MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
A clogged air cleaner restricts the
engine's air intake, increasing fuel con-
sumption, reducing engine power, and
causing spark plug fouling.
This motorcycle's air cleaner element
consists of a wet paper filter, which
cannot be cleaned.
The air cleaner element must be re-
placed in accordance with the Periodic
Maintenance Chart. In dusty, rainy, or
muddy conditions, the air cleaner ele-
ment should be serviced more fre-
Use only the recommended air
cleaner element (Kawasaki part
number 11013-0041). Using the
other air cleaner elements will
wear the engine prematurely or
lower the engine performance.
