On a 2002 ninja ex250f the idle is set but then it will goes up why?

Its seems natural. because when your starting cold the engine is not at the normal operating temperature. So when the engine heats up the idle goes up that means it reached the Normal operating temp.

It is located below your seat. Just try open your seat or from sides of bike. Check the AH of battery and replace it with similar one.

2008 Ninja 250r Wont start it just sits there and cranks it only has 654 miles on it any suggestions? thanks

Pull the spark plug and squirt some gas in the cylinder, put the plug back in and get the juices flowing. Sometimes the fuel pump goes dry and needs to be primed, the crank alone won't do it, it needs some umph! Hope this helps.

2006 Kawasaki Ninja 250 will not start

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your post "engine will not turn start", are you referring to the starter motor not turning or is it cranking but will not run?
  • if no crank, check the starter relay;
  • will not run, verify that there is spark at the end of the plugs;
  • will not tun, verify that there is fuel in the bowl of the carb (drain again);
  • if it has a fuel valve, set to PRI.
Incidentally, any clicking sound when you press START? Pls postback updates.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
