A clogged air cleaner restricts the en-
gine'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 can-
not 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 el-
ement should be serviced more fre-
quently than the recommended inter-
MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
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.
