Rim stickers for Boulevard / Intruder

Started experimenting with rim decals/tapes/stickers or what ever you are supposed to call them. I tried different color combinations, but white lettering against the grey rim looked the best. Bright red/yellow/green might also work, but then you would want some of that color somewhere else on the bike too. Anyway, I measured the rims and…

Fast blinking fix for LED turn signals

Description: easy fix for fast blinking / hyper flash turn signals on a Suzuki Boulevard M50 The new LED blinkers were a bit busy with the stock relay. I don’t see why one couldn’t ride with them as they were, but curiosity got the better of me and I wanted to see if the fix…

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…

Inverted saddlebag supports

Description: mounting inverted saddlebag supports on the Suzuki Boulevard M50 / Intruder M800 Ok, ok, hear me out first. I hate the look of a sissy bar, especially the one I have. I could just barely stand the one I had on my Yamaha Bolt, but this one is far too “chromey”. The saddlebags that…

USB Charging plug

Desciption: USB power plug installation on Suzuki Boulevard M50 / Intruder 800 Installed a Burnsmoto USB plug for the M50. I’ve installed the exact same kind of plug on at least 4 of my previous bikes and it has always worked AND lasted without fail. The unit is as simple as it gets. It connects…

Boulevard M50 seat cowl

Because I’m riding solo 99% of the time AND because the passenger seat kind of ruins the lines of the bike, I bought a seat cover for the bike. The item itself hardly warrants any mounting instructions, but in case someone is interested it’s a 2 bolt job. It’s part number: 45500-39820-YVB if you want…

Phone Mount for Suzuki Boulevard 800

Description: Phone mount for Suzuki Intruder 800 / Boulevard 800 I’ve been using this same mount for 3 consecutive bikes now. It’s chinese made and therefore relatively cheap (around  $15). I ordered mine on eBay. Search for “GUB G-86 phone holder” . The GUB mount is made from machined aluminium and powder coated black. The…

Protecting the tank

Description: Tank protection tape for Suzuki Intruder 800 / Boulevard 800 I’m a bit OCD with silly stuff like this, but I hate getting marks on my bike from general use when it can be easily avoided. Most motorcycles have the seat designed so that eventually it rubs away the paint from where the tank…
