Hi,

On most bikes including Kawasakis, the starter button would be on the right side of the handle bar on the throttle grip assembly. It would be right below the headlight switch. Above the headlight switch would be a switch that must be set to RUN, this is the engine kill switch.

If the above still fails to crank/start the bike, then the following would have to be checked:

  • battery and battery cables;
  • starting relay;
  • starter motor.
If the engine will crank but will not engage/run, then you need to check for:
  • spark at the plugs;
  • fuel as supplied by the carbs.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi, Anonymous when the chain came off it probably damaged the neutral safety switch and it needs to be replaced for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

I have a 07 ninja 650r and it will not start. I have ensured that the bike is in neutral and the kill switch is where its suspose to be but no joy. I turn the key its lights up the oil and neutral lights...


Even though the transmission is in neutral...is the neutral light workimg?
To satisfy the interlocks, even if the light works.....try starting with sidestand up, and the clutch pulled in.
If it now starts...the interlock ciccuit is not sensing the bike is in neutral. If the light doesn;t work....inspect the wiring for your neutral switch ....usually the circuit grounds through the switch to the crankcase so any wiring break will prevent it from working.

My 2002 kawasaki ninja 250 is having trouble starting. (electric start) At first it was just giving me this clicking sound kinda like when your car wont turn over and start. So I replaced the battery for...


The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

Ninja 250r headlight, does bike need to be running for it to work


your lights should always work with the key in on position for safety reasons, eg if you had to pull over and it was dark you would turn the engine off but would still need lights.

2008 ninja 250 engine oil looks green color


Just replace the oil, its cheap enough to do and costs less than rebuilding the engine.
the white foam on the oil cap is normal its just fine water particals built up, change the oil and take the bike on a run.
so does the bike run fine with the jet kit and exhaust change ? you dont explain your self well.

2002 kawasaki ninja 250 motor on ATV need wiring help


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge, there would only be 3 wires needed from the handlebars that affects the engine:
  • engine RUN/OFF;
  • clutch ENGAGED;
  • engine START.
The first 2 would go to the interlock plus the neutral wire and the sidestand wire. The interlock then sends signals that starter motor can turn and that CDI can fire.

As to the ignition coil, 1 wire is IGN B+12 while the other would go to the CDI and should pulsate when cranking or engine running.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Gear/clutch problem


does not seem like the waterpump. is the clutch set too loose?
usually in wire based clutches, if the clutch cable is set to be too loose, or if it is frayed, and needs replacement, the bike will jump and stall.
check that.
