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.

My zx7r, ive got no Ignition or Neutral light, I have replaced the ignitor unit,the clutch switch, the battery,the side stand switch,the junction box, the fuel pump and still no ignition? I took off my...


Hi, Anonymous 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.
