Question about 2003 kawasaki ZX-12R

Stalling at low rpms and taking off.

2003 zx12r, 2716 miles, pciii, full muzzy exh., seems to try to stall at low rpms. its almost like pinching the fuel line with vise pliers, and then the rpms shoot up and it goes. no problems throughout the rest of the range. it does it with or without the pciii, even at idle in neutral. any suggestions?

96 nissan 4cyl pickup. 250k miles. idle rpms normally at 700-800 at operating temp idle. rpms suddenly dropped overnight to 300-400 rpms.


If it was doing it when cold I'd say definitely, but your problem is when warm right? Maybe throttle position sensor? The ICV is pretty expensive ($85 and up). Just to take it our of the equation maybe clean it. I've never done mine, but Googling it, it doesn't look overly hard. Hopefully you have a garage or better weather than I'm having today!!. Good luck. Hey, when you figure it out come back and let us know what it was.

Is there a power band in a o5 zx12r cause when i dump the throttle i get a 1 second hesitation then the bike takes off


power curve- power ban only 2 stroke and i find its the overhead cams delayed power supply try ride a kwaka 250 zzr and the overhead cam delay is huge is it similar? The only downside to overhead cams is this yet once they kick in anything without o/h cams will be left behind

check for the pinched vacuum line at the carb,, sportys are hard to locate because they are tucked in way behind , it ay have come disconnected, unless there is a load on the motor it will idle fine, add a little load and you get the feeling no fuel is getting through unless you rev it up

1997 Honda CRV, over 219,000 miles. Stalls out periodically even though it starts OK. Can be pulling out, running engine at low rpms and it stalls. May be related to electrical as it is more likely to...


Considering that it occurs more often with the a/c on, it is most likely a problem with either your battery, where it is too weak to sustain the engine output, or with your alternator. I advise checking your battery, and if that isn't the problem, checking your alternator. If neither of those seem to be the problem, its also possible that it is your torque converter, or a skewed setting in your ecu, both of which would most likely need to be checked by a professional.

When I come to a stop my Sequoia stalls. When I put it in neutral or park it starts right back up, but as soon as you shift into gear it stalls. If I increase rpms then shift into gear will drive and...


Stalling is normally caused by a problem with
A) Lack of air - check your air filter
B) Lack of fuel - the fuel filter/fuel injectors get dirty
C) Lack of spark - inspect your plugs & wires
Might want to try cleaning the throttle body. Every 30k miles they should be cleaned.
Best bet however is to take it to a reliable, licensed mechanic. Vehicles 1996 & newer can have diagnostic codes read by a computer hooked up to the vehicle, identifying the problem.
