I haven't ridden my bike in about a month and a half. I went to start it up for a quick ride last weekend and it's not turning over at all. I don't believe it's a battery issue my headlight comes on at a nice strong light; it makes a rrr-rrrr sound like it's trying to start up but nothing beyond that. Anyone have any quick suggestions as to what I should look for? It's a 2004 Ninja 250 and I unfortunatly am not that well versed in the mechanical side of it yet.Start from simpliest and work your way up. is it EFI or carb? If its a carb can you spray a squirt or 2 of carb start in the carb then try it. Not familiar with EFI yet. Just because the headlites come on is no quarantee the battery is good enough. Throw a 2 amp trickle on it for a day or half a day. The gauge on the front of the battery charger (if not a small one) will tell you where you are battery power wise. Hustle out and purchase the shop manual, bike specific for it at the Kawasaki shop before its not available anymore. While you may never be destined to rebuild motors or sesat valves, you'll be surprised th ahndy dandy factoids you'll pick up. You may even save a damsel in distress,,,

I trickle charged the battery due to the cold weather. I put it back in and the indicator lights all come on so the battery is charged but the bike will not turn over. What is the problem?

The question lacks some required information as to the connection with cold weather, did it stay too long while flat and in the cold condition?, Is it a dry cell battery?
Based on your facts, The battery may be deteriorated in amperage capacity hence may indicate the required voltage yet low in amps. Clunking needs more power.

If the battery is okay, there might be an engine problem.

Trouble code C1085 low power and throttle response and running hot

Hi Wayne, and the usual suspects are:
1. Insufficient oil supply or oil not circulating.
2. Insufficient air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy carbon deposit in combustion chamber.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP and/or CMP sensors.
5. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
6. No oil cooler.
7. Normal engine oil tempurature 180-220 degrees.
Good luck

Transmission jumping out of gear, and not going into gears. also sticking in gear.

Sounds like a selector problem possibly due to one too many wheelies, unfortunately this involves major heart surgery to replace the worn cog (usually 1st & 3rd) however it is a cartridge gearbox so although it's a nasty job it's not quite an engine rebuild.

Hope this helps

My honda unicorn is not starting in the cold weather? I replaced the battery. But still the problem persists.

Clean the carburetor ,or the fuel must be adjusted,due to the cold weather the engine need a rich mixture to start the engine,a rich mixture mean more fuel less air
