Magnets broke on flywheel

it needs to be replaced you cannot fix that.. you may even be able to find a used one at a local junk yard seeing how they may be a little expensive.. let me know how you make out.. and also make sure you clean it well

I have a 1986 zx 600 ninja and its hard to start

Your problem is that your valves are not properly adjusted; had the same problem on my 1985 Ninja 600 - the colder the ambient temperature got the harder it was to start. After a valve adjustment it fired right up even in freezing temperatures very reliably.

I am building a gpz 500 s street rat form a scraper and have just noticed that the left hand side filter for the carb warmer pipe work has been snapped off.can i cap them off or will the carbs ice up

capped off the system on my gpz1100e with no wet or winter problems...just as likely to get carb icing on my 900r which has an intact system with new filters...so I wouldn't worry.new filters are cheap enough though if you want to keep the system...

My kawasaki gpz 600r cuts out when i try to move

It sounds like the kick stand switch is not working or working real good. Did you mess with the switch? Or did you buy it like that? Somebody messed with and did it wrong. When the kick stand is down, the bike goes in gear it shuts off, That is how it is supposed to work. Mine was wired up and you would not believe how many times I took off with the stand down and almost killed myself. I got a new bike and left the switch alone. I know they make special switches for the wires to be cut and relocated, I don't know if you can find one on ebay or not, but I would get under there and check to see if any wires are hanging down. Hope this helps.
