Kawasaki Lakota spark issue

Recommended Posts

Well, I received stator, pick and new key switch asembly. I have great spark. Thanks to all whom responded.

NOW it Starts up with hesitation. Idles good , give a little gas it boggs down, back fires & dies instantly. Will start up after it back fires

DID I MESS WITH TIMING

Brand New Carb.. when I took off cover to replace stator,pick up & gasket.

Would I have messed with timing..? 

I'm not familiar with the timing part..?

It sounds like its running lean....what kind of carb you have? Air/Mixture screw and your idle screw,but you say it idles good,try the Air/Mixture one,but you have to warm up the engine and close it all the way, not to tight,you don't want to damage or brake it,slightly snugged,then turn it counterclockwise about 3/4 or 1  1 /4  turn then wait about one minute listen to the engine,you might have to play with that for a little until you get the adjustment you need...

It only back fires now, won't run..😩

Makes one hell of a boom..

Went to try to start to warm up,

Just a recap..

1st time I started it. I let it idle long enough to install front rack, rear fender & rack., while installing items I gave a little gas and it would still bog down . jumped on and went 50 ft before it just died. Try to start it and it back fires

Will fuel will cause a huge back fire..?

Ugh amazon carb.  No good. Replacement carbs should be oem! If you still have the oem carb then spend the money on a rebuild kit and rebuild it.   It’s not difficult and we will help you along.   If the stator and pick up coil were put in right which I’m  sure you did and no you can’t screw up the timing by doing what you did then my suspicions are the carb is the problem here.

Amazon has it and prob better off on eBay.   Look for the oem label when buying.   It’s worth it. You will rebuild the carb and set it up the bike will run great.  Just take a look on YouTube on rebuilding if your not familiar with the work and take your time. Clean work area.  I like to use a cheap white pillow case when doing a carburetor. Makes easy work when dealing with small parts on a white surface as well as seeing what comes out of the carb dirt wise .  Any questions you have we will help.  Post pics when your not sure and you will get pointed in the right direction.

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      1997 Yamaha 350 Warrior, should there be oil in the stator area? Have a no spark situation.

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      So i have an old yamaha bear tracker that was given to me from an old farmer I know. I decided to refurbished it and fix all the quick fixes on it. I am pretty sure that it is either a 1999 or 2000 based upon the original wiring harness. Little did i know when I bought a new to me wiring harness from ebay that it was from a 2003 or 2004. My question to everyone is do I need to have all the stop switch assemblies hooked up? I think there are three on the 03/04 models and only one on the 1999 to 2000. Any help I can get for this would be great. I haven't run it yet due to the motor and crankcase is in two totes.
