2007 Kawasaki 1400 GTR will not start

Hi, just cleaned the fuel filter on my Kawasaki 1400 gtr 2007 and I can't seem to get it to fire up. I can hear the pump prime and there is definitely fuel moving through the lines. I have checked the fuses and relays, I cat get the bike to start. I am very familiar with bikes but this is the first injected bike I have owned, is there any advice or tips you could help me with? I would be most grateful. @

Hi, Denni and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Quick disconnect check ball stuck.
14. Compression below 75 PSI.
15. A stuck-bent-burnt valve.
16. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
17. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
18. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
19. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections are loose or connected to the wrong cylinders.
20. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
21. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
22. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
23. Faulty or corroded run/stop switch.
24. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
25. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
26. Check for engine trouble codes.

You cannot bleed the fuel injection system.Test the pump alone (not on the bike) for sufficient fuel supply.Also check the fuel pump relay.
If all that is ok next time you try to crank the engine (only with kill switch on, the fuel pump primes up) with lifted tank and opened air box, spray a bit of carb cleaner spray towards the throttle bodies.It will help.

SOURCE: when start go to rev it just dies

Remove the throttle stop adjuster and the air screw adjuster and spray carb cleaner in the holes.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Turn the pilot screw 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Check the float level. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower.Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Adjust the idle speed with the Throttle stop screw. This process should get you back on the road. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Most fuel filters are uni-directional (flow in one direction only).
They have an arrow cast into them to show direction of fuel flow.

Hi..is it possible if I replace the original exzos of kawasaki gtr1400 with just using original piping..?


If you mean a piece of straight pipe, then I would suggest that you think again. The exhaust cans are there to do a number of things, The first is to quieten the escaping gasses so that you can hear and so others are not deafened, They are also used to tune the engine The one that comes as standard is set up to get the best power and fuel economy from the engine.
