1.find the spark plugs,
2.take off the caps (these just usualy pull off but a bit of wiggling may be required).
3.un screw the spark plug, use a socket or wrench/spanner set to help you.
4. find the number on the plastic part of your spark plug (write it down)
5. take the spark plug into a local store for cars or bikes and look for your spark plug number (buy the correct amount of spark plugs)
6. insert new spark plugs with your socket/ wrench/ spanner set (do not tighten to a point where your using all your muscles, just enough that you cant undo it with your hands)
7. put the caps back on (wiggling them while pushing down helps)
8. start it up and away you go

Zx12r power loss

Check that your air filter is fitted properly and then check the spark plugs, you may have got a poor set of plugs-they sometimes fail when under stress ie high revs.

The fi light is flashing constantly when trying to fire up.there is no spark.when tested the fi light gives one long flash and 3 short flashes. zx12r is a uk 2000 model.a1

FI stands for Fuel Injection. The fuel system sensors have detected a problem. It could be anything > a dirty air filter restricting airflow, a plugged injector, an error in fuel mapping, any number of things. Serious problems can trigger the computer to prevent starting until the problem is fixed. You will need to take the bike to a Kawasaki dealer to have them plug in a code reader. The code reader will tell you exactly what the problem is. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I have an oil leak coming from the bottom of the clutch cover which i've had for some time now, nobody seems to know what's causing it not even kawasaki!?! now i've noticed thers's oil coming from the...

Im not to familer with te zx12r, but if you are springing oil leaks it could be down to over pressure in the crankcase/engine. Check all your breather hoses are not obstructed or kinked (normally a large diameter rubber hose that goes from the engine to the airbox.
I am guessing you have already changed the cluch cover gasket? Im afraid they will need changing if you want an oil tight engine.
