Gpz1000rx number 1 cylinder fouling spark plug, causing miss fire and light blue smoke

Your cylinder is worn. Its allowing oil past the ring. The oil is fouling the plug and the burning oil is causing the blue smoke. After 22 years the Kawi needs a freshened up top end.

Stevie-J my gpz 500s as a fuel starvation problem it will run forever on tickover but under load cuts out at after about 1 mile as the carb bowl is empty

check to make sure you have good fuel flow coming fro the lines going to the carb. if it flows well, then you need a float adjustment. there should be a metal tab just under the needle that cuts your fuel off when the carb is full. depending on what style float is in there, it may be just a metal piece or it may be attatched to the float assembly. either way, take that tab under the needle, and ben it DOWN, towards the bottom of the carb. not much though, maybe only a mm. or two is all it would take. move it too much, and your carb will overflow. this will let a bit more fuel in before that needle seals the fuel inlet on the carb, and should fix your problem. when the carb is off, it may also be a good idea to remove the float and needle and use carburetor cleaner or compressed air to blow through the fuel inlet, just to be sure there are no obstructions.

I cant get the bike to fire when i try to crank it it just floods out

Not really shure it is the timing. I would make shure the fuel is on. check the spark plugs. and it just might be a carburetor issue. Hope that helps.

Kawazaki gpz carbs will fire when you put petrol directlt in them

Check the routing of the wires under the tank. Also check the wire connections. It sounds like the installation of the tank is pulling on the wires causing a momentary disconnection of a power wire.
Alternate to that, are the spark plug wires grounding against the tank?

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Engine will not start,carbs cleaned, but will not fire, no petrol

Check the carb diaphrams for any tears/pinholes? (They are on the top of the carbs) Have you reconnected the breather from the tank? Is fuel getting past fuel tap? Sometimes the vent in the fuel cap can get blocked with crud and create a vacuum which stops fuel flowing.

Electrical problems

Ok good luck finding a wiring diagram to do this! Also this i a very bad idea if you manage to bypass the fuse box as your bike will then become a fire risk if you have some sort of short while riding your low amp wires will melt which will then melt the higher amp wires and add a bit of heat and oxygen and you have yourself one burning GPZ 1000
