You need to use relay and 25A fuse for the compressor + wire to the battery.

I'll try to attach my wiring picture.

Cannot put it here so there is email for you.

Accessories / Installing a compressor horn / klaxon

Hi all,
Has anyone installed a compressor horn on a VX800.  Probably needs a relay and a fuse. 
If you have, I would appreciate receiving the electrical schematic of your installation.

Many thanks in advance.  JUan.  -

Oh yeah, no more oil leak!!

Already put hundreds of kilometers on it just this week, clutch is still slipping but springs are on their way.

So the bike is leaking oil, and it's coming from under the panel on the left side of the engine, pretty sure. I "think" it's the oil seal for the clutch linkage. Anyone know what's common to leak under here? I cleaned it out with brake clean, but it's hard to see where it's coming from, but the front part of the inside of the panel has oil on it, so I'm gonna try to replace that oil seal, unless someone has a much better idea.

Other than that, she's a beaut.

After searching the forum a bit about clutch slipping, I decided to order the EBC CSK162 clutch spring kit, also ordered a gasket just in case. Hopefully that's enough and I don't have to replace the entire clutch pack. Springs going weak seems like a common problem anyways, so it's probably smart if I do end up buying a new clutch anyways.

Today was the day! I got my license and the bikes got it's plate! I've just been riding it all day and having fun, and in doing so discovering some issues I have to address. Clutch is slipping, and it's leaking oil, from what seemingly seems to be the middle split of the block underneath sadly. Oh well,  it runs!

I'll update a little bit of what has been going on.

Last time I mentioned I had gotten new tires, I got them mounted and balanced!

I rebuilt the rear master cylinder, I also rebuilt the rear and front calipers, the old pistons had some pitting in them.

I also replaced the seals on the front shocks, I was gonna replace the bushings but they sent me the wrong ones... At least they seal now, one of them was leaking quite badly.

Here you see the far too big bushing.

Next on the list: Fix clutch slipping, and find out how to stop that oil leak.

If anyone has any good ideas of what I should do, please don't hesitate to let me know :)

Looks a lot of bike for the money.  I guess if you put it on eBay you will get more than you are asking for it here.  Good luck with the sale.

Wife insisting that our garage is used for a car not my two bikes! Consequently selling my Suzuki VX800 as it's now time to let it go to someone who can enjoy it as much as I have over the last 14 years.

The detail its a black Suzuki VX800 originally from Germany (confirmed by Suzuki Germany) but imported into UK on an M plate.

It had 21K miles on the clock when I bought it in 2007 from a retired art teacher. Now has 33K miles. Regularly serviced and runs well. Bridgestone Battle-axe tyres. LED indicators (originals will be supplied with bike). Custom seat as original Suzuki seat notoriously uncomfortable! Has MRA Vario touring screen (smoked / clear). Givi back box and rack. Some cosmetic bits and pieces to tidy up (painting swinging arm, etc) which Id plan to do over Winter but looks better than on photos!

Currently SORN and needs MOT but runs fine so would not envisage any problems in passing MOT..

In Tyneside, UK. Collect only and cash on collection - 999 ovno

Test ride available - with full deposit in cash and proof of insurance.
Buy, Sell or Trade / Stock seat and pan for sale

Hi there

I bought a stock seat with the intention of putting on a Corbin seat. But after a long trip I decided the stock seat was fine. So, if anyone wants a stock seat - I have one. Pan is perfect. Seat has no rips or tears and only a bit of wear on the front two corners where it sits when you put it on the ground. I'll load photos if I can, or I can email them. I am in Minnesota and can UPS this. Price is $50 plus shipping.
