Either a burnt out generator or a faulty regulator/ rectifier,on a z it's more likely to be the generator,try a website called z power for spares.

1985 Kawasaki ZL900 Eliminator only runs with choke on


As far as not running without choke, you really need to pull the carbies down and give them a once-over. Did the bike spend a lot of time off the road? Old gas turns into jelly and really blocks jets. Check the diaphragms and clean the jets. Carburetor cleaner (dry cleaning fluid) will help. Check float level as well. Putting gunk through the fuel will likely dislodge some scale and really block things up.

1986 Kawasaki ZL 900 A2 Eliminator backfires


Hi, Jonathan and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.
9. Improper valve clearance (too tight).
