20 Most Recent 2001 kawasaki EL 250 Eliminator V Questions & Answers


Hi, Rotaru before you start it in the morning, pull the spark plugs and sniff them. Do they smell like gasoline? Are they wet? If so, you may have fuel leaking past the needle and seat in the carburetor and flooding the cylinders.
Use a voltmeter on the battery an hour after you shut the bike off. It should be at least 12.6 volts. Check it again in the morning. It should still be 12.6 volts or more. If not, something could be drawing current when the key is off.
If it's a carbureted bike and the ambient temperature is warm, you may be over-using your choke/enrichner. Try cranking it with the choke turned off first and then try half-choke, and then full choke. If you start with too much choke it will flood. After it starts, shut the choke off after 15 - 30 seconds and then use the throttle to keep the bike running until it warms up. Over-using the choke will soot up your spark plugs.
A fresh set of properly gapped spark plugs can make a lot of difference in how easily a bike starts.
Engines need a richer fuel mixture when they're cold. An intake leak can also cause hard starting because it leans out the air/fuel mixture.
After you get the bike started, spray some WD-40 or carb cleaner around the carburetor intake manifold seals. If the RPMs change, you have an intake leak.

Look under the seat or side panel,the fuses may be sealed in a black box which is clipped shut to protect from the wet.

2001 kawasaki EL... | Answered on Mar 04, 2010


Turn off the gas and remove the float bowl. Remove the fuel line. Remove the float pin and float with needle valve. Do not bend the tang that the float needle sits on. Spray carb cleaner into the seat where the needle valve came from to clear out any trash in the valve casing. Spray the float bowl and interior of the carb. Remount the needle and float back in place and put the float bowl back on. Install an in-line fuel filter. The diagram below shows a 1994 carb Yours will be the same or close to it.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

if you move the throttle linkage on the carb you will see which of the mounting holes rises and which goes the oppisite way. normally the front 1 is the pull and the rear is the push. do the same on the cables by twisting the throttle on and off so you can see which 1 goes which way. hope this helps

Hi, Anonymous it should be noted that the "AIR FUEL" mixture screw adjustment "ONLY" manages your idle and has no effect on any other circuit also any intake leaks must be repaired before the A/F adjustment procedure can be performed otherwise you will never obtain a proper idle and you will waste a lot of time chasing the impossible. The A/F mixture screw's purpose is to fine tune the fuel charge entering the combustion chamber. The following applies to both 2 and 4 stroke engines:
1. The mixture screw may be sealed at the factory with a Welch Plug please review the following video for removal.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAXcksgvDkM
2. The mixture screw manages a range of 3 complete 360-degree counterclockwise turns from the bottom/closed position.
3. The mixture screw should have a spring and o-ring for tension and sealing integrity.
4. Turn the mixture screw clockwise until it gently bottoms out, this makes the fuel charge very lean and the engine should not idle if it does then the pilot/idle jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller.
5. Turn the mixture screw 1 and 1/2 turns counterclockwise to establish a baseline for starting the engine.
6. To fine-tune the idle circuit, adjust the mixture screw 1/4 turn in or out to achieve maximum idle RPM, wait 15 seconds between each adjustment for the idle to settle.
7. Never go past 3 full turns out this will make the fuel charge rich, foul plugs, and produce black smoke out of the exhaust, if the engine RPM keeps increasing past 3 turns the pilot/idle jet is too small and needs to be replaced with the next size larger.
8. After achieving maximum idle back out the mixture screw another 1/8 of a turn then adjust the throttle cable idle stop screw to 950-1050 RPM.
9. This procedure works great on 99% of all engines, for the 1% that demand a more robust throttle response on aftermarket monster fuel delivery systems additional tweaking outside the box may be necessary.

wiring problem. go to any mechanic for solve it, dont try to fix by yourself if you dont about it.
Sometime, it have problem with your wire. if you have modified your motorcylce with something that have use battery from your motorcycle, i hope it modifed properly, if not it will cause short circuit.

Testing with voltmeter to test wired that was damaged. Using relay for lamp also have their weakness. Each eletronic for motorcycle have calculated for standard. Adding relay and modification with carburetor, head , champ, will make little difference to their prefomance. Maybe it will more powerful, but it will reduce their lifetime.

You have probobly check these things but worth a good look.
1. Is the choke working correctly
2. Is there extra air getting into fuel mix? Air filter and pre filter in good order and not perrised, Are the air box rubbers sealing on carbs and air box 100% these tend to harden an draw back into airbox off the carbs.
3. Check the above then remove the air filter and clean all part in air box housing any dirt/particals removed check deeper into air box also as there can be residue build up there, remove the pre filter from top of airbox housing and clean replace filter ir required start bike and warm up do not over rev with filter element out , spay some carb cleaner up and into air box slowly adding throttle as you do so, do this several times refit with new air filter if required fit the top of the housing checking that the little rubber gasket is in tact.
4. Check also the petrol tap is working correctly the vacuum, may not be 100% causing your power lag/starting problem.

To remove the fuel tank, remove the seat (there are two bolts that hold the rear part of it to the frame. Then remove the single bolt at the rear of the fuel tank. Raise the tank just enough so that you can slide the fuel lines off the petcock - and slide the tank back, and off.
The problem you are most likely going to encounter are plugged up carburetors. It only takes a few months of sitting for the gasoline to evaporate and leave behind a thick, gooey varnish. This being the case, you will need to remove the carbs, completely disassemble them and soak all the metal parts in carburetor cleaner (don't put any plastic or rubber parts in the carb cleaner, they'll be ruined). Upon reassembly, blow everything out with compressed air. This is a big job, so I hope you're lucky and it won't be needed.
Remember, the three required ingredients for combustion are: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time).
