I have a 2005 ninja Kawasaki zx636, runs good until it heats up then it shuts off until it cools down!! What could be the problem?
I changed all off these things on it!! Still no luck?
New plugs
Radiator
Cleaned k&n filter
Sprocket or whatever it’s called
New battery and heat wrap all around

2005 is the first year with the undertail. Every 05 ecu cooks because kawi didn't fill it with the right heat resistant silicone. Once they're cooked, they're cooked. Happened to mine. If you source an 06 from your local salvage yard, they're plug and play compatible with the 05. It cost me about 400 cad and I never had the issue again. Bought an 06 636 2 years later and never had that issue.

When you get a new one, make sure you put some heat tape underneath the tail, and wrap your exhaust.

Good luck
