My 2002 S/S Suzuki Volusia


Engine Features

Narrow 805cc, eight-valve, liquid-cooled, 45 degree V-twin engine tuned for low-rpm power with peak torque at only 2500 rpm
High engine torque provided by a single 34mm carburetor, short-duration cam timing and tuned dual exhaust system
Crankshaft with 45 offset crank pins reduces engine vibration for a more comfortable ride
Digital ignition system with 3-D timing maps and throttle position sensor provide optimum ignition timing
Five-speed transmission features a high fifth gear ratio for relaxed highway cruising
Low-maintenance shaft final-drive system is clean-running with low torque reaction
Pulsed-secondary air-injection system introduces air into the exhaust ports to ignite unburned hydrocarbons and reduce emissions

Chassis Features

Fuel tank-mounted speedometer with LCD fuel gauge, clock and indicator lights - cables and wiring are carefully routed for a detailed look
Cradle-type steel frame with color-matched sidecovers, fenders and fuel tank, plus numerous chrome-plated parts
Wide, comfortable seat with low 27.6 inch seat height - passenger seat can be removed for a bobbed rear fender appearance
Wide handlebars and forward-mounted footpegs and foot controls for more comfort around town or on the highway
Telescopic forks with polished aluminum sliders and polished stainless steel stanchion-tube covers
Long 33 rake angle and 65.2 inch wheelbase provide a smooth, comfortable ride
Link-type rear suspension connects to a truss-style swingarm and a single shock absorber with 7-way spring preload adjustment
Traditional spoke wheels with chrome-plated rims carry a wide 130/90-16 front tire and 170/80-15 rear tire
