Question about kawasaki 2004 Prairie 700 4x4
I would also reccommend that you remove the carburetor and drain the water thats in it, even if theres just a tiny amount. The above ppl have a great ideas also . And could be almost anything. If you are not familliar with this type work, i personally would take it somewhere if i was unsure if what exactly to look for in this case..im not saying your not capable, im simply saying rather than chasing everything down, best of luck

You changed the spark plug and wire did u crack the engine over with the spark plug out? I would imagine your cylinder is full of water if you haven’t gotten the water out of the cylinder. It would have filled up through the carb/air intake also I would assume you have a fuse somewhere that could have blown

You say it won't crank. Do you mean the motor will not turn over or it will not start? If it will turn over then first check for spark. Pull the plug and ground it and make sure you have a good steady spark. Make sure there is no fuel around when you do this. If no spark then it is electrical. Cdi, coil etc. If you have spark give it a shot of starter fluid and it should hit. If it does then you have a fuel/air problem.

Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Bought unit new last summer.
Unable to crank? Do you mean unable to start?
If you leave gasoline inside tank over long period of time, that will 'gum-up' and ruin carburetor.
To prevent problem, put additive in gasoline or empty gas from tank:: under gas tank should be a hex bolt that holds up gas filter > loosen bolt and drain gas.
Starting the engine:
Take off air filter and spray WD-40 directly into carburetor.
Start engine, engine should fire on the WD-40 accelerant.
If engine fires but does not keep running, try spraying WD-40 into carburetor continuously to see if you can keep engine going.
If engine stops each time after it no longer gets WD-40, then carburetor is bad or gasoline not getting to carburetor or gasoline is bad.
Try fresh gasoline.
Do not turn small engine on side or upside down or oil will get into carburetor.
Check gas supply: Go to gas filter under gas tank. Pull loose rubber hose that connects to carburetor and see if gas comes out rubber hose.
If gas is flowing to carburetor, then carburetor is gummed up.
Small engine repair might suggest 'gum out' or have other suggestions ... but you may need a new carburetor
If engine will not fire on WD-40
If engine will not fire on WD-40 at all, then spark coil may be bad or exhaust port is clogged
Check screen that covers exhaust >> is it covered with carbon and dirt or can air pass through it easily?
Remove spark plug
Put spark wire back on spark plug
Hold spark plug by rubber spark cap so hands don't touch metal part of spark plug
Touch spark plug threads against hole where spark plug was removed >>> metal to metal so it conducts electricity
Pull start cord and look for sparking between spark plug threads and metal of engine (don't look at the spark gap ... look where metal meets metal
If you have no spark, the spark coil is bad >> time for estimate from small engine repair shop or get your part number and order replacement
