Question about 2006 kawasaki ZZR 600
Hi guys, I just got my 2006 Kawasaki ZZR600. Has about 45k miles. Runs good (after a lot of minor tune-ups.. the last owner never washed it what else can I say). Anyways long story short. I found one helpful post here about the clutch switch. I took it apart, clean it. Same thing. Ordered a new clutch switch (OEM for $28 on eBay). Put it in - the same thing won't start on the gear with the pulled clutch (no kickstand). It won't even start when you have neutral and pulled the clutch. Only if you release the clutch and start on the N. Any other ideas? Thanks! @
Hi, Dennis 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.

Testimonial: "When I posted I found another video (about another bike) where the owner was talking about a simular problem. Long story short - I went outside, touched the cable that goes to the stand sensor and problem has been solved. Thanks!"

This sounds more like a carb problem. Has she been sitting up? If she has sat up, gas will dry up in the carb and it dries like a varnish. If she has sat un-used, and un-started for a month or longer, gas starts to dry and it leaves behind this varnish like film. You can try a product called Seafoam, Try and get some in the carb. let it sit for a few days. Drain the tank and mix a can in a small amount of clean gas, crank it up let it run until you know it is in the carb. let it sit. Come back in 2 - 3 days and see if it will start up then. If it still does not want to run right you will need to remove the carb and give it a good cleaning. Do not mess with any settings or any adjustment screws just clean it. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Take a paperclip or piece of wire and bridge out the two wires that attach to the sidestand switch. Unplugging them opens the circuit- to bypass you need to close the circuit.
