Question about 2003 kawasaki KLR 250

1 Answer

1985 klr250 turnsignals don't flash

I have a problem with my turn signals. When I start the bike and let it idle, they blink just fine on both sides. All the bulbs light up and flash. When I rev the engine or when I'm riding and going to turn without stopping, they don't flash and just stay on until I turn them off. All of my other lights (tail, brake, headlight) work just fine at all times. What would be causing my problem? Is it a bad voltage regulator, a bad signal flasher, or something else entirely? Please note: this is a 1985 kl250-d, the list for motorcycle make, model, and year is required and only includes 2003-2005.

    A bad signal flasher will cause your problem I own a 1974 Kawasaki H2, 3 cylinder 2 stroke engine 750cc vibrator. The flasher relay is no longer avalible so I built my own all electronic flasher. You should be able to locate a flasher relay without any problem. I don\'t know where your flasher relay would be located

SOURCE: stutterring when riding

The carbs have been balanced but not synchronized? Each of the four carb slides needs to begin to open at the exact same time. Being out of sync can cause your problem. The balance and sync on a four cylinder bike is best done in the shop. If you try it yourself have a fire extinguisher handy. < < I am serious here.

Since the carbs have been cleaned and 'adjusted', I will take the liberty to note the air screw and the idle screw factory settings and how to set them. On each carb, GENTLY turn both screws inward until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw outward one and one half turns. Now you are back to the stock settings.

If your bike has CDI ignition, the timing is preset and is not adjustable.

Please rate this answer. Thanks Corrie!

SOURCE: headlight wont work all other lights good

A couple of ideas off the top of my head:

  1. I believe the headlight has a dedicated fuse. If it fails, all the other lights continue to work.
  2. High/low relay fuse? See
  3. Occasionally, the headlights will appear to have failed if the starter button sticks, since pressing the starter button kills the lights to direct more battery power to the starter. WD-40 is the short term cure for this.
My two cents, hope it helps.

SOURCE: Keihin CVK-D36 carbs on a 20 yr old ZZR 600

It sounds like your bike has been sitting in storage for an extended period of time (a year or more) - and the carburetors are plugged up. If this is the case, they will need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out.
If it hasn't been sitting (and the carbs aren't plugged up) then check that all of the normal tune-up items have been performed, especially valve adjustment, oil and filters, spark plugs, etc. If this fails to produce positive results, perform a compression check on the engine. Each cylinder must be able to produce at least 140 psi of compression in order to run and idle properly.

Turnsignals normal with headlights off.But , blink real fast when headlights on

Check you running light bulb.. some of those have two elements in them and one side could be blow inside the single bulb. The blinking is how the car tells you that you have a bad bulb, or maybe a short. Mostly likely it just a bulb.

How to deactivate the security alarm

Replace the batteries in the fobs. Or, if you know your security pin code, you can enter it my using the turn signal buttons.Turn the bike on and push in both turnsignal buttons at the same time until the red secruity lite begins flashing. Enter the first number of the code by pressing the left turn signal switch the same number of times as the first number of the code. Press the right turn signal switch once to advance to the next number of the code and use the left switch to enter the second number. Do this for all 5 numbers in the code. After all 5 numbers are entered, you can start the bike. If you don't know the code, take the bike to a Harley dealer and have them hook the bike up to Digital Technician and they can retrieve the code for you.

I have an '83 yamaha midnight maxim 750. All of my turn signal lights come on properly, but they do not blink. I'm not sure if there is an external relay or if it is part of the switch.

there is a flasher on the side of the bike near the starter cylinoid and that is what allows your lights to flash you may need to just replace it

Jeep - right turnsignal won't flash

Probably a bad ground on your front right signal, or a bad bulb. Try switching the right with the left, and see if the problem stays in the same place, or goes with the bulb.
