Question about 1991 kawasaki ZZR 250

1 Answer

Bike starts fine. When I put the clucth in and engage 1st gear not a problem When I release the clutch, the engine dies straight away. I can restart bike ok with the clutch in but as soon as released again it dies. Even on the stand with no resistance and given throttle. I can't start the bike in gear with clutch out - safety switch appears to work then !

I have a 92 fzr 600 when i engage my clutch amd shift into first it dies like the clutch isnt engaged. i checked the clutch cable and it seems to be working fine


With the engine not running can you select 1st gear pull in the clutch lever and push the bike with no difficulty, if you cant, it may be the clutch plates have become stuck together, this can occure from standing for long periods, if you can push the bike it may be the neutrol safety switch, or the side stand safety switch have become faulty, and cutting the bike out as a precaution

Driving down the road a open the throttle to accelerate. the engine revs up but it takes the bike a few seconds to speed up. could it be clutch fluid? clutch is brand new.


Hello
A new clucth will slip a little at first. Its recommended to try to make the clucthes slip.
i just put in a set that instructed me to make the clutches slip.
A brand new set of clutches needs to seat and it will take a few times riding it before it does.

If they continue to slips after a few rides then you should have your master cylinder bled.
If the clutches are not engaging all the way, the clucthes will slip and motor revs but bike dont move.
if the clucthes are not disengaging all the way, the clutches drag, and the bike will edge forward because the clucthes are not disengaing from the motor.

Thats a pretty simple set up, hydraulic just needs to be bled all the way in the same manner you bleed a brake caliper.
once bled there is no adjustment and the clutches should disengage and engage within the first 1/2 inch of pulling in the lever.

Hope that helps, and don't worry about your new clucthes, they will slipp a little but will go away.
i'm sure of it.
Best Regards

I dont have your bike but have had this problem on a few bikes, for me it was the reservoir or master cylinder. pump your clutch for about 30 seconds before you shift into first if that works rebuild your reservoir failing that replace your master cylinder. I would wait for someone more knowledgeable to answer before you replace your master cylinder though.

'06 vtx 1300 c : engine dies when put into gear


You have one of two things going on. (1) You need to check the kick stand switch, your bike thinks the kick stand is still down. It may have been loosened out of adjustment by vibration. If the kick stand switch is out of whack, it will restart as long as the clutch in pulled in. But as soon as you try to let out the clutch it will kill the engine, if it is in gear. (2) Next problem could be, you need to loosen up the clutch cable a little bit, The clutch control on the handle bar has a screw type of adjuster (clutch cable passes through it ), try loosening it till it's easy for you to move the bike without the engine shutting off. Hope it helps and comment if you need more clarification.

Engine cranks but won't catch,, then floods,, gears are sticky as well My bkie died on the way home from a long trip,, just stopped,, I got it started for about two minutes then it died again, and will not...


To begin with, do not try to start the engine with the transmission in gear. Shift the transmission to neutral. If the bike tries to move forward when you try to start the bike with the transmission in gear and the clutch lever pulled in, the clutch cable needs adjusting as the clutch is dragging and not completely disengaging.

If the engine is flooding, it sounds like you have trash in the carburator. Take your air filter off and try to start the engine. From a distance, look into the carburator and see how much fuel is going into the carburator. There should be a small spray of fuel if you turn the throttle grip. Otherwise there should be very little fuel going into the carb. If you see fuel pouring into the carb, you've got trash in your carburator. Unless you are very familiar with carburators, this is a job best left to a certified mechanic. You may have fouled your spark plugs as well. Either clean your plugs or buy a new set and install them. Sportsters are tough on spark plugs. Once they get fouled, they simply will not clear up on their own.

More than likely your clutch is fine, not burnt out. It simply needs to be adjusted, thats all.

The leak could be coming from most anywhere. Clean the bottom of the engine, take a short ride and then have a look. If you can't figure it out that way, put something under the kick stand to stand the bike as near to straight up as you can without danger of it falling over. Put a clean piece of newspaper under the bike and let it sit overnight. Look for the oil drip on the paper and then look straight up.

Starting and once started won't run


The problem seem to involve a number of circuits, I would suspect the Key switch as it supplies power to all affected systems. The dieing on release of the clutch is usually the kickstand safety switch. If the kick stand is not up, and the bike in gear, then when the clutch switch detects release is kills the engine so you don't kill your self.
Check or replace these switches.

Hope this is of some help.

Engine dying


Check your kick stand sensor if it's unplugged then there is your problem. If it's still plugged in then the sensor might be gone. The sensor shuts the bike down if you try to take off when the kick stand is down. you can bypass the sensor by jumping the two wires before the sensor with a piece of wire connecting the two leads together. doing so will allow the bike to be put into gear with the kick stand down so always check it so you won't have an accident.
