SOURCE: choke on

Sounds like your idle jet is clogged. This is caused by gasoline evaporating out of the carburator during long periods of disuse which can leave a varnish residue. You will probably need to remove the float bowl and remove the jet to clear it as carb cleaning additives in the gasoline are usually useless for this problem. It is vital that you use the exact fit screw driver on float bowl screws as they are usually very tight. The jet will have a very small opening and you could damage the jet if you use the wrong method to clean it (do not use a drill bit). First try a carburator cleaner spray with the small plastic straw that comes with them. Look thru the jet hole by holding it up to a strong light to see that it is indeed clogged. Then try holding the small straw in the jet orifice and forcing the cleaner into and through the jet. Be careful that you don't deflect the spray back into your eyes. Use eye protection. You could try to soak the jet in a cap full off the cleaner for a while. If that doesn't work a very small stiff wire might work to push the clog out (from a wire brush?). Then try the spray method again.

SOURCE: my rev counter does not work on my kawasaki er5 1999

The ER5 has got an electronic rev-counter, no cable.

Like the oval rear brake-drums this is another ER5 bugbear, the rec/rec fails, the battery boils and the rev-counter is usually a victim too.
Often on ER5 specific forums there will be someone who repairs the circuit board and sells the repaired units much cheaper than a new one. it's usually a tiny zener-diode that is killed.

SOURCE: kawasaki er500 right rear indicator wont work

what right rear indicator do you mean?indicator of flasher?tail light?pls.make it clear so that i could help...if your problem is the indicator lights,it is surely attached to the batery line.Now,you can trace it by looking for the line/wire of the said bulb first,it is commonly a red wire.In vestigate it if there is a cut or pulled out wire particularly to the joints or connector.
..Second,you can check the negative line of the said light which is commonly black wire.,try to check it by simply directly attach the black wire to the body or to the crankcase of the motorcycle itself.Third,clean the bulb socket to remove rust & dirt.

Drop of petrol leaking from front corner of rocker cover when starting with chock on


new choke cable maybe. Or choke is not actually a choke like on a car. It is actually a fuel richener. There are three jets in each carb. The main jet, idle jet and the starter jet. The main and idle jet can be removed. The starter jet, which is key to the problem, is pressed in. It is the small brass jet by the main jet. This gets clogged very easily. You see, this jet fills a small chamber under the choke rod from the fuel bowl. When the rod is slid out of the way when you slide the choke lever back, the fuel in this chamber is pulled into the cylinder when it turns over. I had to use a very small stainless wire to clean it out. I used a wire cut from my wire wheel.

Disassemble each carb completely. Soak each carb in carb cleaner and wash off per instructions. Then poke the wire into the starter jet until it goes through. You will be able to blow air through it if it is unclogged. Once you do this it should fire right away and then idle. What you are doing by opening up your idle screw is allowing more air in to pull fuel in through the idle jet. Make sure you sync your carbs too. Smooth idle is also dependant on that.

Just picked up this 1996 GPZ 1100 ABS. Starts ok with full choke but does not idle. Need to keep the choke on to keep the bike running. Once I close the choke the bike does not idle. Checked for air...


It sounds like the carbs are gummed up from sitting. The fuel that we get now is very unstable and gums up quickly. When you choke the bike it is bypassing the carbs and that is why it runs. I would suggest a carb clean and fuel tank flush, the carbs are very intricate and should only be worked on by a qualified technician.
Thanks,
Steve

My 1995 zzr250 started cutting out on me whilst traveling at about 100km the other day. I slowed down and then it cut out. Managed to start her back up and got her home. Yesterday i gave her a service...


Hi, Carver_c and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle circuit and transfer ports clogged.
2. Air fuel mixture adjustment too lean.
3. Pilot jet clogged.
4. Faulty accelerator pump.
5. Float level too low.
6. Float bowl contaminated old fuel, water, dirt, rust, etc.
7. Float bowl vent or overflow tube clogged.
8. Fuel flow to carburetor restricted.
9. Intake manifold leak.
10. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
11. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
12. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
13. Multi carburetors not in sync.

Kawasaki Ninja 250 running problem


This could be due to timing screw being incorrectly set
Locate gold timing screw on the carbrettta turn it clockwise only slightly till bike idles without choke on, Then when choke it on it should idle a touch higher.

Cannot start not using the choke and rpm flattens at 4000 rpm


The air screw and the idle screw turn inward until they LIGHTLY seat, then back out one and one half turns. For the dead spot, pull the slide out of the carb and move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. Two notches if needed.

The pilot jet covers the idle function. It sounds like this is not the problem though. The high idle indicates a lean fuel mix. An air leak is leaning the mix. It could be bad intake manifold gaskets, carb and manifold not down tight, loose spark plug, cylinder head not tight, bad head gasket.

If you do want to adjust the pilot jet the, often it is adjustable from the outside of the carb. It is normally located just out side and next to the main jet. It will be brass and have a slot for a small screw driver. If no outside screw, then an inside adjustment screw means removing the float bowl. Turn the jet screw outward 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
