Question about 1985 kawasaki ZL 900 A1 Eliminator

1 Answer

My kawasaki eliminator 125cc is at the garage for tappets adjusting. the mechanic just rang to tell me he tried starting it up and there is zero power, no light, no neutral light, nothing

The bike started up fine this morning. I took it to the garage for the tappets to be sorted out. got a call from the mechanic telling me there is no power at all when he has tried starting her up. never had this issue before. he has checked all the fuses and still zero power. any ideas?

If the mechanic can not figure it out, take it to a different mechanic as it does does not sound right, to me.

SOURCE: kawasai z750, keeps blowing main fuse

Hi,

To my knowledge, there are no onboard electrical/electronic components capable of shorting and blowing the fuse with out blowing any of the secondary fuse. The main fuse could possibly blow due to a short in the wiring or an exposed/frayed wire touching the body. The three most likely areas would be:

  • wire harness leading to the regulator;
  • wire harness leading to the fusebox; and/or
  • wire harness leading to the ignition switch.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

make sure your foot is not holding the gear selecter after changing into second while riding as this would not let the bike go any higher through the gears

SOURCE: starter relay fuse keeps blowing

30 amps is heavy, so bypass nothing. Look for a short in a heavy circuit like the the headligh, starter (questionable because of delay) same with starter relay. You have a wire shorting out on the frame somewhere. It's that cut and dry.. Go to the auto parts store and buy an automatic circuit breaker that matches the fuse type your bike uses. but instead of a 30 amp, get a 20 or 25 amp. As long as theres a short it will trip and reset by itself saving you the hassle of changing fuse every few minutes.. While the breaker cycles on and off you can search for the short. When you find it, the breaker will stop cycling and stop in the on or reset. Good Luck

The cable is very easy to replace it by yourself. Just remove the carburator and unscrew its top and remove carefuly the slight valve.That years bike was 2 stroke. You can also easily tell by its exhaust header which is big and not just a simple pipe.

I had exactly the same problem. It turned out to be the ignition module. The first time that mine failed it was exactly as you described.
What happens when the ignition module goes is the bike will run fine then when the motor gets hot it will shut down. Then it won't start again until the motor has completely cooled down. Then it will start, run rough, get hot and shut down again.
You will find the ignition module behind the round cover where the points are on older bikes.
There is an LED light on it that will tell you if it is working properly or not. But replacing one probably isn't a project that you want to take on yourself.
Unless you are completely confident with working on vital electrical components of your bike then I would suggest taking it to an experienced mechanic whom you trust.

I was on the freeway and my bike started making a loud tapping noise. I lost power, but was able to coast off the freeway. I got it started again and the engine noise was really loud. Took it into HD and...


The oil is "gooey". Hmm. Cold 20W50 oil is gooey. There is nothing else in the engine to change the consistancy of the oil. Now, your oil tank is accessible without any tools. Possiblility someone could have put something in your oil. A good sniff of the oil should tell the story on that. If it smells like sugar or syrup, that's a good clue.

Now, If the bike wre a big twin, I'd guess you lost a roller on a tappet. Big Twins are notorious for this but the header says your bike is Sporty. I've never seen a Sporty lose a roller tappet. The Sportster has a much better valve train geometry than a Big Twin.

Have you checked for a blown head gasket? Evo Sportsters are known to be more vulnerable to that than the big twins. The easy way to find that is wait until it gets dark, start the engine, and rev it up a few times. Watch for a sharp flame to pop out betweent he head and the cylinder. It's easily seen in the dark.

Other than that, anything I could tell you would be a guess at best. Take a long screwdriver and put on bone in your head just in front of your ear. With the engine running, touch the engine in various places and try to determine where the noise is coming from. Sometimes this isn't easy as the noise will have a tendency to "travel through the engine". Otherwise the only thing you can do is a compression test or a leakdown test.

Good Luck
Steve
