Mark from Lancashire, England. I have owned my Marauder for over 8 years. The only problems I have had is when the starter packed up. When I bought the bike, it was loaded with chrome extras. It takes forever to clean.

The bike is reliable and has never let me down. I would definitely have another.

Hi there folks, I've just recently bought a VZ800 97 model. I would like to get a bigger/more comfy seat (& stay two piece). Any ideas where I can get one? And I would like to change sprockets, so it will cruise at a smooth 110km/h. Any ideas on sprocket size &/or things to look out for?

Cheers, Paul

I'm not sure where you're getting your valve adjustment interval of 3,000 miles, because every Marauder manual I've ever seen suggests a valve check every 7,500-8,000 miles. You're going to run off a lot of potential buyers and future owners of used Marauders if you tell them the valves need adjusted every 3,000 miles, which is just wrong information.

You may think I'm nuts, but I use Harley Davidson accessories. They fit just fine. As far as the seat for you, you have to do something about that unless your butt is made of steel. I had mine completely customized with gel and memory foam. The longest I have rode in one day is about 600 miles. I have put about 12000 miles on the ole girl since I bought it in 2008.
