    Thanks,
    yes, the fuel runs from rear carburetor as I could see in Service manual looks like that is air vent hose.
    What do you think , can I do it by my self kind of job or I should put my bike to the Suzuki shop?
    Also if I do that by my self, after cleaning job do I have to synchronize the carburetors?
    Thank you for help.

If you mean that fuel runs out of one of the vent lines, note that one of those lines is for overflow from the carb bowl. If this is what is happening, you might have corrosion or dirt making your float needle stick, and overflow fuel to that carb. It needs to be cleaned out by removing the bowl, float and float needle.

    With a good shop manual, if you are handy with tools, yes!
    You shouldn't have to re-sync, if you note all adjustment screws as to "how far out" they are while removing them. (As in air or fule mixture screws, turn them in while counting, I.E. 1 and 1/4 turn)

2000 Suzuki marauder 800 front carb top right hand side theres a hose sticking out on top? Need help, where does it go?


Hey Edwin,
You should have a hose (somewhere) that will fit that connection.. its either a vent. vacuum connection, or a carb to carb equalization connection.

Carburator leaks gas when cycle is started or running from what looks like vent hose?


Sounds to me like your float valve is obstructed by some debris. This is causing it to stay open and leak fuel. Better it leaks to your vent hose than it leaks in your engine and contaminates your oil.

You need a proper carb cleaning. Not some run in the gas tank sh*t. If the tank wasn't full when parked, chances are there is rust in the fuel system to get this out you need to disassemble the carburetor and thoroughly clean it.

Try not to ride the bike til you do this. It's a fire hazard.

Hi, Kayclarke198 and the usual suspects are:

2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, points/condenser ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.

Will crank and run for a second but stop then gas


Engine is flooding, need to pull the carbs and clean them. Carbs need to be taken apart, the jets removed and cleaned out. The low speed jets, the small ones, have a very small hole in them use a single bristle out of a wire brush to clean it out, do not make the holes any bigger. once you get the jets cleaned out, put em back in, reassemble the carbs, reinstall and have a good ride.

Fuel vent tube is leaking gas. The tube comes out of the bottom of the tank. When I blow air into the tube it doesn't bubble the gas in the tank and it sounds like the air is right there next to the filler...


Very possibly could have a hole, or rusted off of it's perch. Get a mirror and a flash light, and when the gas gets low enough, take a look in the tank.

Gas leak from carb drain hose


I had this same problem on my DRZ-110.
I took apart the carburator to clean everything out, but when i re-assembled it it started to leak gas out of the drain hose. Then i found out that the problem was that one of my gaskets were torn and were letting air in the drain which prevents it from being a vacuum, therefore causing gas to leak out.
I would first check the float & make sure it isnt stuck, then i would check all of the gaskets and make sure they arent torn, & replace the ones that are, even if theyre slightly damaged they can still let in air.
Your carb has to be 100% sealed & vacuumed to prevent any leaks & for it to work fine, so get those gaskets checked out
