Kawi 1995 GPZ 1100 Power problems

Attempted first start of year, hooked up battery and had good power to the bike. As I was tightening the battery terminals, I heard a click and lost all power. I checked all fuses under the seat and all is good. There is a relay or module bear the battery with a 30 amp fuse and that is ok also. Is it possible that I blew a relay or module ???

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I understand that you have checked the:

  • battery - that it is fully charged and that the cables & terminals / connectors are clean and tight;
  • fuses - including the 30 Amp main fuse;
  • starter relay - there is +12 on the white wire.
Should the above hold true, then the only remaining components to suspect / check would be the always on +12 connectors and/or the ignition switch.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

SOURCE: Accidentally wiring the battery in reverse has killed electrics!

When you do such things, you generally blow what is called a fuse link. I can't find a manual to suit your machine. Follow the positive wire from the battery, you should come across what looks like a couple of little boxes with a piece of wire in the middle. This is the link. It is put into machines to prevent major damage if you happen to make a mistake. If you cannot find this, then it is an auto electrician job.

I doubt that jump starting your machine would have cooked your fuel pump.Does the machine still turn over if not you may have cooked the E.M.U if so the easiest way to check the fuel pump is to unplug it from the loom useing two suitable lengths of wire conect the pump directly to the battery if the the pump emits hum it is working & you will need to check your wireing for possible burns you say the fuses all checked ok I can only assume that you only cheked the fuses by eye in which case it is not allways easy to tell a fuse is blown by visual inspection the only proof positive way is with a multimeter. Another simple test is to bridge the fuse holder first remove the fuse then useing a short piece of wire (no more than fifteen amp you dont want cook the system if there is a fault elsewhere) bare the wire at each end & place it in where the fuse normaly resides turn on the Ignition if the pump comences to function discard offending fuse insert a new one & of you go. hope you are in the wind again soon

Ok, locate and check the fuse at the starter solenoide, this is the main power fuse, follow the red battery lead until you locate the solenoide, here you should find under a cover a 30 amp fuse, hope this helps , paul

I purchased a Kawasaki GPZ 1100 1995 model there was no ignition switch completely unattached from the wire harness what wires would i connect to hotwire

Phillip, the GPZ is essentially a KZ 1100. If the color codes are correct, then if you put the red and the yellow wires together, this should give you power. However, as a temporary fix only, I will give you some good replacement options that should help you out. ^^ Good luck, and hope this helps.

1995 Kawasaki GPZ 1100 no spark

Hi, Davidalan and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. 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.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
11. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

It does not start!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of initial things to try / check (if have not been done) on a bike that will not start:
  • externally charge the battery and have it load tested;
  • check / clean / tighten battery connectors / terminals;
  • check / clean / tighten fuse & its fuse holders;
  • check / clean / tighten major power connectors, wiring;
  • temporarily bypass the safety interlocks before starting; or
  • pull clutch lever in and/or side stand folded up when starting;
  • temporarily jumper the 2 big terminals of the starter relay;
  • check for presence of spark at the plug tips;
  • check for the presence of fuel through the drain hose/ screws.
Postback results of above initial tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I need proper torque specs for clutch relese springs 84 gpz 1100

You are over torquing the springs. Buy a generic manual from your automotive shop. ZX11 specs are much higher than the GPZ.

I cant get the bike to fire when i try to crank it it just floods out

Not really shure it is the timing. I would make shure the fuel is on. check the spark plugs. and it just might be a carburetor issue. Hope that helps.
