Question about 2003 Suzuki GZ 250 Marauder
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.
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
