Question about 2004 kawasaki KLX 400 SR

1 Answer

I recently bought a 2004 klx 400 sr dual sport. the bike starts up with no problems. After i ride it for a few minute the bike starts to act like it is running out of gas then stalls. it will turn over but not start. after the bike sits for about an hour it will start right back up then proceed to do the same thing. Any insight to what the problem is. the bike has less than 2500 miles but it appears the previous owner allowed it to sit on a trailer outside.

Hello
Your running out of gas.
the fuel filter needs replaced.
your fuel filter is clogged and isn't letting a full flow of gasoline through.
change your fuel filter.

Also check to make sure your gas tank vent isn't clogged.
a clogged gas tank vent with pull a vacuum and try to **** your tank in, but it can't, so your fuel flow stops if it can't breathe.

That should take care of your problem.
have a great weekend

My klx 400 stock carb would stop leaking gas through the over flow line. why?


check and clean the carb, there must be a dirt or an small object blocking the intake line of carb causing to malfunction the fuel floater. the floater acts like a control switch when the fuel reservoiris already full the floater floats causing to shut of the fuel.

Transmission oil is the engine oil ... I suggest you become a member of the Kawasaki Riders Club http://kawasakiownersclub.com/

Need help bike died while riding


everything working perfect. Wednesday night i was riding home from work and got about halfway home bike had a small bog while coming up for a turn onto another street pulled in the clutch and stall. Rolled to a stop and fired the magic button. The motor would turn over and act like it wanted to run (had to give a small amount of throttle) for about 2-3 seconds and then would die. Did this about 5 times and the typical dead or low batter clicking occured. Got the bike home and it has been on the tender for the last 2 days and i just put some time in on the bike and sure enough bike will turn over although kida sputtering and making slight backfire sounds (almost as if timing is off) and will run for about 2-3 seconds and dies. I can do this about 4-5 times and the infamous clicking starts to happen again. Now my bike has never been a cold start bike, i always have to give it a bit of throttle when its cold to keep it running, but once it warms up runs like a champ...or atleast it used to. Its a fairly new battery and has been kept on the tender when the bike is not used for a few days. Now the other thing that bothers me is it seems that oil may be seeping out from where the head and the case meet, but very little. The motor does have a slight coating of oil around the gasket area. I did send the motor to ATK back in late 04 or 05 and had the reliability and upgrade done to it but have only about 500 total miles on it since then, with about 400 of those in the last coulple of months. ,Even with a good bike battery 4-5 tries is about all they have.So forget about the battery and go with basics fuel,compression and spark. Also sounds like you need some mapping help, you should never have to touch the throttle when starting. The will run perfect if they are tuned. Do you know what map is in it? Did ATK also change the ECU to a .atj map?,,,
