(b) When the tire is on the rim.
Pry [A] the balance weight off the rim flange using a stan-
dard screwdriver as shown in the figure.
Insert a tip of the screwdriver between the tire bead [B]
and weight blade [C] until the end of the tip reaches the
end of the weight blade.
Push the driver grip toward the tire so that the balance
weight slips off the rim flange.
Discard the used balance weight.
Balance Weight Installation
Check if the weight portion has any play on the blade [A]
and clip [B].
If it does, discard it.
Unbalanced wheels can create an unsafe riding
condition. If the balance weight has any play on
the rib of the rim, the blade and/or clip have been
stretched. Replace the loose balance weight. Do
not reuse used balance weight.
Balance weights are available from Kawasaki dealers in
10, 20, and 30 grams (0.35, 0.71, and 1.06 oz.) sizes.
An imbalance of less than 10 grams (0.35 oz.) will not
usually affect running stability.
Do not use four or more balance weight (more than 90
gram, 3.17 oz.). If the wheel requires an excess bal-
ance weight, disassemble the wheel to find the cause.
Slip the balance weight [A] onto the rib [B] by pushing or
lightly hammering [C] the clip [D].
