    Has the bike been in storage for a while? obviously if there is dirt in the carbs toy could have a problem there. Are the chokes working properly?Is the fuel new? Old petrol can go stale and not burn as efficiently.

The fuel tanks are common to rust through, maybe that is where the dirt is from.

Did you turn the fuel petcock back to the "on" position? ok that checks good step 2 maybe the filter is clogged. try changing the filter. or make sure that lack of fuel is causing the no start issue.

Howto sync carbs on kawasaki zzr400

best way is to remove the carbs ! get 4 x 4mm drill bits , set carbs on a wide tickover gap on butterflies until you can get the drill bits in the gaps and adjust till all 4 carbs are set the same gaps just slightly touching the butterflie bottom edge and the drill bits trapped between them and carb venturies ! then return the tickover back to shut on the butterflies and look and see if they are all opening and closing together and gaps same after several times ! should be correct if all links are ok ! final tickover setting when fitted on bike to about 600 to 800 rpm ! while the carbs are off you could strip and clean them if you wish ! hope you understand this ! ?? cheers P...

2006 zzr 600 dies when I drive it

The fuel system needs cleaning. Remove the carbs and petcock and clean them both out. The carbs have plugged jets which cause that. If you are not sure of how to properly clean out the carbs, I recommend that you take them to a shop or someone who knows how to.

Hi i got a zzr 600 im not geting fuel to carb 2 or 3 and no fuel in float chambers but runs on 1 and 4 for a bit thans terry

Sounds to me that the float may be stuck in the raised position for that carb. This will keep the needle vavle closed preventing fuel entering the float chamber. has the bike been left in the garage for a while on its side stand if so that might also indicate that the float pivot pin is worn and as the fuel evaporates the float has jammed against the side of the float chamber. Carb cleaner slight tapping of the side of the carb float chamber and possible a squirt of compressed air. All worth a try before a massive strip down. Jim ex heli-mech.

Cbr 600 f3 carb problem

Inside of the carb is an inlet valve. Works like a toilet, with a float rising as fuel enters the float chamber..

Yes, is can be dirt, or a sunk float( meaning float absorbed fuel, and now wants to sink).

You need to remove the carb, and open it up to resolve this issue.

Bike keeps sputtering and somtimes dies

Problems like these can be the most difficult to diagnose- especially when not in person.
Time is not a factor when it comes to water in fuel. Water can condense in a tank in just a few weeks or you could have pumped it directly from a filling station.
Its easy to check for water in fuel... Get a clean container, preferably clear or white in color ( makes it easier to see contaminates/ water). Shut the petcock off or if its vacuum driven turn the petcock to on. remove the fuel line from the carb end and place in the container. turn the petcock on or to PRI (prime) and let some fuel flow into the container. Shut the fuel off and let the container sit undisturbed while you reattatch the fuel line to the carb and secure.
Now look into the container. Fuel floats on water. if you see little bubbles on the bottom of the container or a distinct seperation line in the fluid in the container then you have water in your fuel. You will neeed to drain your entire fuel system including carbs and tank and replace with fresh fuel. Maybe run a bit of sea foam through your fuel system to remove the remaining water. If you are lucky you can get by without removing the carbs and cleaning them.
If the fuel is good then you may be looking at an ignition problem.

Zzr 1100 c model revs fine stationary and starts ok but when riding will not go faster than 50mph and stutters back and forth all the time

The spec sheet doesn't say if your model has fuel injection or carbs. Assuming carbs, disassemble and clean them. You will want the shop to balance and sync the carbs as well. This should get you back on the road in style.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
