There is a short in the wiring to the brake light. Need to trace these wires, looking for exposed wiring where it could be touching the frame or another wire -- or the short could be in the light fixture itself.

More info, let me know.

Kawasaki zx7 starts but won't stay running

No special ZX7 experience but symptons are fuel starvation, real pain to debug. drain fuel tank into a jug for over 1 min, flow OK if not blocked filter or crud. Connect to carbs and remove drains to all carbs, drain through carbs as before ensure all have decent flow for 1 min, all OK , Oh dear. now you need to strip carbs and check for corroded parts, fuel intake, emulsion tubes etc blow through with "brake clean" sprays. Before you start, connect strobe to check spark does not die before engine cuts, to eliminate ignition. test each of 4 plug leads please. No joy? come back

1996 Kawasaki ZX-7R died suddenly

Hi, Anonymous you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away from the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

Kawasaki Vulcan Meanstreak 1500cc is not reading that it is neutral evennthough in neutral and will not strat unless clutch is held???

having to hold the clutch in and have the bike in neutral before it will start is more than likely a saftey feature from the manufacturer.

I have a 02 electral glide ultra classic that keeps blowing the accessories fuse. as soon as i put a new 15 amp fuse in it blows. turn signals, brake lights and the spped odometer stop working.

In this case, you're going to need a wiring schematic to trouble shoot the problem. You'll have to disconnect the power lead to each device that the fuse provides power to. Then, replace the fuse and start reconnecting the devices one at the time. When you connect a device and the fuse blows, you have found the problem. I do not have schematics for bikes newer than 1999, I'm sorry.

Good Luck

Brake lights do not work when I place my foot on the brake pedal

its either both bulbs are blown which is unlikely for both to blow at once, its most probably going to be the fuse has blown simply replace it

Headlight wont work all other lights good tail,gauge,indicators etc new bulbs.How is the h/light delay controlled.PLEASE HELP READY TO PULL OUT MY HAIR

A couple of ideas off the top of my head:
  1. I believe the headlight has a dedicated fuse. If it fails, all the other lights continue to work.
  2. High/low relay fuse? See
  3. Occasionally, the headlights will appear to have failed if the starter button sticks, since pressing the starter button kills the lights to direct more battery power to the starter. WD-40 is the short term cure for this.
My two cents, hope it helps.
