    Carmen, Can you get a meter on the battery and tell what the DC volts are when the key is off, and again when you are trying to start it? Does lights and directional work? Do they dim while trying to start?

Look for and trouble shoot the kill switch, key if u have one all the way to the starter. Proove everything is operational from your battery foreward. If it was a sudden issue my best guess is electrical. If it was a problem that increased with time I would go with Plug and Fuel delivery. Filters etc

Motorcycle will push start but not ignition switch start


Does it turn over when trying to start? If no then it could be the starter, switch, or battery. Sounds like the starter, especially if you tried another switch.

Hi, Matt it saddens me to inform you that you have to put on your Battery Priest Robe and prepare yourself for the Ceremonial "LOAD TEST" but before you begin, maintenance type batteries must be topped off with distilled Holy Water and all batteries must present their terminals to the battery charging altar to receive the electrical infusion of Holy Ions until they have reached a 100% full charge of 12.5 volts or better.
Below is a quick and easy test to see if your battery is in good condition or needs Last Rites and must be replaced.
1. Start by disconnecting the spark plug cables.
2. Adjust voltmeter to DC volts 20-volt range
3. Place the voltmeter leads to the battery terminals.
4. Turn the run/off switch to run.
5. Turn the ignition switch on and press the starter button.
6. Watch the voltmeter as your engine turns over for 15 seconds.
7. If the voltage drops below 9.5 volts, the battery is faulty and must be replaced.

Check down by the battery and the fuse box area and make sure that all the fuses are good. It may have blown a fuse when you where hot wiring it.

99 kawasaki ninja EX250 motor swap for a 98 NINJA EX250 MOTOR


I would try charging the battery. Take it off and put it on a slow trickle charge overnight. Batteries usually only last 3-4 years if it is an acid battery.

Ninja 250r headlight, does bike need to be running for it to work


your lights should always work with the key in on position for safety reasons, eg if you had to pull over and it was dark you would turn the engine off but would still need lights.

1992 ZXR 250 Ninja locked ignition & brakelight stuck on


Try jiggling the handle bars as you turn the key to relieve the pressure off the ignition lock. The kawasaki's have one position past the off "Lock" position that is called the "Acc" this will leave your brake light on. So the key switch goes "Acc", "Lock", "On". Make sure your key is in the Lock position and not the Accesory position

My 2008 Ninja 250 tires to start itself


The switch is the most likely source of the problem. Check it with a volt ohmmeter. Put the key in off and check the terminals. Next turn the key to the 1st position and check the terminals then on any further positions. The next time the bike self starts is when you want to re-check the switch terminals.

You know, this has all the signs of an internal short in the switch. Just tell the dealer to give you a new switch. Switch failure after 5 hours of riding is simply unacceptable.
