Question about Suzuki GZ 125 Marauder Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a suzuki gz 125 marauder 07 model couple of weeks ago it started to sound rough like it was struggling to get petrol or air it then started to hesitate and **** in 3rd or 4th gear doing approximately 40mph shortly after it started doing this it cut out and wont start i have had a few different opinions from my friends one said its the carburettor but when my brother thought he would be clever and jump start my bike but when it didnt work he said it was the coil now because of messing with it trying to start it the battery is playing up and when you try starting it now it hardly tries thats after having the battery on charge all day the day before.. any suggestions will be extremely appreciated.

Hi, Kayclarke198 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary, your battery may show 12.5 volts but have little or zero amps and needs to be replaced.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
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.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
16. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
17. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

Likely not new but worth the try. Had reviewed various other POSTS, and suggestion to take out battery and let sit for a while. Often cures unknown ills. Took out the new battery that did not work, let it sit overnight, put battery in again next morning and it booted up. This was done after, changing three batteries, after taking in/out the SD card (no real reason, but figured why not) and, after a subtle BANG on each of the corners of the unit......

No the suzuki 800 marauder seat will not fit the suzuki gz250. The mounting brackets are not the same distance from each other.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, would suggest:

  • a thorough cleanup job on the carbs;
  • inspect, clean the rubber couplings from carbs to intake manifold;
  • inspect tighten coupling clamps;
  • ensure no vacuum leak when re-assembling;
  • inspect, check, ensure air intake box seating to the carbs. Very important, there should be no air leak. All air must pass through the cleaner/filter;
  • check/clean tank, including fuel valve control and built-in fuel filter;
  • use PRIM instead of ON on the fuel valve control.
And the "carborator sleeves" will only slide up when there is sufficient vacuum (engine running) and the throttle is turned.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

I have a suzuki marauder gz 125cc 99reg. It was driving fine up to a couple of days ago but now it really screeches in first gear and I have to immediately put it into second. Any reason why this woul


The most likely cause is the clutch plates have worn out. You have to consider that these 125s are usually ridden by beginners, this means that they will be revved out in ,at least, the first 3 gears.

Try running the 'long life' or 'extended life' bulbs, They can withstand a little more in the rough service department. Also check to make sure your fender, bulb socket and tail light housing aren't loose, cracked etc. causing a higher than normal amount of vibration. A third thing to check is if your socket or the wires leading to it have a short, your tail light might be energizing alonw with the brake light anf causing the bulb to burn out.

Marauder 125.engine will only start on choke even when bike is warm. its doe 3000 miles and is 1998 model.


Sounds as if its starving for fuel. The corroborator could be dirty inside causing it to clog up and not show its best potential. Should be simple to take apart, remove, clean, and put back together
