SOURCE: four wheeler back fires

If the motor has two carbs then balance the carbs. Balancing the carbs basically means being certain the slides on both carbs open up simultaneously. If one carb opens sooner than the other then it 'drives' the other carb and can cause the backfire. Other things can can cause a backfire but lets start here first.

SOURCE: Problem with the valve/front brakes on 2001 Kawasaki 300

sounds like that the piston o-rings are warn out. replace them on the master cylinder and get your self a 12 inch tube and a small glass jar loosen the bleeder valve put the tube on the bleeder valve and the other end in the jar put brake fluid in the jar and put it in the reservoir don't let ether run out and keep moving the brake lever it will get the air out of the lines quicker, repeat this for the other side

first are you getting spark?second are you getting fuel? to check the spark take out the plug and put it back into to cap(holder) do not touch the plug and turn over the will see a small spark.if not you starter coil is check the gas look under the carb there will be a overflow hose by the overflow hose is a flathead screw,open it if no gas comes out you will need to take out the carb and replace the float valve.

SOURCE: why does my four wheeler keep back fireing and not starting

Could be air block in the petrol tube and clean the carborator and remove the dust and dirt to run the unit. Cleran the petrol tank atleast once in a year to avoid dust formation at the bottom of the fuel tank. Adjust the gap in the spark plug to standard specification to avoid back fireing.

SOURCE: Kawasaki three wheeler won't start

so yo have an electronic ignition then. Id be suspiciious of the little 'black box' that comprises the system.

Electronic ignition is teriffic while it works, and they have a good track record. When it quits ... id much rather work on the points type.

Aside from checking the adjustment on the electronic ignition, I dont think there is much you can do with them

My kawasaki 300 model: KLF300A four wheeler wants to turn over but doesn't I was thinking that it isn't getting good air flow and I replaced many parts and the battery and lights are good but I'm not sure ...

Firstly Check the spark plug, black is too much fuel brown is perfect and white is not enough fuel (too much air running hot) that and ground the plug and turn over the engine to make sure it's not an electric problem..

My four wheeler back fired now won't start I don't think it's getting any fire to spark plug

Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt). run fault codes to determine if a position sensor has failed.
