Question about 1997 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder
Hi. I have a 1997 Suzuki Marauder VZ800. If I put my crank up TDC and my camshaft markings according to the manual, then my exhaust valves hit the piston. I have to go about 10 degrees out in order to NOT hit the valves. My camshafts are marked F & R and they are in the right place - I haven't got them mixed up. HELP..? @
Hi, Kmcadman for this scenario you will need your service manual, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Could be a combo of all. Replace your spark plugs sync carbs, and run it to see how it responds before you mess with the mixtures. Also check for any vacuum leaks. Hope this helps.
