Question about kawasaki Zx600a2 Ninja 600r Motorcycle Cover Sport

1 Answer

I need to know the valve lash specs for a 1985 Kawasaki GPZ 600 A Ninja.

The 1985 600 motor does not use shims, but screw adjusters, so the specs for later (90's) engines found on the net can't be used.

Zx 600 how much is a valve adjustment?


You should check the gaps first, easy job to check, not so easy to do if shims under the buckets, as cams need to come out, but can be done if time s taken, shims are about $6.50 each, but you can use some of your own if they are compatible, by checking you can tell the shop which ones are out the n they cannot scam ya.

How do I adjust the rocker arm bolts for the valve lash on a 1985 Nissan 720 pick up Z24 engine


Guys he has a Z24, Not KA24, Z24 for one, Is carbed and has older lifters and valves. They need to be tuned to spec within a certain specific limit and the cams must be rotated in certain positions when doing different valves, etc... Shouldnt take very long normally and its not a hard process but if you have a tick, you really should get it checked out. Btw, the Z24 engine's idle isnt controlled by ecu at all or else the carb wouldnt need an idle adjustment screw.

I have a 1986 zx 600 ninja and its hard to start when its cold I have to use starting fluid but after running even for a min it starts great


Your problem is that your valves are not properly adjusted; had the same problem on my 1985 Ninja 600 - the colder the ambient temperature got the harder it was to start. After a valve adjustment it fired right up even in freezing temperatures very reliably.

How do I adjust ZZR1400 valve clearence


The valve lash adjustments on these bikes are done with shims on a COLD engine.
Intake valves 0.15-0.20
Exhaust valves 0.22-.0.27
Check the specs on your emissions sticker to confirm...California bikes are subject to change.
If you are not familiar with timing marks and adjustment procedures, i recommend you buy the manual and follow the steps outlined, the illustrations are also a big help.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

Valves tapping


you can put some thicker oil in it, or some oil additive,, however this is not recomended, the valves need to be adjusted. They are shims adjustment, and best done by a mechanic.

How do i adjust the valves on a 05 klx 125


I'm not 100% sure on this particular bike, but most late model hi-perf japanese bikes have shim adjustment. You can tell if you take the tappet cover off & the cams run straight ontop of the valves, If it's shims, you need to turn the motor until the cam lobes (pointy parts) face as opposite to the valves as possible (usually upwards) so the valve is completely shut, then use feeler gauges to me asure the gap between the valve tip & the cam. The valve springs can be compressed slightly (carefully) to let the shim on top (or underneath) the bucket be removed & replaced with the right thickness to give factory specs. Sometimes one shim from one valve can be used to make another valve correct, leaving less shims to buy. If not shims, should have a simple screw & locknut adjuster, same setup, just measure between valve & rocker, adjust to factory specs (or slightly smaller for more go)
