Kawasaki zephyr 1100 not running right

I bought a kawasaki zephyr 1100 which hasn't run for 13 years. i've had all the carbs off and cleaned them out. the main jets and the idle jets are all clear but it won't run. it seems to idle on four cylinders but when i open the throttle it coughs and splutters and doesn't want to rev. the fuel was left in the bike for 13 years and was like toffee when i drained it. does anyone know of any cleaning agent i can use to flush it out further? or if you have any other suggestions to what it might be i would be grateful.

The carbs have some very tiny passages that will easily be blocked by that varnish reside. You will need to pull the carbs and flush every jet drilling with an aerosol carb cleaner like gumout Remove the jet and blow the spray cleaner through, rinsing out ant gum build up. Clean all the passages you can find and the rest of the carb linkage and bod. Idle passages are vacuum drawn and if your manifold vacumm is low then the fuel cannot be sypyphoned. to keep the engine running. Vacuum leaks are common on bikes that sit because the hoses dry up and loose thier seal. Check all you hoses and replace any in doubt. Good luc And let me know, please.- Ned

Bike did start up on full choke but wouldnt rev now it wont start at all now can anybody please help


It possibly needs the carbs cleaned out.
You may try draining the carb fuel bowls, into a clean container and check for brown residue or water, there will be a small drain screw on the bottom of each carb and this will allow clean fuel into the carbs

Air box


Because the K&N filters are much less restrictive than the original airbox and filter, the bike may run lean, and you MAY have to have the carb jets reworked/changed.
