Hahaha, good 1...little vacation...good you made it through ok during the vacation. Anyway, 9 years is quite long for a bike not to have been started, If you want to be safe wrather thn maybe sorry later, check ur tank first if it's clean inside, no rust corrosion.if it's clean good.Then just get a new battery and try starting it(after putting gas in the tank ofcourse,hahaha). If the tank is dirty inside..throw some nuts and bolts in there and shake it around with kerosine, then rinse out with water..let it dry and put in a coating for the tank wall.Then take off the carburator and clean it out.change all fluids...brakefluid,clutchoil, motoroil,etc..fuses, bulbs.
goodluck since it's quite a job to do it all yourself.

I have a 1999 zx9r that has sat for about 4 years.pulled and cleaned carbs,replaced fuel pump.checked and cleaned spark plugs.it only runs when vacumn is pulled on carbs?


Hi, Michael if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
8. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

From your description (ZX7R), I know it's a Kawasaki ninja zx7r.

HOWEVER, without a YEAR, only generalizations can be given, as things change from year to year.

Im having issues with the 1997 zx7r cold starting. I just had the carbs cleaned by a shop and they made sure the choke was working properly.


my last bike was a 1998 zx7r that i had from new. it was always a pig to start if i didnt get it right.
i had to start it with full choke and NEVER touch the throttle or it will never go.
keep hitting the starter if you have to but dont touch that throttle.
