Question about 2004 kawasaki VN 1600 Mean Streak
I have a 2005 1600 Classic. Started fouling the front plugs and acts like it has bad gas. This started happening at the end of summer for the past two years. This time Fi cleaner and gas boost has not helped. Took a ride ran well until I returned home after approximately 30 miles. Began missing and smoking. @
Hi, 10dtucker and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirty air filter.
2. Fuel mixture too rich or the choke left out too long.
3. Faulty spark plug.
4. Incorrect spark plug heat range for the engine type or service.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off the valve guide and are pumping oil through it.
7. Spark plug cable weak or leaking check for spark jump in the dark.
8. Faulty ignition coil.
9. Low RPM nonaggressive riding style.

That clicking noise comes from the start-relay, that tells your battery is out of power or almost out of power, when the battery isent giving enough of power the start-relay clicks. Recharge the battery,
Now for that other thing, that your bike dies around 4-5 rpm, that can be caused by many things but i think that you will find the solution in the carbs. You told us that the bike has been standing outside for 3 years, that tells me that you carbs is in need of cleaning. Inside the carbs is a lot of smal parts that opens and closes when you hit the gas, after so long time outside some part dosent work as they should, therefore when you hit the 4-5rpm the bike dosent get the right mix of fuel and air since the carbs harsh and the bike dies.
Take the bike to a repaire shop and let them clean and calibrate the carbs and your problem will be solved.

If the level of engine oil keeps going down (even in very small amount), then it shows a problem with piston rings. Hope it helps and let me know if you need more advice. Please don't forget to rate the answer it helps me, thanks!

The jets in your carburetors are restricted from fuel sitting in bike and turning to varnish. The color change on the pipes is an indication of the bike running excessively lean due to insufficient fuel. You will need to remove, clean and adjust the carburetors.
