Question about 2001 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja

1 Answer

2001 Kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja will not start

I have a 01 ninja zx6r. The bike was running just fine till someone in my area messed with it one night. after riding it for about 5 mins the next day it died, and will just turn over and over with our fire. Sometimes it will sputter like its trying but that is it. I have replaced the gas and ran seafoam thru it. tested the fuel pump, replaced the spark plugs, replaced the fuel line, replaced the fuel filter. At the current moment, I am completely lost on what to do. Any help you can offer would be great. thank you. @

SOURCE: stalling when starting

if after the two mins ur putting the choke back in and the bike dies, it could be that your needing to adjust the idle speed.
it might just be set on the lower limit so that when ur bike isnt fully warmed up it struggles.

Hi there!

make sure your carburetors are clean. I guess you've done that already. I had this problem once and i drained the carburetor fuel reservoir and found out that it had water mixed in it. Pull on the chock and ram the throttle several times to get rid of any water stuck on the jets. Also, clean the plugs, and let the chamber dry for a while like 30 minutes... replace the spark plugs.

let me know if this helps

SOURCE: Bike dies if rpm rise above 4 or 5


That clicking noise comes from the start-relay, that tells your battery is out of power or almost out of power, when the battery isent giving enough of power the start-relay clicks. Recharge the battery,
Now for that other thing, that your bike dies around 4-5 rpm, that can be caused by many things but i think that you will find the solution in the carbs. You told us that the bike has been standing outside for 3 years, that tells me that you carbs is in need of cleaning. Inside the carbs is a lot of smal parts that opens and closes when you hit the gas, after so long time outside some part dosent work as they should, therefore when you hit the 4-5rpm the bike dosent get the right mix of fuel and air since the carbs harsh and the bike dies.
Take the bike to a repaire shop and let them clean and calibrate the carbs and your problem will be solved.

Good luck

Sounds like what you realy need to do is remove the carb jets and give them a good clean , this if I am right is the twin V 8 valve engine with twin Klhein carbs , make sure also your air filter is not dirty and check tank fuel filter ,, other than that you may be intrested in the manuel obtainable from this site
hope this helps good luck .. and Live long and prosper lol .. Regards Vortash

Theres fuel starvation, the carbs are not getting required fuel in other words the float chambers doesnt get the correct amount of fuel .
Check the fuel flow from the petcock to the carburators.
Check the float pin and adjust accordingly to get the right level inthe float chamber of each carburator.
Hope this helps!
