Question about 1998 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja
Firstly, my bike felt like it was running on three cylinders, I rode through this,, I decided it would be an idea to check and change the plugs, which in turn I did, nice and tight.. following this the bike broke down on my way home from work. The RAC guy came, the bike would start some times but under throttle would cut out immediately,, there was a clear clicking sound coming from the fuel pump,, which I have now changed,, yet the issue remains,, sometimes the bike starts and rides ok, but sometimes it has a different tone, will not rev over around 6k revs, just all feels wrong. A guy that worked on my bike a few weeks ago said my reg-rec might be shot and need replacing, there was evidence of some wires having melted in the bike.. do we think that the reg-rec might be an intermitant problem which has in turn caused my fuel pump issue etc etc.
Hi, Peter and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Fuel tank empty.
10. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Failed fuel pump.
14. Failed pressure regulator.
15. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.

You changed the back pressure in the exhaust and that is what causing your problem either put the washer back in or have the carb properly jetted

SOURCE: engine turns over but wont start
could that be a possible fuel line crack? or the pet **** is fouled up. i got the same problem found 1/2 in crack in the fuel line. from trying to start it before i found the crack i dryed out the carbs. im a girl and its my first bike just learning

One or both of the floats are stuck open giving the carbs fuel constantly. The extra fuel runs into the intake, fills the cylinder, gets past the piston rings and then fills the gearbox and overflows onto the floor. Pull the carbs and clean them. Some trash, ( such as rust from the tank ), is not letting the float needle to seat. Be sure to sync and balance the carbs after re-installing. Also, turn off the gas at the tank when you are not riding. If you already are doing this, the petcock must not be shutting off properly and needs to be replaced. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I think you could have an intermitant open circuit inside your battery. One of the links joining the cells is loose and makes contact sometimes and not other times. Replacing the battery could fix the problem. There appears to be notthing amiss in your charging system.

SOURCE: I have a Kawasaki Ninja,
There are adjustments on carbs for low speed air intake (air mixture screw)find out factory settings and reset that mixture.Sounds to me like those adjustments are out of sink.If so the bike will run very bad from idle to about 1/4 throttle then run great from there up to full throttle.this definitly sounds like carb problem.
