Question about 1999 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder
Posted by Anonymous on
1) Vehicle needs movement weekly to keep lubircants/gaskets from drying out. That doesn't mean you can't take out the battery every week if you have the stamina.
2) Walmart sells battery chargers. But you need the battery tested and will likely have to buy a battery anyway.

Possibly you need to recharge your battery. if you set it on the bear floor, it has a tendency to draw down the charge in the battery. It also will loose the charge if it was low wneh you retired it for the winter.

SOURCE: cannot find the battery location
I have the same bike that you do. To get at the battery you need to remove both the seat (2 bolts, 1 screw (at back)), AND also remove the tool kit housing. The battery sits behind the tool kit, and so to slide it out you need to remove both halves (front and back) of the tool kit housing. You have to take the seat off in order to get at one of the screws holding one of the battery terminals in place.
When I do this, I find the hardest parts to be to get at the screw attached to the battery on the side of the bike opposite the tool kit; not such an easy fit. The other part I find hard for some reason is getting the tool pack to fit back into the tool kit housing once you reattach it to the bike.
I am seriously thinking about attaching a "pigtail connector" to the battery for easy charging during the winter. I understand that most trickle chargers come with this kind of accessory.

vacuum opens the fuel tank petcock. The carbs have thier own means ofmetering fuel in the yhemselves. So, I'd say the carbs need to be pulled and cleaned, all jets should be cleared of corrosion and float levels ck'd if equiped. good luck.

The float in the carburetor is stuck. It will require removal and cleaning to provide a permanent solution. Try striking the offending carburetor with a hard object,(screwdriver handle or such) if the flow stops, that is the problem.

Check the level of the fuel in the float chamber, it could be low.
You can also check the solenoid valve ....turn the ignition 'on' and you should hear a click sound at the s/valve, this proves the valve to be openning ones the ignition is turned 'on'.
Hope this helps!
