Oil change intervals for motorcycles depend a great deal on your riding conditions and riding style. For lower-revving street bikes, I often change my oil about every 2000 miles (~3200 km). However, someone with a sport bike who regularly revs their engine closer to the redline, I would suggest a more frequent change interval. Off-road / dirt bikes should have their oil changed sooner because of the dusty conditions. The oil is still full of lubricants, but it is contaminated with dust and dirt that clogs the filter and eventually goes right into the engine, increasing wear. I can't offer much guidance for dirt bike oil change intervals.

Hi there pete moss here from portsmouth. my zrx 1100 will not turn over from the start switch,ive shorted out the starter relay and the bike will turn over. should there be a spark at the plugs because...

most newer bikes have safety interlocks....I'm more familiar with Yamaha than Kawasaki...but here goes...

First since the bike won't crank normally and has no igntion sounds like an interlock issue.
Ensure the engine kill switch is in the RUN position...rock it off and on to verify.

Is your neutral light operational....even if the bike is in neutral...if the neutral indication circuit doesn't detect it, you cannot crank starter with sidestand down. Try restart with sidestand up...and clutch lever pulled in.

Looking at buying a 2001 zrx 1100 for $2000, but the bike has 47,000 miles. It that a good buy?

What is the best type of oil to use in my 2000 zrx1100??

A motorcycle oil should be JASO MA certified on the label. Any oil that is Energy Conserving (car oil) will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Use 10w-40 in cold climates and 20w-50 in warm climates. Synthetic oil will help the bike run cooler and shift easier.

I doubt the bike has 100k on it, thats alot of riding! If it runs and looks good just figure it is a typo and ride it. As far as the oil filter that bike uses a spin on filter, it is painted black, screws on the front of the engine just above the oil pan just to the right of center.

2000 kawasaki zrx 1100 how do i change tranny oil on bike. My frist bike, Not too sure on it.

transmission and engine share the same oil, so it is changed when you change the engine oil, and for that reason I change engine oil on my bike at 2 thousand mile interval.

Don't know how to check the timting on my ZRX

The ZRX has CDI ignition. The CDI ignition timing is fixed and can not be changed. A "tuneup" means you change the oil and oil filter, install new spark plugs and new air cleaner, lubricate the cables and chain, adjust your mirrors and then wash the bike. That's it!

Rough running

This problem, ironically, might simply be the screen filter on the in tank petcock. The zrx is a gravity fed filter-less fuel system with only the screen to act as a filter. I had the same problem with my black 2001 zrx and did a full tune up before pulling the petcock and cleaning away 9 years of sediment from what appeared to be a very clean tank. I simply purchased a seal kit from Kawasaki before the tear down and waited till the tank was as empty as it would get by riding it. The screen was surprisingly clogged with junk...and once cleaned and reinstalled the bike no longer ran poorly when cold. Im not sure why the bike being warmed up made a difference but it it starts and runs like a champ (colod or hot)!!!
