Question about kawasaki ZXR 400 Motorcycles
I'll need some more information. Does the bike start at all? Does it idle fine, but then dies if you give it gas? Try to explain in detail what is going on so I can help you with this. There are a few things to check for, start by making sure your gas is good DON'T USE ANY GAS WITH ETHANOL (corn stuff) and that it is new. Another thing is to make sure you are getting spark. A simple way is to take the spark plug out while keeping it in the wire and touching it to the outside of the engine (grounding it), turn the motor over and you should see spark. If not, thats something you will need to correct. You don't have a year or what type of motorcycle so I'm assuming its a late 70's, early 80's KZ400 you are talking about. If so, the points could be the culprit as well (if the spark isn't going). But for the most part, the "needle" settings will only help with it's ability to rev high (main jet) and if it dies at idle, your idle jet is plugged up. Get back to us on the specifics and I can help more.
Here is a great site if it IS a KZ400
