Wires are color coded > red to red, blue to blue, etc.. As to where to connect each wire, just go to the dealer and ask to see a wireing diagram. Unless he is a **** he will be glad to help. Other options include the library for a service manual, purchase a service manual, Google 'Kawasaki GPZ 500 wireing', and finding another GPZ500 and looking at it's wireing.

Kawasaki gpz 400 will not start


Hi, Nico and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC,or BAS).
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box if applicable.
17. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
18. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.

I purchased a Kawasaki GPZ 1100 1995 model there was no ignition switch completely unattached from the wire harness what wires would i connect to hotwire


Phillip, the GPZ is essentially a KZ 1100. If the color codes are correct, then if you put the red and the yellow wires together, this should give you power. However, as a temporary fix only, I will give you some good replacement options that should help you out. ^^ Good luck, and hope this helps.

Hi, i have a gpz500 93 plate that wont start up


there's so many things it could be but if you have covered all you say thoroughly, have you checked the timing? As it is fixed the only timing you can double check is the cams and crank. do you have a manual?

The older rotors used to crack up and ruin things to do with timing but i think the D models have improved rotors.

Wires to conect to start no kek


You need to get a good manual. I would go with the factory one, but also available is Clymer or Hayes. Look on E-Bay for some. Hope you have wiring experience.

Kawazaki gpz carbs will fire when you put petrol directlt in them


Check the routing of the wires under the tank. Also check the wire connections. It sounds like the installation of the tank is pulling on the wires causing a momentary disconnection of a power wire.
Alternate to that, are the spark plug wires grounding against the tank?

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Starter motor


Check the battery is fully charged for a start. Secondly i would test the starter solenoid usually found under the seat, it is identified as a square box with 2 large leads and 2 smaller wires. one of the large leads go down to starter, the other goes up to battery. very carefully cross these out, ensuring the bike is in NEUTRAL before hand. The engine should turn. If all this still fails, replace starter.
