I Ride: 2000 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R
2000 Kawasaki ZX6R Running issues
I recently bought a 2000 ZX6R and am currently restoring it. A project in itself, however I need your help.
Issue 1: The choke lever that should be on the handle bar, next to the horn and light switch is missing the slider deal for the choke is it wiser to replace the whole assembly or just the slider?
Issue 2: The choke is running on full currently so I only start the bike for a couple min, than shut her down so I don't do damage. However today she was having running issues, wouldn't start, just sputter, maybe run for three seconds and die. Why would this be?
Issue 3: After taking her apart the spark plugs were gapped at .032 and the manual says between .07-.08 is this true? They are NGK spark plugs.
Issue 4: A little white smoke came out after like 15 seconds disappeared and she smells really rich how can I fix this?
Note: Also after re-assembly she shot a couple of flames should I be worried?
