You need to take the #1 plug out and make sure the piston is at top dead center. Then make sure that the alignment mark on the timing rotor is pointing at the mark on the engine casing. You will want the cams positioned so that the heels of the lobes are down toward the cam followers. The lobes themselves will kind of point up and away from the cylinder head. Also there should be marks on the cams they need to be level with the top of the cylinder head. You will measure 4 valves on 1 of the cylinders and 2 valves each on 2 others. Then rotate 1 full turn and measure the other four. In any case make sure the heel is down towards the follower and the crankshaft timing mark on the timing rotor is lined up with the mark on the engine case..

Hi, ive got a 1999 g2 kawasaki zx6r been sat for 6 months+. ive changed plugs,battery, petral and pilet jets becoz to blocked, so put like for like back in. it only starts of bump and backfires realy bad...


Have a professional carb service and valves adjustment done.
Just replacing the idle jets will not clean the entire idle circuit. Mixture screws need to be removed, circuit needs to be cleaned out, re-installed,and properly adjusted for idle mixture.
If backfire continues valves need adjusting. Best to do both at same time to save on labor.

2001 Kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja hard to start


Hi, Mrjoe3100 and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. 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.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
10. Choke valve inoperative.
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.

I have a ticking noise coming from the engine of my 03 kawasaki zx6r 636 and its very loud what can i do to fix this


Sounds like it's time for a valve adjustment.
clearances are:
exhaust .22 - .31
intake .11 - .19
Checking clearance should be very simple but adjusting requires cam and lifter removal and different size shims underneath.

Good luck, i hope this helps.
