Check if the weight portion has any play on the blade-and
If it does, discard it.
Unbalanced wheels can create an unsafe riding

the rib of the rim, the blade and/or clip have been

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-

This helps the balance weight slip onto the rim flange.
Do not lubricate the tire bead with engine oil or pe-
troleum distillates because they will deteriorate the
