yes it will have a regulator , check that first !

1988 kawasaki ZX... | Answered on Apr 29, 2014


Don't know... why?

1988 kawasaki ZX... | Answered on Aug 21, 2013


If the problem is worse when warm then it may be rich.
try new oil, plugs and new air filter first.
also check for a flooding carb or leaking fuel tap, or bad diaphram in the fuel tap
clean the carbs, adjust the valves
if it still has problems then lower the needles 1 notch
keep notes on changes so you can change it back if there is no improvement or its worse

dyno jets may help if the jetting wrong or the exhaust has been altered from standard, but its not a miracle cure and wont help the starting on 3 cylnders problem which may be related

there should be a key latch, if the latch is a little siezed push down on the seat while you turn the key

1988 kawasaki ZX... | Answered on Apr 25, 2010


unfortunately its the engine out as the seal is kept in place by the crankcases and these are lipped to take the seal and you would damage the new ones trying to fit with the engine together.

1988 kawasaki ZX... | Answered on May 27, 2009


I have never known a cable to take up slack and get tighter! You need to find out why? I suspect you have a problem with the clutch plates failing and de-laminating. I would take the case off and remove them all to check.

Hi, Max and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Speak to your dealer

kawasaki ZX 10... | Answered on Jul 29, 2011


try just replacing fuses, if it sat that long could be corrosion or rust

kawasaki ZX 10... | Answered on Jul 10, 2011


dont know what bike you have, but there is no wires at tail light that will affect charging.
Most bikes have a stator that produces AC voltage powered by magnet in the flywheel, this then goes into a rectifier\regulator, which converts to DC and regulates voltage and then to the battery
The regulator will have 1 or 2 plugs and 5 wires 1 red 1black and 3 yellow or white

The plugs you describe sound like indicator or earth wires , a power wire wont have a male bullet

1. Oil level is checked with the engine off and the bike on its center stand so that the oil level is even across the engine.

2. Without knowing the model and year of your bike, it's not possible to suggest the oil capacity for your engine. Some engines have the maximum oil capacity molded into the engine case near the oil filler; others do not.

3. Your fuel petcock is vacuum activated. When the engine is running, a small amount of vacuum keeps the fuel flowing when the petcock is set to "On" (main tank) or "reserve" (emergency dregs of the tank). "Prim" stands for "prime," which permits fuel to flow without the presence of engine vacuum. You'd use this if you ran the bike out of gas and needed to get fuel to the carbs so that the engine could be started again. You don't want to keep your petcock set to "prime" for very long when the bike is turned off (or even when it's on) so that the carbs can't overfill. In extreme cases, you can fill your crankcase with gasoline, which can lead to hydraulic lock and the potential for serious engine damage if you try to run your bike like that (I've had that happen to me).

4. Again, without knowing the year and model of your bike, I am not able to provide any information about the spark plugs used by your bike. However, if your bike has 18mm spark plugs, you'll need an 18mm deep socket to install and remove them. I recommend using a 6-point over a 12-point socket for this purpose--and spending the extra dollar or two to get a good quality, brand name socket. I have never seen an 18mm "spark plug" socket, but if you're really concerned, you can take the little rubber insulator out of an old spark plug socket and stuff it in an 18mm deep socket. I have never bothered.
