1977 kawasaki kz 650 no power or start.

It sounds like something may have shorted, come loose, or burned out.
Tracing where this is will take time and a multimeter to test all connections.

At lower RPMs it is rough running with slight amount of smoke until warm and there is a loss of power at the bottom end of the gears. Once a certain rpm is reached (no tach) it snaps to life. New plug

What color is the smoke?
Black means running rich.
Gray or white is coolant
Blue is oil.
This shounds to me like a fuel system issue. Injectors might be bad

Installation of carb *** kz sr 650, no clearance front or back! IT came out! how does it go back in?

Not and easy task... make sure you have loosened the 2 bolts that hold the airbox to the battery cage. Remove the breather tube from the case vent and airbox. Make sure the airbox is moved all the way toward the rear of the bike as possible. Put the caries back in the engine but don't align anything, tilt the assembly up at the front and push the carbies onto the rubber manifolds. Then lift the rear up and try to install the rubber boots to the air cleaner. It is a tight fit and sometimes the cam chain adjuster can get in the way - you will get sore fingers replacing the boots.

hello. Thanks for choosing fixya! I would begin by getting this baby scanned. I agree with you that there are some carb. issues, such as gumming which could be cleared up with a couple of bottles of Seafoam, from your local auto parts store. Good luck with it. Regards, Joe

i have a kz650 myself. id say you need to check the valve clearances if theyve never been done. this can cause exactly what you describe with stalling and almost stalling at a light when hot... try to find a kz650 forum and become a member there. there are a few of them
