SOURCE: is my dented front frame repairable?

No way to tell for sure without someone who straightens frames taking a look at it. I've dealt with Ron at framestraightsystems.com, he will give you an honest opinion.

No, parts are not cheap. Anywhere.

SOURCE: can i fix dented frame? where to find cheap parts?

If the dent is only a dent, yes you can fix it with body putty and paint. If the "dent" is really a bend that has put the frame out of alignment then, no you can't fix it > not properly anyway. It may be possible for a frame shop to straighten but you can probably get a good used frame for the same money.

Google " motorcycle salvage kawasaki ". You can probably find a frame there.

SOURCE: Does anyone have a Vaccum hose diagram for a 1995 Kawasaki ZX6R?

One of these pipes is for overflow gas.You just route it downwards.For the other one I need more info.Some bikes have a second overflow tube tha collects the water near the gas cap on the gas tank and goes the same way like the other one.Blow in them from the loose end having them attached to the tank and see what happens.

SOURCE: Kawasaki GT750 Fuel dumping

Sounds like the float valve is stuck in the carby and allowing fuel to keep flowing.

Give the carby bowl a light tap with some wood to free up the float valve. You may have to pull the carby off and have a look if that doesn't help. Fuel cannot bypass the float valve in normal operation.

SOURCE: Air box and crank case fuel flooding problem

Well there only one way the fuel can get into the crankcase and that's from the fuel tank. The petcock must be draining and the float needles are not stopping the fuel flow. Do you have a prime position on the petcock? If so do not run the bike in the position. Try topping the tank off with gas and letting it sit for a while and see is the gas has gone down and then check the crankcase and see if there's fuel in it again. i still say its got to be your petcock.

I have Kawasaki zxr 636 it will not start when cold it trys to fire but won't 20 mins with jump lead it starts and is ok leave it a month it will not go


Hi, Wayne you may want to consider a motorcycle battery tender and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to the carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check 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 if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty MAP, CKP, O2, TPS, sensors.
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box.
17. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
18. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
19. Check for engine trouble codes.

What is button on gas tank for?


It's the fuel petcock switch. Here are some pictures of it: https://www.google.ca/search?q=2004+kawasaki+vulcan+1500+fuel+petcock

Fuel petcock valves are common on motorcycles which don't have a dedicated fuel level gauge. They are use to turn the fuel tank "on" or "off", and they also have a "reserve" position which taps into a section of the fuel tank which contains reserve fuel to allow you to make it back to a gas station should you run out of fuel in the "on" position.

I need to replace the o ring (petcock) on my 2004 honda shadow aero and need to know if i need to remove tank or maybe get special tool to remove petcock


Drain the tank. You should be able to remove the petcock by simply turning the nut holding it on or turning the whole petcock assembly. It may be stuck in place by the o-ring/fuel filter inserted into the tank. Be sure the filter is in place when you put the petcock back on or you will have problems with leaking gas out the carburetor overflows (from tank rust getting into the carburetors). Chances are the leaking gas is not form the tank sealing o-ring, but from the vacuum diaphragm assembly attached to the back of the petcock. Part # 5 on the microfiche.

Seems to be a fuel problem, fuel not getting thru to cylinders but runs on easy-start (did this to eliminate poss. electrics problem) fuel tank full and switched on !!!


Don't use too much of the starter fluid. This stuff is bad on an engine as it can crack cylinder heads and pistons. Check the fuel petcock on your fuel tank. In 1996, Harley went to a vacuum controlled fuel petcock and they do give troubles. To check it, pul the fuel line off at either the petcock or the carburetor fuel inlet. Turn the switch on and spin the engine. You should see a good stream of fuel come out of the hose or the petcock. If not, check to make sure the vacuum line is hooked up to the backside of the petcock. If it is, you may have a hole in the diaphragm in the petcock. You must loosen the petcock and allow the fuel to drain out of the tank. Catch it with a large funnel and an empty fuel can. Take the petcock out of the tank and take the plate off the backside of the petcock. There's a needle and diaphragm under the plate. Notice how it comes out so you can put it all back together. Hold the diaphragm up to the light and gently stretch it while looking for a hole. You can get a replacement diahpragm from your local dealer. I'd much prefer to simply replace the petcock with a high quality manually operated petcock and plug the vacuum line. Of course, then you'll have to turn your gas on and off manually, old school style.

Good Luck

Hi, Pez42 for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

96 Ninja zx6r Fuel Tank breather hose leaking gas


It sounds like that hose which runs fron the cap area (inside) the fuel tank to the back bottom is broke, if you take it to a Kawasaki dealer and have your dealer call Kawasaki there is a good chance it will get covered as long as the tank is damaged. Those hoses (metal) that run inside the fuel tak sometimes crack, there is really not way of fixing them unless you cut the tank open and then you would need to reweld it.
