Hi people, Im new to this site & I just purchesed a 1996 zx1100 Ninja which has developed a problem. I purched this bike (as is), It was drove aprox 3 1/2hours to my home (on highway) , bike worked great. I stoped twice , on the trip, each time bike was shut off, and re started with no problems. worked great! After geting home, the bike was left for overnight , the next morning when i tried to start the bike is when the trouble started. I turned on the choke, the bike fired up right away. I shut off the choke while waiting for the engine to warm up, maybe 15-25 sec. or so . I pulled out of my drive way bike ran fine. I pulled up to the first stop sign and the bike started sputtering,no power, I had to keep reving the engine to keep it from shuting off. (all the time it sounded like dead on a plug?) When I got the bike up to 30-40km the sputtering stoped & the bike had normal power. However, when I came to the next stop sign, again the bike sputtered and this time shut off. When this happens there is a strong smell of gas! However I do not see any gas running out of the bike/carbs. Another weird thing, when this happens if i shut off the fuel petcock to (off) after a few sec. the bike runs perfect (untill the line runs out of fuel) but turn the fuel back on to (on) or (res) and the bike starts sputtering again?? Like I said each time this happens I smell strong gas but I dont see any apilling out! Guys I sure would like some help on this one if any body has seen of this or knows whats going on, Thanks, Im dying to get back riding!!!!!!!!!!!!
