Question about 2001 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder
This is for a 2000 Marauder. There is a fuel line that comes from the carburetor - I don't know if it is a drain line. I have tried to find where the other end goes but have not found anywhere for it to go. The Line is about 7 inches long and is open at the loose end. The bike runs but as soon as you hit the starter this line leaks, the odd thing - as soon as I plug the line with my finger the bike dies, but will start right up again. I would like to give more information but I am not up on carburetors.
I hope I have given enough information to have a working idea. Please let me know if there is more I can do to help.
I have a 2001 Marauder that is leaking right above the shut-off vale. The rubber tube that feeds travel through the shut-off vale has a clip but no screw and nut. I think this is the leak area. Where can I get a new clip and screw and nut? How can I get my hands around to tighten it?

Hi ...... By your description it sounds like a breather or overflow pipe. Try tapping (gently) the carb bowl with a piece of wood, hammer shaft etc ......... if that doesn't help, switch the petrol off at the tank/ petrol tap. Place a container (spray can lid ?) inder the carb bowl drain screw and unscrew (anti-clockwise). I suspect there maybe debris in the bowl and petrol isn't being stopped by valve/float. If you don't have an inline fuel filter fitted, have one installed, cheap & effective.
