Question about Suzuki GZ 250 Marauder Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 1999 GZ250 Suzuki Marauder. It has recently had a lot of charging issues (would work fine for about 300km then battery would be flat). After three trips to the bike shop, three batteries, a repaired stater and two regulators (the last of which and the most recent repair was a regulator from a GZ500). This seems to have solved the charging problems (I've managed about 650km without issue). However the bike sat for a week in mild weather conditions (20C) in a garage and it took ages to get it to start. The bike wanted to start and there seeemd plenty of life in it, but it just wouldn't start for about 15 minutes. Then I have no problems starting it for the rest of the day. The next morning I got it to start fairly quickly but it still took a couple of attempts.

The stator is to be checked.The battery voltage before and after driving.It should be checked.If the voltage is same,the stator is charging the battery.But if battery voltage decreases a lot after driving then it can be faulty stator causing this. Also check the fuel pressure and spark plugs.If the pressure is low it will take few attempts to start and if spark plugs are worn out or very old or got wet or moisture collected on spark plugs then it will take few attempts to start.Remove the terminals and clean then and reconnect.---------- This possibilities are to be checked,to troubleshoot the problem.This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

2003 Suzuki Gz250 high idle always. Turned white knob out all the way and it still idles high. Has auto choke. Any ideas?


Hi, Galen and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak.
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector
10. Multi carburetors not in sync.

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.

I am having problems keeping charge on my 2000 Suzuki Marauder GZ250. Would this be the alternator?


Instead of a blind suspicion it will be good to have the confirmation done on the bike charging system. Use a multimeter to check the voltage with the engine reved. The voltage must go up to stay above the level of the battery voltage. If so the alternator should be good, if not the alternator votage ( AC)and the rectification/regulation must be checked. Once the battery charge is establised the battery drain current must be checke on switch OFF. Check if there is any stray voltage reducing the voltage, if so trace to find / disconnect the suspected circuit.
