SOURCE: Starting problem

You probably need to add water to the battery or the battery is getting weak and needs to be replaced. Water should cover the top of the battery plates. Get a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger and charge the battery for a few hours.
The problem may now go away.

If it continues then put a volt ohm meter on the battery and see what voltage is present when revving the engine. The voltage should be about 2 volts higher than the listed battery voltage, as in 6v now 8v / 12v now 14v.
If not, have the dealer check the stator and rectifier/regulator.

Please rate this solution. (four diamonds would be nice) Thanks!

SOURCE: bike wont start/turnover neutral light goes out

Did the starter work when it was jumped by a car battery? If so, the problem is probably the battery in the bike. Take the battery to an automotive parts house and have it tested. Usually, they'll test the battery for free.

What is the CCA of your battery? Those big engines are hard to start and you may not have a battery with enough "Cold Cranking Amps" to turn the engine over. The old Harley Sprint (1973 & '74) was notorious for this. You really had to have a strong battery in that bike for he electric starter to work.

Some bikes have wiring that disables the starter if the transmission is not in neutral. Check on this as well.

SOURCE: kawasaki eliminator dont star any noise starter

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, if the problem is that the starter motor will not turn when the start button is pressed, determine if there is a clicking sound:

  • if there is, then the starter relay is activating but not engaging. To confirm, temporarily short the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. The starter motor should turn;
  • to locate the starter relay, follow the battery's + cable;
  • if starter motor will not turn even when the relay's terminals are jumped, the faulty starter motor most likely the carbon brushes and/or the commutator segments;
  • if the starter motor spins when terminals jumped, then the starter relay is faulty;
  • if there is no clicking sound, try with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the side stand folded up;
  • check the neutral switch / light.
Postback results of above tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500, when getting on it and shifting from 1st to 2nd it drops to neutral, however when riding it normal it goes through all of the gears just fine. Only has the problem with 2nd...

This is normal for Kawasaki's...2nd won't engage until the gearbox output shaft is turning fast enough to locate the centrifugal lockout bearing. This is to make it easier to find neutral at a standstill...

While riding the transmission shifts uncommanded and clicking noi

Assuming the drive chain and sprockets are in good condition.(check these first)
This sounds like and internal gearbox problem, a bearing has collapsed or a tooth has broken of a gear.
Riding it like this will cause more damage. The gear box will likely need to be stripped

So I have a 01 zx9 and the neutral light won't shut off. It will shift iinto all gears while I riding but will only go into 1st and neutral while I'm stopped. I know at times while I'm riding i have issues...

neutral light stays on ( grounded neutral wire / bad neutrl switch.
shifting problems
1. gear shift return spring weak or broken not a lowing the shift lever to to return to its neutral position to grab the next gear selector.
2. Oxidation on shift shaft and case preventing free movement of the shift shaft to return to the neutral position.
3. Clutch adjustment

Gear box problem on a kawasaki zzr 600 1994 reg.

Sounds somewhat like a bent shift fork not letting the slider gear dogs fully engage the gear. You probably have metal particles in the oil. Keep riding the bike and you will likely need major repairs. The metal particles are abrasive and thus destructive. Think of putting a teaspoon of fine sand into the gearbox. You can trash an engine pretty quick that way. I suggest you fix the gearbox now, before the top end gets too involved.

Please rate this answer. Thanks!
