Hi, Barry why do I get the feeling there is something your not telling me? They came off easy enough they should go back on the same easy way just make sure you do a proper wheel alignment and chain adjustment before you torque down the rear axle nut, for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

The problem is the tank is not uniformly shaped, narrower near the bottom. As the fuel drops below the widest parts into the narrower parts, it drops faster.
This is something you are probably going to have to live with.

Hi Mathewacklin, you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

Always very frustrating when you have an issue like this. Just to recap on my understanding what you have ruled out:
- not a battery issue as you have a car battery linked up!?
- not the starter motor as you have tried a second one!?
- rotation is only slightly better with the plugs removed ( trust this is all four? )
My suggestions would be:
1) remove all the plugs and with the bike in neutral, remove the timing cover at the crank and turn the crank clockwise and see how much resistance you get over a few full revolutions. Everything should move nice and easy, if it does not then there is something mechanically wrong in the engine.
2) when did you last change the oil and filter? I would suggest you do this to ensure you do not have a load of sludge in there which will certainly add lots of resistance when cranking a cold motor.
3) is it possible you are experiencing clutch drag? When cranking the bike pull the clutch in to ensure the clutch is truly disengaged and not dragging.
Try the above points and let me know how you get on.

It may be dirty carbs try cleaning them and make sure non of the jets are clogged

kawasaki ZZR... | Answered on Jan 25, 2014 | 137 views

sounds like the fuel sending unit in the tank and the temp sensor is probably bad or grounded out

kawasaki ZZR... | Answered on Jan 24, 2014 | 120 views

Try keeping them in proper position for a while, if thats how it became, the reverse idea should work.

from what year it is?

kawasaki ZZR... | Answered on Aug 01, 2013 | 16 views

Fuel issue (could be clogged jets)
Loose spark plug boots (lack of spark could cause it as well).

Clogged exhaust making excess exhaust pressure.

If you can smell coolant in the exhaust steam, I am afraid you may have a leaking head gasket.
