EMISSION CONTROL INFORMATION
To protect the environment
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
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".

Note: The phrase "remove or render inoperative any device or element of design" has
been generally interpreted as follows:

devices or elements of design in order to perform maintenance.
