Kawasaki zzr600e wont start

My zzr600e has been standing since last October when it was running fine, now it wont start.Iv'e replaced the battery and the starter solenoid. The starter motor turns but will not turn engine over. I put a socket on the end of starter one way clutch and the engine turns by hand but will not start on the button. Before I stripped the alternator cover off the bike would start with a bump start. Any ideas pleeeeeze

If you are not getting the starter to wind after pressing the start switch check these probs.Have you checked the fuses for the ignition switch? Check all fuses. Track the wiring from switch and check all plugs and connections.  Turn ignition on and try clutch starting the bike to see if the motor will run once it is cranked over. If you need to bump it, make sure all your connections and wiring are all making good contact. You must conduct a process of ilimination in order to rectify the fault. good luck.

1995 KLE500 Kawasaki: neutral blue light doesn't show and when clutch is released to engage in gear, engine cuts off


Hi, Ishmael the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

Did you just charge battery or did you have it load tested? I would bring battery in to a local parts store. They will most likely load test it for free. I would definetly start there. If battery is ok, then we can diagnose from there.

Klx250 wont run it has spark new battery and cleaned carby but wont fire up will occasionaly start and run fine


Remove the filter or filter connection to the back side of the carb and spray it with starter fluid. If it starts when you do that each time, the carbs still have a problem and need to be cleaned out again or adjusted correctly.

You can check the primary and secondary resistances in the coils, dont know offhand the values, but the coils should be the same.
The fact is gets worse as it warms could mean a carb float is flooding,
The vacumn fuel tap can be a problem, this can also cause fuel to flood into the sump , and cause this problem.
