...??.. the bore that the plunger rides in may be worn to the point of allowing it to bind... its a wear related thing..your bike/master cylinder IS 28 YEARS old...
Do a full master cylinder rebuild..if it does not fix it.. think about a NEW master cylinder..(a used one is NOT ok)..

Tip

Storage of motor cycles


in regards to storing a bike that might be sitting idle for a long period of time . You should remove the spark plugs and put a small amount of engine oil in each cylinder about a tea spoon of oil in each would do the trick as this will prevent the piston rings binding to the cylinder walls due to any rust build up and then replace the spark plugs, flushing out any extra fuel in the carbs and fuel line should also be done and perhaps some DW40 sprayed into the line and carbs as a protector for rubber parts etc , the fuel from your tank should be removed and some sort of rust protection sprayed into it (WD40 ) .If the bike is stored outside condensation can build up under plastic covers so spraying exposed parts like the front forks around the rear suspension and many nuts and bolts with WD40 will help , also a good waxing over the whole bike is helpful , remove the battery and try to keep the tiers off the ground or at least slip something under them so water will not perish the rubber , block the exhaust pipe so water can not enter but condensation can escape ( a tin can that fits over the muffler opening ) and i suggest that you move the bike by pushing it a few feet back and forth every 2 months to prevent any parts from locking up . one more final thought lock the bike up very secure making it difficult to be stolen as a parked bike sitting for a long time can attract criminals !

Hi, Gsxrdf73 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 $15 you can download another one.

The stock battery is Yuasa brand, YB14L-A2. Be sure to keep the water level in the battery above the top of the plates in each cell. Also, check the voltage across the battery terminals while the bike engine is running around 2500rpm. The voltmeter should read around 14.5 volts. If it reads 15 or higher the voltage regulator is probably bad. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks!

You still have an obstruction in one or more carb. Start it cold and start feeling for a cold exhaust pipe. (That will be the bad cylinder) Be careful as they get hot very fast.
