Suzuki Boulevard M50 / Intruder M800 turn signal swap

Boulevard / Intruder turn signal project

Description: swapping the original Suzuki Boulevard / Intruder turn signals to smaller LED ones I’ve never cared for the ice-cream-scooper-with-oranges-at the-end look that most cruiser turn signals have. I prefer much smaller ones, but given the fact that turn signals are primarily safety devices I would not want anything that are actually worse than the…

Suzuki Boulevard / Intruder shaft drive rust issue

Descprition: Suzuki Boulevard M50 / Intruder M800 shaft drive rust issue Well, crap! I decided to take a look inside the shaft drive tube, because of the potential rusting issue this model has (Both M50 and C50). Turns out I should have done this immediately after getting the bike. The lower end was baked in…

First sign of trouble – Fork seal leaking

The bike has worked perfectly (as it should with those miles) so far. Now at roughly 11 000 kms or 6835 miles I noticed the right side fork seal leaking a bit. Nothing major by the looks of it. I really don’t know how long this has been going on, but I guess something has…

Suzuki Boulevard M50 / Intruder M800 underseat connector

Mystery plug under the seat

It turns out there is no electrical gremlin on the bike. I’m just stupid. For some reason I assumed that the “empty” plug under the seat might be an AUX power source. I haven’t been able to find one on this model. Apparently the previous model had one inside the headlight bucket. Comment below if…

Fuse box location for 2010-current Intruder M800 / Boulevard M50

In my search for a possible electrical gremlin I needed to access the fuse box. Having left the owners manual at the office I expected to still find it easily (as one usually does). After removing panels here and there I wasn’t finding anything. Even removed the battery just in case. My Google search came…

Tank cover Suzuki Boulevard M50

Check for rust under tank cover

Another OCD thing, but I hate rust. I was going through the bike and took of the tank cover. I noticed that the mounting bolt holes had rusted and created pools of rust buildup under the cover / on top of the tank. No biggie, but I rather not have that there. I cleaned the…
