SOURCE: my kawasaki zx9r / 1995 will not start. all

Pull one of your spark plugs. Ground against the frame. turn the engine over. If you have no spark, your problem is electrical.This could mean starter switch, Key switch, low oil sensor, coil, or wiring. If you do, your problem is most likely Fuel related. If you are getting fuel, the only thing left is compression.

hi there have just fixed a mates bike tonite who had a spark on only one plug so what i did was take out all the plugs and with a small file i gently cleaned all the plug tops is an easy enough job so cleaned them all checked for fowling ie black spark heads oily heads or maybe a strong smell of petrol from the plugs these can indicate a problem with the mix fuel oil ratio but when the guy i helped drove off with all the plugs cleaned his bike started fine idled fine and sounded lovely lol is an easy job and try this first before buying new plugs hope this helps

Go here and download a shop manual. It's the first thing I do before I work on any bike. Then I burn a copy of it on a CD and give it to the customer.

Why doesn't my 1997 Kawasaki Classic 1500 model start when cold?

Hi Nigel:
Cold starts require a rich fuel/air mixture. That's what the choke is supposed to do. Is there a way that you can check your choke linkage to make sure it's working? It may have a loose clamp or screw, and even though you think you're choking it, you're not. Another thing, some of these bikes don't like throttle with a cold start. My '08 Yamaha is Choke on, No throttle. Start, Idle until warm. Choke off, Go play!!

2002 kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan hard to start when cold

Hi, Gd2bbahun I would take it back to the dealer and have them fix it properly or ask for a refund and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
10. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
11. Slow fuel jet clogged.
12. Faulty fuel pump.

I have gas in my oil and gas is pouring out the spark plug hole wats the cause of this?? sears crafsman lt 1000 briggs and straton intek,18 hp needle valve in carb seems ok,fuel solenoid working wat...

Gas in the spark plug chamber should mean it is flooded.trying to start it for too much time with the choke on will do this.when starting cold,engage choke.turn engine over till it tries to start.if you can't disengage the choke before it stalls,do not re-engage the choke.just keep turning the engine over,or pull starting,whichever you have,until the unit will.for now,if the sp.plg.hole has fuel in it,blast compressed air to clear it somewhat,re-install sp.plug,never overtightening,just snug,and try starting without the choke.hope this is useful.bart.i am a certified small engine mech.and remember when finished,let unit idle for 2 min. Or so and cool before shutting off.change oil religously every 50hrs.for units over 10hp.,every 25 hours for engines below that.they will last a long time.clean air filter after every two or three uses.never empty fuel when storing,use STA-BIL.

Bought 2004 Kawasaki klx 125 and takes 20-30 kicks to start with choke on and even more when cold. Won't run right until motor warms up n takes a while for it to warm up. Runs fine after it does but it's...

Be certain the battery is in good condition. Install a new spark plug. Clean the carb and air filter. Use the throttle sparingly. The carb has a power valve that gives an extra shot of gas each time the throttle is twisted. Too many twists and the engine floods out. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Bike wont kick start or idle , it will coast

first drain the carby, then set your air mixture screw 2 turns out, from the fully turned in position. The starting proceedure is as follows, when the engine is COLD, turn on fuel, pull on the choke fully, and kick the engine over. DO NOT use any throttle, when the engine is cold, and the choke is on. Remember Choke on, NO throttle.
When warm, no choke, and a little throttle when kicking.

Hello I have a 1996 Suzuki DR-200 and recently put

G'day mate the 1st thing i would go for is float level then compresion if it does have the **** it wont take the fuel in , rules are if it has **** ( induction ) Squeeze (compression) Bang ( spark) and Blow (free exhaust) then it should go, if it was running to lean there is good chance it has a burnt exhaust valve which will greatly drop the compression/induction, also check the valve clearence. hope this helps

Kawasaki ninja er250

You could have a blocked main jet .When starting from cold your engine runs on an idle jet & choke .with very little air .When engine is warm ,there is no need for choke .and your main jet will supply your engines fuel & air ,however if the jet is blocked or there is no air supply like a dirty air cleaner unit .then there is a good chance thats your problem .One quick way of checking this is to try and start without choke and see if your plugs are wet .Then whle plugs are out test the spark by placing them on the engine .and turning the engine over .

Cant find where the spark plugs ara for 1998 ninga 900

sounds like you may have flooded the carbs...try starting with no choke and no throttle. To check for a spark you will have to remove the seat and then the tank to access the spark plugs. Heres a link to the workshop manual for a reference guide, hope it helps, if it does please rate me.
