Question about 1997 kawasaki ZZR 400
My ZZR400 is turning over but not actually firing. Only started happening a few days ago when it wouldn't start properly, then only got half a mile down the road before it lost power and finally died when I let the revs slow down.
The battery is fully charged this morning, fresh oil, fresh petrol, spark plugs are dry, no moisture on battery terminals. All electrics are working fine (headlight, indicators, brake lights, fuel and oil warning lights, etc.) and the fuses are all testing properly.
I'm fairly new at mainenance for the ZZR and not sure what to do next.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! :-)
Hi m8,,b4 i can assume anything else,just a couple test u need to try out,, make sure fuel is getting in carbs ,,just undo carb drain screw and check fuel is in the carbs ,, just to iliminate 1 thing,, then pull off one plug cap at a time take the plug cap off the ht wire of the coil, and snip a bit off the end ,, so u can see a strand or to of copper or brass wire in the core off the ht wire,, then screw the cap back on, repeat the process to all the other 3 plug caps,, while u r there make sure the coloured wires to the coil arnt pulled off or corroded,,cheers

Dear hairybikeruk, Pl check your bykes relay. If its not working properly you may face the problem. It stops charging the battery though the battery might be a new one. Thanks.
