Suzuki LS650 Savage / Boulevard S40 Troubleshooting

The Suzuki LS650 Savage, also known as the Boulevard S40 in some markets, is a popular lightweight cruiser motorcycle. While it generally has a reputation for reliability, as with any vehicle, there can be common issues reported by riders.

Carburetor Issues: Some riders have reported carburetor-related problems, such as clogged jets or issues with the fuel mixture. Regular cleaning and maintenance of the carburetor can help prevent these issues.

Electrical System: Over time, electrical components may experience wear or corrosion. Issues with the electrical system, such as problems with the starter or charging system, have been reported by some riders.

Rust and Corrosion: Depending on the climate and storage conditions, some LS650 Savage motorcycles may be prone to rust and corrosion, especially in areas like the exhaust system. Regular cleaning and application of protective coatings can help mitigate this.

Starter Clutch Noise: Some riders have reported noise from the starter clutch. While this may not necessarily indicate a critical issue, it’s something that some owners have noted.

Oil Leaks: Oil leaks, particularly around gaskets and seals, have been reported by a few riders. Regular inspection of the engine and addressing any leaks promptly is important.

Vibration: The single-cylinder engine design can result in noticeable vibrations, especially at higher speeds. Some riders may find this characteristic less comfortable compared to multi-cylinder bikes.

Rear Shock Absorbers: The stock rear shock absorbers may not provide the most comfortable ride for all riders. Upgrading to aftermarket shock absorbers is a modification that some owners consider for improved suspension.

Regular maintenance, prompt attention to any issues, and following Suzuki’s recommended service intervals can contribute to a positive ownership experience.
