Hi, Louise_23263 you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue. Multi carb banks should be bench "SYNC"
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes, multi-cylinder engines should be within 10-15% of each other if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or its counterpart for integrity.

Hi, Jesse the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

Hi, Joshjsan I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Cylinders---PING
7. Fronk Forks---Plunk
8. Gears---WHINE
9. Head Gasket---HISS
10. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
11. Pistons---SLAP
12. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
13. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
14. Solid Lifters---TICK
15. Starters---CLICK
16. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

Coil packs are absolutely not the problem...the problem is a mixture of the float valves not closing correctly and a sticking vacuum fuel tap.

2002 kawasaki... | Answered on May 22, 2012


The carb is flooding because of a stuck needle valve in the float chamber. When the bike is running at higher revs, it is probably drawing enough fuel into the engine to run OK, but at low revs, the overflowing petrol will be getting into the engine in far too higher volume and flooding the cylinder, drowning the spark plug.

You will need to remove the float chamber from the carb, take out the pivot pin that the float hinges on in order to release the needle valve and clean it out. 99% of the time simply dropping the needle valve out, giving it a wipe with a lint free cloth and flushing a little clean petol through the inlet pipe to dislodge any obstruction will fix the problem. While the float chamber is off, check that there is no dirt in the bottom and that the entire chamber is clean and free of any muck.

There will probably be a drain valve on the side of the carb (Usually a brass screw set into the base of the carb float chamber at a slight angle). Before you go to the trouble of removing the carb from the bike, try this:

Turn off the fuel supply.
Put a cup under the carb to catch fuel.
Remove the drain plug and allow the fuel in the float chamber to run out.
Now the float is sitting at its lowest possible position inside the float chamber, turn the fuel supply back on and as petrol runs out of the drain hole, tap the carb sharply and repeadedly with the end of a screwdriver as you let about a pint of petrol flush through.
Turn off the fuel supply and replace the drain plug.

The flushing and tapping MAY dislodge the obstruction that is holding the needle valve open and fix the problem without having to remove the carb

What sort of problems?
Slacken off the adjusters, slip the chain onto the rear sproket and adjust the slack.

2002 kawasaki... | Answered on Jul 28, 2011


Check the fan by connecting it directly to a 12V source. If it powers up, check the fan's relay and/or fuses. If they are good, the problem is in the temperature sensor that tells the fan it's time to come on. Good luck and safe riding.

it sounds like there is to much oil in the engine the same thing happened to my zx6r, hold the bike upright on level ground then check oil level on the glass viewing window which is on the right hand side of engine, you should see oil level between the low and high marks, if level is above top line you will need to drain some oil out by undoing sump bolt or using a siphon, when ever checking oil level bike needs to be upright on levelish ground some people check oil levels when bike is on side stand which is wrong as it shows oil level as low when in-fact its probably right
