Question about 2000 kawasaki ZR-7

1 Answer

Seriouse power dip at low rpm

I bought a ZR-7 2003 with 8000 km 3 months ago.
Verry happy with the bikebut Im experiencing problems.

At low rpm the bike reacts verry bad on the trotle. When I'm axelerating from full stop, power dissapears for half a second and it suddenly shocks alive. This is a problem in the first 3 gears. After thet the bikes settles this out.

Also in neutral the bike sputters around 1500 rpm, a small power dip.
I hope you undestand my problem.

Thanks in advanced

Plug gaps are incorrect. They are too tight. The gap of a plug has direct effect to ignition timing. Too tight and timing is advanced. Too fat and timing is retarded. use a decent wire gapping guage (not the 99cent key chain gapper) tool is a FEELER guage not force guage. gapped right and your problems solved.

My 2002 saturn L100 seems to have a lack of power, not all the time though. I had it tuned up about 4 months ago, the tune up didnt help the problem. Bought a new battery, that didnt help either....

Does it seem to have less power going up hills ? Compaired to flat surface driving . Possible plugged catalytic converter . Back pressure test the exhaust system . Videos on youtube showing how to do both test's . The one jack mentions also . Also hooking up a professional type scan tool an viewing engine sensor data , fuel trims , O2 sensor switching rate etc...

Hi i have the Bose Companion 5 speakers for more then a year now i have been playing them for over an hour and just realised that they keep fading the sound goes high and low i have never experienced this...

i just bought companion 5 1 month ago and am facing this same problem from 1st week. its an embarrasment. i had given it to the service center and they could not detect the problem. so i did my own research and found that if i kept a fan blowing on the rear vents of the acoustimass module the problem does not also please check it. i have again given the acoustimass module to the service center and told them this lets see what they do???

Engine oil leak

Personally, I think you may have suffered some engine damage. No matter how minor, I would definitely push to either have Honda give you a new car or at the least, replace the engine under your warranty. They will not want to but it is a factory defect. You don't say how long you drove it with the oil pressure light on, but usually when the light comes on the oil is waaaay low.

I assume you are not in the US (since you use km) so I do not know what legal recourse you have.

Thanks for using Fixya.

What are the possible reasons for high fuel consumption?

a low cylinder will cause a reduction in fuel economy. also in the winter months many states oxygenate thier fuel, it helps with emmisions but reduces economy. higher octane fuel usually has less feul economy, drop to the mid grade
