Sounds like the bike "thinks" the side stand is still down. There is a switch on the side stand to tell the ignition if it is up or down. The intent is to prevent a person from riding off with the stand down and crashing. Check first to see if it is sticking. Observe the operation of the switch as you raise and lower the side stand. Often, a shot of lubricant can resolve this issue. If the switch is moving in and out, then disconnect it from the wiring harness and put an ohmmeter across the two leads and check for continuity and no continuity as the side stand switch is down and then up. If the plunger for the switch is moving in and out with the side stand, and you do not get a change of continuity with the side stand up or down, it will need to be replaced.

1998 kawaski jet ski that boggs down on take off

Sounds like this bike sat for a while. When carburetors sit, the jet's inner diameter shrinks slightly from oxidization/micro-corrosion, and the diameter of the needles that go through them grows for the same reason.

Replace the jets and the needles that go through them.

I had this problem with a Suzuki GS850. When I fixed it, I treated the bike as I had been before I fixed it on the test drive, and almost launched myself off the back of the bike when I first opened the throttle. Careful.

You are over torquing the springs. Buy a generic manual from your automotive shop. ZX11 specs are much higher than the GPZ.
