My motorcycle started fine last fall, haven't been able to get it started this year. It appears the starter does not turn the engine. It spins but there is no spark.

SOURCE: New Battery, Have lights, Does not turn over

bang the side of the starter with a hammer (dead blow) and hold the start button. sounds like the starter solenoid is frozen. if not check the relay, and the switch, you can check the switch by doing a continuity test on it. good luck ill check back...

If you are not getting the starter to wind after pressing the start switch check these probs.Have you checked the fuses for the ignition switch? Check all fuses. Track the wiring from switch and check all plugs and connections.  Turn ignition on and try clutch starting the bike to see if the motor will run once it is cranked over. If you need to bump it, make sure all your connections and wiring are all making good contact. You must conduct a process of ilimination in order to rectify the fault. good luck.

No ignition spark


Check your fuses haven't blown and the plugs are all pushed in tight. You may have a scorched plug failing that but that only really comes from using a booster.....a nail file can cure that though.
Is your starter motor working? If not attempt to bump start it, but make sure it's in 2nd gear.

Left key in ignition overnight, had to jump start bike. now the main fuse keeps blowing


You haven't said what model or year of kawasaki.

Some newer bikes aren't supposed to be jump started. Take the battery off the bike, replace the fuse, charge the battery on a proper charger overnight (as opposed to a battery conditioner like optimate). It should now start fine and not blow the fuse.

If that doesn't sort it, the dealer will need to reset something.

Have 1979 kawasaki kz750 twin, how many turns on carbs to set correct fuel settings to keep from backfire


Your bike's engine is back firing ..this could be because of low level of fuel in the float chamber.
If you have cleaned the carbs , please recheck and reset the float chamber level.
Secondly both of the carburators have to work exactly at the same time..if they dont it will also kinda back fire and have uneven idling...check this too.
As for the air mixture screw .. once all is fine ....tighten the screw slowly all the way in to the last thn unscrew about 2 and half to 3 turns outwards .....you will notice the improvement of the idling.... its adivseable to check the valve clearance and reset them to specs.
Hope this helps!
