2002 kawasaki ninja 250 motor on ATV need wiring help
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
To my knowledge, there would only be 3 wires needed from the handlebars that affects the engine:
- engine RUN/OFF;
- clutch ENGAGED;
- engine START.
The first 2 would go to the interlock plus the neutral wire and the sidestand wire. The interlock then sends signals that starter motor can turn and that CDI can fire.
As to the ignition coil, 1 wire is IGN B+12 while the other would go to the CDI and should pulsate when cranking or engine running.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi I'm having a problem with my 1999 Kawasaki
Carb synch is a fallacy.
Manufacturers don't produce carb linkages that slip out of synch easily and when reasonable wear does take place it would have the effect of taking the edge off the bottom end performance and maybe cause a lumpy idle.
While it is important to synch carbs at idle, some carb linkages can and should be adjusted so one or two carbs begin to open slightly before the others. This has the effect of softening the initial performance surge making high performance machines more tractable at low speeds and protecting the drive train from shock loadings.
I suggest before dismantling the carbs you check there is a good continuous flow of fuel to supply the carbs. Your description of the symptoms does suggest enough of a supply for no load testing and adjustment but afterwards the supply starts to reduce suggesting a semi-blocked filter or something floating around in the fuel tank.
