My 1995 Kawasaki bayou 300 will not start it has a spark gas to the Carb and a new battery it cranks and cranks but will not start. How do I get it to start someone please help I wanna go riding..

Hi Abbott:
You've gotta be close. Let's double check.
- Pull the plug(s) and make sure they're not fouled and that there is a nice hor blue spark across the electrode.
- Fresh gas in the tank
- flush the carb (drain plug)
- Fuel filter if there is one.
- Clean the air filter.
Put it back together and give it a try. If it runs, great, if not, pull a spark plug and see if it is "wet" with gas. If not, the problem will probably be with gummy bad stuff in the carb. Take it off, and an air hose to try to blow out all the little passages.
Keep smiling, you'll be killing bugs in no time!

Why FZR600 seems to lose two cylinders while driving, carb or spark problem?

if carbs are clean and not flooding etc then try finding out which cyls are off then swop plug caps over from good cyls and see if problem moves , if yes then fit a set of 4 new plug caps ! if no then do carbs again !!

Bike sputters with no throtle when trying to start. If any throtle or choke is used bike will not sputter at all. If starting fluid is used bike will start. I've changed plugs ,new gas and cleaned air...

Check/replace inline fuel filter. Put a fuel injector/carb cleaner fluid in the tank and run it through, this will clean any build up that may be in carbs/injectors.
If problem is still persisting then you'll need to get carbs/injectors removed for cleaning and resetting. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

My 1981 Kawasaki is leaking gas out of this little rubber hose on the muffler side of my bike. This little rubber hose looks like it is attatched to the spark plugs or something. This can not be safe. What...

hi,this might help,it sounds like one of your carb floats is stuck,this will allow the carbs to keep filling with fuel and ultimately overflow through that rubber hose,if it is only one then it is a simple fix(hopefully),get a long screwdriver and give each of the carb bowls a good healthy tap (with the handle end)hope fully this wil free it up and the fuel should stop running out,if it doesnt then you may have to pull the carbs out and clean the needle valves and reset the float levels...cheers

Rebuilt carbs. flooding rear cylinder

well your deffinately flooding if it had no problems like this before the rebuild then i would say its the needle on the float not closing all the way try takinf the carb off and take the bowl off leaving the float on and hook up the feul line and push the float up if its leaking you have a bad needle. if its not leaking then your problem may be the spark to the cylinder

IF you have a battery get a new one ; put in new gas ; super; dsid you ajest any screws on carb. You tight need to run a prime tank right to your carb to prime it; and then hook your tank backup new gas lines to your carb. Now break out with the WD40 to spray all switches for rust.
