Ck the fuel tank petcock for proper position. Fuel is filling your cylinders and pasing the rings into the crankcase. Diluted oil will take out bearings. Good luck. I you must, turn off your fuel when parked and not running.

Blue smoke after being driven for awhile


if you can then smell the smoke. if it smells of petrol you will need a tune on your car ( getting too much petrol ). if it has no smell or very faint then it could be your head gasket. (water getting to the head causing steam ) worst case would be piston rings expanding through heat and letting oil through ( smell of oil burning ) check oil filler cap and dip stick for white gunk/check exhaust for water dripping out. these are head gasket signs

1994 Kawasaki ZZR 400 has fuel in the oil


Hi, Anonymous you're getting ready to go riding you pull out the dipstick to check your oil level and are greeted with the unmistakable smell of gasoline. What happens next depends on the following:
1. You have experienced this before and do not start the engine but do change your oil and filter leaving it 1 quart low until the engine reaches operating temperature then top off as necessary.
2. The amount of time your bike has been sitting, since the last time the engine was running.
3. The amount of gas and contaminants in the tank.
4. The oil pump location, exterior or interior.
5. The condition of your petcock gasket/seal/diaphragm.
If your gas tank was low and you start the engine probably nothing you would notice but if your gas tank was full and you start your engine the oil/gas mixture can blow into your air filter, come streaming out of your crankcase breather hose, and launch your oil tank cap followed by a blast of oil. The mess can be minor or you need to call a Hazmat team for assistance. This will also happen if you overfill your oil tank.
Next is the how and why gas can get into your oil tank/system:
a. The vacuum petcock rubber/diaphragm fails, which allows gas to flow from the fuel tank through the petcock, through the vacuum line into the intake manifold, then into the combustion chamber, where it seeps past the piston rings and into the bottom end.
3. Non-vacuum petcocks that are not turned to the off position will patiently wait until contaminants from the gas tank build up in between the carburetor needle and seat breaking the seal thus inviting gas to enter the combustion chamber eventually finding it's way into the bottom end and the oil tank.
4. Bottom line if you're not going to ride your bike for a while turn off the petcock.

I have a kawasaki ninja 600 1992. the trandmition has gas in it. i think gas is getiing in the air filter even. what is going on?


It could be the float chamber on the carb/s not sealing off with the petrol valve and filling up the air inlet and then draining down to the crank case.

How do you change the oil for a 2007 Kawasaki Eliminator 125? I'm also not sure what oil to use.


There is a single bolt on the bottom left center case half. Remove the drain bolt to drain the old oil. Use 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetics or oils with " Special " additives. Synthetics etc., can mess up the friction plates in the clutch. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Had trouble finding a sparkplug cap for my 86 zl-900. I put in a different cap, but it doesn't seal the sparkplug chamber and my bike has a hesitation when I hit the throttle? Also, how much oil do I need...


GPZ900 spark plug caps fit fine & are easier to get hold of, but get genuine!
3 litres with a filter change, 2.7 without

Hope this helps (if so please mark as helpful !!)

My engine oil light is on, and my bike wont stop reving


hmmm tricky.... knackered fuel tap sounds favourite, petrol vapour coming back round the system via breather back in to airbox making the revs go up, and probably oil is like water being mixed with petrol that's been leaking through. take of oil filler cap and smell oil, if it stinks of petrol, drain oil, if like water and full of petrol, change fuel tap, oil filter, and refill with new oil. carb float valves should stop petrol seeping through in theory but it'll always get past. just thought, if it is all that then airfilter will be full of petrol vapour as well, get a new one if paper, wash out if foam.
