Question about kawasaki ZX-10R Motorcycles

2 Answers

I have a 1988 kawasaki ninja zx-10 and if i lean it over onto the kickstand, it floods out when clutch is engaged. if i put it on center stand(standing straight up) it runs completely fine. itll run 30 seconds or 30 minutes after standing up and running. floods out if i lean it over on kickstand for 5 seconds. do i have a float sticking or something? i have i have completely rebuilt the carbs 4 or 5 times changing jets and needles (i though it mightve been bc im in very high altitude, montana, around 4800 ft above sealevel) but the problem doesnt change.

Chances are the problem is the side stand kill switch. Check the operation of the switch with a multimeter. Is the switch mounted tightly or is it loose? Check for any abraded wires or loose / dirty connections.

Its all in the floater setting inside the carburator if you think that you have no more dirts or anything that would make your floater stuck up. replace the shutter valve or the needle thats closing and opening the fuel intakes... take out the carb from the bike put onfuel hose while moving the floater up and down observe if evrythings working/functioning properly... i guess that the only solution...

I 94 Kawasaki ninja ZX 900 B has a Suzuki motor in it with numbers 3713B3048 Motor dies when you put it into gear to take off


I'd deffinatly say that's the kickstand sensor if it's faulty the bike starts fine and revs but as soon as you go to drive it dies, the bike thinks the kickstand is still down look around the kickstand for wires when you find them disconnect em and try that

Hi, Nunjazx12 the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.
