SOURCE: flicker relay unit on kawasaki GTR 1000

I found a microfiche for the GTR1000 and it looks like the indicator-relay is mounted on the front-fairing inner-frame (fairing stay) on the right-hand side ie next to the headlamp-ish.

125cc Kawasaki dirt bike, cranks on first kick, idles but won't run in any gear, doesn't die out but doesn't seem to engage gear, possible problems?


Does it jerk forward when you put it into gear and die? Or you put it into gear and the bike doesn't move when you let the clutch out? Badly adjusted clutch in both cases. Worst case, you need new clutch plates and springs.

2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Nomad sticking clutch plates


Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting for weeks or months and you get it started, put it in 1st gear, it lurches forward and stalls. Your clutch has bonded from surface rust on the steel plates due to condensation from running hot and shutting down in a cool environment. The easiest way to remedy this situation is to push start the bike in gear, shift and drive it normally until it reaches operating temperature and you will be fine. In severe cases, the clutch will have to be removed and disassembled, the clutch plates decontaminated and reassembled and installed.

My bike doesn't want to start, I check d battery n is good, wen I push d start motor it makes a click sound like wen d battery is losse, n I try push started n d rear weel gets lock wen I realease d...


See if the motor turns freely by hand to make sure it isn't seized or otherwise jammed. It could be that 1st gear is too low to get the motor turning while you try to push start; you coulsd try 2nd gear. If the motor isn't jammed up, check the electrical connections from the battery and pay special attention to the ground. If the battery is good and the connections all prove to be good, you either have a bad starting relay or bad starter motor.

Check the clutch, neutral and side stand safety interlocks.
Double check that the bike is in neutral, and the clutch is pulled in when trying to start the bike.
If the bike is in gear with the side stand down, the bike cuts off all ignition.
If the clutch isn't pulled in, the starter won't engage.
Check all these safety interlock switches, and make sure you are in neutral with the clutch in when trying to start the bike.

Hi,my kawasaki z250 wont start, starter solenoid has been repaced but just clicks


It could be "clicking" for three reasons. Poor battery voltage/contacts, no power to the motor or a faulty starter motor due to worn brushes.
The click you hear is the solenoid pulling the dog cog against the starter sprocket.
If the lights stay bright and do not "dip" in brightness when attempting to start your bike, suspect the starter motor itself or cables feeding it. Connect the battery possitive momentarily to the starter motor power contact. Does it spin? If not the motor is without a doubt faulty. If it does, your problem is the power cable from the battery and any ancillary relays.
Hope this helps.

The bike will not shift into gear. The clutch has plenty of spring tension just will not engage


if the bike has been sitting for a while the clutch plates can stick together, you will still feel spring tension from the pressure plate. two ways to free it up.
with the engine stopped click it up into top gear, put the front wheel against a wall, pull in the clutch, and push on the kick start, or push start it in gear, pull in the clutch and vary the throttle .
Change the oil after the ride with good motorcycle engine oil.
