Question about 1996 kawasaki ZXR 400

Open Question

I have a 1996 Kawasaki bayou 400 4x4. I had an oil leak so I removed the clutch cover and the bevel gear and replaced the gaskets. I had to remove the primary and secondary clutch to get to the shift shaft to remove it so that I could remove the bevel gear. I went by the book. and now when I put it into gear I feel it go into gear but it don't go anywhere. forward or reverse.

SOURCE: kawasaki 300 bayou won't rev up.

No guarantees but try this. Pull the slide from the throat of the carb. Now move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix. Two notches may be needed but do one notch at the start.

SOURCE: 1987 kawasaki 185 bayou reverse light

No, the reverse light is only for reverse indication. If the light is coming on while riding in any forward gear there is a loose connection, probably where the reverse sender attaches to the transmission or the sender itself is malfunctioning.

2 004 kawasaki vn2000 my netural light will not come on. and will not start when kickstand is down.

The switch module for neutral light is on rh side. Drain oil (3 drain plugs). Remove muffler pipe and rear brake master cyl. Remove chrome cover that holds dipstick. Remove next cover which will drain the coolant and has the module bolted into it. There are several large copper contacts (1 for each gear) and the neutral contact which is the smaller contact. Remove the spring loaded contactor pin and polish it with some 600 paper both on the outside and the bevel tip that rubs against the module face. Retension the spring behind the contactor pin. You will need 2 new side cover gaskets. Clean gasket surfaces with fresh razor blade. Refill oil & coolant. Probably won't need a new module unless the face is badly grooved.

Do the timing belt cover on a 1996 camry have a seal or gasket that can leak oil, mine seems to be leaking for around that area. If so how to replace the seal/gasket?

The timing cover itself does not seal any oil from leaking. It is just a cover to prevent debris from getting into the timing belt and ruining it.

To find the oil leak you will need to remove the timing cover and inspect the seals behind the cam gear, crank gear, and oil pump drive gear, and the oil pump to block seal. The most common leaks on these are the cam gear.

Where is the bleeder for Vulcan 1500 clutch?

It is under the left engin cover. You have to remove the shifter and the footpeg or floorboard too. Then remove the 4 or 5 allen bolts and the cover will come right off. No oil or anything will leak when this cover is removed. You will see the clutch slave cylinder behind this cover. I found the best way to bleed the clutch is to fill the master and open the slave and let it drip for a while (gravity bleed) Do not let the cylinder at top run low while you are doing this. After a 10 minutes or so, tighten slave then refill cylinder and do the old pump and drain bleed a few times. I found that it works better with the cover installed on the cylinder when pumping to bleed clutch.
