I wonder if your junction box (AKA fuse box) is up to par?
Your fuses are good, what about the circuits they connect to in the junction box?
Pardon my crude drawing.
These are connecter terminals to the junction box. With a multi-meter set to measure ohms you should get the following readings.
The above readings should all be 0.
The readings below should all read infinity.
I went back through the thread and noticed you still haven't said what kind of starter you bought (only that you got a new one).
If you have a genuine factory Kawasaki starter, then the part number needs to look exactly like this one. If you have an "L" in this number, then you have one that runs the wrong direction.
If you have an aftermarket starter, you can remove it to check to see if it is turning the correct direction. Refer to the top pic in post #29. Remove the starter and directly hook wire B to the positive post on a battery, and then touch wire A to the negative post on the battery. When the starter spins it needs to be spinning clockwise. If it is spinning counter-clockwise it will not work.
You will have to hang on to the starter when doing this or it will take off.

Here's a quick video I made explaining PAIR valves, what they do, why you might remove them, and showing the process of making block off plates at home for cheap or free. It's not super detailed on the process of making them, it's really quite a generic and simple task, but if you have any...
Hey all. Here's what's going down. While riding yesterday, I noticed my clutch was not shifting periodically and the pressure in the lever had less range than usual. Once I ended my ride I had trouble putting it in neutral and when it was in 1st while at a stop the bike wanted to slowly move...
