then back to "ON" for a few seconds

HOW TO RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE
Stopping the Motorcycle in an
Your Kawasaki Motorcycle has been
designed and manufactured to provide
you optimum safety and convenience.
However, in order to fully benefit from
Kawasaki's safety engineering and
craftsmanship, it is essential that you,
the owner and operator, properly main-
tain your motorcycle and become thor-
oughly familiar with its operation.
Improper maintenance can create a
dangerous situation known as throttle
failure. Two of the most common
causes of throttle failure are:
1. An improperly serviced or clogged
air cleaner may allow dirt and dust
to enter the throttle body and stick
the throttle open.
2. During removal of the air cleaner,
dirt is allowed to enter and jam the
fuel injection system.
