The plug should be close by your front sprocket cover. That's where it's at on the zzr600 and I would think Kawi's are very similiar. You should be able to access it easily I would think.

you rode 45 min. and temp was not a issue... my guess would be the fuel filter.

update: so i rode home, no problems what so ever... i even rode around town a little bit since what happened was when i was going slow and stopping... still nothing... only thing i can think is maybe i had a kink in a gas line and it came loose maybe? because about 2 mins into my ride my gas light came on..( no it wasnt on before my ride home) so i filled up and now here i am.... idk...lol thanks for all the advice tho guys, im still going to check the kickstand wire, gas lines and coolant level as soon as i cool off...

I've heard all kinds of things, kinked gas vent lines, bad injectors, faulty kickstand switch.

If it happens again open the gas cap. If there's the sound of air rushing in check your vent hose.

So it happened again... I filled up, rode about 30 miles stopped and ate, then rode another 40 or so miles and same thing when I slowed into town, bike died and I coasted to the gas station... since last time it ran good after I filled up I went ahead and filed back up, (2 gallons, about half a tank) and them ran good to my girls house... Any ideas y this is happening? Is there something I could have done when I took the tank off?

Is it possible that you have a clog in the fuel filter? How old is it?

Have you ruled out the kickstand switch?
Possibly kinked vent line? You can try running your bike with the gas tank open. Is there a rushing of air when you open the gas tank?

Kinked vent line would explain why you get to half a tank before it dies and why it started back up after you filled up. You said you took the tank off?

I take it that when it stalled again you didn't open the filler cap? The more gas in the tank, the fewer miles the engine will run with poor venting.
