Question about kawasaki Ninja 250R Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 2009 Ninja 250r. The bike will not start with the electric starter. It will start if you push start it. I replaced the starter and it's still not working. Normally when you turn the key and flip the engine cut off it makes a noise (dont know if its the computer or what). It's not making this noise now.

My first impression was that the battery hasn't got enough power to run the starter ans supply the computer with the 9 volts necessary to create ignition. When you push start it the battery is supplying enough voltage for the engine to start.

In short you need to service and charge the battery or a new battery.

    Had the battery tested and its perfect. I used a volt meter and found out that the starter solenoid is not getting any power.

Motorcycle will push start but not ignition switch start

Does it turn over when trying to start? If no then it could be the starter, switch, or battery. Sounds like the starter, especially if you tried another switch.

If It was my bike I would first replace the side stand switch and the clutch lever switch. I would do one at a time they work together to complete the starter system they tell the bike thats it's ok to start. ck the wires going to the switches and connectors for a rubbed spot or burnt spot on the wire.

2006 Kawasaki Ninja 250 will not start

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your post "engine will not turn start", are you referring to the starter motor not turning or is it cranking but will not run?
  • if no crank, check the starter relay;
  • will not run, verify that there is spark at the end of the plugs;
  • will not tun, verify that there is fuel in the bowl of the carb (drain again);
  • if it has a fuel valve, set to PRI.
Incidentally, any clicking sound when you press START? Pls postback updates.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
