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

Was everything installed correctly ? Pick up coil?  Double check the timing and lastly is the carburetor all good ? Maybe a flooding issue ?

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.

I still have original carb  that came on it when I bought it. Could I get rebuild off amazon or somewhere else.?

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.

      Hi guys I have a 2003 Arctic 250 4X4 it starts idles and runs great for about 10 min. then it spits and sputters and dies but it starts right up like nothing happened idles good till you give gas and it does it again let off the gas and it's idling great again this goes on for about 15 to 20 min. and then it takes off runs good all day like nothing was wrong.
      I cleaned the carburetor it looked like a new one inside found a little gunk in one orifice, new air filter no crimped lines air line to tank good I did put a meter on the battery idling it said 16.5 V that's high I think would a voltage regulator cause this?
      Suzuki shop wanted to sale me a stator for $556.00 but said it could be something else also thought I'd see what you guys say about it
      Thanks

      I recently got a 98 warrior 350 that 'needed the carb adjusted' but the reality is it has no spark. I have a new spark plug, plug wire, ignition coil, battery, and cdi box. I checked continuity and took apart and inspected the starter/kill/light switch on the handle bar, and it all looks brand new and checked out. The key switch seems to be working properly, as when off, nothing works, but when switched on, lights and electric starter button work. It turns over fine, and as I just stated, all the lights work. I took all the plastics off and traced all the wires, and only one had a small cut in it, but it was only through the rubber sheathing, not the wire itself (the blue one coming from the stator). I cleaned some grounds, made sure both relays work, and still nothing. I pulled the stator cover and looked at the stator itself, and it looks great. No broken wires or connectors or anything. Still, no spark. I'm at a loss. Where do I go next? Any help is appreciated.

      I have a 1996 Kawasaki Mojave KSF250. I have no manual on it and it has a no spark issue. If anyone could give me a hand with this or would possibly have a manual would appreciate it.

      On one of the atv I recently purchased the neutral switch is bad, Any one ever replaced one.
      looking for some pics. I assume I need to remove the drive shaft to pull the cover foward
      to clear the gear shift shaft. Any easy ways to do this. So far have motor moved forward 
      all bolts out except nuts on drive shaft which are loose Thanks Az
