Question about 2006 kawasaki ZX-14
I repaired a zx14 that was smashed.All the electrics ,lights etc work,but when I switch on the ignition,the choke actuater,fuel pump does not work,when I try to start the engine there is no spark to the spark plug leads.There is no F1 fault showing but the immobiliser light does not blink as it should when the bike is switched off.When I plugged in another bikes cdi unit ,it gave me a n immobiliser fault as well as showing a picture of the key on the cluster.Is ther possibly something that needs to be reset and how? Please help as I have tried everything .Regards Francois
Wow...where to begin, I am not a professional mechanic...but I've been buying and rebuilding bikes for over a year now and I've encountered some of these issues.
Q: do you have the original key and ignition still in tact?
the fuel pump and choke you should hear activate when you turn on the ignition and/or press the start button...the fuel pump should be located in the gas tank, there should aslo be a single connector w/2 wires that attaches to the fuel pump...I'd suggest checking that FIRST, in a Kawasaki I dont believe that the F1 light blinks when the ignition is switched to off so do not let that be decieving to you...Another easy fix and hugely overlooked and misunderstood issue is the battery...by this It means that a bike will not have enough "stable power" to "fire" or "spark" a coil, so other than a new battery or a strong jump start you will be unable to determine whether or not there is an actual CDI or ignition issue to contend with...after checking and verifying those issues, please feel free to find me and I'd be happy to share the many small things I've had to contend with
