Make sure it has the proper grade of gas. and make sure the petcock isn't plugged, they have a filter attached to it inside the tank. pretty much make sure its getting enough fuel

What is the ratio for the speedometer of a 1981 kawasaki ltd 750? Looking for new speedometer and tachometer


Should be 2240rpm = 60mph. This is pretty standard across most Japanese bikes. Pretty well any speedo will work, if it has the right fitting. I used a 1973 TS185 speedo on my GSX750 until I could get a new cluster!

1981 Kawasaki 550 LTD the 2 center cylinders don't fire.


Hi, Anonymous you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue. Multi carb banks should be bench "SYNC"
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes, multi-cylinder engines should be within 10-15% of each other if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or its counterpart for integrity.

Trying to teach my girlfriend to ride this motercycle and wanted to show her the shifting pattern for this bike (1981 Kawasaki Z440 LTD )before I put her on it.


All most every motorcycle has a push down to down shift and pull up to change to the higher gears pattern.The only exception I am aware of is racing conversions on road race bikes which are opposite of what I stated. Your 1981 model has a six speed gear box with the very first gear being the one you will find pushing the shifter down until it stops snicking through the gears and firms up a bit. Then you have neutral the first spot when you pull it up and then 2,3,4,5,6.

1992 Kawasaki 750 Vulcan Shuts Off


It sounds like you are running out of battery, and that is why the bike is quitting.

Have you checked the charging?
Check the battery voltage with a meter after you have charged it. should be 13.5 volts or so. Start the bike, you may have lost a little but the voltage should increase as you watch the volt meter, rev the bike, Any increase?
If there is no increase or if it is decreasing in voltage then I would suspect you charging system.

Hope this is of some help.

Try the web. Google "motorcycle salvage kawasaki" You can probably find one there. Sorry, but getting it shipped to Africa is out of my league.
