If the gearbox oil is REALLY dirty it can affect shifting.The only other thing will be a shift fork going bad. Replacing a shift fork is not generally a do-it-yourself project. The dealer will charge $750 or more. Sure do hope you have dirty oil...

I have a suzuki intruder vl 125 and recently when waiting at a junction the engine has just died i have to keep the revs up to avoid stalling. also sometimes whilst moving the engine sounds like it dies....


the stalling is due to the rectifier (its a box under the plastics on the bike and has fins on it) if not this then possibly an air/fuel mixture problem but as with my old vl it was the rectifier

I have a suzuki rm 125 1994 model when i pull the clutch lever in to put it in gear the clutch doesnt work t jst crunches into gear


Adjust the clutch cable to allow about 1/4" free play at the end of the clutch handle. Don't put the bike in gear until the rpms are near idle speed. The clutch is working fine if the bike does not lurch forward when going into gear at idle speed. Dirty, gritty oil in the gearbox can make the clutch grab. Consider changing oil if grabbing is the problem. The "crunch" you hear is the slider gear engaging into the driven gear. The higher the engine speed when being put into gear the louder the crunch. The slider gear engaging "dogs" can break. Crunching into gear is hard on the gears.

Post a comment to let me know how you come out on this.

Hard to select neutral


Difficulty in selecting neutral is most likely due to clutch drag. Does the bike jump forwards when you select first gear? This could be due to dry or wrongly adjusted clutch cable. Another though less likely cause could be weak clutch springs or a worn clutch basket. Aim for about 5mm free play at clutch lever.

Lack of power and low revs


Remove and clean the carbs. Remove and clean the fuel petcock water trap then put everything back together. Try the bike now.
If still bad then take it to the shop and ask for a compression check. You may have some burned valves.
