20 Most Recent 1990 kawasaki ZX 10 Questions & Answers


Hi, Teford1 derestrict is a negative term rider's use to express their wish to improve performance on their bike or scooter. Depending on the country and motor vehicles laws some bikes and scooters are designed to conform with said laws and their performance is slightly lower than other countries. All vehicles in the world are designed to perform at 75-80% of their maximum potential, this ensures the longevity of the engine. Derestricting or improving performance is always possible on any vehicle but the tradeoff of engine longevity numbers go down, how much depends on the number and type of performance upgrades. Your local dealership or reputable independent shop are best equipped to provide you with technical data and willingness to comply with your needs.

Yah I saw the year model selected problem myself you did the right thing call locksmiths till one says they'll come by to fix it better ask their prices first I've been told $300 but haven't had to pay it fixed many bikes for this but not your model. When you finally get the new key engrave the number somewher on the bike so you can find it again if needed. I have done this to my bike as I know that the dealer and manufacturer both don't keep the code it's yours now ones that have a new dealer lein on them the repo man may be told the number but they mostly just tow them.

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.

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

Did you try swap the plug itself or just replace both plugs?
