Question about 2000 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder
I have a 2000 Suzuki MArauder VZ 800 and I took it out for the 1st time today since putting it away for the winter. It started up 1st try with no problems. I let it warm up for 10-15 mins drove 2 blocks to the gas station to top off the tank. Stopped back at home and gave it another look over before heading out. Oil, gas,chain, lights, wheel bearings, tire pressure, etc. no problems. I headed out and about 2 miles down I noticed a gasoline smell while stopped at a light, I looked down to find gas pouring out from the bike. The bike kept running although there was some (minor) loss of power while accelertating, and some sputtering. The gas only leaked while the bike was running. It seemed to leak at the same pace whileindeling. I am new to motorcycle repair but I know my way around cars so I am not clueless, I need a point in the right direction here. Where should I start looking for the proble? Thanks in advance, any tips will help.
Its the carburetor need to be cleaned probably stuck float or needle seat old gas will do this becomes thick with age. next time you store it drain the carb and if you can fill the carb with carb cleaner then drain that away.
