Question about 1998 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja

Open Question

Hay, I have a zx6r 1998, my throttle response is not the best. for example, I will be out on the road, going say 190km. I will push the throttle but it will take 5 or so seconds to respond. do the carbs need to be cleaned. what do you think is the matter???

Hi there,

Try checking the cable. It maybe the case that the cable inside the protective sleeve snapped. Open the throttle assembly for any mechanical defects and let me know if this solves your problem.

Hope this helps,

SOURCE: i just purchased a 2001 zx6r and i put 1/3 seafoam

Sounds like fuel starvation, remove airbox lid and check the slides in the carbs are not stuck, this sometimes happens when the fuel in the carbs becomes old and forms a stickey bond between the needle and main jet diffuser, you may benefit from a complete overahaul of the carbs again, 2 years is a long time, and i would not find it unusual to do this anualy unless you continue to use the bike, remove the slides and check the diapram condition for holes, remove the mainjets clean, allso the pilot jets and clean them using a wire from a wire brush push through the jet twisting and pusshing, also blow out the holes the jet screws into, remove the float valves and clean them with some wire wool taking care not to damage the rubber tip, and the valve seating should also be cleaned,

When im driving my 2005 ford e 250 van the wrench icon pops up on the dash and my throttle has no response. when i shut it off and restart it is better.

Many different things on the engine and transmission will cause that wrench to light up. No throttle response is because it goes to limp mode. Best to have it scanned for codes. They will have to look at history codes to see. Unless you drive it to a shop, don't turn it off and let them check current codes. The longer you drive it like this, one day the wrench light will not go off. It will be in limp mode from that point on. An example, You have a bad solenoid pack in the transmission, Replace it now, every thing is good( say $800). You keep driving it, it starts taking out mechanical parts, now it is a rebuild. $3000

1998 Kia sportage shows no codes but will start and idle although sounds labored, but will accept no throttle response. You can ease into it and some times it will accelerate

probley your throttle position sensor should have shown a code. try disconecting the pig tail and put it back tap on the side a little if theres any change to your problem then its probley the sensor .if your going to tinker aroud dont mess with the throttle set screw. leave it alone your throttle position sensor gets set from that screw wich the screw itself gets set while on the computer.also check to make sure the cable is okay and hooked to the throttle arm have your assistant press down the peddal as you hold the cable making sure the cable is not snapped if its not make sure the cable pulls the throttle arm back and forth .best i have to offer

Zx6r erratic throttle

Just check on your air ducts. When the bike is staionery it will idle rev and even run well on the dyno, but on the open road the airducts must be in and instadled or mounted correctly

My chevy lumina 3800 series just quits i can be going 60 miles per hr. down the road or i can be stopped and it quit. it will take serveral min. but then it starts back could it be a throttle body sensor...

This sounds like a classic example of a bad ECU,try removing the cover of your ECU check for dirt,corrosion,debris if you see any dirt or grim you'll need to clean it out if you see cracks in the circuitry you might need to replace your ECU!!
