Whats the firing order for a 1990 Kawasaki 600 zx ninja.

The ZX6, as with most four-cylinder motorcycle engines, is mounted transversely in the frame. When sitting on the bike, the cylinders are numbered 1-2-3-4 left to right.

Firing Order: the firing order is 1-2-4-3. There is no distributor for the engine, as ignition is controlled electronically.

Extra Ignition Information: there are only two ignition coils for this engine. Each coil has two spark plug wires. One coil fires cylinders 1 and 4. The other fires cylinders 2 and 3

1999 Toyota corolla garage said miss fire on cylinder 1 ,so I put new plug,wires, added in gas for injector,does act up going up a hill but not all the time,what would you try next have 170,00. On car

The garage probably retrieved a stored code which indicated the cylinder 1 misfire but left it to you to replace parts at random in an attempt to fix it. You need to get another diagnosis to reveal the applicable code or codes in order to focus in on the probable cause(s).

Hi i have a good spark on all cylinders and carbs are all set correctly but as you sit on bike and look down left hand cylinder is not fireing and keeps flooding

Just because a spark plug fires outside the motor doesnt mean its firing under compression. Start by making sure you have new spark plugs. If that doesnt help then do a compression test on all cylinders and compare.

Bought 99 zzr600 with restrictor

for most bikes, you need to buy an aftermarket ignition module/computer module, as the factory one is set to meet emmision controls, and engine protection. the cost varries from bike to bike , but its always worth it if you want to use the full potential of the bike

Firing on 2 Cylinders

Change the coils into a different order and see what happens. If it starts firing on 2 different cylinders then you know that you need to replace the coil packs
