SOURCE: kawasaki 300 bayou won't rev up.

No guarantees but try this. Pull the slide from the throat of the carb. Now move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix. Two notches may be needed but do one notch at the start.

SOURCE: banshee wont rev

Usually related to TORS, specifically the safety switch in the clutch/park brake assembly. If it's defective the engine won't rev. Solution: look for a TORS removal kit.

SOURCE: kawasaki kmx125 lights go dim when revving engine. work fine on i

I had the same issue, and it after lots of testing and measuring, found out it was only that 'earth' wire that you have at the bottom left part of the engine, coming out from the left engine cover. You will find it easily, it's a standalone wire, mine had its sleeve too dry, might have been why it was not well connected. It also had a mix of sand and oil in it, so no wonder the lights would dim out. The wire plugs into some sort of a screw, you really can't miss it :) Even the old, worn sounding Yuasa battery got back to perfect function, only added distilled water to it and let it run fro some time. Cheers:)

I have a 2000 kawasaki zx6r. i layed it down at about 50 and put new plastics on a took off carbs and cleaned them because of throttle stick well when i put them back on i synced the carbs and it revs...

You might still have clogged pilot jets, also check the cold start circuit and idle circuits, when you synce the carbs did you do them at idle and 6k rpm?

2002 Kawasaki ZR-7S. wont rev up.

Check you main jets ccccccthey could need a good wiring through with needle wire cleaners or try running it without any air cleaner unit .If it runs well then could be an air filter problem.

My KLF 300 2wd starts fine and idles fine, But starts to die when throttle is opened up and misfires etc

As it is a off road bike make certain the air cleaner is clean ,as it sounds like to much petrol getting in,Allso check the tank breather is not blocked . Drain a little fuel from the tank and carb incase you have water in there and change the plug. Allso check the exhaust for holes or leaks and the inlet rubbers as well hope this helps.

I have a kawasaki 300 byou 1990 moled 4X4 that i put a carberator kit in but just doesn't run right spits and sputters when i give it gas it will idle ok sometimes. drained all gas and cleaned out good....

It sounds like it is running too rich (too much fuel). First, make sure the air filter is clean and that there are no intake leaks between the carburetor and the engine. Also, try a new spark plug (they can go bad without warning). Then, with the engine at normal operating temperature and idling, adjust the idle mixture screw to attain the highest idle speed. After this, set the idle to the correct speed using the idle speed adjustment screw.
Test ride. If it still spits and sputters at half to full throttle, then you will need to get a smaller main jet - or go to a less restrictive air filter, such as one by K&N.
Finally, I am not sure what prompted you to put a carburetor kit in, but if the bike had been sitting for any lenght of time (more than 6 months) make sure the carb isn't plugged up.

Wont run /idle

i'd start with removing the carbs and giving them a thorough cleaning as when bikes sit for so long, the carbs begin to get gummy/varnished from the old gas.

check for blocked holes in the pilot jet & main jet and look for "hard & dried up" gas in passages. be careful of the float bowl gasket as to not tear it or you will need a replacement.
