Question about 1997 kawasaki ZX-7R

Kawasaki zx7 won't start

Hi, my 97 Kawasaki zx-7 won't start. I had a problem with the lights not coming on when I put the key in the ignition. After removing the gas tank, I noticed that the plug from the ignition wires was sitting on the engine block and part of it had melted. We managed to get the lights to come on, but now the bike won't start. The battery is fine and I've replaced the starter relay. It seems like it wants to start, but there's no spark. Any ideas on what it could be?? I was thinking that maybe the ignition switch or ignition itself are in need of being replaced.

Hi. I had the same issues as what your saying. What we found was that the leads are a screw in into the spark plug cap. Unscrew the leads to the cap, trim the ends off by a mm or 2 and re-screw back into cap that goes onto spark plug. There renown for pulling out and giving weak or no spark.

SOURCE: My zx-12 turns off after running for a while?

Sounds like your charging system is failing. You should have 12 volts on a battery when not running, and around 13.5 or so while running. Check it with a meter if you can.

SOURCE: my 97 kawasaki zx7 is dumping fuel into the airbox

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described problem indicates that the fuel inlet valve(s) are not closing properly either because of float height or because of a foreign matter lodged between the valve and the port.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

1996 Kawasaki ZX-7R died suddenly


Hi, Anonymous you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away from the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

1995 Kawasaki Ninja ZX7R no spark


Hi, Daniel and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. 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 preliminary 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.
3. 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.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset
