Its more than likely your coil going bad but it all depends on which cylinders.

Well theres no easy way but the tick marks HAVE to be set to top dead center with cylinder 1. Guess wondering since the oil pump sits in the oil pan why you tore the timing chain off? Assume you were over hauling the chain since it had high miles. All I can say if it was at top dead b4 you started cant think anything you could done for it not to go back to top center. Just keep trying walk away from it when you get really ticked off. Had a GM done that on me took 3 days going at it back and forth but i finally got it to line up to #1

Why won't my bike go into gear?


Sounds like your clutch has locked up. Most likely the oil that was in your clutch has gummed up and locked the plates together. Pull the clutch in and try rolling the bike back and forth. If the back wheel spins freely then it may be another issue. If it doesn't move try pushing it forward and back either by sitting on it or by standing astride it. If wheel free's up then you should be able to select gears.

Rear subframe wabbles


It is only supposed to pivot up and down with the shock. The pivot point is worn and needs to be serviced or the bike is too worn out. Might be an easy fix depends how long its been doing this.

Seized clutch


Depends if you have a "wet clutch", if so it may be that the friction plates may be just stuck togeather usually if the bike has been sitting for a while. First try warming up the bike, turn off, put into second gear, then rock the bike back and forth and see if the clutch releases. If not you can try parking on a hill, put in 1st gear,hold clutch in,press starter while sitting in riding position ("jump start"), be carefull

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

Fzr 1000 engine sat then locked up


Hi, Brian ouch!!!!! this is what can happen if you don't perform winterization maintenance before you store your bike for the winter and by the way, rust never sleeps and radiator coolant loves to spend the winter in your cylinders if there is a welcome mat, ok now for some help, remove the spark plugs and squirt "Marvel Mystery Oil" down each cylinder 1 oz. per cylinder should do then with bike sitting straight up let it stay in there for 24 hours then put it in 1st gear and rock the bike back and forth until it breaks free, if it doesn't let it sit for another 24 hours and repeat the process, if it still won't break loose take it to a shop they will have more tricks to employ if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

I replaced plug wires: unfortunately i got mixed up : plug1, plug2, plug3 and plug 4 ; please show me where the wires must go to.


hi you dont say what model kawasaki you have im assuming you have a transverse four like a z1000 generally speaking as you sit on the bike the outer cylinders are 1 and 4 the inner cylinders are 2 and 3 ,now again im assuming you have two coils, each coil has two plug leads
coming out of them coil number one will serve cylinders 1 and 4 it doesnt matter which of these leads goes to either 1or 4 as bikes use a wasted spark system and will spark on the exhaust stroke as well, coil number 2 will serve cylinders 2 and 3 again it wont matter which plug lead goes to either 2or3 ok now for the tough part
you need to find the sparking point for no1 cylinder remove no1 spark plug probably the outer left cylinder as your sat on the bike and turn the engine over by putting the bike in gear (only do this with no plug leads connected as it could start unexpectedly in gear ) and push or bump the bike gently with the clutch out to bring the piston to the top of the bore a small torch would be handy for this to shine down the plug hole you then need to find a timing cover on the outside of the engine
you may need a service manual for this as there are many variations but usally there are two pick up modules one for each coil the timing marks correspond to each coil with cylinder 1 at the top of the bore the timing mark should be near number 1 pick up module now that you know which module number one is follow the wiring back to the coil ,each pick up wiring is a different colour like black and orange wires for one coil and black and green for another when you have found number one coil attach plug leads to it and fit them to cylinders 1 and 4 you then fit the remaining coil with plug leads to 2 and 3 cylinders refit the spark plug take the bike out of gear and go for a start good luck with this

1981 550 suzuki one cyclinder is dead has spark and fuel and bike runs but start extremly hard seems cold blooded


Check compression of cylinders, all should be close the same. Swap spark plugs and check if problem cylinder moved. If bike sits for long periods of time then most likely it will be a plugged carburetor.

The car shakes back and forth and has about one half of the power it used to have, it seems one of the cylinders isnt working


SOUNDS LIKE IT NEEDS A MAJOR TUNE UP, PLUGS,PLUG WIRES ,CAP,ROTOR BUTTON, FUEL FILTER,AND A FULL FUEL SYSTEM CLEANING,BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE MOST OF YOUR PROBLEM IS THE PLUGS & WIRES, IF THAT DOES THE TRICK ,I WOULD REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER,AND PUT SOME REALLY GOOD FUEL SYSTEM CLEANER IN IT TO HELP CLEAN THE FUEL INJECTORS, & SYSTEM, BECAUSE IF PLUGS & WIRES DON'T FIX IT ,IT COULD ALSO BE A BAD,OR CLOGGED FUEL INJECTOR,AND ANOTHER BUT LESS LIKELY CAUSE FOR A MISS ,OR A DEAD CYLINDER IS A BURNT OR BAD VALVE,OR IT COULD HAVE JUMPED TIME ,DUE TO NOT REPLACING THE TIMING BELT ON IT'S SCHEDULED TIME.

Spin cycle shakes the whole house everytime why


check first if any of the legs are not sitting flat on ground,check the roughness of bearings by placing your hand in the drum and rotate slowly back and forth,loose balance weight could also be a cause but id say it sounds like bearings
