The fuse box is under the seat. Look for a black plastic box, it is held in place by a rubber coated bracket.

Take the seat off and take the battery out. You have to remove the two bolts on that metal bracket that runs over the battery and it will come right out. The ground strap is attatched to one side so watch for that so you know to put it back while refitting the battery.

You also have to remove the rear bolt that holds the tank on . So you can tilt the tank a little bit.
You will have the plastic fill pieces off when you do it. (Sides under seat.)

You have to remove the seat and the two bolts from tank mount on sub frame. -------- Just remove the old battery connecting terminals.And fit the new battery to the exact place,connect the terminals.And all reverse or removing procedure to complete the fitting .This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

You can call your local Kawi dealer and order a engine part (like the alternator or clutch assembly) based on the code you have and they will tell you what year it is.

Hi, Ryan and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test "WARNING" you can have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps and the battery must be replaced.
2. 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.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Check the tickover nixture is correct first.

Unfortunately electrical issues can not be solved over the internet. There are just too many variables to cover. I suggest you start at the power source and work your way towards the ignition. Once you find where the power stops, you will find the issue.

First thing I would look at is the fuel tank cap. There is - or should be a tank breather tube. The cap and the tube can - and do - get clogged up with dirt. Clean this thoroughly with a solvent and poke something small into the hole(s) to ensure they are clear.
Also, check out the air filter - is one present ? If there is, is it clean ? Next, go for the spark plugs - these 400cc 4-strokes rev hard and high - more like 2-strokes - so the plugs take a real hammering. Invest in some iridium ones - well worth the expense.
