    My zzr 400 has a "flat rev at 9500 rpm as well" My red line is at 13500. The bike use to rev freely until around 13500 rpm and now it won't even pass 9500 rpm. What could the cause be?

Hi!
Not being well familiar with the ZZr's however what is the Red LIne on this particular model? if it is around 10.000 then your rev limiter is kicking in stopping you blowing the engine.
Hope this helps!

spary wd-40 on all electrical connection that was expossed to water liberally.....if that doesnt do it, then you probably got water in your pulse generator system coils and will have to pull the cover off and see if theres water in there.

check starter solenoid.see if getting power to starter side when pressing button .if yes check if power to starter w/ test light when pressing button.if power there check starter,also motor, will it turn manually or is it seized.if no power to starter side of solenoid, jump across solenoid posts w/ a large screwdriver -motor will probaly turn over,w/ key on.if small wire to solenoid has power when pressing start,solenoid bad,if no power, wiring or start button bad.

Kawasaki ZZR400 Won''t start, Looses power in top Gear


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, would suggest:
  • a thorough cleanup job on the carbs;
  • inspect, clean the rubber couplings from carbs to intake manifold;
  • inspect tighten coupling clamps;
  • ensure no vacuum leak when re-assembling;
  • inspect, check, ensure air intake box seating to the carbs. Very important, there should be no air leak. All air must pass through the cleaner/filter;
  • check/clean tank, including fuel valve control and built-in fuel filter;
  • use PRIM instead of ON on the fuel valve control.
And the "carborator sleeves" will only slide up when there is sufficient vacuum (engine running) and the throttle is turned.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
