Suzuki Intruder 1400 power loss ..need help.

It's been a while since I posted here...

I recently purchase a 2004 intruder 1400 that has been sitting for 3 to 4 yrs. Bike is in mint condition with 700 miles. Ofcourse it wasn't starting and battery dead. So I replaced the batteries and had the carburetor (2) cleaned and retuned...tank was full of rust so that was also cleaned and fuel pet replaced. Shop go the bike started...but on throttle increase i don't see power comming from the bike it's like it stalls...then after riding a little..when u give half throttle on high rpm suddenly it gets a rush of power..but once released or change gear the mph start to drop. Even if you increase throttle it seems to drop the mph...it takes few minutes before it kicks again. The shop i had the carbs done etcc..said the rear cylinder is little rough..so it might just take some time.

The shop was close to my house and couldn't take it to Motorcycles Unlimited...so here i am after few hundred down ..i am still with no running bike.

I drove today and when i tried increase the throttle..it started to loose power and finally died..restarted and it turned turned but will not start..

Any suggestions from the guru's.. hope someone with a shop :o)

The Intruder 1400's have a funky 2 step synch process; 1 step involves the idle, the other power delivery.
Take it back to the shop that did the work and have them follow the manual on the synch process.
Be forewarned, it can be a .

Thanks patrick for the input, do you feel from the symptoms i have described it has to do with the engine..or the carburetors haven't been tuned properly...

I will see if i can get the bike back to that shop...how much you charge for retuning the carbs..i hate to spend more that what i have already spent on this ..but lmk plz.. thanks

When I started working on bikes in an independent bike shop back in the 90's, the guy that was teaching me a bunch of stuff said "if someone ever asks you to work on an Intruder, just run".
