    I just started work on a 1996 Suzuki intruder VS800. The cosmetics are in decent shape, but the rear rod bearing on the crank is toast.
    The thing is now in pieces in my garage, but I need to split the crankcase, which requires some of those wonderful specialty tools.
    If anyone knows where I can rent or borrow a flywheel (rotor) puller 50x1.5mm and a crankcase splutter in the Portland/Vancouver area, I would be very greatful.
    Aside from the bearing, I am planning on honing the cylinders, installing new rings, and taking care of some cosmetic stuff (mostly cleaning, polishing, painting) while I wait for parts to come in the mail.
    Also looking to replace the stock turn indicators with something that is a little nicer looking.

    I welcome any advice/input on the project!

    My first thought after reading this is why.
    When all is said and done you still have a intruder.

    Thanks for your help and support. Is this what I can expect from members of this forum?

    No, he's just having a bad hair day.crackup: (avatar)
    To each his own I say. But some may think it's a lot of work for a scoot you could fine petty cheap. Or find a busted bike with a good motor and do the swap?
    Is it your long lost love?, freebie?, or something along those lines?
    I know a guy that has a horrible 80's GS 1000 shaft drive:puke: and he'll never get rid of it cuz it was "pop's", so more power to him.

    P.S. We like pics. Most say "no pics, it didn't happen".....soooo...pics!

    I got it cheap and I wanted a project to keep me busy. I like color, the way it looks and how it feels when I hop on. Its my first motorcycle, but not my first engine project. I am looking forward to taking it for a spin. Folks that have them seem to be pretty happy with the performance and reliability. Here is a pic for you.
