Question about 2004 kawasaki ZX-6RR

1 Answer

Hi I have a 2004 kawasaki zx-636 that has no spark. I pulled the coil packs and the plugs to check spark but there was none, not even when I just stuck a screwdriver into the coil pack. I then pulled the wire leads to the coil packs and tested them with a test light, they are hot. So where do i go next.

Do a resistance check on the coils to check for insulation breakdown inside. also, check the resistance on your engine run switch.

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.

I have a 2003 Ninja 636 that has been sitting for 3 years. I just changed the battery and added new gas to the old gas that has been in the tank for the last 3 years. It still wont start. Any trouble...

Sheeesh 3yr old gas is'nt gas any more, drain the tank and fill with 93 octane add injector cleaner. change spark plugs. Be prepared to charge battery. Good luck!

Kawasaki ninja 636 won't start, removed seat and tank to replace battery. Engine turns over, but does not fire. Was started 2 months ago.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On your post "...does not fire..." initial checks would be for:
  • consistent IGN + 12 on the red wire going to all the ignition coils even when cranking;
  • pulsating voltage on the other wire of each ignition coil coming from the ECU when cranking.

Incidentally, if the bike has been sitting for 2 months, you may want to check quality of fuel and/or replace it. Further checks maybe required on the fuel delivery system. Try of a quick fix would be adding / spraying injector cleaner.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

How do I change the spark plug on a 2004 Kawasaki ZX-6RR

hi buddy 1st remove the seat then remove bolts for tank by the steering the the tank will tilt back and you will see on top off the engine 4 coils these pull off easily and you need a spark plug socket and ratchet with extension bar slide down inside and unscrew the plug then pull it out and when you put the new one in when it gets tight ish turn it another 1/4 of a turn it will tell you what to do on the sprak plug box and then reinstall all together thats it buddy

Engine swap 04 zx10r on a 06 zx 636 f

The frame mounting points are completely different. A zx 636 frame wraps around the motor where as a zx10r frame goes directly over the motor. That's how they keep the zx10r nimble enough to feel like a 600cc sport bike. But in this day and age if you have enough time and money you can accomplish anything. Honestly it's just easier to sell your 6 and buy a 1 liter.
