Question about 2009 kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
MOTORCYCLE SITTING FOR 2 YEARS CLEANED CARB SOMEONE RESET AIR FUEL SCREWS I RESET AT 3.25 BIKE DOES NOT WANT TO START KAW XZ600C
If it has been sat for 2 years the fuel will have broken down so a full system flush with new clean fuel is a good 1st step.
If you have checked the carbs was there any sludge build up in the float chambers. If so I would dismantle and carefully clean with new fuel.
Make sure the tank is emptied and has not rusted. When you know you have clean new fuel. Try starting again.
When you get it running you need to use either a pair or easier 4 vacuum gauges to recalibrate the carbs.
This is fairly straightforward and a cheap set can be bought for as little as 8 pounds try Amazon. Obviously more expensive = better quality but if you are careful with them even a cheap set can be quite reliable.
Tip - Check each gauge against cylinder 1 for reading then you know if they are reading the same. Some are adjustable or just mark and set all to cylinder 1.
2.5 - 3.5 turns out sounds about right as a start point as you said.

i'd say the carb is gummed up especially the pilot jet (#16158) in this pic of the USA carb. may have to remove the carb & bowl and then remove the pilot jet (w/ flat head screw driver) and clean out the tiny holes.
the carb slide is installed backwards (turned 180 degrees). its #16025 in the pic. i've done this before on my daughter's XR70 and Z50. you'll know if its this when you move the choke lever, RPMs increase and decrease.
hope this worked for you and was fast enough.

when you get the bike started you need to adjust the pilot air screw. here's how= turn in clock wise until engine falters(mark that spot with a pin)then out counterclock wise until the engine falters(mark that spot also) then put the screw in half amount adjustment of the two marks.that will take care of if it is to lean or to rich.make sure the engine is good and warm before doing so.
