Gas leak on my Suzuki VZ800 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.

1998 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder running on one cylinder


Hi, Michelle you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue. Multi carb banks should be bench "SYNC"
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes, multi-cylinder engines should be within 10-15% of each other if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or its counterpart for integrity.

I have a 2001 Suzuki 800 Marauder motorcycle. when it gets warmed up after a long ride. When I turn it off, restart it and put it in 1st gear it stops the motor. what,s causing this.


Many of the Suzuki's including Boulevard, Intruder and others have cut off switches in the kick stand. As long as the stand is down the engine will die when shifted into neutral.

Make sure you engine is hot to the touch before you ride away. After its warmed up make sure your chock is off or your motor will stall because it is too rich when warm.
