    Unhappy damsel in distress with a 900zxi

    A few weeks ago managed to turn it over and then turned it back the wrong way since then it struggles to start will run but rather sluggish and after an hour it gives up
    If i start it and give it loads of throttle it dies so it takes a while to get it going
    being female ive undone the carb and its spotless
    but ive no idea after that so anyone able to help a damsel in distress
    please make it easy an step by step
    thanks guys

    Rear crank seal ??? where ? how ? took out today someone suggested fuel down the pistons and then spin it out to remove any water still in the engine which was done for me and seamed to do the trick !

    Ran good for couple of hours then started to intermitantly not produce any power when reved so decided to check plugs all dry good colour gave it 30-40 mins but no change as your going along at a set speed engine will rev at 6000 rpm then drop to 3000 then back up to 6000 have read somewhere what causes this but cant remember ???

    also when got home removed plugs they were wet ?? could this be cause by not tightening up enough ( were wrench tight but not super tight) thanks for your posts guys keep em coming !
