1-2 GENERAL INFORMATION Before Servicing Before starting to perform an inspection service or carry out a disassembly and reassembly opera- tion on a motorcycle, read the precautions given below. To facilitate actual operations, notes, illustra- tions, photographs, cautions, and detailed descriptions have been included in each chapter wherever necessary.
Replacement Parts Replacement parts must be KAWASAKI genuine or recommended by KAWASAKI. Gaskets, O-rings, oil seals, grease seals, circlips, cotter pins or self-locking nuts must be replaced with new ones whenever disassembled.
1-4 GENERAL INFORMATION Before Servicing Tightening Sequence Generally, when installing a part with several bolts, nuts, or screws, start them all in their holes and tighten them to a snug fit. Then tighten them according to the specified se- quence to prevent case warpage or deformation which can lead to malfunction.
GENERAL INFORMATION 1-5 Before Servicing Press For items such as bearings or oil seals that must be pressed into place, apply small amount of oil to the con- tact area. Be sure to maintain proper alignment and use smooth movements when installing. Ball Bearing and Needle Bearing Do not remove pressed ball or needle unless removal is absolutely necessary.
1-6 GENERAL INFORMATION Before Servicing Lubrication It is important to lubricate rotating or sliding parts during assembly to minimize wear during initial operation. Lubri- cation points are called out throughout this manual, apply the specific oil or grease as specified. Direction of Engine Rotation When rotating the crankshaft by hand, the free play amount of rotating direction will affect the adjustment.

1-14 GENERAL INFORMATION Technical Information-Sport-Kawasaki TRaction Control System (S-KTRC) Overview S-KTRC is a highly sophisticated system based on MotoGP racing technology. Unlike the KTRC system used on the GTR1400 ABS (Concours 14 ABS in N. America), which is designed to offer rider reassurance when traversing slippery surfaces, S-KTRC, is designed to maximize forward motion, allowing riding at the edge of traction.
The wheel rotation sensor converts front and rear wheel rotation speed to a pulse signal and transmits it to the FI ECU. As for the KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake Sys- tem) equipped model, a pulse signal is transmitted via the KIBS ECU.
1-16 GENERAL INFORMATION Technical Information-Sport-Kawasaki TRaction Control System (S-KTRC) 6. Multifunction Meter The multifunction meter receives a mode-switching signal and displays the mode [A], and transmits it to the FI ECU by the CAN system. When a failure occurs in the system, the multifunction me- ter displays the warning indication by blinking the warning indicator light (yellow LED) [B] and mode indicator symbol.
GENERAL INFORMATION 1-17 Technical Information-Power Mode The rider can choose from three engine power modes to suit their preferences and road conditions. The FI ECU controls the engine power by adjusting fuel injection, air intake, and ignition timing. It enables three-mode selection: Full Power (Mode F), Middle Power (Mode M), and Low Power (Mode In addition, combining each mode with each S-KTRC setting allows the rider to have more choices to be able to interact with various conditions.
1-18 GENERAL INFORMATION Technical Information-Power Mode Mode F: The highest engine power output is achieved. The rider can use the full power of the engine. Mode M: The throttle response is less sharp compared to mode F. Depending on the throttle application, full power can be accessed temporarily.
(KIBS/ZX1000K model only) Overview Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) offers enhanced braking stability (ABS perfor- mance equivalent to the current model) to supersport models, which pitch more than most motorcycles and also offers high-precision front and rear brake pressure control (high-precision ABS) for sport rid- ing.
1-20 GENERAL INFORMATION Technical Information-Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS/ZX1000K model only) 3. KIBS Hydraulic Unit The KIBS hydraulic unit consists of the hydraulic unit and KIBS ECU and has the front caliper hydraulic pressure sen- sor built-in. When receiving a signal from the KIBS ECU, the hydraulic unit increases or decreases the front and rear brake hy- draulic pressure.
GENERAL INFORMATION 1-21 Technical Information-Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS/ZX1000K model only) KIBS Control 1. ABS performance equivalent to the current model (enhanced braking stability) By monitoring front caliper hydraulic pressure, KIBS regulates pressure increases reducing the ten- dency of the rear to lift. Before the ABS system fully reacts, KIBS system prevents the pressure from increasing too quickly thus suppressing rear lift.
1-22 GENERAL INFORMATION Technical Information-Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS/ZX1000K model only) 3. Rear brake control enhancement during engine braking By recognizing rear wheel slip due to engine brake force during aggressive throttle operation, and at high rpm or downshifting, the KIBS system prevents unnecessary ABS intervention to the rear wheel...
1) Overview This model has an Electronic Steering Damper (ESD) [A]. Unlike conventional manual adjustment method of Kawasaki, damping characteristics are adjusted by the electronic control unit. 2) Purpose Designed to offer increased stability at high speed without interfering with light and nimble steering at low speed.
