My 01 kawasaki Ninja zx600e9 is having problems at low speeds (1000-4000rpm) The bike also idles a little rough. No smoke. There does seem to be a small amount of gas that sit in th air filter box. I have also run a system cleaner with a full tank of gas. On the road after about 4000 rpms the bike take off and runs great. Thanks for any help to my problem

    I did clean the low idle jets(pilot jet), floats, main jet, needle valve,. Drained the tank and put fresh gas, changed the spark plugs. Would the pilot screw cause the problem?

    Thank You

The low speed/idle jets in the carb/carbs are in need of proper cleaning and the float seal need to be replace as well, Best bet would be a total carb rebuild.

    It is possible but more like the jets, how did you clean them?

  • seacrmo Aug 29, 2010

    I took them out and sprayed them down with carb and choke cleaner. Then blew them out with compressed air. I did not take the carbs totally apart.

  • seacrmo Aug 29, 2010

    Is there a wayto shrink the float seals. I bought new ones but after I ran the bike, I checked the jets again and the seals were a bit loose. Could this also be the problem
    Thanks

  • seacrmo Aug 29, 2010

    I meant to say the float chamber gaskets became loose not the float seals. The floats themselves did not appear to be holding any liquid in them.
    Thanks

    No way to shrink them that I ever heard of.

1995 ZX6R Ninja- has low compression in #2 and # 3, runs good. Just idles rough. Looking at purchasing this bike w/ these problems. Is this a expensive fix and how hard of a fix?


The fix is going to cost more than the bike is worth. The shop labor will be at least $950. Parts cost is additional and 2 gaskets are $20 each, pistons are $40, rings are $30 per set, cylinder inserts are $72 each. That puts the parts cost around $625. That's around $1558 total. The repair is not for the home mechanic.

I have a Kawasaki Ninja, ZX6r, 1997 F3. The bike starts great and rev's great when standing. At high rev's its as sweet as a nut. The problem seems to be when riding the bike and the revs are below 4,000....


There are adjustments on carbs for low speed air intake (air mixture screw)find out factory settings and reset that mixture.Sounds to me like those adjustments are out of sink.If so the bike will run very bad from idle to about 1/4 throttle then run great from there up to full throttle.this definitly sounds like carb problem.

Why my 2001 kawasaki ninja zx6 die when i start slowing down? then i have to stop and start it again


Just a thought, if you are running ethanol fuel it will lower the bikes idle speed. If you run no ethanol fuel your idle speed will go up. Turn your idle screw to raise the idle . Hopefully , your problem is just that simple.

Kawasaki Ninja 250 running problem


This could be due to timing screw being incorrectly set
Locate gold timing screw on the carbrettta turn it clockwise only slightly till bike idles without choke on, Then when choke it on it should idle a touch higher.

My ninja loses power in the wind


Do you have a "RAM AIR" system on that bike, if so that may be what happens when you ride into a headwind. The bike may be running a little lean and with the extra intake pressure goes too lean.
