Question about 2000 kawasaki ZX-9 R Ninja
I went out about a month and a half ago and started my bike, the next day i went out to start it and it would turn over and over just fine but it would not fire, i bought new spark plugs gapped them and changed them, still no fire. I was told to clean the carbs real good and drain the fuel out of the bike, blow out all the fuel lines, and put fresh gas in it. I did all of this and it still wont fire up. I took a spark plug coil off and there wasnt any spark inside of it when i turned it over, so i took a spark plug out and hooked it back to the coil and touched it to the frame and there was no spark at all, checked all the other spark plugs the same way and there is no spark. Please help me find out whats wrong with my bike, its really starting to make me go alittle nuts. Thank so much for you time and help.
Hi, Jerome and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. 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.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or CDI or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Sounds like what you realy need to do is remove the carb jets and give them a good clean , this if I am right is the twin V 8 valve engine with twin Klhein carbs , make sure also your air filter is not dirty and check tank fuel filter ,, other than that you may be intrested in the manuel obtainable from this site
hope this helps good luck .. and Live long and prosper lol .. Regards Vortash

you could possibly have a bad fuel petcock they sometimes work there way out and cause fuel cut off to half the carburetors. The vent tube on tob of the tank can also become blocked. You can check it buy sucking on the tube and making sure you can **** air out of it. You may or may not have inline filters under the tank. If it's a 93 there is no fuel pump.

SOURCE: my 2003 KX 125 will not start
top end is going. have the cylinder checked out to see if there is any scoring around it (lines in the cylinder due to usage, and from metal on metal contact)..have the same exact bike and had the same exact problem. ur top end is going and you should replace it

check the air filter if its clean take the carb apart and clean it with something like b-12 or i use wd-40 on my bike so it wont eat the rubber gaskets
