EMISSION CONTROL
INFORMATION
To protect the environment in which we all live, Kawasaki has incorporated two
emission control systems in compliance with the applicable regulations of the United
States Environmental Protection Agency.
1.
Crankcase Emission Control System
This system eliminates the release of crankcase vapors
into
the atmosphere. Instead,
~
the
vapors
are routed through an oil separator to the intake side of the engine.
While
the engine is operating, the vapors are drawn
into
the combustion chamber,
where
they
are burned along
with
the
fuel
and air supplied by the carburetors.
2.
Exhaust Emission Control System
This system reduces the amount of
pollutants
discharged into the atmosphere by
the exhaust of this motorcycle.
The
fuel
and
ignition
systems of this motorcycle
have
been carefully designed and constructed to ensure an efficient engine
with low
exhaust
pollutant levels.
The Clean Air Act, which is
the
Federal law covering motor
vehicle
pollution, contains
what
is
commonly
referred
to as the Act's
utampering
provisions".
"Sec. 203(a) The following acts and the causing thereof are prohibited ...
(3) (A) for any person
to remove
or render inoperative any device or element of
design installed on or in a motor vehicle or motor
vehicle
engine in
com-
pliance with regulations under this title
prior
to
its
sale and delivery to
the
ultimate purchaser, or for any
manufacturer
or
dealer
knowingly to remove
or render inoperative any such device or element of design after such sale
and delivery to the ultimate purchaser.
(3)(8) for any person engaged in the business of repairing, servicing, selling, leasing,
or trading motor
vehicles
or motor vehicle engines, or
who
operates a fleet
of motor vehicles knowingly to remove or render inoperative any device or
element of design installed on or
in
a motor vehicle or
motor
vehicle engine
in compliance
with regu
lations
under
this title following its sale and delivery
to the ultimate purchaser
...
"
Note:
The
phrase "remove or render inoperative any device or element of design" has
been generally interpreted as follows:
1. Jampering does not include the temporary
removal
or rendering inoperative of
devices or elements of design in order
to
perform maintenance.
