I Ride: 2003 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R 636
The #1 thing I hate about threads like these is that usually the person with the issue NEVER reports back & shares what actually fixed the problem. I refuse to be 'that guy'

So for anyone having the same issue, the thing that fixed it for me was the starter! I pulled my old starter, out of curiosity, I took it apart & what I found inside was disgusting. It was like burnt grease if that makes any sense. All the copper wiring was shredded up & it smelled like death. I called the Kawasaki dealer & they quoted me $400 for a new starter. I lol'd & hung up. Jumped on over to good 'ol eBay & found a working starter used for $70. Bought it, installed it. Bike started right up! In fact, the bike started quicker & stronger than ever before!

So it now has a new battery & a lower milage starter. Time to hit the road before big bad winter sweeps through PA & ends my first riding season :'(
