Sulfation occurs when the battery is
left in a discharged condition for an ex-
tended time. Sulfate is a normal by
product of the chemical reactions with-
in a battery. But when continuous dis-
charge allows the sulfate to crystallize
in the cells, the battery plates become
permanently damaged and will not
hold a charge. Battery failure due to
sulfation is not warrantable.
Battery Maintenance
It is the owner's responsibility to keep
the battery fully charged. Failure to do
so can lead to battery failure and leave
you stranded.
If you are riding your vehicle infre-
quently, inspect the battery voltage
weekly using a voltmeter. If it drops be-
low 12.8 volts, the battery should be
charged using an appropriate charger
(check with your Kawasaki dealer). If
you will not be using the motorcycle for
longer than two weeks, the battery
MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
should be charged using an appropri-
ate charger. Do not use an automotive-
type quick charger that may over-
charge the battery and damage it.
NOTE
Leaving
the
causes the electrical components
(clock etc) to make the battery dis-
charged, resulting the over dis-
charge of the battery. In this case,
the repair or replacement of the bat-
tery is not included in the warranty. If
you do not drive for four weeks or
more, disconnect the battery from
the vehicle.
