2002 Suzuki Marauder VZ800 Front cylinder does not fire till bike warms up a bit?


Definately try a spark plug first. What does the old spark plug look like? ( white, oil fouled, melted, metallic?). Usually a fuel issue will make the inoperable cylinder very hot. Might have a loose valve guide in the head, or a bent valve.

Shifted into second gear, heard a popping noise, now the car wont stay in 1st, 3rd, or 5th, nor reverse, it will drive in second, and fourth, but you have to hold the shifter down as hard as you can, and...


The pin on the shifter pops loose. REPLACE THE PIN!!!! The dealer just clipped it back on and it did it on mine bunches of times - til they replaced the pin. (Don't know about the popping sound, it just let go on mine, with the same exact affect).

3rd gear har d to put in


Im not sure how you ride your bike but if you "beat on it shifting without cluch sometimes the fork in the transmission gets bent...this is the only reason that would cause hard shifting besides wrong gear lube

I can not shift out of 1st and 2nd. I can shift from 1st to neutral, and 1st to 2nd, but I can not go from 2nd to 3rd. When I depress the clutch and pull up on the shift lever to go from 2nd to 3rd it is...


Sounds like a bent shift fork of broken dog gear. Try cleaning the inside of trans with part light oil and solvent. (not fuel) Rock bike a few times and shift gears, Do not start. Keep doing so untill shifting gets easier. If this does not work. Try starting it one time and shift easy. Do not force. Still no luck - Split cases and repair

Falls out of second gear and only second gear, after it falls out a couple times it bends a tab on the linkage rod and will get stuck in neutral. i've already been in this bike to get it out of neutral, ,...


the yzf600r has a large gap between 1st and 2nd gear. if you don't shift into second firmly every time, what happens it that over time the dogs which engage 2nd gear gets worn/rounded off, and the "falling out" starts to occur during hard acceleration in 2nd. once the problem is there, the only way to fix it is to replace the affected gears: 2nd and 6th ( the gear 2nd slides in to), the shift fork, and the shift cam.

this requires a complete teardown and splitting the cases. about $3-400 in parts, depending on where you purchase them, and 8-12 hours labor depending on your level of expertise.

a qualified shop would charge $1500-2000.

04 Sportster 883 gearbox Clunk.


Big Twins clunk too, especially into 1st with a cold motor, even if you free the clutch off first. When I remember, I snick it into gear, pull in the clutch and roll it back and forward to free off the plates. And it still clunks. Sometimes, you will slip from neutral into 1st, almost with no effort, and no clunk and so smooth you don't believe it's engaged (but it is). Weird. I have smooth changes from 4th to 5th and back again, sometimes from 3rd to 4th, but 3rd to second and second to 1st are always a BIG clunk, even if you give it some stick to try and match the revs before changing down. I now go from second to neutral and then into 1st, which is not a lot of fun when you are negotiating a hairpin on Glenquaich at the time... A tighter primary chain seems to reduce the clunk, and there are those who say that auto primary adjusters/tensioners (does a Sporty have one of them?) reduce the clunk. Some disagree... Assume you find it's much better when it's hot..
