SOURCE: kawasaki motorcycle is heating up and engine not being cooled

if the water pump was working before draining all the fluids i would possibly rule out the pump failing. i do think it is very possible, while very common that there may need to be more coolant added. coolant needs to be added through the radiator cap, and a good practice is to run the cycle while the cap is off and add coolant accordingly. do this for a few minutes. cause likely what has happened is there was an air pocket when adding the coolant, and this can make is seem like enough was put in. but after the pump working it can cycle the water through and help expose those pockets.
hope this was helpful. thank you.

SOURCE: hi im looking for a 2005 kawasaki zx10r workshop

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. Most all of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language. The 10R manual they have is for a 2004. The manual should be 99.5% the same as the 2005. And best of all, it is totally free!

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: Engine swap 04 zx10r on a 06 zx 636 f

The frame mounting points are completely different. A zx 636 frame wraps around the motor where as a zx10r frame goes directly over the motor. That's how they keep the zx10r nimble enough to feel like a 600cc sport bike. But in this day and age if you have enough time and money you can accomplish anything. Honestly it's just easier to sell your 6 and buy a 1 liter.

Locked my keys in my chevy equinox and the spare key wont unlock it. Why?

Possibly the spare key was mis-keyed so you may have to have
another spare key made after you get original key by using a
locksmith to open door. I had an older chevy that I had a spare
key made at a Home Depot that would only work in one position.
The top and bottom of the key should be cut identically to original.
Also some new spare keys need to be reprogramed with the
car's security system to work in the ignition. Owners manual will
show you how to reprogram it yourself.

As long as you get a muffler that is comparable to a stock muffler then it will have no effect on the performance. Most aftermarket companies make stock mufflers that would fit your bike though it would likely be cheaper to just replace them with stock kawasaki pipes.
As to replacing them, using an impact wrench will make removal easier and be sure to use a new clamp even if the old one looks good

you can find manufacturing year on the chassis of bike and for your safety I suggest you to replace complete ignition switch, because you can not find the proper key if you find that is only adjustment which is not safe.

Reprogramming a spare with only 1 original - 2004 Chevy Malibu

the ignition keys are not coded. no "chip" in them you should be able to just have a spare key cut and it will work fine. These use an electronic device in key cylinder that senses the proper rotation of cylinder and tumblers. so if someone tries to pry on with a screwdriver it will disable starter. when this is replaced it has to be reprogrammed
