If the tail light comes on , then it may be the headlight bulb,so try with high and low beam
if the tail light bulb doesnt come on, then it can be a fuse, relay, switch block, ignition switch, broken wire, bad corrector and the list continues, so it is out with the multi meter and test light and some electrical knowledge to track it down.

there is only 1 vin on the bike, if your planning on registering it your gonna need it. The only other way would be to locate the frame number and have a kawi dealer cross reference for a vin, but being 6 years old, might not be able to. cant the owner just get it off his registration for you ? aslo, becarefull of receiving stolen property, sounds like an issue to me.

When you say it does nothing....no lights work at all...or you just can't crank starter?
Are you sure new battery is charged and the Main fuse is okay..should be close to battery.
No chance of rodent damage to wiring while sitting?

I think what you want is an exploded view of the clutch assembly. You can go to the site below and see the clutch and every other part of your bike. Please rate my answer. Thanks! www.babbittsonline.com

YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE SEAT, TANK AND AIR BOX, THE PLUGS ARE LOCATED IN THE CYLINDER HEAD THE PLUG CAPS COMPLETELY COVER THE HOLE IN THE HEAD THE PLUG SITS IN, (TIP) DO 1 PLUG AT A TIME MAKING SURE YOU REPLACE THE CAP BEFORE YOU DO THE NEXT 1, THIS WAY YOU WONT MIX UP THE LEADS, REMEMBER THE PLUGS SIT IN A DEEP HOLE AND ARE QUITE EASILY CROSS THREADED, REFIT USING CORRECT SPANNER BY HAND, TO START WITH WHEN YOU ARE SURE THE PLUG IS IN CORRECT THEN FINNISH OFF TO THE CORRECT TIGHTNESS WITH A WRENCH

gas will start to go bad just after 30 days,so if it sat for 6 months then the gas has gone bad and trashed out your carbs,time for another carb clean/rebuild,gas will turn to a varnish which will stop up any tiny size holes like the jets.

Get the starter and battery connection checked.Also check if the battery voltage is correct and battery is fully charged up to 12 volts.If the battery is not properly charged, it can be low battery issue.Also if battery is loosing charge again n again, then it can be problem with voltage regulator.The voltage regulator is not charging the battery.Check power to the starter with ignition turned on, if there is no power to starter, that means the battery to starter connection is loose or faulty.Or the starter it self is faulty.--------if it doesnt crank/start check the battery, battery cables etc, if it cranks but does not start. Verify that you have spark, and fuel.-------
This should help.thanks.Helpmech.

What is your problem with ninja?

kawasaki ZX-6R... | 67 views | 0 helpful votes


you have probably sorted this out by now, anyway its easy to say replace in reverse order, so i wont,
you dont say what bike it is fitted to, i would first sugest you have a look at the undeside of the seat, you want to observe at the front of the seat, you will find a forward facing lug of plastic, (if your seat is plastic) around the tank area," on the frame you should see a cross member that the tank itself bolts to", the plastic lug should fit under this first, holding up the rear of the seat slightly, slide the lug under the crossmember untill it is forward as far as it will go then lower the rear of the seat into place you should hear a clicking noise as the seat locks into place WARNING MAKE SURE THE BIKES KEYS ARE IN THE IGNITION AND NOT UNDER THE SEAT AT THIS POINT. Seats do varey and some have more than 1 front fixing, some are made from steel, some hinge, and some bolt instead of locking, some have obscured bolts behind panels, and so on, ask yourself how easy did it come off. if you are still having problems with this seat contact me with make and model and i will do my best to help, good luck and happy motoring, paul

Check the main fuse, it may have blown
Check that on/off switch hasn't shorted out, when you hit the start button you should be sending power to your solenoid which sends power to the starter motor.

If your stator/ rotor cover seal is bad, water may have got on the stator and corroded.
If it filled with water then its shorted out.
Start at the battery with a test light and work your way through your wires to see where you loose power.
For example: If you dont have spark, unplug your coil and see if you have power to the coil, if you do have power to the coil then the coil is bad.
If you dont have power to the coil, then the coil is probably good once you get power restored to it.
Trace the wire back to see where it looses power, it could be in the ignition switch.
