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...

1986 Kawasaki Ninja 1000R how to replace the starter clutch


Hi, Gary, unfortunately, you do not have to remove the engine the starter clutch is a separate mechanical gear driven component that is activated by the starter motor, it engages the clutch pack gear or the flywheel gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one "ONE DIRECTION" only and once the engine starts allows the gear to free spin with engine rotation. If the starter gear free spins in "BOTH DIRECTIONS" then the drive gear has failed, it might be serviceable on some models but usually needs to be replaced.

1999 Kawasaki ZX-9R Ninja will not turn over


Hi, Lamond before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.

My bike starts with kick stand down-safety feature malfunctioning / i unplug the kickstand switch connected the end of the plug with a wire so that i have closed circuit and the problem still exists even...


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.
