Hello, Please Help!

Hello Guys, I'm having issues starting up my 07 zx6r.

I have provided a video of the issue. If anyone out there that can help me with this I really appreciate it.



Thanks,

RZ

Hello RZ.. Welcome to the forum.

Pull the seat, check the voltages. Sure sounds like your battery has had it.
Once it a while you get lucky and it's a bad connection, normally the negitive to frame.

SO check voltage before hitting the starter button AND what it goes to when the button is hit.
My guess would be 12v +/- 0.4 then less than 11 volts with the starter button.


OH, take some time and say HI in the new members section.
Nice to hear about past rides and how long you have had the Ninja.

Hi Indy,

How do I go about checking the voltage?

It started up fine with no issues a week ago.

I just replaced the rear tire a couple days ago and now this issue.


Thanks

Sounds like the battery is dead.

Digital volt meter. You can get a cheap one.
Put one wire, red on the + and the black one on the -. OH, the dial on V, or voltage. If it has only flat line and wavy (doesn't say ac or dc) then it's the flat line.

To check the ground connection to the frame. The red wire on the + the black wire on the frame.
Voltage should be the same as across the battery.

If not then the connection from the negative battery connection to the frame is corroded.

Hello Guys,

here is an update on the bike starting issue.

I went to Advanced Auto to get the battery recharged.

The dash loads properly now, but when push start the bike doesn't want to start.

Guys, what could the issue be at this point?

Hard to say, you are going to have to start with the basics......does it have gas? does it smell like unburnt fuel at the exhaust pipe?(meaning you could have a no spark issue). You could pull a plug and see if you have spark. The battery sounds like it is spinning the motor fast enough.

If you just had the battery charged and you're getting lights on the dash:

Check your kill switch on the right grip is set to run.
Check your bike is in Neutral.

IF it starts in Neutral, check to see if it starts with the clutch pulled in and in gear. If not, bad clutch switch

Never ride faster than you can stop

Mine does not power the starter motor if the kill switch is pressed, or neutral/clutch isn't engaged.So, it is something else.

Fuel, or spark.Take a plug out and check to see if it is wet with gas, and if you have spark.

Sorry, couldn't see the videos. I was going off the general checklist.

Yeah, if it's cranking, it's fuel or spark missing, not any of the cutoff switches.

I have plenty fuel in the tank. So it maybe the spark plugs.

Here's what I've done before. Someone stop me if not a good idea.

Pull one of the plugs. Plug it back into the cable and hold it against the block. Press starter real quick and see if you have spark.

Also, is the spark plug wet? If not, you may not be getting gas. Could be fuel pump? Might check ALL fuses (I don't have my manual handy at the moment).

I noticed it started up fine before I added STA-BIL fuel stabilizer to the tank. Do you guys think that may have caused the issue?
