In Chiang Mai my Suzuki Intruder VS800 has been blowing black smoke out one cylinder at idle for a while and just doesn't run right even after tune ups, the bike runs like it gets hit my a turbo at mid revs. Both pipes are black and sooty. It was played around with and modified previously so don't know if they played with the jets etc. Other day though had petrol smelling oil pour out of my rear cylinder vent tube. Not sure if yet another useless mechanic forgetting to put back the tube from carb to air cleaner helped. Basically I need a mechanic that knows what he is doing to go over it and see how bad it is, electrical, valve seats rings etc. Pipat doesn't want to play with it any more, Joes told me a while back that I would have to wait 6 months to book it in and that it would be seriously, seriously expensive. A visiting mechanic friend reckoned it was an electrical problem, coil or engine management, but it does have spark. Anyone know a mechanic that actually knows what he is doing and doesn't see me as his retirement plan? Thanks if anyone can help, I'd really like to actually get to ride this bike! Cheers.
