The oil is in there but it doesn't always return to the sight window when parked...this is due to the twin sump design of these engines which is why there are two sump plugs to drain the oil when changing it. Take it for a run to warm it up and then park it on the centrestand on flat ground for half an hour or so...then check the oil level

SOURCE: I changed the oil and filter in my 2007 kawasaki

you probably have a leak! It is possible, (depending on what type of oil you put in)
that the oil dissolved the gasket, or removed sludge from an existing hole, causing it to open. but if you dont have any oil spots..well....thats a whole nother story.
terribly sorry!!
i hope this helps in some way!

SOURCE: Losing Oil in a 2000 Kawasaki ZR-750

make sure when you check the oil that the bike has been sitting on the centre stand for about twenty minutes or so before you check it as there is still alot of oil in the cylinder head and oil coolers etc,sitting the bike will let the oil drain back to the sump and give you a correct reading,try this and see how you go,hope this helps

If the problem only happens when the bike is cold, the oil could be the problem. If the clutch lever has excessive endplay, the clutch needs to be adjusted.

SOURCE: kawasaki 1995 GPZ1100 regulater wires.Left to

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the ignition coil wires are:

  • red - IGN + 12;
  • green - trigger wire for the left coil (cylinders 1 & 4) goes to the integrated circuit ignitor;
  • black - trigger wire for the right coil (cylinders 2 & 3) goes to the integrated circuit ignitor. There is also a connection to the tachometer.

Incidentally, to my understanding, most idling problems would be a air-fuel/carb issue. The pale burn marks of the sparkplugs indicate a lean mix where there is too much air, too little fuel. Possibilities are an air leak or air filter replaced with aftermarket open/free breathers such as K & Ns (without appropriate re-jetting/tuning).

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Sounds like water / oil emulsification. Is your bike water cooled or air cooled? If it's water cooled then you may have a gasket leak. If it's air cooled then you may not be riding the bike enough to get a good temp up inside the engine which would drive off the condensation inside the crank case / sump thereby leading to the emulsification. You say you rode an easy mile - certainly that's not enough to get the temp up enough to drive off the water. Was the bike running ok? Was it accelerating and braking ok? If so then try a cautious longer run and keep an eye on your levels. If in doubt consult a bike shop.

Speedometer cut off then back on later

Check the magnetic end of the speedo sensor. This is the part that goes into the transmission. If the end is covered with metal filings, clean them off and reinstall the sensor. Ride the bike and check to see if this solves your problem.

Nightrod stops firing a few seconds after starting

Probably fuel system has trash in it, The oil light comes on after engine dies would be right as the ignition is still on and no oil pressure.Fuel stabilizer may have caused trash to break free and stop up the system.Also vacuume to fuel shutoff could be off or stopped up too.
