How to bring dead Kawasaki motorcycle in life?

Today's blog post is going to be about figuring out the ignition problem with 2004 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R 636.  As usual we will go through several motorcycle parts and locate this issue in one of them.

First thing every motorcyclist would think of is charging the battery. After changing the battery if the motorcycle is still unresponsive the next thing to do is changing it with new one and check if and the cables are tightly connected to the power. If the motorcycle is still dead I would say good thought would be to check the battery.  If it’s okay then we should pass on the next motorcycle part.

Second thing on the motorcycle parts list for checking is starter relay. The motorcycle’s main fuse is on the starter relay. It’s located on the left side when sitting on the motorcycle just under the front left side of the seat. There should be a 30 amp fuse. Once the power gets throughout the main fuse on the relay - it goes to the other fuse box near the rear of the motorcycle under the seat. This fuse box has the ECU main fuse in it.

Third motorcycle part for checking (if all the fuses are okay) would be the relays on the left rear under the seat also.

Fourth motorcycle part for checking would be the ignition switch.

Also the ground circuit is important. Check the battery ground cable connections to the battery and to the frame.

If you or your friends have a Honda you can also read previous blog post about Honda motorcycle parts that affect the ignition system.

If you are fan of Kawasaki Street bikes or you would like to purchase new one, here are thoughts on some enhanced comfort and safety elements of our new gorgeous Concours 14 Kawasaki Street bike:

  • Reflectors are reshaped and they are 40mm higher than the previous Concour 14 model   hence provides better back view.
  • Windshield is 70mm taller and wider therefore provides better wind protection than the previous version.  Also has new operating system as well, still electronic, but it has new memory feature that remembers the last position of your windscreen last time youve turned off.
  • The glove box is moved to the left hand side unlike in the previous model when it was on the top of the tank
  • Grip warm up feature - the rider can choose between different levels of warming the grip in colder weather riding
  • KTRC button  Kawasaki traction control button that works with wheel rotation sensors used to detect differences in front and rear wheel speed (ABS version only)
  • New exceptionally safe braking system where the last year new voyager technology is incorporated
  • New safety system  Your new Kawasaki Street Bike will be safe if you leave the key on the motorcycle and take only the transponder with you

Now you have read about Concours 14 enhancements and if you are financially equipped you can buy one for around $14.500. For those with old Concours, you can always replace old motorcycle parts with new ones.
