Question about 1985 kawasaki Z 650
I am going to buy at 1985 kawasaki ninja from a guy in the neighborhood and he can get it started when he sprays ether on the air breather but as soon as he lets off of the gas it will die and you have to respray to start it up again. He said he cleaned the whole tank and cleaned the carbs on it then blew everything out with an air hose. When he had it hooked up to a different gas source he said it ran fine, but i never saw that side of it. What do you think?
Sounds like the carbs float chamber is low in gas!
Blowing everything out of the carbs is fine , but thn to reset and tune up is another question...involving valve clearance, spark plugs conditions /gap. Setting the air-mixture screw...
Can also be tht it has low compression on the cylinders.
Worth a try to tht other source of gas hook up whilst you there yourself.
Hope this helps!
