I have a 2003 ZX-7R that I am rebuilding. I bought this beauty from a customer who had not rode the bike in about 2 years.
I have rebuilt the carbs, new everything, everything metal is clean and free of carbon build up. Took the head off and cleaned out the build up from around the chain as well as the valves.
I took the bike to a local Kawasaki mechanic, as I am a multiple ASE Certification, I know they mean nothing lol, holding mechanic. I have the tools but not the in depth knowledge of a motorcycle expert. I was given a list of things they suggested, $2,700 worth of carb work and electrics.
So here is the issue. The bike wants to kick over, there is plenty of gas, new good starter solenoid. When starting it today, I noticed that when I hit the kill switch, the bike continued to attempt to start. I feel this is the kill switch internals and it should be changed.
The bigger issue, is that when attempting to start the bike, after a few cranks, the left air outlet from the carb will start puking fuel. I have no Idea why.
As always I am sorry if this question has been asked and answered, if so please feel free to tell me I'm dumb and point me in the right direction.
Thank you for reading,
