Question about 2000 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder

1 Answer

Hey, my 2000 Suzuki VZ800 Marauder does not start up right away. I have to take the choke all the way out and then rev it up high for a couple minutes and then drive it for the first mile or so with the choke half way out otherwise it will die. This generally happens every morning when I first go to start it regardless of the temperature outside. Any ideas as to what I can do to fix this? Thanks, Doug

This is fairly normal for the model Suzuki you have. Because of the manual choke, of course you have to do this by hand as you are doing. Newer models have automatic chokes.

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.
