Question about 1997 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja
97 zx6r it started once. We were able to ride but the bike was bogging down. Now it won't turn over at all what do you think? @
Hi, Sirusvango 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.

ok, assuming you replaced the carb header and stator with aftermarket parts, then I would say you definitely have a jetting issue. that flat spot is coming from your engine starving for fuel. its taking the gas too long to get from the carb to the engine. you would fix this by adjusting the idle mixture on the carb. the first thing I would do is look for the fuel mixture screw on the carb. im not familiar with your specific model. but the screw is usually found facing down on the bottom of the carb, directly in front of the bowl. when you find it, turn it counter clockwise about 1/2 turn at a time until that flat spot fades away. if that doesnt work, then you will need to up the size of the pilot jet inside the carb. maybe 1 or 2 sizes would be enough. if you replaced the carb with a bigger carb, then you may not be able to fix this problem. in my experience, larger carbs will increase power, but usually throttle response, especially low end, suffers considerably. the reason for this is lower intake velocity and vacuum. basically, with a bigger carb it takes a second longer for the fuel to be drawn from the carb and properly atomize with the air. hope this helps.if I overlooked anything let me know! some more info on the engine/modifications and carb/jet sizes would help too. good luck.

first thing to do is to check fuel level. you mentioned about 290 miles since you owned it but no fillups. did you get gas from same store? not unusual to pickup trash or water in fuel from conv. stores. with that out of the way, look at your plugs and see what they look like. black and sooty would be fuel fouled and very white or very light tan would be lean. if plugs and fuel are eliminated, it could be the result of a stator coil starting to go south. these will require special tools to diagnose.

Testimonial: "Very quick to respond and helpful!"
SOURCE: new stator cover bike wont start
useing a multimeter set to d.c check your charge at the battery whith out the motor running it should read above 12 volts determine the voltage stored in the battery with the meter stil conected hit the start button if the meter shows a dramatic drop in voltage its almost certain that the battery is shot howevwer if the voltage does not drop & it wont start bump start it conect the meter still set on dc increase the revs asyou do this the voltage should climb to 13.50 if it does & maintains 13.50 to 13.65 the chargeing system can be declared ok & you only need replace the battery however if it goes above 14 volts the voltage regulator is faulty & cooking the battery so you will need to replace both
