SOURCE: rough running
This problem, ironically, might simply be the screen filter on the in tank petcock. The zrx is a gravity fed filter-less fuel system with only the screen to act as a filter. I had the same problem with my black 2001 zrx and did a full tune up before pulling the petcock and cleaning away 9 years of sediment from what appeared to be a very clean tank. I simply purchased a seal kit from Kawasaki before the tear down and waited till the tank was as empty as it would get by riding it. The screen was surprisingly clogged with junk...and once cleaned and reinstalled the bike no longer ran poorly when cold. Im not sure why the bike being warmed up made a difference but it did......now it starts and runs like a champ (colod or hot)!!!

Hi there Dave
I would check Carby setting. Like float levels, Mixture screw setting. These can make the bike run
roughily. Also the spark plugs settings, eg not right gap or heat range or ever reach. One other thing
is vacuum leak eg from a vacuum hose ( this usely makes the bike run rough all the time) Simple way
to test this is use a can of WD 40 & spray over the vacuum hoses & if it stops the problem for a short
time you need to replace the hose or fix the leak. I hope this helps your problem, if not please put up
some more info on what you have done to help you There is many little things that can course is

Sounds like the carb has not been cleaned properly, gas overflow like that could be caused from a worn seat/needle. Did you put after market exhaust on it?

First take that 3 rd carb off, the needle and seat is stuck in the open position, the float may be rubbing on the inside of the float bowl cover, or the float setting is out of adjustment (too rich) either way the fuel to the bowl is not shutting off as it fills, the needle and seat must be forced shut by the gas filling the float chamber raising the float and pushing the needle up into the seat. Sometimes the float has been compromised put it in a cup of gas to ensure it floats and is not a sinker. reassemble and check for the fuel over flow if it still over flows your problem has not been solve this issue must be adressed first for the bike to run right otherwise that one cylinder is going to foul and the bike will never run right.
