I have a 1989 750 kawasaki I get no power thur the key the batter has power but I have not lights or power thru the key

You either have a blown main fuse usually located by the starter solenoid. Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid and locate the main fuse . See if it is blown and replace it if necessary. The other possibility is that the electrical contacts in the base of the ignition switch are dirty and no longer making a connection when the key is turned on. Take the contact base off of the bottom of the switch, clean the contacts, and put it back together noting where all the little pieces go and being careful not to lose any. If the switch is not repairable replace it with a new one.

Gpx 250 hard to start when warm

It really does sound like overfuelling. If you leave the bike for a while does it start? If the needle and seat is worn, it will still not work properly and the only solution is to remove the carbs and replace the needle and seats, not a difficult job but it is a bit fiddly. You might as well look at the condition of the fuel lines wlist you are there just to make sure that they are not leaking.

Need to know where the starter relay is located on my 1989 kawasaki 250 gpx

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.  It would end up in 1 of 2 terminals of the starter relay which would be beneath a rubber cap.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Starting my bike


On most bikes including Kawasakis, the starter button would be on the right side of the handle bar on the throttle grip assembly. It would be right below the headlight switch. Above the headlight switch would be a switch that must be set to RUN, this is the engine kill switch.

If the above still fails to crank/start the bike, then the following would have to be checked:
  • battery and battery cables;
  • starting relay;
  • starter motor.
If the engine will crank but will not engage/run, then you need to check for:
  • spark at the plugs;
  • fuel as supplied by the carbs.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
