Question about kawasaki Full Suspension Mountain Bike Men

1 Answer

2003 Kawasaki zx1200c motorcycle running rough

Changed plugs. Have better than 6mm spark at all cylinders. All carburetors passing fuel.

Bike will not run without some choke. When running at about 1100 RPM (about the slowest it will run), if the throttle is slowly applied, the engine starts to miss and if the throttle is increased the engine dies.

What is the reason when bike reach to 60km/hr and when bike climbing the hill that time bike get missfire?


Hi, Amolthite and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Intake air leak.
10. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
11. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
12. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
13. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
14. Damaged carburetor.

2002 Kawasaki KLX 650 R hard to start cold


Hi, Robbie before you start it in the morning, pull the spark plugs and sniff them. Do they smell like gasoline? Are they wet? If so, you may have fuel leaking past the needle and seat in the carburetor and flooding the cylinders.
Use a voltmeter on the battery an hour after you shut the bike off. It should be at least 12.6 volts. Check it again in the morning. It should still be 12.6 volts or more. If not, something could be drawing current when the key is off.
If it's a carbureted bike and the ambient temperature is warm, you may be over-using your choke/enrichner. Try cranking it with the choke turned off first and then try half-choke, and then full choke. If you start with too much choke it will flood. After it starts, shut the choke off after 15 - 30 seconds and then use the throttle to keep the bike running until it warms up. Over-using the choke will soot up your spark plugs.
A fresh set of properly gapped spark plugs can make a lot of difference in how easily a bike starts.
Engines need a richer fuel mixture when they're cold. An intake leak can also cause hard starting because it leans out the air/fuel mixture.
After you get the bike started, spray some WD-40 or carb cleaner around the carburetor intake manifold seals. If the RPMs change, you have an intake leak.

Cub cadet cuts out unless with full choke


Use a thin business card to set the module to flywheel magnets gap--rotate the magnets under the module poles, insert the card between the poles and magnets, loosen the module screws and allow the module to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws and rotate the wheel to remove the card. Rotate the wheel one turn and make sure the gap doesn't close up at any point. The spark plug gap is 0.020". Having to keep the choke closed to make it run implies that the main jet in the carburetor is plugged or if adjustable, the setting is too lean. Make sure the air cleaner is not plugged. Turn the jet screw CW to stop (lightly), then back out 1-1/2 turns CCW. If this helps, you may turn it either way until the engine runs smoothly without any choking required after warm-up. It it gets better, but still not running correctly, you may have to disassemble the carburetor and clean it with spray carburetor cleaner. Hope some of this helps!

with the bike being new you wouldn't think it's the spark plugs, but you must remember that those are the first plugs that motor has had in it. the plugs are always supposed to be changed at the first service. try changing them and see what happens.

Bike only starts with choke on and wont idle .by the way its a ktm 250 xc 2006.air filter is clean and has new plug . wondering about needle adjustments?


If your bike ran good previously - and nothing has been changed that would require rejetting or a needle adjustment, I would look for problems elsewhere. Such as:
Has the bike been stored for more than a few months at a time? If so, the carburetor jets could be plugged with fuel varnish. Only being able to start with the choke applied - and an inability to idle are both classic symptoms of this. Remove and disassemble the carburetor. Clean it and the jets out with carb cleaner and compressed air, then reassemble. Also make sure the fuel in the tank is fresh and that the fuel strainer (usually with the fuel petcock) is clean.
There are three ingredients required for combustion: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time). So long as you've got each of these - it has got to run.

2001 V star 650.. Bogs out then corrects itself


If the bike runs better with the choke on a quarter or more of it's range when you're riding it can mean that your motorcycle's engine isn't getting enough fuel into the engine to run normally. Meaning you are running too little fuel into the engine. This can show up as a dead white spark plug with glassy bubble deposits around the electrode.

Possible reasons for this condition;
a. The fuel filter.
b. Most likely the motorcycle hasn't been run enough, this allows the fuel to evaporate in the carburetor and plug the jets that regulate the fuel/air mixture.

Will crank but won't fire


To run, the engine needs fuel/air mix, compression, and a spark. See if you can narrow your problem down to one of these. Remove the plug, then connect the plug wire and set (or carefully hold) the base of the plug against the cylinder head. Crank the engine and see if there is a spark. If not, the problem is in the ignition system.
If you see a spark, replace the spark plug. Remove the air filter and pour about a tablespoon of gasoline down the carburetor throat. Crank the engine, being careful to stay away from the carburetor in case it backfires. If the engine fires and runs, then it probably is not getting gas (fuel system problem), or not getting enough gas (carburetor or choke problem).
Compression problems are less common, unless the engine has been abused somehow. You can check for compression with a compression gage. Remove the spark plug, install the compression gage in the spark plug hole, then crank the engine with the throttle open and the choke off. If you get at least 60 or 70 psi when you do this test, the compression is probably not the problem.
