Question about 2008 kawasaki Ninja 250R

Bike keeps dieing

Bike starts up fine, but when i get it up to 30 miles per hour, it starts hiccuping at me and even if i have high rpms, in stead of it sound like the engine is racing its a really deep sound. by the time i get it into 5th gear, it eventually looses rpms and dies. i have to come to a complete stop in 1st gear to start it back up again. we just cleaned the carbs, and did an oil change, i have the spark plugs but i couldnt get to them. any ideas? its an 05 250 ninja.

Measure the charging circuit.Stator output voltage (all three against ground), regulator-rectifier.
The stator should have an output of 13-14V at 2000rpm and rising while you turn the gas more open.The regulator should have a constant 13.5-14.5V at 3000rpm even when you turn on the high beams.Rising rpm should not change the reading on the battery's poles (regulator output)

Car wont go 30 mph


if when you get to 30 miles per hour the rpms are excessively high then the 3rd gear on you're transmission is out. you can try changing the transmission filter and fluid but most likely will not help and you will have to replace the transmission or have it rebuilt anyways. I'm assuming its an automatic transmit ion and therefore if high rpms at 30 miles per hour its sadly the transmission

Wont go faster than 70 miles per hour


It sounds like the pair valve hoses have come loose or un attached to where they are supposed to go.You have constant velocity carbs on that bike and those hoses need to be correct in order to gain top speed.They attach to the line that goes to the velocity diaphragms for the carbs.

Bought 18 yr. old grandson his first bike about 3 weeks ago (I'm his grandma). It is a used 2009 HD 883 Sportster. Only had 285 miles on it. First clue to troubles: The first day he rode it, his father...


Yes the brakes will work if the bike does so you can take a breath of relief because there is no brake booster it is just hydraulic pressure from the hand and foot switch. What i think may be happening with this bike is a faulty regulator rectifier. This will cause the battery to die with the key off AND it will also cause the battery not to charge correctly when the bike is running. It may hold a charge but will not charge further. What this unit will do is keep the voltage consistent from the alternator charge.

99 gsxr 750 losing power after 10k rpm if you have


The carburetor jets, there are 3 bands; A low, mid range and high range rpms. 10k would fall in the Mid range power. I would let the bike warm up a little bit and tweak the middle knob on the left side of the bike and keep in mind you need the right mixture so turn it quarter turn one way at a time per testing the mid range rpms while riding, tweaking 1/4 turns in between tests. If it gets worse, turn it the other direction until you find that sweet spot in the mixture of fuel/oxygen.

Generally the symptoms say the catalytic converter is clogged, you can't get any air out so you can't pull any air in, and the age of the vehicle says so too. Look and see if it has ever been replaced.

Yes! You will open those things up, and they will probably look pretty clean, but the problem with your carbs is in the Idle circuit - too small for you to see into. If you do a search of carb cleaning or related topics, you'll see that alot of folks with cab problems try to clean their carbs ... only to have to open them up again due to improper cleaning (They are difficult to clean properly, require alot of patience) So, I would suggest that you have them cleaned professionally, or at least buy good carb dip to get them really clean. Spray cans of carb cleaner are worthless. Might as well wash em with dish soap.
