SOURCE: My Kawasaki Trimmer is running bad. It will run

Check the throttle cable. You probably need to tighten it up. You will find it on the left hand side of the engine that is mounted it the top of the trimmer, thats where it normally is, but with the japanese you wouldn't know!! Have a look for it, won't be hard to find anyway. Also check the finger throttle. probably slack too.

Once you found the throttle cable at the top, find a optimum idling value and then tighten the cord at that point. (there should be an adjustable screw there.)

Hope it help's.

I fear you will need to strip and physically clean out the whole fuel system, especially the carburettor. I have found that thinners works about the best for this. Make sure to blow out all the ports and orifices and check all the jets carefully. Fuel left standing for such a long period turns to gum and clogs up everything. check the fuel tank as well as that may have a layer of rust built up on the inner surfaces.

SOURCE: I have a John Deere GX345 with a Kawasaki liquid

This engine or notorious for valve cover leaks, faulty pumps not to mention faulty intake gaskets allowing water/oil mixture. It is very important when intake gaskets to torque the intake in proper sequence about 3nM each time to 8nM final torque. If you are sure the engine has not ran hot drain oil and water, then replace the intake gaskets. The kawasaki service manual is widely available online. Follow the torque sequence or surfer warped parts.

SOURCE: changed pull cord and replaced fuel line - it will start but does not stay running

Main fuel metering jet is clogged in carb and it needs to be cleaned out. When the primed fuel is exhausted the unit will stop because it is not being fed gas.

The gas tank is full and thegas is not going to filter

Some older bikes (don't know what year yours is) have an engine vacuum line that allows fuel to run once the engine starts. (Starts with the fuel that was already sitting in the carb's) If you put a vacuum hand pump and start to pull vacuum, the fuel will flow...
Otherwise, something may be plugged.

1980 Kawasaki KX 250, starts and runs hard.

Bored maybe, but i doubt stroked. They usually bored them because they blew up the motor, as it doesn't make that big of a difference in power.
Did you check ALL of the passageways in the carburator to make sure they are clear? Also, see that you plug has a fat blue spark, light yellow is a little weak, and may be due to corrosion around the flywheel.
Also the reed pedals can stick and hinder performance, and last, make sure the air filter is cleaned and re-oiled with a good filter oil.

Describe your trouble shooting 91 gmc truck Problem Truck will start it won't idle you have to pump gas pedal to keep it running but it is fluttering the whole time. unhooked vac line to map sensor it will...

test fuel pressure by renting a fuel pressure test kit from schucks or auto zone then turn key on then off if it hits 50 psi it's ok if it drops below 20 psi in one minuter then fuel pump is bad. if it has throttle body injection then replace the injector or pull it apart to see if it is plugged.check oil pressuer switch behind the distributor to see if it is bad it will cause it not to run if defective.

Kawasaki gpz 1000 rx 1987 model

Running well at high revs would indicate that all the fuel and air it needs are getting to the engine and you also have a good spark. Probably no problem with air and fuel filter ( if fitted) or sparkplugs.

Running hot, and bad idling are signs of a lean air fuel mixture. The engine is probably not getting enough fuel at low revs.

This could be caused by an air leak between the carburettors and the engine. Check that the vacuum line to the fuel tap is properly secured at both ends. It is behind the fuel line at the tap.

Get a a short length of hollow plastic tube and use it like a stethascope - put one end to your ear and move the other end around your carburettor mounts with your engine revs as low as you can get, and listen for any sucking noises that would indicate a leak. Look for cracks in the rubber inlets.

The other possibility is that there is an internal blockage in the idling jets or idling fuel circuit. This is where dirt tends to lodge because the jet dimensions and passageways are very fine - The high speed jets are much bigger and dirt often just passes straight through.

Try a little bit of choke while the engine is warm to see if you get a stronger low speed response. If so that would point to an internal blockage.
