    When you have an air leak, it runs very lean. Lean means that it's also running hot--hot enough to get the carbon particles inside the combustion chamber to glow. The glowing particles ignite the...

    Yes, it sounds like the driveshaft holder is cracked. Take it out and take a good look at it under light. Flex it and you'll probably see cracks in the rubber.

    You'll have to test the pop-off valves. They should open at about 4-5 PSI.

    That's not a Kawasaki part. Looks like a lead from a remote start switch or something.
