Balance Weight Installation
Balance Weight
•Inflate the
tire
to standard pressure (Pg.
140).
•Mount the wheel on the motorcycle (Pg. 89 or 97).
NOTES: 1.
Balance weights are available from Kawasaki
Dealers in 10, 20, and 30 gram sizes. An imbalance
of less than 10 grams will not usually affect
running
stability.
2. When removing a tire from a
rim,
mark
the
valve
stem
location on the
tire
so that
it
can be replaced
in
the
same position
.
.
3. When
installing
a
new
tire,
be
sure
to
go through
the balancing procedure.
4.
If a new tire is installed, the yellow paint mark on
the tire should be aligned with the
valve
stem for
best balancing
results.
HEADLIGHT
The headlight beam is adjustable vertically.
If
ad·
justed too low, neither low nor high beam will
illu·
minate the road far enough ahead.
If
adjusted too high,
the
high
beam will fail to illuminate the road close
ahead,
and the
low
beam will dazzle oncoming
driver.
Vertical Adjustment
•Check
that
the headlight is aimed straight ahead, with
the brightest spot slightly below horizontal on high
beam.

HORN
The horn
contacts
wear down after
long use
and may
need to be adjusted from time to
time. Turning
in the
adjusting screw compensates for contact wear. If satis-
factory horn performance
cannot be obtained by this
adjustment when the
rest
of the electrical system is
functioning
properly,
the horn must be
replaced.
It
cannot be disassembled.
