help
« on: August 25, 2017, 09:19:36 pm »
my 94 kawasaki zg1000 key ignition is giving many problems after going up in fire. I lost all of my front cowling and side engine panels. i have opted out of getting used crowing since its simply just too costly. With many thanks to my neighbor who has purchased the used parts (in trade for repairing his car) great trade. But my ignition is blowing fuses left and right and Im hoping someone may have an old one but equivalent that i can have and use. i did check all the wiring harness and took care of all frail wires one at a time. So if anyone can assist my deepest gratitude is greatly extended. email me if further information is needed and I dont care if its a different key see bike damage and process on my facebook

A post called "Help" is pretty vague...
Anyways , this should be in the "parts emporium section"...
There are people there with parts for sale.... and I'm sure you can find what you need...
Talk to this guy...

Meanwhile, this may be moved there, so don't double post....please,

Pete, I really hate to have to say this, because I love these old bikes as much as anyone here, but...  it's time to let that ol' girl go.  It's already caught on fire once, and now you're experiencing blown fuses and electrical problems.  This thing sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.  Again.

How, ah, how did it catch on fire, anyway?

I've saved bikes from scrap that had far more fire damage... but...

! No longer available


When you can't work and have no income is a good time to learn diagnostic troubleshooting... not throw random parts at it.

Start with a simple and no-cost inspection of the wiring harness. You are likely to turn up some melted wires.
