This manual is designed primarily for use by
trained mechanics in a properly equipped shop.
However, it contains enough detail and basic in-
formation to make it useful to the owner who de-
sires to perform his own basic maintenance and
repair work. A basic knowledge of mechanics,
the proper use of tools, and workshop proce-
dures must be understood in order to carry out
maintenance and repair satisfactorily. When-
ever the owner has insufficient experience or
doubts his ability to do the work, all adjust-
ments, maintenance, and repair should be car-
ried out only by qualified mechanics.
In order to perform the work efficiently and
to avoid costly mistakes, read the text, thor-
oughly familiarize yourself with the procedures
before starting work, and then do the work care-
fully in a clean area. Whenever special tools or
equipment are specified, do not use makeshift
tools or equipment. Precision measurements
can only be made if the proper instruments are
used, and the use of substitute tools may ad-
versely affect safe operation.
To get the longest life out of your vehicle:
Follow the Periodic Maintenance Chart in the
Service Manual.
Be alert for problems and non-scheduled
maintenance.
Use proper tools and genuine Kawasaki Mo-
torcycle parts. Special tools, gauges, and
testers that are necessary when servicing
Kawasaki motorcycles are introduced by the
Service Manual. Genuine parts provided as
spare parts are listed in the Parts Catalog.
Follow the procedures in this manual care-
fully. Don't take shortcuts.
Remember to keep complete records of main-
tenance and repair with dates and any new
parts installed.

ble of Contents.

tion, use the Quick Reference Guide to locate

Table of Contents on the first page of the chap-
ter to find the Ignition Coil section.

ticular interest for more efficient and con-
