Question about 1998 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja

1 Answer

Don't know which way to turn the fuel shut off switch.

Just purchased my first bike; a 1998 zx-6, but continue to smell gasoline after turning fuel shut off valve to off. Bike was rebuilt, so I am not sure if I am turning it the right way. Have tried with off facing up and facing front. I know it's a stupid question, but I don't know if its a problem with the bike or if I'm just not turning it the right way. Thanks for answering a stupid question for a new rider.

Are you sure it is not the carburateur gasket leaking if it was rebuilt they removed the carb and may not have tightened the screws enough and the gas may be seeping out of the carb.

Firstly, my bike felt like it was running on three cylinders, reg-rec?


Hi, Peter and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Fuel tank empty.
10. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Failed fuel pump.
14. Failed pressure regulator.
15. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.

My bike won't start


First check to make sure the electrical system is in working order. Next, check for spark. If these are in order, check the fuel delivery system.If fuel is o.k, then check the compression. Hope this helps ya.

My 1998 Jeep Cherokee seems to loss power everytime I start it. After just 2-3 seconds, the engine shuts off. I got the vehicle from an impounding area and it has not been used for more than three (3)...


Since is sat so long, whatever fuel was in the tank has probably gone "sour". Old gasoline gets an unpleasant "varnish" smell to it. The only certain way to remove any bad fuel is to drain the tank, and by all means change the fuel filter again.
Another thing that happens when a vehicle sits a very long time is that condensation in the tank causes water in the fuel. One or two cans of "dry gas" along with a full tank of fresh gas can often take care of this.
The easiest way to drain the fuel tank is by disconnecting the fuel line under the hood, connecting a hose to it, place the hose in a gasoline can, and turn the key two clicks to "ON" (NOT START!) so the fuel pump does the work for you.

My 1990 ford taurus lost power while siting at a light, also shut off, started back up but vibrated really hard then shuts back off after 10 to 15 seconds, smell gasoline really strong


Sounds like you had a fuel line break. Turn the car on until it stops. Try to follow the smell. Back or underneath or front. Look for pools of fuel. Inspect the top of the engine, fuel lines, rails and injectors.

1994 ZX-9R, Having to turn the ignition key on and off a couple times to get it to start up. It is worse when the bike has been ridden. It happens about 20% of the time. I have had the ignition switch...


starter solenoid/relay going bad maybe? if the ignition switch was bad, it would be bad all the time and since you said its rideable 80% and doesnt loose any horse power, then its not the pump! if i helped let me know. Feedback!

Smell gasoline after turning off the engine. 2006


I had this Problem on my S-10 it was a bad fuel injector, the problem was when i looked for the leak it would evaporate quickly, use a flash light and look at each of your fuel injectors as soon as you turn of the car. If you do it yourself it is an easy fix, mine cost 12 dollars and about an hour to replace.
