Question about 2005 kawasaki ZX-6R

1 Answer


My 636 had a dead battery. New battery, charged, and still nothing. Hollowed out tip over switch and fixed the problem (bike was wrecked). Bike turns now but will not start. I have the FI light on my guages. Is there a fuel switch or something? I think i put stuff back the way i took apart. Bike ran about 6 months ago i rode but it sat awhile. Fuel stabilizer maybe? It turns like it wants to start but no start. Ive been putting the bike back together anything i might have missed connector wise? I just connected the gas line back up and figured that was it. Fuel pump does cycle when turn key

    If the FI light is staying on when you turn the key, the bike wont start. The servo valve under the driver seat is your problem. Make sure when you turn the key on that the valve turns clockwise then back counter clockwise. If it doesn't you have a bad servo valve or a disconnected plug to it.

    If the FI light stays on when you turn the key the bike WONT start. Check the servo valve under the driver seat and make sure the wire connector is plugged. The valve should rotate clockwise and then back counter clockwise when the key is turned to the on position.

Have a 2006 vtx1300c dead nothing works battery is 13 volts

Sounds like a wiring problem. I would start at the switch and go back to the starter checking all connections especially the ones you replaced.

Brand new battery dosent stay charged. charge battery and bike runs fine....then battery goes dead...charge battery bike runs good but pull a wire off battery and bike dies. Im thinking stator is

You need to check the charging current and also the discharging of the battery in the IDLE mode.
Please check this link for some tips.

Use a multimeter to check the charging current and also discharging rate when the engine is switched off.

The alternator and accessories must be checked.

The bike sat for nine months I kept it in the garage and covered but when try starting nothing happens but oil light

Sounds like the battery may not be charged. Put a charger on the battery, bring to a full charge. Try starting. If it won't crank, locate a load tester and check the battery for weakness/dead cell. If the battery is not the problem, the starter/starter solenoid may have corroded/dirty contacts.

After fitting new battery on my fjr 1300 Drove a long journey stoped and it would not start as if the battery was dead. left it for a while and it started with loads of power in the battery any thoughts...

Have your charging system looked at, first do a simple multimeter test, get a multimeter, switch it on to Volts, start bike and see what it reads, put multimeter prongs directly on battery, very simple, if its below 12V you have a charging problem. If your battery is new and your charging system is faulty the bike will start and go, but when you switch it off the battery will be dead because it has not been charging. When you let a dead battery sit for a while it will charge itself a little, enough to start the bike up. Have you ever had a flat torch or mobile phone, it will die when battery is flat but when you try and switch them on again after a little while, they will work a little and die again, same with bikes, cars etc. All the best, Forever Two Wheels :)

Tried starting bike it clicked then went completly dead is it the battery,whn i turn on the switch nothing happens

A good possibility. Take the battery out of the bike and take it to an autoparts store. Ask them to load test the battery. They'll usually test it for no charge.

Good Luck

The bike is completely dead. I put the key in and nothing happens. Ive had the bike on the charger and still nothing. Will a new battery fix this problem or could it be something else?

Hello first have the battery checked off the bike if it is dead then you need of course a new battery. then if it is good well you know the answer something else.

A problem starting up

Check the fuses. Next, check for spark. If no spark then check again but with a new plug. Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Tip-over kill switch on your bike? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

Check the loom. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. With a little luck this will get you back on the road.

Please rate this answer. Thanks
