Push the spacer between the bearings off to one side. Get a chisel or an old screw driver and tap the inner race of the bearing out from the opposite side. Save the spacer. Flip the wheel over and tap out the other side. Grind the outer edge off one of the old bearings and place it over the new bearing. Tap on the old bearing to drive the new bearing into place. You may have to finish the install with a chisel on the outer race. Alternate tapping from side to side being careful not to damage seal. Flip the wheel over put the spacer back into the wheel and tap the new bearing into place so that it barely touches the spacer. The bearings should spin freely, but should not bind (inner races pushing too hard against spacer will cause binding). If you install too tightly reach through the wheel and tap on the opposite bearing only enough to stop the binding. Press in the seals and reinstall the wheel on the bike.

I believe the tank is held on after the bolts are removed by rubber pucks at front wiggle ..to the rear ..1st remove the gas line...

You do not need to alter anything except the chain, increasing the tooth on the front sprocket and decreasing the tooth on the rear will give you more top end, remember more teeth longer chain required, less teeth shorter chain!!

A model number would help but usually the ignition key unlocks the seat.

Check any and all Battery cables for corrosion or looseness. A lot of times this can be due to corrosion or a bad ground. If the fuses are ok and the battery is good then this may be the problem. Also have the battery load tested, even though the battery has 12.8 volts it could have bad cells in it and cause this problem also.

The first problem happens in 3 cases:
1 - when the gears aren't properly shifted - there are multiple ones engaged (or better said, partially engaged) so the transmission is locked and it stalls the engine. Simple test to see if it's this problem: without starting the engine shift in first and try to push the bike - if you encounter an excessive resistance you will know that the shifter mechanism needs adjusting.
2 - if the idle is too weak or the mixture too lean the smallest additional effort is enough to kill the engine - you will have to check the carburetors and the air filter
3 - the kill switch (the one that prevents the starting of the engine in any other position than neutral) is faulty - replace it
The second problem is caused by a faulty electrical contact - start searching for it from the kill switch and then the contact key switch.

The description fits with a lean air/fuel mixture; more air than the amount of gas that is going to the engine really needs. With the laws Congress enacted several years ago, the only people who are supposed to be working on anything that can affect the air/fuel ratio of our motor vehicles are the certified mechanics trained to perform that kind of work. (Thank you, EPA.)

The official recommendation is to take the Suzuki to your local Suzuki dealer. Sorry.

Hi and welcome to the site,

There is no separate fuel filter for the VL, VS and VZ series. The only fuel filter is an integral part of the fuel c0ck that attaches to the tank. Inside is a tubular screen attachment that covers the fuel outlet port.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

A tech needs to hear and see the machine to determine the source of the sounds. Need to perform a process of elimination of checks to offer an accurate diagnosis.
Use the below listed charts to try and diagnose the problem yourself.

Abnormal Engine Noise:
IC igniter trouble
Carbon built up in combustion chamber
Fuel poor quality or incorrect
Spark plug incorrect

Piston slap:
Cylinder/piston clearance excessive
Cylinder, piston worn
Connecting rod bent
Piston pin, piston holes worn

Valve noise:
Engine not sufficiently warmed up after lash adjuster installation
Hydraulic lash adjuster damaged (worn, seizure, or spring broken)
Air in hydraulic lash adjuster
Metal chips or dust dammed in hydraulic lash adjuster
Engine operated in red zone
Valve spring broken or weak
Camshaft bearing worn

First things first, change the oil and hope that fixes itl even if it isn't, you really should do it anyway so there's not much downside to giving it a try. The wrong quantity or grade can cause engine noise like you desribe. If it was sitting for a long time, the oil could welll have degraded as well.

Hi, Jonathan 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.

Hi, Frank and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely drained or faulty battery.
2. Faulty regulator/rectifier or high output coil.
3. Faulty power valve, solenoid or installation.
4. Clogged air filter or exhaust.
5. Cracked or incorrect float level.
6. Float needle is not seating.
7. Faulty reed valve.

I’d guess the gas is bad first, either old or there’s water condensation in the tank. Drain it, you may to drop the bowl off the carburetor and clean it.
