Cylinders 2 and 3 are not firing

#1 Unread post by montnut » Sat Apr 23, 2016 8:21 am

I have a 1978 Kawaski KZ 1000 Z1-R I just bought a new battery and tried to start it for the first time this year and found cylinders 2 and 3 are not firing. How do i check to see if the coil is good for those 2? It runs but I need help.

Switch the coils around. If the cylinder fires, it's the coil. If it doesn't it's the carb. What kind of carbs do you have?
