There are any number of reasons that could be happening, anything from Dirty Air filters, or a busted/blocked fuel line, to a seized piston or bad spark?
I'd try the simple stuff first, by way of elimination before taking it to a mechanic...
~ Remove the seats and fuel tank.
~ Check Fuel hoses for bad seals, blockages or cracks.
~ Replace the spark plugs and spray some brake/contact cleaner into the connections.
~ Take your Air-Filter out and clean/replace it. (Accessed from under tank generally)
~ If you have access to a Carb-tuner, or similar, attach it to the vacuum plugs on your carbies and tune them up by turning the screws between the cylinders until they all level out. (Check youtube for videos on how to use them)
~ Ensure your exhaust isn't blocked, or restricted. Place your hand at the end of the pipe when running and see if the air flow remains linear up the rev range.
~ Check your coolant level in the resovior and radiator.
~ Drain your oil from the sump plug and replace with fresh oil. Replace Oil filter at same time.
~ If there was a fuel filter on your fuel line, check it is not full of crud. If so, replace or clear it of all crud materiel. (This is a commonly over-looked issue!)
~ Check battery terminals are clean and battery has charge. If you have access to a Multi-Meter this is usually the best way to check. (Again, see youtube for videos on how-to)
~ If you're feeling daring, remove the carbies and clean them using Motul Carb-Clean or any good Brake Cleaner. (This can be a fiddly job, don't loose any screws!)
These are a few things that, in my experience, are the simplest way of self problem solving before you take the bike to a mechanic.
(It can also help save you time and money because the Mechanic will not have to do all this him/herself. If they're any good, they'll appreciate you having a crack.)
Don't be afraid to take a screw or two out and have a look too. You never know, you might just solve the problem quickly and easily yourself and save a few hundred bucks in the process.
Enjoy!

1999 Kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja correct air mixture screw setting


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.

Your throttle body solenoid has taken a dump... change it.. or have someone change it out and it should be fine.

What is an OBD code 51 on 1990 toyota corolla 1.6L 4A-FE and how to test?


Well this answer is going to be a bit fuzzy.
Code 51 is for a switch signal issue. The possible causes are the throttle position switch, the neutral safety switch, and the ac compressor switch. One of those three is not sending a signal to the computer. So if its the ac switch, you know why.
But all three would need to be checked out.

Change the coolant temp sensor,the one for the computer.also a leaking injector will drain fuel into the engine which shows up on a hot engine which does not want lots of fuel to start but a cold one likes it.Also a leaking pressure regulator could leak fuel into the intake sitting hot.

Zx6r erratic throttle


Just check on your air ducts. When the bike is staionery it will idle rev and even run well on the dyno, but on the open road the airducts must be in and instadled or mounted correctly

Poor throttle response below 4,000 revs.


The carbs need to be re-tuned for the exhaust. It doesn't seem like like it needs to be rejetted just idle mixtures adjusted. this would be something that a mechanic should do because there are four carbs and they need to be syncronized with each other
