Kawasaki zx7 starts but won't stay running

Sounds like a fuel issue, could be sticking floats or carbs are filling but as soon as the engine uses the fuel, it cuts out. Check the petrol coming from the tank has a good flow, you'll probably need to run the engine as fuel is drawn out via a vacuum tube between the tank & carbs.

Bandit 1200 oil in crankcase

No i would not expect it to, if anything blocking the vent hose to the gas tank would cause a vacuum and stoping fuel from flowing as easy , most likely a faulty fuel pump diaphram or incorrect float height.

You may find the petrol filter is blocked. That is usually at the top of the petrol tap in the tank. Unscrewing the petrol tap will reveal it.
I always recomend the manufacturers parts as they have more expertise than us!
Fit original carburettors, they were designed for the engine after all.

The plug on the radiator is a sensor usually for overheating or temperature purposes. There should also be a vent tube coming off of your tank. That might be what the other tube is for. Hope this helps.

Gas tank pressure in bandit 1200 1997

Check out this site,
I hope it helps you to some degree.

Actually the fill nozzle at the pump is supposed to vent back pressure of the vapors.. When filling my bike, I hold the boot of the nozzle back so it doesn't block the vapors and kick off the fill process. Good Luck.

After the tank fills water contiues to flow thru

The fill valve needs replacement unless you can take the top off snd find out what is keeping it from closing. I had one I took apart for the same reason and found a piece of plastic in the valve seat. Good Luck, Ned

Gas tank over flows when filling up

There is a tube that run down into the tank inside the fill pipe, it vents air as the tank is filled, if it is blocked your problem occurs, most likely it is kinked.
