Question about kawasaki Full Suspension Mountain Bike Men

Open Question

I have a 1988 Rx 1000 Kawasaki, after filling up the tank the bike started to splutter at low revs, i took her to a bike mech and he found atleast 8 lts of fuel in the sump as well as the exhaust soaked with fuel. he could not give any explanation and the bike was road tested -ok. two days later I have again just filled her up and noticed as I started her this morning - fuel was coming from the bottom seals, I looked in the tank and most of the fuel has gone, obviously the same has happened again, any ideas,regards.

SOURCE: Nearside carb problem on kawasaki zzr1100

Clean your carbs! Your floats might be sticking open a bit. Plus, all Kawasakis have a simple spring-actuated check valve in the fuel valve. This way, you can disconnect the fuel line without having to block the flow. Fuel could be leaking through the check valve. Your problem most liklely identifies dirty gasoline. Clean out your tank, your carbs, and change your fuel filter.

One or both of the floats are stuck open giving the carbs fuel constantly. The extra fuel runs into the intake, fills the cylinder, gets past the piston rings and then fills the gearbox and overflows onto the floor. Pull the carbs and clean them. Some trash, ( such as rust from the tank ), is not letting the float needle to seat. Be sure to sync and balance the carbs after re-installing. Also, turn off the gas at the tank when you are not riding. If you already are doing this, the petcock must not be shutting off properly and needs to be replaced. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

sounds like you blew a set of piston rings. instead of building compression in the cylinder its pressurizing your crank case forceing the oil out the breather into your air box

1987 Kawasaki GPZ 1000 RXv will not rev past 3000 RPM


Hi, Mick and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. 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.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor damaged, contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
14. Fuel filter clogged.
15. Old or contaminated fuel.
16. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
17. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
18. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
19. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
20. Incorrect valve timing.
21. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
22. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
23. Incompatible performance parts.
24. Control module may be in "LIMP" mode
25. Check for engine trouble codes.

Why does my DT125 splutter at hight revs


Sounds like either the bike is starving for gas at higher RPM's, or you're hitting the rev limiter.

Rx 100 reverse start


Make a couple of calls to different Kawasaki dealers in your area. Ask what direction the flywheel is supposed to turn when the engine is running. Chances are the mechanic is seeing a directional arrow on the odd-lot flywheel when the correct flywheel has the arrow going the other direction. Put the bike on the centerstand. Start the engine and put it in first gear. The sprocket should be turning counter clockwise.

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.

the 3M protective film works really well, I have it on the nose of my GTI. It will add some sheen, but I highly reccomend it
