Question about 2001 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder

1 Answer

Trying to start my 2001 vz 800: all lights come on and when I try to start it it turns over once then all the lights turn off. I put the battery on the charger and it said over 80% charged...could it be the stator or just a new battery...I did have to jump it a couple times last year.

Sounds like a tired battery, reduced CCA (cold cranking amps) have battery checked and replaced if needed. Hope this helped

I bet it's either the killswitch, the safety switch in the kickstand or the starter solenoid. I used to have one of these bikes and the kick stand switch was a pain...totally removed it.

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.

Sat in gaurage this winter,went to start in spring,battery not strong enough to start,had lights and a little crank over,bought new battery now nothing not even lights,what u think?

Check to be certain the new battery is good. They can be bad from the factory with an internal short. Next check the fuses. Chances are there is a blown fuse.

huh well that could be a number of things but it sounds like your motor is locked up try putting it in a high gear like 3-5 and pushing the bike to see if it rolls over if it does then it is not seized if it doesn't then you need new piston and rings at least if not more

How do u adjust the clutch on my suzuki vl800 its starting to slip its a cable clutch

There should be a finger adjustment screw, where the clutch cable meets the clutch lever. turn it outwards one turn at a time ,if more than five turns or reach end of thread ,your clutch will need replacing.

My bike won't turn over?

You either blew some fuses and or sometimes if you jump a cycle battery with a auto or truck you put to much amperage into the cycle system and it burns things up. Have a good look at the whole wiring harness.Gook luck. donnyb60
