How long did you charge the new battery before you ran the bike?

I'd have given it a minimum of 6 hours on a trickle-charger.

If you did this then you have got a problem with your charging system as Yeskimoe said, although i've not seen reg/recs give trouble on big Kawis.

Get the battery fully charged again then...

..put a voltmeter across your battery (red to positive, black to negative, 20V DC range)) and rev the bike to 4000 rpm, you should show around 14.5 volts, much less than this and the charging circuit is suspect.

The alternator belt might need tensioning.

Try checking your charging system. i would start with regulator/rectifier. they're common to go out.

Carburetor?


Try cleaning the carbs. Does the engine run any better with the choke on? If so the carbs need cleaning.

Hi, my zxr 750starts and runs fine, however when i open the throttle the engine dies (bogs down)and doesnt pul at all, ive changed feul filter


This sounds like the carbs need cleaned. The main jet is not allwoing enough fuel through when you rev it up so it bogs until you let off the throtle and it will catch up again.

1993 Kawasaki 750R - Model M , charging issue - WEIRD !!!


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you checked the 30 Amps main fuse and its holder clips? It would be integrated with the starter relay. The fuse or the fuse holder may have heat related problem(s) causing it to loose conductivity when hot.The fuse may require replacement even if it tests good and/or the fuse holder would need cleaning / crimping. To locate the starter relay (main fuse), follow the battery cable from the + terminal of the battery.

Please postback results.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

1993 Kawasaki 750R - Charging issue - Weird!!!


i know this sounds silly ,but when you bought the battery had it been activated,new batterys are critical in their first charge and you cannot use a standare type automotve charger,if bought dry the battery needs to have the acid filled ,left to sit for at least 2 hours prior to charging,once it has sat for the 2 hrs with the acid in,the new battery will need to be charged with a "cteck"or similar type charger for at least 13 hrs before it can be put into normal service,what happened with yours i think is that sure you gave it a charge but it has only recieved a "surface charge"and will be usable for a very short time,it may recover for a brief period and go again untill the surface charge dissipates,(or in other words ..runs out of charge)best thing you can do with the battery is take it to a auto electrician and have the battery cycled and conditioned,this is not expensive to do and will give you piece of mind,after conditioning the battery shouldngive excellent service,i have the battery in my goldwing coditioned about every 12 months and i have the same battery that was in the bike when i bought the bike 8 years ago and still no electrical or battery problems(costs about $25 to get it done)once a year but that beats $280 for a new one...hope this helps
