Question about 1994 kawasaki ZZR 600

1 Answer

1994 Kawasaki ZZR 600 flat spots when accelerating.

My ZZR600 1994 was miss firing so changed the plugs, air and fuel filters. Now ticks over and sounds a lot better (a little hesitation at idle) but now when accelerating about 30mph experiencing flat spots, surges and at times no acceleration which wasn't happening before. This is my winter hack so want to avoid any unnecessary costs so before I book it into a mechanic, any ideas? Cheers @

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Installation of a different camshaft.
2. Different exhaust system or "STRAIGHT PIPES"
3. Faulty advance curve.

6. Carburetor internal malfunction.
7. Fuel mixture too rich.
8. Fuel mixture too lean.
9. Extremely dirty air filter.

SOURCE: surging while driving

This is a notorious problem with the Windstars. There are oodles of ground straps in them. Make sure they are all clean and tight. ESPECIALLY THE STARTER GROUND STRAP. If it's loose, the car may just die when you turn up into a driveway or parking lot or just go over a bump. If you notice the "Check Engine" light comes on momentarily, at the time of the surge or the engine kills completely, it's DEFINITELY the starter ground strap! My engine used to kill at odd times -- even when on the freeway going at 75!-- Then we'd go over another bump and SURGE_O_RAMA, the engine's running again or I'd restart it and it would be fine for a while. What's happening is the loose ground strap loses it's connection when you go over a bump in the road. The next bump jogs it back into the connected mode, albeit tenuous at best. All of the computer techs couldn't find the problem. It took a 70-year old seat-of-the-pants mechanic to make the SIMPLE fix. It took so long to find the common-sense mechanic, however, that the down-shot of all of the surging tanked my tranny, which I had to have rebuilt! AND then, after I drove away from the 5-star AAA BBB "transmissing" shop, I found that THEY HAD NOT TIGHTENED ALL OF THE GROUND STRAPS! I took it back. They had no knowledge of ALL 9(?) ground straps and had to take it to THEIR mechanic who tightened them ALL down! It's been 5 years since then and I haven't had another problem with it. RULE OF THUMB: EVERY TIME YOU HAVE THE VAN SERVICED have them tighten-down ALL of the ground straps! If your mechanic doesn't know what you are talking about, go find a new mechanic. Generally, the AAA "Top Shops" are your best bet. They fix things right the FIRST time. I still haven't found a manual that has all of the ground straps listed, by the way.

SOURCE: NOISY FUEL PUMP ON 650 YAMAHA VSTAR (2002)

your fuel pump suppose to Hum and gently vibrate only when working normally, clacking sound would only mean that it is having a hard time or inconsistently supplying gasoline into your engine. Have it checked and see if any improvement would happen.

SOURCE: Hesitation and Rough Idle

Hi, you stated that the original fuel pump is still installed. I would replace this pump as soon as possible. this may be the key issue. You can check the voltage on this part by using a voltage meter. you should get 14 volts here. if its less than 14, it will run weak , in return, preventing proper fuel flow. I would also check the injection system to see if its running properly as well.


please rate and god bless.

Hi, Navyframer20 and the usual suspects are:

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 cursory 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. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark

6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor has oil in the bowl due to excessive oil in pre-mix.
14. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
15. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
16. Fuel filter clogged.
17. Old or contaminated fuel.
18. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
19. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
20. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
21. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
22. Incorrect valve timing.
23. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
24. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
25. Incompatible performance parts.

My zzr 600 1994 wont go past 80mph if it reaches that. at about 70-80 mph if the throttle is pulled a little far too open acceleration stops, a reduction in throttle increases power and then slows it down...


what condition is your air filter in? put in some new plugs and go from there. if the air filter and new plugs don't fix the problem check yorclutch adjustment.
