I suggest you dont run the engine as it sounds that it could be very drastic will have to strip the engine to find the fault.good luck.

Hi, Paul for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry.

I posted a similar problem on my Kawa Vulcan. The coils work, there is power, but no spark at the plugs itself. I heard that it might be a "stator pickup" problem, but waiting for an answer as well !

I just replaced the clutch plate, disc, release bearing and pilot bearing with new oem ones. After installation, at idle speed my clutch is noisy. If i depress the clutch pedal, the noise goes away.

the lay shaft bearings inside the gearbox are worn,remove level plug and pump a grease gun full of grease into gearbox as this will help quieten it ,

Die on sidestand

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To your query, no, the ZZR250 should continue to idle. If the engine dies while idling, it indicates that the engine has starved for fuel which then could be caused by:
  • clogged / blocked idle jets;
  • too much air (air filter removed or replaced with open / free breathers such as those by K & N);
  • too little vacuum on the intake manifold hence the petc0ck closes and fuel is not allowed to flow to the carbs. Try setting petcock to PRI;
  • carbs are not in balance/sync.

Solution would require carb pulldown, checking / cleaning. Completely dis-assemble and soak non-rubber parts in carb cleaner. The idea is to descale / remove the varnish like film coating that would have developed. This would also ensure that the idle jets are not clogged. Note how many turns the air idle mix (pilot) screw is set to.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa. Happy Holidays.

ZZR250 won't start. fuel tank full. well charged battery can turn engine over. no firing. One month back engine can be started. No overheating then. What's the problem? Bob.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initial check is to remove the spark plug after giving it a try to start:
  • if the plugs are wet with fuel, then the carbs are OK, if not then it would most likely be a fuel delivery issue to the combustion chamber;
  • connect the sparkplugs back to their wires and lay it against any metal part;
  • crank the engine;
  • note if there would be spark;
  • no spark, then an electrical issue;
  • good spark, then back to fuel issue.
Postback results of above initial tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I have a major tapping noise from a 3lt diesel turbo toyota surf .constant loud tapping ,quietens with oil pick up a little. not a knocking just a tapping

lifters noisy,lots of miles on engine?as oil pressure gets higher and engine warms up(everything expands a little and quietens a little)it gets better,try fresh oil thats thicker for worn engines,and or check tappets(valve adjustment)if its applicable to this engine

My ZZR250 have no spark at all.

the spark is attributed to the coil. Use a multitester to test for continuity on the terminals. No response means no connection. Another way to test this without the use of a multitester is to switch the coil with a working coil. If it still doesnt have that spark but works with the other connection. then check the CDI.
