aug 10, 2015


remove the battery cover and then you can get to the 2 battery cables. remove those I do the ground first then the positive. pull the battery out and replace and install reverse order. before installing the covers. check the bike starts and the 2 battery cables are tight. those should be about 15 pounds of torque. which is not a lot. since it does not do anything but hold the wires it does not need the same tightness as a tire lug nut.
