MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
If hard water is used in the sys-
tem, it causes scale accumula-
tion in the water passages, and
considerably reduces the effi-
ciency of the cooling system.
A permanent type of antifreeze is in-
stalled in the cooling system when
shipped. It is mixed at 50% and has
the freezing point of –35°C (–31°F).
Cleaning and replacement of the air
cleaner element should be done by an
authorized Kawasaki dealer.
Operating the motorcycle without
the air cleaner element can dam-
age the supercharger, which can
lead to serious engine damage
that may cause an accident re-
sulting in serious injury or death.
Do not use the motorcycle with-
out the air cleaner element.
Inspect the transparent drain plug lo-
cated to the left of the engine to see
if any oil has run down.
