Sometimes the offset of the rims are different from model to model or the spacer width are different lengths from model to model ? Would be worth confirming with a Kawasaki shop if these wheel from 05 - 07 inter change or you could be bashing you head against the shed wall !
Another thought is I assuming it has spacers each side of the hub are they the correct side or does the rim look pretty centered in the swing arm as is ? Could be worth swapping just to see if any different - good luck regards Jamie

1999 kawasaki kvf 300 rear wheels siezed

Is it the wheel bearings or is it the transmission? You will need to raise up the back of the bike to see if the wheel spins. Check the gears are in neutral. you may have to loosen the wheel aligners and push the wheel forward to remove the chain. With the chain off, if the wheel is still stuck, it could be wheel bearings, If it turns freely, I would say your transmission or primary gears have locked up.. Also, check and make sure the rear brake has released..

What model kawasaki does this wheel belong to number j17xmt3.50 dot

That number isn't a wheel, it's a tire size, and could be from a Suzuki GSX-R, probably around 1997. There are several applications that fit this tire, including the Kawasaki ZR-7, ZX9-6 (from around 2000) and the Honda CBX-600, and the Suzuki. The wheel could be from any of those or one of several other bikes in that category. The center hub size and the configuration of the spacers will determine which bike the wheel ultimately fits.

Took chain off to remove wheel and am unable to get chain back on correctly. 2001 Magna oasis 26" 7 digit shifting speed. Unablew to locate manual...can you help?

Put the chain to the inside of the front cog wheel, beside the pedals, first but not onto it, so you have plenty of room for pulling the chain to the rear. Fit the wheel back into place and before tightening it pull down the spring loaded arm, with the small cog wheel beside the back wheel. This takes the tension off the chain and allows you to put it into place on the back wheel. Tighten up the wheel. When it's tightened fit the chain onto the top of the front cog wheel. Lift the back wheel off the ground and turn the pedals forward. The chain will click onto the front cog wheel when you have turned the pedals one complete turn.

If you need to see a picture of how it should look at the back you can see one at

Hi If I put my bike Z 750 2004 on the big stand and put it in gear to let the wheel run there clucking noise that makes the chain jump,it sounds like it is by the gears somewhere. I did change the...

hi you could check the rear sprocket bearing, firmly grip the sprocket try rocking it from side to side, you should not have to much exsess play, have you refited the spacer that fits between the sprocket housing and the wheel? it is easy for this to be omited as it can fall out when sprocket housing is removed from the wheel, this will put undue stress on the bearing inside this hub as the wheel is tightened causing early bearing failure, you will need to remove the wheel again to check this, you may also check the conecting link has not been over riveted causing the link to become tight, check the link manualy compare it to the other links for stiffnes this will also make a clicking noise, is the sprocket a 1 peice construction on the rear, using a scredriver or similar rest it ontop of your swinging arm, rotate the wheel slowly and check for runout in the sprocket,was this noise apparent before you fitted the chain and sprockets, check security of the front sprocket, remove cover and check there has been no contact between chain and cover and or metal strengthening bar, run machine with cover removed to eliminate it from poss cause, hope this helps

My bicycles chain fell down,and I cant put in on again, Do you know some repairer who can repair it,around the Leytonstone or maybe near it? Many Thanks.

There's a trick to putting a chain back on a bike. First fit it onto the back wheel. Then hold it on the top of the front cog wheel (at the pedals) Get someone to lift the back of the bike so the wheel is off the ground. While the wheel is off the ground and you're holding the chain on the top of the front cog wheel turn the pedals forward, with your other hand, as when you're cycling and as it turns the chain will go on.

If you don't have someone to hold the back wheel up off the ground you could hold the chain on the bottom of the front cog wheel and turn the pedal backwards. The chain will still go on.

I have a '99 kawasaki vulcan 800, it has a rubbing sound near the back wheel and chain/sprocket area...could this be that the main bolt on back wheel is too tight.

Tighting the bolt very tight is OK but over doing it can collaspe the spacers. It's more likly that if loosing the bolt corrects the problem it's been put to gether wrong. Look at the bike bandit .com for your bikes rear wheel and see if yours has all the right parts in the right order. Maybe the rear brakes are worn out or something in the brake came loose. The chain and sprocket can make alot of niose. Axel not the same on both sides. chain dry or too loose or too tight. Chain gaurd touching chain or the tire. With the wheel jacked up turn it and work the brake to see if the noise changes. The wheel should turn very easy cheak breakes and chain for probelems wheel bears do fail but mileage needs to be high or wet.
