    I have owned all three. The Bandit was comfy enough but lacked the power of the ZZr1100. The Max was very uncomfortable on rides beyond 60 minutes and it was getting uncomfortable in 30 minutes. The ZZR1100 was best for distance and had great handling and power. They are known as a Sport tour for that reason. Took mine (1999 ZX11) from Northern Calif to Colorado and up to Casper Wy. Then back in about 7 days time. I was tired but returned to normal in a few days. I wouldnt get caught ever going out of state on my MAX. It would be improved with a Corbin seat and a windshield but it lacks in the handling department. The Bandit was the next best choice but is no match for the ZZR11 in any catagory.

Running well at high revs would indicate that all the fuel and air it needs are getting to the engine and you also have a good spark. Probably no problem with air and fuel filter ( if fitted) or sparkplugs.

Running hot, and bad idling are signs of a lean air fuel mixture. The engine is probably not getting enough fuel at low revs.

This could be caused by an air leak between the carburettors and the engine. Check that the vacuum line to the fuel tap is properly secured at both ends. It is behind the fuel line at the tap.

Get a a short length of hollow plastic tube and use it like a stethascope - put one end to your ear and move the other end around your carburettor mounts with your engine revs as low as you can get, and listen for any sucking noises that would indicate a leak. Look for cracks in the rubber inlets.

The other possibility is that there is an internal blockage in the idling jets or idling fuel circuit. This is where dirt tends to lodge because the jet dimensions and passageways are very fine - The high speed jets are much bigger and dirt often just passes straight through.

Try a little bit of choke while the engine is warm to see if you get a stronger low speed response. If so that would point to an internal blockage.

The carbs have been balanced but not synchronized? Each of the four carb slides needs to begin to open at the exact same time. Being out of sync can cause your problem. The balance and sync on a four cylinder bike is best done in the shop. If you try it yourself have a fire extinguisher handy. < < I am serious here.

Since the carbs have been cleaned and 'adjusted', I will take the liberty to note the air screw and the idle screw factory settings and how to set them. On each carb, GENTLY turn both screws inward until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw outward one and one half turns. Now you are back to the stock settings.

If your bike has CDI ignition, the timing is preset and is not adjustable.

Please rate this answer. Thanks Corrie!

Clean your carbs! Your floats might be sticking open a bit. Plus, all Kawasakis have a simple spring-actuated check valve in the fuel valve. This way, you can disconnect the fuel line without having to block the flow. Fuel could be leaking through the check valve. Your problem most liklely identifies dirty gasoline. Clean out your tank, your carbs, and change your fuel filter.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific WATERCRAFT. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

If looking for an electrical schematic this site will not help. You will need a service manual for that.

Hi , what is the correct battery for my kawasaki zx 10 b1 model 1989 ?? please help , iam going through batteries like 2 - 3 per year !! please


The stock battery is Yuasa brand, YB14L-A2. Be sure to keep the water level in the battery above the top of the plates in each cell. Also, check the voltage across the battery terminals while the bike engine is running around 2500rpm. The voltmeter should read around 14.5 volts. If it reads 15 or higher the voltage regulator is probably bad. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks!
