Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you checked the main fuse inside the starter relay? To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

My 1992 zzr250 kawasaki it turns over no problem but it just won't fire and I have checked s/plugs, fuel and they seem ok is this comon and how do I fix it?

I posted a similar problem on my Kawa Vulcan. The coils work, there is power, but no spark at the plugs itself. I heard that it might be a "stator pickup" problem, but waiting for an answer as well !

My kawasaki zx12 wont turn on.i've check the batery cables and happened when i installed a new battery

A couple of things that may sound trivial or silly, but check and make sure your kill switch is in the start position.
Check your fuses to make sure they are all still good.
Make sure that when you turn the key you get a neutral light, if not select neutral and try to start it again.
Check you battery is fully charged, a battery that is below charge won't start a bike like it will start a car.
Did you disconnect any other wires if so reconnect them.
Do you have fuel in the tank?

2001 Kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Classic will not crank over

Hi, Fmueller05 before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 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 type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the 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.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 classic will not start, battery 12v good, Fuses good,no instrument lights. Removed battery and started bike with jumper cables from my car and the bike started fine. removed...

under the seat there is a reset button that taked a metal prong thingie (dont know whent it's called) you can use a paper clip - just jump the two terminals and try to start it,, doesnt happen all the time but it does happen.

When i turn my key on nothing happens on the dash no neutral light, bought brand new battery and checked all the fuses in the junction box and the main fuse still nothing working when turn key on

Both cables firmly connected? Good ground? Cables connected properly (+ to start solenoid, - to the frame?) Is there power at the battery? You measured the battery with a Volt/Ohm meter? What about the solenoid? Have power on the battery side?

Couple things for you to check. Currently, the website is not notifying we volunteer question catchers of comments posted to questions ... so, if none of this works, please reformulate your quesiton with the latest information and repost.


Thanks for your question

Ignition is stuck in park on my kawasaki zzr250 bike, ive tried oil and lube, but cant get it to turn back.

I'm going to assume the steering is locked as well.
Two things usually hand Kaw's up like this. 1 - make sure wheel is 'free' - NOT against stop (lock_ 2 - jiggle the key up/dwn left/rt while trying to remove it
In the future use graphite on lock mechanisms. Oil attracts grit and gums up.
Good luck!

ZZR250 won't start. fuel tank full. well charged battery can turn engine over. no firing. One month back engine can be started. No overheating then. What's the problem? Bob.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initial check is to remove the spark plug after giving it a try to start:
  • if the plugs are wet with fuel, then the carbs are OK, if not then it would most likely be a fuel delivery issue to the combustion chamber;
  • connect the sparkplugs back to their wires and lay it against any metal part;
  • crank the engine;
  • note if there would be spark;
  • no spark, then an electrical issue;
  • good spark, then back to fuel issue.
Postback results of above initial tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
