Question about 2006 kawasaki ZX-6R

1 Answer

My bike suddenly died when I was riding and now the engine will not even turn over. Not sure how to go about diagnosing this problem. My first thought was that I might have over-revved the engine or that possibly the engine oil was too low (I hadn't checked it since I bought it from a dealership 4 months prior). What should my first step be?

    I heard that if the starter gear will not pritrude out of the starter that the starter will not function at all and the relay will just click and not do anything. Is that true?

  • ARNE ERIKSSON Oct 12, 2010

    IF THE STARER DOSENT TURN AT ALL , ITS GENERALY AN ELECTRIC FAULT - LIKE BAD GROUNDWIRE-BATTERY AND SO.BUT DID YOU TEST WHIT JUMPER CABLES ON THE BATTERY ,

  • Josiah Oct 12, 2010

    I originally thought it was the battery, but I charged it on a trickle charger until it was fully charged and tested it with a multimeter. it was just under 14 volts. I put it into the bike and pressed the starter button and I heard one solid click from under the seat (I've been told that's my starter relay) and that's it. I didn't hear the starter work or any other noise except that one click. I let the button out and tried again and it was exactly the same.

  • ARNE ERIKSSON Oct 12, 2010

    HAVE YOU CHECKED SOO THE ENGINE MOVES FREELY ( CAN BE TURNED BY HAND)

  • Josiah Oct 12, 2010

    No, how do you do that?

  • ARNE ERIKSSON Oct 12, 2010

    REMOVE SPARKPLUGS. PUT AN GEAR IN , TURN THE REAR WHEEL . THE ENGINE SHOULD TURN EASLY

  • Josiah Oct 12, 2010

    So after I remove the spark plugs, I'll be able to push the bike while its in gear? I don't think I've ever been able to do that, it's always had to be in neutral to move it.

  • ARNE ERIKSSON Oct 12, 2010

    BUT YOU DONT ANY COMPRESSION WHILE THE PLUGS ARE OUT , SO IT SHOULD BE NO PROBLEM IF THE ENGINE IS HOLE AND NOT CRACKED

  • Josiah Oct 12, 2010

    Ok, The plugs are under the gas tank, so I will have to remove that completely and disconnect the hoses from it right?

  • ARNE ERIKSSON Oct 12, 2010

    YES

  • Josiah Oct 12, 2010

    Ok, I'll give it a try this weekend. Thanks for your help!!

  • ARNE ERIKSSON Oct 12, 2010

    HOPE THAT THE ENGINE TURNS FREELY .

Bike will sit and idle for over hour but if u ride it after ten 15 min it will lock up back tire and die then hard to kick after cooling down will fire back up


1. idle speed is a "no-load" situation.
2. Riding is a "load" situation. - This is when the problem occurs!

This could be something simple or very complicated to diagnose ... its time for a top notch professional... not just some parts replacer!!!!!

I gave seen a quad that would idle fine, even when warmed up, but try and race it and it would overheat and lock up. The problem was a BENT connecting rod, from forcing the engine to turn over when the engine was FULL of gasoline! (Forcing past a hydraulic lock situation!)

Take the bike out for a 40 mile ride, new battery, rides great, all of a sudden it runs terrible, it dies out and blows fuses.


possible, rectifier problem , or stator problem.

put a multimeter on the battery, should read around 12v engine not running, with engine running should show 13v or more.

Engine cutting out whilst riding along


Hi
If all the electrics go off then :-
A) Check tightness of battery terminals & condition of battery
B) Check for dodgy fuse or dirty connections
C) Check voltage across battery terminals when engine running - should be at least 12.5v rising with increasing revs to 15v max - if not then suspect the regulator/rectifier unit or the wiring from it to battery

I hope this helps, if so please mark as helpful.
Positive comments always appreciated

Bike Died - No Power


i would check if you have a short somewhere.....but first make sure your battery connections are tight....gauges turning off and on while riding is usually a sign of a loose connection meaning you hit a bump or something and it briefly clips out...did the bike actually turn off??? i dunno....but that seems to be a very odd problem....take out the battery, put it on a trickle and let it charge to full cap....then reconnect making sure the terminal connections are secure and see what happens.... if that works, we''ll have to start diagnosing further, but like they always say, check the obvious first !
