Disconnect the gas line from the petcock (should be in ON or RES position). Remove the seat. Remove the bottom bolt of the dash and lift it up, then disconnect the two wiring harnesses and the speedo cable. Remove the bolt under the dash on the frame mount and the bolt at the rear of the tank. Lift the tank, and you can disconnect the one or two (CA models) vent lines. Place the tank so that the weight is not resting on the petcock.

Hi, Anonymous for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

I would suspect that the float is sticking. Checking will require removal of (in order): seat, tank, air filter box/backing plate, and finally, the float bowl at the bottom of the carb. Insure that the float is not flooded, and that the float needle is free of trash.
