My bike did the same thing, and it sounds to me like your riding in a lower gear and your thermostat sensor on the radiator needs to be replaced

Hi, Chris after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Kawasaki Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm.

Bike starts and runs but when it warms up (running for about 20 30 minutes) it won't start back up until it cools down...and it's not running hot...can you please assist me

Overheating. The raditor coolant or the cooling fan is'nt working corectly the engine should be as hot as it's going to get in 5 minutes then the therostae opens to start keeping it at the same temperture if the coolant or the fan can't keepit at this temperture it'll not restsate till it's cool enough to be in the safe range agin. Some times not changind the oil often enough can case this problem too low coolant and the fan not working all can cause this after finding the coolant system problem and fixing it change the oil as it'll be ruiened from the overheat. Low speed hotrodding and stop and go traffic can trash the oil and just a few hot runs acan make it need and oil change as the oil fails at high tempertures and the oil is an important part of the cooling system as it's cooler beng clean and in the air flow. As the oil cooler doesn't have the benifit of a fan sitting running and hotrodding at low speeds will heat and kill the oil then after the oils killed then it'll overheat case the oils bad.

So I bought an 95 zx6r ninja stock with 6000 miles last week. I noticed that the fan does not turn on period. While riding obviously its no big deal, but in traffic I have to shut the bike off sometimes....

check your Thermostat is engaging, if you have a haynes/clymer manual it will show you how.

check that the radiator is filled 100% from the cap and bled of air by squeezing the hoses,

anything else about the F model is pretty simple,

i used to use for my 95 ZX6R but its an american site, so some of it didnt make sense to me.

Color of coolant

Color is just that, it just looks pretty. You need to use either the genuine Kawasaki anti-freeze or dex-cool style anti-freeze. Motorcycles use a ceramic washer in the water pump that is prone to damage if you use silica style standard automotive antifreeze. If you dont have a dealer near you Dex-cool is available at most auto stores.

Seriously overheating zx6r ninja

With the 05 I would check the thermostat. With the 03 that is normal, my 02 cuts on and off around the same range. I put a switch in so I could turn my fan on when ever I wanted. I run mine once I get to 175...
