    07 Kawasaki 4 stroke - Electrical Short

    Trying to find the short in my friends 2007 Kawasaki 4 stroke. He had someone come by to work on it and they haven't been back (took the money and ran).

    So the battery has a good charge. I changed the 20A fuse (was blown when I first looked at it). Turn the switch to on. Let the gauges all come to life. Push the start button and everything goes dark. It sounds like the the starter solonoid clicks but the starter doesn't turn before there is no more juice.

    Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks much.

    Battery may show good charge (12.5 or??) but may not have amps to turn. Could also be bad ground. Clean your posts/connections up real good. Clean ground up where it connects to block. Get a fresh battery or one you are certain is good and try.
    Let us know.

    Check out things listed above. Most the time it is ground or bad battery. Just because bat. has voltage doesn't mean it wont dump it under load. (cranking/amps)

    Sounds like bad battery or solenoid. Also as mentioned make sure everything is tight and corrosion free

    All I can get to is tight and no corrosion. Load tested the battery and it checks out fine. Guess I need to get a solenoid and try that out.
