Could be the starter solenod. you can find it by following the positive cable from the battery to the solenoid. try bridging the two posts with a pair of needle nose pliers. if it starts you now know your solenoid is bad. if it doesn't, could be your starter. check all wires clean and connected.

2001 Kawasaki ZX-12R will not turn over

Hi, Gsf1200s before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the 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.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have a 2002 kaw zx12r i have changed the stator and rectifier as well as the wiring harness and put a new battery in but th battery will not charge, once the juice runs out the battery it wont turn over,...

Hi Doitall4ya, you may have a faulty alternator rotor or the rectifier has a faulty ground and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki but despair not for a mere $15.00 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

My 2005 kawasaki ninja 636 wont start i was charging the battery and it made a pop noise and now nothing turns on when i turn the key

The Kawasaki has a main fuse, located in the starter relay. Follow the red battery cable from the battery to a small plastic box. This box should have two large wires and a plastic cap, Under this cap is the main fuse. Pull that and see if it is blown and replace it if she is.

i believe if you remove the steering wheel upper and lower covers, there will be a button to push to allow the removal of the for the no start, the battery light is on because of the alternator. Its faulty. the clicking sound could very well be the starter not having enough power reaching to turn it over again unless you put a power pack on it...try a brand new battery, test the alternator and removed the is possible the the key not shutting off the way, is drawing power from the battery not allowing to start that way, causing what they call a "parasitic drain". charge battery, remove key. try that

I have a 89 kawasaki ninja 250 that wont start just click

sorry to say it but the battery cannot handle the load, it may work with small things like lights and low amperage devices. but when you crank the starter motor your pulling far to many amps and the battery cannot put out meaning that the battery has a bad cell or it may just need a battery refill, today we just replace the batteries. it;s safer and a lot easier. plus you get money back for bringing in your old one. but the battery is not able to supply the proper voltage and amps anymore and should be replaced. a very simple test turn the key to run and turn your headlights on. then press the starter button see if the lights do not completely go out. if they do you have a dead battery cell. good luck with it, and thanks for using fixya

My motorcycle wont turn over

how old is the battery? sure sounds like the battery is beyond it useful like and you need a new one.

even if the battery shows a full 12-12.5 volts, when put under a load (like trying to turn a starter and start a bike), it drops too low and the amps are not sufficient.

if the bike starts with a jump start, then replace the battery and all should be fine again.
