My stator cover should be here Monday, and the rest of my parts Wednesday. Too bad it's finals week, probably won't get to touch the bike until the end of the week. But I have made a little progress New guy from Utah-imageuploadedbymo-free1354986048.518355.jpgNew guy from Utah-imageuploadedbymo-free1354986060.394344.jpg

Well got the motorcycle running today, sounds so mean! I have something weird going on with the fuel pump. I can get the bike running when I put gas directly in the carbs, but it doesn't seem to be getting gas right from the tank. If I pull the hose of the fuel pump it does pump gas through, but the bike doesn't run still.
Going to clean out the carbs tomorrow and see if that fixes it.

I'm sure if it sat for 3 years the carbs are going to need some tlc. Looks good so far though

Thanks guys well I got the bike running and decided to take it out on the road for a bit and see what's going on with it. Had some weird stuff happen, been sitting for much too long. When the last guy laid it over the kick stand (well the one that lifts the wheel of the ground) must've gotten bent because its rubbing on the chain, my second gear might be shot, and my carbs desperately need cleaned because it wouldn't run without leaving the choke partially on. But it's good to know what needs done now, I'm going to temporarily take off the stand and clean out the carbs and give it another shot just to see what all is going on. Hey so I have an old Corvair running 2 carbs and they have to be synced to make sure I'm getting the same airflow on both carbs, do I need to do this with the 4 carb setup on my ninja? If so could I just use the same airflow tester I use on my Corvair?

Got all that figured out, 2nd gear is gone, gotta start tearing down to replace it. New guy from Utah-imageuploadedbymo-free1355703716.068277.jpg

Ok so I pulled it apart, and none of the gears look worn. I'm thinking shift forks maybe? Any ideas why my second gear would grind but the bike would still go into all the other gears without problems? New guy from Utah-imageuploadedbymo-free1355712763.997174.jpg
Here's the only gear I would really be worried about but I think that's 6th not 2nd New guy from Utah-imageuploadedbymo-free1355712800.004754.jpg

Carbs need to be synchronised.

The stand that lifts the rear wheel off the ground is the centre stand. The stand that the bike leans over on is the side stand or kick stand.

Most Kawasakis have a positive neutral finder that prevents 2nd gear from engaging if the bike isn't stationary. That might be causing your 2nd gear issues. With the box stripped you should be able to spin the shafts and operate the shift mechanism and see what's going on.
