Can anyone advise me on what (if any) the main differences are between the various models within the VS Intruder range? I live in the UK and own a 1996 VS600. over here the VS800 and VS1400 were also original imports but you occasionally see other sizes such as the VS750 which have been imported as used bikes. I am aware that generally speaking all parts within the range with the exception of those for the VS1400 tend to be interchangeable as the only difference I am aware of is the actual cylinder capacity. some of the models also have letters signifying a variant after the actual size (such as GL) I have just managed to purchase an original Suzuki service manual which I will hopefully find benficial when working on my bike. the Manual is for a 1988 VS750 GL J. it was avaiable at a very good price and so I snapped it up! Although I feel sure the majority of what is contained in the manual will be the same I would appreciate it if anyone here can inform me of anything which is significantly different as I would hate to get something important like torque settings wrong! any information would be very gratefully recieved. My bike is getting on a bit in years now (aren't we all!) and despite its very low mileage (less than 10,000 so far) it will require increasing amounts of maintenance as time and miles go on and as money is tight I need to attempt as much maintenance as I can myself in order to continue to enjoy riding her.
