zx7-r running issues

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by HsvNinja, Aug 20, 2011.

  1. hey guys ... im having some issues with my zx7r running.

    It will idle fine but once i start riding it, it will eventually start to cut out and splurge and come to a stop. It wont restart again unless i jump start it after that. Then will run again but will cut out the same way again.

    If its idling i can turn it off and restart it again fine. I sprayed the carbies with carby cleaner and changed the plugs and cleaned the air filter. Still is doing the same thing ...
    Any ideas of what it could be?

    would it be worth changing the fuel filter?

    I did run out of fuel before all this started to happen also.

    sorry bit of a noob with carbies and bikes
  2. For the few dollars for the cost of a fuel filter, and the extra time it would have taken, it would have been beneficial to have changed it when you had changed the plugs and cleaned the air filter, when the bike was apart....
