Hey, I'm looking for any help that I can do myself before I take it to a mechanic. I have a 2000 zx9 and it won't start?When I hit the starter button nothing happens just dead. My turn signals work, and I tried jumping or bump starting and nothing worked( but the lights came on)so I don't think it's the battery. My speedo lights up but doesn't reset itself when I turn the key,the trip or clock screen stays blank, and the neutral light doesn't show up. I don't know if it's the starter or ignition switch or something else. My manual says to start with the starter.... Any help ... thanks....

not starting

First check the kill switch , then any breaker/fuses for ignition if possible...?
Since the neutral light doesn't show, maybe the sensor thinks its in gear..?
Do zx9's need the clutch in, if so there's another sensor.....good luck

Some history would help although it still sounds like a weak battery.

When did this problem start? How long ago did the bike run? What changed since it last was started? etc. Tell us everything you can think of.

LMAO... good call, dude...

I didn't even notice how old it was.


Who keeps bringing things back from the dead in THIS, of all sections?
