Hi, Mike before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 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 type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the 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.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi, Frank 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 zero $0 you can download another one.

Most yoshimura exhausts have a large circlip holding in the baffle, some have an 8mm Bolt or alun head bolt, remove the retainer and grip baffle twist an pull slightly to remove some baffles have silicone around them to seal it which could hamper removal

G'day,
I have a suggestion.
It worked with no airbox( airbox lid I guess you mean).
Then I would think that your problem would almost certainly be a blockage or restriction to the air flow entering the airbox intake.
Look in the airbox,with the lid off-And see where the air enters the box- the air ducts on each side.
Make sure these are clear of any obstruction.
Check the air intake vent in the front of the fearing for obstructions.
I feel pritty sure you'll find your problem here(I hope!).
See how you go
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli

Has the bike been setting up over winter or for a length of time over a couple weeks, with gas in the gas in the tank? If so, the ethanol additive to gas has caused the fuel to gum up and block carb jets and passages. My recommendation, if setting up is the case is to put a can of SeaFoam in the fuel tank, shake the bike back and forth to mix the fuel and SeaFoam. Start the bike and run at high idle for a few minutes. Shut it down and let set a couple hours and start and run at high idle again. Repeat this several times trying to accelerate. If it's a gum problem, it should clean itself up with one can of SeaFoam. If it doesn't, it could be an adjustment problem, or the carbs will need a manual cleaning.

Please replace your spark plug with new one. Just use the recommended spark plug.

Hi, best thing is to get the tyre removed and fitted at a reputable garrage, not sure if you have a brand new wheel, in which case you will need to remove and replace the bearings and seals from the wheel, seals just push in and bearings are a tight fit and often need renewing when removed, fit into new wheel in the same way, using a lite grease when re fitting, most discs are handed left and right, locate the direction of rotation markings which you will find on one of the spokes on the wheel, remove discs 1at a time and replace on to new wheel on the same side as that it was previously fitted on the old wheel, good luck

do not try starting again until oil level and water level are confirmed. I would have a mechanic take a look at it to know for sure but sounds like you may have blown the head gasket

2000 kawasaki... | 149 views | 0 helpful votes


That is a lean condition,on the bottom side of carbs are mixture screws,if they are located on front side of carb between cylinder they are fuel/air turn counter clockwise1/4 turn to richen,if on backside of carb,between air box/filter they are air/fuel,turn clockwise 1/4 turn to richen,then check,if you blip throttle and rpms drop then rise its to rich,may have to try few times to get it right.

Try to unplug the ventilator and give it directly 12V DC. If it alone works, then your problem is your temperature sensor.

It sounds like that hose which runs fron the cap area (inside) the fuel tank to the back bottom is broke, if you take it to a Kawasaki dealer and have your dealer call Kawasaki there is a good chance it will get covered as long as the tank is damaged. Those hoses (metal) that run inside the fuel tak sometimes crack, there is really not way of fixing them unless you cut the tank open and then you would need to reweld it.

I haven't worked on a ninja of this year, but most sport bikes this year require you to remove the seat, then tank, then air box, and the spark plugs should be accessable at that point. It's not difficult, but usually takes a couple hours if you're being careful. Make sure your gentle with the fuel lines.

Start with plugs. If this don't do it. You may have some bad parts in your carbs. Think about having them rebuilt not just cleaned.

2000 kawasaki... | 211 views | 0 helpful votes


no fuel will definitely be a problem. make sure all connections are good.

Stop riding the bike. The tranny could lock up at any moment > like at 60 mph in traffic. The gearbox will need to be opened upand the problem located and fixed. The fix is not going to be cheap $$$$

Hi, Djplos to properly fix fuel contamination issues you must start at the source the "GAS TANK" you will need to buy a gas tank rust remover and metal prep solution system, go online and research the different products available, stay away from rust converters and liquid Kreem liners, I recommend POR15 because it stops rust permanently you will also need some nuts and bolts ball bearings etc. and a service manual.
1. Remove the tank and drain all fuel and let dry.
2. Remove petcock and filter or fuel pump and filter.
3. Seal all openings except the top fuel filler opening with tape, plugs, or rubber *******.
4. Fill the tank with a strong solution of Dawn soap and water, seal the opening and shake vigorously for 1 minute and let sit for 30 minutes, remove the gas cap and pour out contents, rinse with a garden hose or pressure washer and let dry thoroughly.
4. Pour in 1/2 cup of nuts, bolts, ball bearings, etc. and seal the opening, shake vigorously for 2 minutes.
5. Open the gas cap and shake out all nuts and bolts along with dirt and rust, use a flashlight to inspect results and repeat as necessary until all rust is removed.
6. Following the directions of your rust remover product begin the procedure of removing residual rust, remember bare metal when dry will start to rust/oxidize immediately so make your last step a final rinse of solvent or kerosene anything that has a petroleum base, your first tank of fuel will mix with the residual solvent and not damage your fuel system.
7. Properly clean or replace all fuel filters, petcock, and fuel lines.
8. Remove and disassemble carburetor/s and properly clean all parts use a carburetor dip if necessary for the really bad ones.
9. For you injected folks use carb cleaner for the injectors and fuel rails and test with battery jumpers for proper function. If your not in a hurry I recommend the services of Injectorrx.com
