    SOURCE: Kawasaki Z1000 died while on the hwy. Now won't turn over

    Unfortunately without any repair experience this may be too much for your first time out. You have a fuel injected bike, while your battery may have power you really need to ascertain if you are getting spark to the plugs, then check if you are getting fuel. These are the first steps to isolate the problem even further you would need the results of these checks.

    SOURCE: sometimes can't put first gear on, have to roll

    Hi doojook26,

    Sounds like a Kawasaki to me! Great bikes mechanically and performance wise. Many bikes have shifting difficulties from neutral into first gear and require a bit of rocking the bike back and fourth to get into gear. This becomes a bit worse over time and use of the bike. I would try using an oil cleaner or detergent additive with your oil. Your engine oil on this bike also lubricates the transmission and clutch. Go to your local auto parts store and ask for a motorcycle oil additive that cleans internal carbon build up. If there are no products specific to motorcycles, use an automotive product such as sea-foam brand and add the appropriate amount as specified on the bottle. Run the bike for about 50-75 miles with the oil additive and then change your oil after. I recommend Mobile 1 synthetic 10w/50. Do not use the additive with the new oil and see if the shifting improves.

    As far as your smoke in the front of the engine, it could be coming from your exhaust manifold coming right out of the engine or else from an exhaust connection further down the manifold. What is causing this smoke is more than likely oil residue from your engine which is not very desirable. The most likely cause for that is worn piston rings, and/or the oil scraper ring on the piston. This isnt a cheap repair to replace the piston rings of course but it will depend on how bad the smoking/oil consumption is getting, and how much you are willing to invest in repairs.

    Quite possibly the two issues are linked. If you have worn piston rings, oil will be escaping through to your exhaust causing the smoke, and, burnt fuel and carbon is building up and getting past the piston rings into your oil which may be contaminating it which would cause sticky shifting.

    Try the oil additive first. If that helps, then decide if you want to invest in piston ring replacement.

    Are all the plugs properly tightened & are all the leads on properly give them all agood firm push occasionally they can feel like they are on & besitting lose on top is the air filter element sitting correctly It may be causing an obstuction of the air intake if you have used an after market air filter it could be that it is heavier than the standard item & restricting air flow

    Hi, Matt it saddens me to inform you that you have to put on your Battery Priest Robe and prepare yourself for the Ceremonial "LOAD TEST" but before you begin, maintenance type batteries must be topped off with distilled Holy Water and all batteries must present their terminals to the battery charging altar to receive the electrical infusion of Holy Ions until they have reached a 100% full charge of 12.5 volts or better.
    Below is a quick and easy test to see if your battery is in good condition or needs Last Rites and must be replaced.
    1. Start by disconnecting the spark plug cables.
    2. Adjust voltmeter to DC volts 20-volt range
    3. Place the voltmeter leads to the battery terminals.
    4. Turn the run/off switch to run.
    5. Turn the ignition switch on and press the starter button.
    6. Watch the voltmeter as your engine turns over for 15 seconds.
    7. If the voltage drops below 9.5 volts, the battery is faulty and must be replaced.

    I just got my fl on my kawasaki zx6r 2005 red light turned on yesterday ... while i was doin some wheelies... and i brouht down,, could this b that im gettin a flat tire on my bike ,,, or is something...

    It could be as simple as the fuel light. When the bike is in that position, depending on how much gas was in it, you would be shifting all the gas to the back of the tank, and possibly off the gas sensor.
