Just check on your air ducts. When the bike is staionery it will idle rev and even run well on the dyno, but on the open road the airducts must be in and instadled or mounted correctly

How to change the engine oil. You will need to remove lower part of fairing to access under the engine. There you will find a drain bolt to undo. A large bolt located on the underside of the engine, usualy with an aluminium washer, or O ring. Undo the bolt and catch the oil in a suitable container. This should be done when the engine is warm, as the oil will flow out better. When empty, replace the sump bolt, preferebly with a new washer so it wont leak.
Replace the correct amount of oil back into the bike.
On top of the transfer case will be a plug you can undo by hand, the oil filler, mabey this has a dip stick on it for level. Most Kawasaki also had a site glass for the oil level, on the lowe , side of the engine.

This is a known problem for the 96-97 model.
You can have it welded, (Aluminum!)
But make sure you disconnect the electricity connections from your frame.

dont think you can edit the heading, just list your problem, and identify your bike and year, under a similar model.
write as much as you know about the problem including what you have already tried, is the bike regularly serviced, by yourself or a bike shop, how long the problem has been happening,how long you have had the bike etc

This is just blow by from the crankcase breather system..the trapped oil in the box should be drawn back into the fuel air mixture to be reburned..its a smog pollution control design thingy..there is probably a hose attached to the bottom section of the air box...follow that hose to make sure that it didn't fall off from the top of the valve cover area..i think thats were it hooks least thats where it is on my 87 cbr...i occasionally see a little oil in the box but nothing to worry about. if the hose is off its probably leaking down onto the exhuast pipes and thats the smoke you see. please let me know im curious.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, ensure that the battery is fully charged or better yet have it load tested.

Offhand, locate the starter relay by following the cable from the battery's + terminal. It would end in 1 of 2 terminals in the starter relay. Jump the 2 big terminals; expect a big spark. If the starter spins, then the starter relay is faulty.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Did you check to see if it burned out? Before you pull it out ... check the fuse. Changing the battery had little to no impact on your head light burning out ...

Thanks for your interest in

Wow, quite a long time in storage. Anyway when you store it so long you need to clean and replace everything, YES, everything thatr can be affected by moisture, dust and condensation.
Main concern must be for all fuel and combustion systems flows including re-newing all oils before using the bike again. Have you cleaned the carb and fuel lines? Change the air and fuel filter?
