Pull the bowl off of the carburetor and clean the float with carb cleaner, pull out spark plug and clean it, spray a small amount of starter fluid in cylinder then replace plug, make sure you have good fuel. It'll start right up

Zx6r running problems

Lest adjusting the idle adjustment screw on the carb, turn the bike on and slowly turn the idle speed up so it doesn't die out on you, if that doesn't work try taking the carb off and cleaning it with carb cleaner

first,your over heating the starter, hope its still good. 2nd, running carb cleaner thru will not clean the whole carb, only lite deposits. You need to pull the jets, and clean then, thats where your problem is. Jets have a very small hole to atomize the gas, and need to be clean.

I have zx6r that wont start changed battery for new but all i get is a clicking sound. any ideas

Follow the large wire from the positive pole on the battery to a small relay with two large wires on it.
That is the starter solenoid, jump from one off the post to the other big post on the solenoid and see if the
starter works. IT WILL SPARK when you jump it use a big wire.
If starter works then 99% sure solenoid is bad.

I have a suzuki qaodrunner160 the motor terns over but wont start dont no howe to set timing up properly

The timing should not need to be adjusted. Most problems with the 160 Suzuki involve the carburetor. Make sure you have spark, pull the spark plug, hook the wire to it and ground the base against the engine. Crank the motor and see if the plug sparks. If it does, your problem is probably the carburetor. Pull the carb down and clean it. Pay special attention to the pilot jet and it's passages. Do not use wire to clean the jets and passages, use a spray carb cleaner and compressed air. Pay special attention to the passage in the float bowl that feeds the starter circuit. It will be a hole at the gasket edge of the float bowl that goes to the bottom of the bowl. There is a small orofice in that passage that is easily blocked, and when blocked, makes the engine real hard to start and keep running until the engine is warm. Good luck

I have recently cleaned out the carbs on my 81 gs550, previously it started and ran but only on 3 cylinders which is why I did the carb work. After I put everything back together, the ignition button does...

Cleaning the carbs should have nothing to do with the switch not working, but look for the 3 yellow cables that are coming out of the starter that should be above the airbox maybe? not sure I had mine all over the place but if they aren't connected it will not start and I know sometimes things get knocked out from removing the carbs.
