Question about 2003 Suzuki GZ 250 Marauder

2000 Suzuki Marauder 805cc Slow Crank on startup!

I put a brand new battery in this bike assuming that it cranked slow because the battery was bad. Now with a new batter installed and fully charged it still turns over ,unless the engine is warmed up, then the bike turns over more quickly like it should. On colder days I have a heck of a time getting it to turn over even though I hook it up to a trickle charger after each use. The bike runs great once started and warmed up, but this is getting old and I'm afraid to ride it past September because of the colder weather afraid it won't start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the proper weight oil in the bike, it's 10w-30 just like the top of the dipstick says. This bike has this problem year round 80 Degree day or 60 degree day the problem just gets worse when it's cold out. I think the started must be bad, but it's hard to say.

Sounds like the oil is thick. Do you know what weight oil was installed last? If there was 40 weight put in and its getting colder out it get thicker. You can change the oil to a 30 weight and change the filter to see if that helps.

Slow cranking on 805cc marauder is due to bad starter relay. the relay is not necessary and can be removed from cicuit by jumping yellow/black to yellow/green on the relay plug. the relay is behind left sidecover and is clearly marked starter relay.i did this on my 2000 805cc and it starts flauless now

Replaced the battery on my bike. Now I get no power at all. Connections have been double checked.


Ground or fusible link. If it is indeed a hot Battery put a test light on the negative side of the battery touch the positive side to see if it lights up. Move the ground down to the frame, touch the positive again to see if it lights up. if it does follow all the positive wires with the light, if doesn't light up hooked to the frame you have a bad ground.

I have a 1992 yamaha virago 1100 new battery will not keep charge once in motorcycle?


That happened to me last year on my virago 1100. Battery would fully charge, but not hold once in the bike. It was a brand new battery from GP Bikes. I took it back to the store and they checked the charge with their machine, which is better than mine. The battery was a lemon. They replaced it and the new one worked perfectly. But what a pain for a few weeks to figure out it was the battery and not the bike.

Have a load test done on the batter to check for failing cells. For diesels to start any thing less than a fully charged battery good battery is a waste of time as the engine needs fast RPM to heat the air to ignite the fuel and slow rpm's just doesn't cut it.

Flat battery


There are 2 possible causes here. Either there is a voltage drain from something on the bike or the battery is discharging on it\'s own accord. If it is a wet battery (ie non gel type) often when it is new and first acid filled some people make the mistake of quick charging them straight after filling. What then happens is the battery only gets a surface charge, so it will charge up to ie; 12.8 volts fully charged but have no cranking amps. Secret is to fill the new battery with acid then let it sit for an hour to get full penetration of the plates then slow charge it for 4 to 5 hours to get good battery performance and life.

Fuel relay


Short answer, your batter is bad. or is disCHARGED:
Long.:

wont crank?
no engine, cranks ,unless the starting system works.
unless pushed fast, like my car or i park on a hill and coast jump my car.(M/T tranny rule)

NO crank, is the true failure here:
slow Cranks are , bad battery , or a discharged battery , due to bad charging system or parked for 3 months or longer.

so ill assume its NO CRANK.
I turn the key TO START and the starter fails to CRANK.
the starter motor is dead. (key clue 1)
so i attach a set of jumper cables to my Caddy, running and this car
now cranks and RUNS (you left that out. above, huh? runs)

turnsover means nothing, because the engine starter turns over
and the engine can turn over and the engine can run,
once running the EFI system SUSTAINS runninng.
so there are 4 states there. (4 phases )

No cranks #1 reason to be slow , are a bad battery
so I charge that battery, and see how if it cranks , now?
it dont crank means a bad battery
it does work( crank) see how long it works.../?
if it dies again, or better, check the cars Alternator for by measuring
accross the battery terminals running , with any volt meter.
13.3 to 15vdc is a good alternator running the engine.
if NOT, the charge system is bad. (system)

On some cars the IMMO can block Cranking or for sure blocks
fueling after 2 seconds. So. watch the IMMO light on the dash.
Immo is the Immoblizer. option.

I have a Nissan 2400 pick up will not start. Turned over slow but started after pumping gas pedal. Now there's nothing when I turn the key. I checked the battery 11.7 volts. The lights come on. Bad...


You have low battery voltage. Normal 12volt batter should have almost 13 volts when fully charged. It's spring--check your battery cable ends / batter terminals. Got the white cancer growing? Remove and clean everything off and rinse with baking soda and water. Make the ends and terminals nice and shiny. Fully charge the battery and hook everything back up. To help stop the forming of the white cancer, use red/green felt pads or battery terminal spray. If your battery runs down again, take to NAPA and have them check your battery. If your battery is 5 years old or more you might need a new one.

Battery won't charge.


hello,

normally many cell phones requires 6-10hrs for its batter to fully charge up. also i have seen it where battery can be brand new but doesn't have enough juice to hold the charge.
now as far as red light on charger, remember even if you have 99% charged batter and you plug in the charger it will show you red light on phone/cradle.

FYI- all brand new phones are covered with 30 days of warranty replacement with new phone. after 30 days it covers upto 1 year from the date of purchase with refurbished phones.

In your case i think it is just the battery, try having your provider replacing new battery if no luck again then my suggestion will be to replace your phone with new battery with in 30 days.

TY
