Hi, Roadstar1761 the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

Hi, Ronald for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Hi, Randy after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Kawasaki Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm.

Hi, John and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.
8. Coolant too old needs to be replaced.
9. Faulty temperature sensor, wiring or connector.

The gearbox needs service work the selectors are worn and I suspect also the gears themselves. Hope you have some money saved! (2 x Yamahas and 1 Royal Enfield)

If plugs are dry then blocked idle jets are the most likely problem...

kawasaki Ninja... | Answered on Sep 22, 2012


A smoked clutch or broken tranny shaft. Most likely the clutch.

Hi, Chris the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

Was it running when it went under? If it was may need major work if engine swallowed water while running. Was it salt water or fresh. If it was not running when it went in you can drain all fluids and flush. Carbs or throttle bodies need to be removed and cleaned spark plugs pulled and checked for water. Once all cylinders are are free of water fog them and reasemble. Add new fluids and gas and try starting. If it is still drippin g water you will need for bike to completely dry. Hair dryer on low will help dry electronic controls. Do not over heat.

This could be many things, wrong gaskets, wrong torque, warped heads, or improper installation.

kawasaki... | Answered on Jun 06, 2019


1. How do you know that there is water in a cylinder?
2. Check for spark. Harbor freight has a cheap spark checking tool.
3. Check for gas. Should be able to pull the fuel line off the injector pump and turn the key on. fuel should come out.

caution******dont do both at the same time
Most likely if it cranks (engine turns over) but doesn't start, one of the two above is not happening, although, it could also be an injector pump.

That vintage of motorcycle I would be checking the plug wires and plug caps for breakdown. Find the darkest place at night, rev your engine and look for arcing from your wires to the engine. It's also time to check for any deterioration of rubber hoses and components. Beautiful bike you have there!!
