I just bought my 98 TL1000R, not the S I repeat not the S, the other day. The seller said she was running when parked a year ago. All she needed was new fluids and a battery and she would be ready to go. I have given her a name of patrisha or Trish. In honor of someone close to me since they are both being major bitches and will most likely be the death of me. So....I went out about 10am and bought new fluids. Oil, oil filter, antifreeze, brake fluid and I took a battery out of my other bike that is an 01 ZX1100. So I figure that battery starts that big ass bike then it should have no issue starting this big ass bike. I took all day replacing fluids, bleeding clutch and brake lines. Went ahead and did them all for safe measure. Installed battery and pulled her out for her initial start up and expected take off. Checked to make sure the lights lit up and all was well. Put gas in and found out very quickly that the gasket around the fuel pump was no good but the fuel pump was good seeing as how I could hear it turn on and when I went to take the tank off it sprayed gas all over the place from the pressurized line. So it all works but I am getting no fuel the plugs, I assume its dirty injectors. Also she was stored for that year with no fluids. None at all. But my main concern is that I am getting no spark and I am getting no Fi code at all. I checked to see if that was working and unhooked the tip over sensor and turned her on and the Fi light flashed. I put her into dealer mode and it gave me the proper Fi code read out so that leads me to believe that the ECM is good to. All the lights turn on, she turns over no problem. Is there anything about these bikes that is a usual issue. I did this on the Kawasaki website and it saved me about 3 days worth of tracking down issues just reading responses. If there are any known issues, problems, or just things that are a pain in the ass. I'm used to dealing with those. Please comment and let me know. Hopefully this will help me and others to narrow searches long before we have to start pulling out nose hair because we have no actual hair left to pull out. Lol thanks all.
