Question about 2000 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder
I drilled the baffles out and did not rejet. My bike has had problems starting. I took my battery to auto zone and they told me my battery was good. When I put the bike on my charger it starts right up. But if I turn the bike off it will not start again even though the battery is charged. When I jump the bike and get it going again, it will just stall out as I'm riding and won't start again unless I jump it again. While riding the bike will backfire really loud and then stop.
Check that the side stand is returning to the foldfed position,, they are known to work lose and imobilise the starter mech

It sounds like the battery may be bad in spite of Auto-Zone's pronouncement. The connectors to the battery may be bad enough to make a poor connection to the battery posts. Is the battery water level up to the line in each cell?
Re-jet one step bigger as the baffle removal will make it run lean.
