SOURCE: Kawasaki gt550 won't start from cold! even with choke!!

when you get the bike started you need to adjust the pilot air screw. here's how= turn in clock wise until engine falters(mark that spot with a pin)then out counterclock wise until the engine falters(mark that spot also) then put the screw in half amount adjustment of the two marks.that will take care of if it is to lean or to rich.make sure the engine is good and warm before doing so.

SOURCE: Cleaning Carb Jets

not to a trained ear also go by rpm and spark plug color

NOTE: use copper wire to clean jets, sync is just thottles are same position as all carb's just leave them adjustments alone will be fine if are out use a 1/8 drill an place in between piston/butterfly to carb bore to sync/calibrate

better use a manometer for adjusting screws

depends on condition of org parts

worn = richer running

new = lean an clean

also if changed the exhaust system need to
re-calibrate carbs for max performance

SOURCE: 81 xj650lh midnight maxim black exhaust, sooty plugs keep fouling

hi,fairly common problem with modified exhaust,start with the pilot screws,turn right in untill the screws are firm then back out 1 and 3/4 turns,this is a fairly standard rule of thumb that will get most things going,as far as the jets go,the original size would be a good starting point,but you should only need to go up 10-15 sizes to compensate for the exhaust mods(ie stock might be 127 may need to go to138 or 140 etc),the other thing that i would recommend is getting hold of a set of damped carb balancers these will enable you to get the mixtures and carb balance dead right,they are relitively cheap and easy to use and will have paid for themselves the first time you use them.(i regularly get 4-8 sometimes 10-11 extra hp over stock by tuning the carbs up properly).hope this helps

tap the bowl with a block of wood. Eventually you will need to take off the carb, diassemble it, and soak all the parts in solvent for an hour

Probably starving for fuel. Adjust your float in carb so that the bowl fills up higher. Also check your tank valve for trash clogs to make sure your getting fuel fast enough to keep up with use. Hope this helps

4 wheel drive light flashing on 2008 kawasaki prairie. What does this mean?

Depending on the flashing frequency, it could be the Electronic BRake controller, the 4x4 actuator or the brain.

Look for the service manual online, it has a procedure for checking/cleaning the actuator. It could be stuck with dirt and need a cleaning.

what did you use to clean the jets? if you stuck something inside them, you could have reamed it out a little to a larger size. you can try leaning out your mixture screw a little and see if that works. if not, you might have to replace your main jets.

Air filter needs to be installed and clean. Check the seal at the carb,for tears or loose clamps.Also make sure fuel filter is cleaned out or replaced(dirt trash or water will stop fuel flow). If fuel pump is electric fuses may need replacement. If you still dont get better results you may need carbs cleaned.Not just add cleaner to gas,but removed and debris removed from jets float valve seat or filters inside.

My zxr400 will not rev and carbs are clean

Are you sure there clean? did you dissasemble yourself?
I had similar issue and i 1. removed carbs 2. drained float bowls 3. removed main jets
I soaked main jets in carb cleaner, then blew all passageways with carb spray, then sprayed carb spray through all passageways in the carbs, i checked all rubber diaphragms for cracks especially the float bowl ones, my main problem was old varnished , gel like fuel traces which had built up from bike being idle over winter.

Once i completed this i reassembled and the bike idled steady and also revved cleanly to 15k revs, you might also want to check your fuel filter as it can effect flow rates if clogged with old varnished fuel
