Hello everyone, I bought a 2006 Kawazaki ZZR-250 with only 1000 kms on it, last month. The bike always started first time with no problem, without even needing the choke on (the bike has been stored for years then well maintained by the previous owner) . All the problems started to appear about 2 weeks from now after, I think, my first refuel (premium unleaded gas till the top). First thing I've noticed: when I come back from a ride (hot bike) and park it inside the garage, soon, the whole room start to smell "fuel", thing I never noticed before. The same fuel smell noticeable when the bike is cold and stored under its cover. Secondly and most importantly, from about that time, the bike would not start directly anymore. On the contrary, when I would push the start button I can hear clicks. The bike will eventually start after 10/20 tries of 2-3 seconds push and once started will not die only with the help of the choke (while it wasn't needed before in this Sydney mild weather). Once the bike is started and engine lukewarm, I have no more trouble to stop, start the bike and idling… I uploaded a video of my try and the clicking sound on Youtube Few facts : - The bike has now 1400 kms, the 1000 kms service has been done end of May 2013 - The carb jets have been cleaned at the same time according to the paperwork - The battery is less than 18 months old according to the paperwork - Everything used to work very well before my first stop at the gas station - The more I let the bike stopped, the most it is difficult to start again - Since two weeks it is getting harder and harder to get the bike running (need more tries pushing on the starter button) - lights don't dim when pushing the start button, dashboard needles don't move - revs are stable and runs just fine when started - no fuel leak marks on the floor after parking but big fuel smell - I will try to definitely rule out the battery with a multi-meter later this week Any help, leads, similar experience would be very helpful Cheers!
