Question about 2005 kawasaki EL 125 Eliminator
I had the same problem once. found out it was the switch under the kick stand it did not release when the kick stand was up. So i cleaned all the dirt from around it and sprayed with oil it worked fine after that

I think it would be a good idea to service the fuel system. ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working with gasoline related items. Remove the petcock, (gas valve) and clean the filter screen.
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road. Get back to me if it doesn't.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!
