Question about 1982 kawasaki Z 250 C

Noisy timing chain

My Kawasaki Z 250 C was in storage for 6 months. When I started it the timing chain was noisy, it was not noisy prior to storage. Will this fix it self if I run the engine until it gets hot? I'm worried I may break the chain or the chain may jump off the cog.

Did you check oil for moisture or change the oil before you started it? Sometimes when things get stored they end up getting moisture in the oil and this can lead to rust forming inside and of course improper lubrication. I would definitely have started with a oil change before starting it. Anyways if that's not it your tentioner isn't working properly because if im correct it is self adjusting.

Testimonial: "Thank you. I know checking the oil is an obvious thing to do, however I started looking for deeper problems instead of looking at the obvious. Thank you"

Timing..I.E. late firing


Hi, Spiderman699 for backfiring the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test "WARNING" you can have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps and the battery must be replaced.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Timing chain


Usually a chain doesn't just break. Some other event happened causing the chain to snap. If it's just spinning over and not starting I would do a compression check. I'd be willing to bet that there is low or no compression. Probably a bent valve. Not enough to make it noisy but enough to not have any compression. Once a chain breaks it would be in your best interest to have the whole motor checked out. if you just try to put a band-aid on it you will probably be spending more in the long run due to unforseen issues that haven't been explored.

Noisy.. posssible chain or rear sprocket?


It is probably both chain and sprockets. Try rolling the bike backwords, if it is making a clicking sound that does not sound normal, it is time for a new chain and sprockets.

Bike starts well, 2006 but only has 1000 miles on it. sat in storage during move (7 months). drained gas and disconnected battery. idles fine but when you give the the gas to go or give it gas period it...


If the bike ran fine prior to putting it in storage and all you did was drain the fuel and disconnect the battery, its likely moisture ( condensation) developed in the carbs while it sat. this type of thing happens when fuel is drained. Your best bet is to remove the carbs and clean the jets. Its my opinion and experience to put fresh fuel in a bike along with (stable) fuel treatment prior to storing them. With the stable added to the fuel, the fuel will hold good for about 1 year.. Replacing the battery and starting them and letting them warm up to operating temp monthly while in storage is always a good idea..
I hope this helps..

Have a 2008 kawasaki 1500 with excessive noises from rear lifters, also noises cam chain slap, my mechanic keeps telling its normal. thanks


YOUR MECHANIC IS SOMEWHAT RIGHT TO AN EXTENT. KAWA 1500'S ARE CHARACTERISTICALLY NOISY IN THE VALVETRAIN! BEEN AROUND THEM SINCE THEY WERE BORN. NOW IF YOURS IS PARTICULARLY NOISY, HAVE THE MECHANIC CHECK THE VALVETRAIN AND CAM CHAIN TENSIONERS FOR PROPER ADJUSTMENTS. THIS IS CRITICAL FOR THE LIFE OF THE ENGINE!

if your chain is makeing nois it would be a good idear to replace the chain a manual cam chain tenshioner will take the slack up but what about the valve timeing a worn chain will throw it out due to the chain stretching plus the manual tenshioner will make the guides wear faster if ya auto matic tenshioner has reached its limit that means replace chain no ifs or buts
