Question about 1998 kawasaki ZZR 400

Open Question

I have what I think is a 98 kaki zzr400. I need tonged the carburetor changed and the e cdi ignition also. Any idea where I can purchase these parts online? Or the part numbers? Also, the part that I'm not sure about is whether it's a 97 or a 98 model. I personally think it's a 98, but is there any way to find out? The bike has been sitting for at least 3 years and I want to get it up to running condition. The problem was that when I'd try to start it, I could hear the engine turn but it wouldn't start. Hence, I assume it's coz the carburetor keeps flooding. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Adrian.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, would suggest:

  • a thorough cleanup job on the carbs;
  • inspect, clean the rubber couplings from carbs to intake manifold;
  • inspect tighten coupling clamps;
  • ensure no vacuum leak when re-assembling;
  • inspect, check, ensure air intake box seating to the carbs. Very important, there should be no air leak. All air must pass through the cleaner/filter;
  • check/clean tank, including fuel valve control and built-in fuel filter;
  • use PRIM instead of ON on the fuel valve control.
And the "carborator sleeves" will only slide up when there is sufficient vacuum (engine running) and the throttle is turned.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Hi. I had the same issues as what your saying. What we found was that the leads are a screw in into the spark plug cap. Unscrew the leads to the cap, trim the ends off by a mm or 2 and re-screw back into cap that goes onto spark plug. There renown for pulling out and giving weak or no spark.

Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!

Hi I have 2001 Fazer 600 and it won't start, put in a new fuel pump, still won't start


Hi, Higgins_keit and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to the carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check 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 if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty MAP, CKP, O2, TPS, sensors.
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box.
17. A stuck bent or burnt valve.

Hello, I have a 1997 Honda cbr900rr I have a 1998-99 cdi box in garage anyone know if it will work? Spent hrs online researching and nothing convincing


Hi, Trevor your 97 CDI and the 98-99 CDI are 2 different part numbers that being said they appear to be plug and play pretty sure you won't hurt anything, however, some systems may not function properly for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

I have a sportx 50 2008 and have fitted a Leo Vince ZxR exhaust. when fitted it ran for an hour then just cut out completly. I have taken it to a garage and they reccomened a performance CDI unit instead...


The new pipe changes the air flow in the engine, electronic ignition usually compensates for this automatically, but a carburetor won't. If the guy is trying to sell you a cdi, you have electronic ignition, I would take the pipe off and put the old one back on and get it running again, then see if it was the pipe. could have been coincidence. A slip on is just that, a slip on, but,,, some pipes do come with a cdi and cams for that matter even with electronic ignition. Hope this helps.

No ignition changed cdi unit. still no ignition. any ideas? wayne


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

As in most bikes, the CDI is dependent on the other parts of the ignition system. Check the connection / status of the other parts:
  • terminal of the ignition coil - should have a pulsating high AC voltage from the CDI. Tested alone, the ignition coil should have 0.1 ~ 0.3 ohms from terminal to ground and 3 ~ 5 kilo ohms high voltage to ground;
  • pulser coil - should have very low pulsating AC voltage fed to the CDI. Depending on the brand would be 50 ~ 500 ohms;
  • IGN + 12 - supplied to the CDI through the Engine Stop Switch;
  • ground - ground.

Postback results of checks.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

My honda motorcycle wont start


Hi,

Depending on the model/specs, it could be anything:
  • ignition - CDI, dirty sparkplugs, timing, high tension wire;
  • fuel - clogged jets in carburetor; dirt carb(s), filter, petcock, restricted fuel flow;
  • electrical - engine off, side stand switch, neutral switch, ignition switch.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back the model, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
