SAFETY INFORMATION
Read Owner's Manual
Read this Owner’s Manual carefully
before riding so that you will be thoroughly familiar with the proper operation of your motorcycle’s controls, its
features, capabilities, and limitations.
This manual offers many safe riding
tips, but its purpose is not to provide instruction in all of the techniques and
skills required to ride a motorcycle
safely.
Training
Kawasaki strongly recommends that
all operators of this vehicle complete a
suitable motorcycle rider training program to learn the proper skills and
techniques necessary for safe motorcycle operation.
Daily Checks and Periodic
Maintenance
It is important to keep your motorcycle properly maintained and in safe
riding condition. Inspect your motorcycle before every ride and carry out
all periodic maintenance. See the Daily
Checks section and the Periodic Maintenance section in the MAINTENANCE
AND ADJUSTMENT chapter for more
information.
Black plate (12,1)
12 SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING
Failure to perform these checks
or to correct a problem before operation may result in serious
damage or an accident. Always
perform daily checks before operation.
To ensure your motorcycle is serviced using the latest servicing information, it is recommended that an
authorized Kawasaki Dealer performs
the periodic maintenance as directed
in the Owner's Manual.
If you notice any irregular operating
condition, have your motorcycle thoroughly checked at an authorized Kawasaki dealer as soon as possible.
Loading and Accessories
Information
WARNING
Incorrect loading, improper installation or use of accessories
or modification of your motorcycle may result in an unsafe riding condition. Before you ride the
motorcycle, make sure it is not
overloaded and that you have followed these instructions.
Maximum Load
Weight of rider, baggage, and accessories
must not exceed 195 kg (430 lb).
With the exception of genuine Kawasaki Parts and Accessories, Kawasaki
has no control over the design or application of accessories. In some cases,
Black plate (13,1)
SAFETY INFORMATION 13
improper installation or use of accessories, or motorcycle modification, will
void the motorcycle warranty; can negatively affect performance, stability and
safety; and can even be illegal.
In selecting and using accessories,
and in loading the motorcycle, you are
personally responsible for your own
safety and the safety of other persons
involved.
○ Kawasaki
NOTE
Parts and Accessories
have been specially designed for
use on Kawasaki motorcycles. We
strongly recommend that all parts
and accessories you add to your motorcycle be genuine Kawasaki components.
Because a motorcycle is sensitive to
changes in weight and aerodynamic
forces, you must take extreme care in
carrying cargo, passengers and/or in
fitting additional accessories. The following general guidelines have been
prepared to assist you in making your
determinations.
Accessories
1. Do not install accessories or carry
baggage that impairs the performance of the motorcycle. Make sure
that you have not adversely affected any lighting components,
road clearance, banking capability
(i.e., lean angle), control operation,
wheel travel, front fork movement,
or any other aspects of the motorcycle’s operation.
2. Weight attached to the handlebars
or front fork will increase the mass
of the steering assembly and can
result in an unsafe riding condition.
3. Fairings, windshields, backrests,
and other large items have the capability of adversely affecting
Black plate (14,1)
14 SAFETY INFORMATION
stability and handling of the motorcycle, not only due to their weight,
but also due to the aerodynamic
force acting on these surfaces while
the motorcycle is in operation.
Poorly designed or installed items
can result in an unsafe riding condition.
Other Load
1. This motorcycle is not intended to
be equipped with a sidecar or to be
used to tow any trailers or other vehicles. Kawasaki does not manufacture sidecars or trailers for
motorcycles and cannot predict the
effects of such accessories on handling or stability, but can only warn
that the effects can be adverse and
that Kawasaki cannot assume responsibility for the results of such
unintended use of the motorcycle.
2. Furthermore, any adverse effects
on motorcycle components caused
by the use of such accessories will
not be remedied under warranty.
If You are Involved in an
Accident
Make sure of your own safety first.
Determine the severity of any injuries
and call for emergency assistance if
needed. Always follow applicable laws
and regulations if any other person, vehicle or property is involved.
Do not attempt to continue riding
without first evaluating your motorcycle's condition. Inspect for fluid leaks,
check critical nuts and bolts, and check
the handlebars, control levers, brakes,
and wheels for damage and proper
function. Ride slowly and cautiously your motorcycle may have suffered
damage that is not immediately
Black plate (15,1)
SAFETY INFORMATION 15
apparent. Have your motorcycle thoroughly checked at a Kawasaki dealer
as soon as possible.
Fueling
WARNING
Safe Operation
The following should be carefully observed for safe and effective vehicle
operation.
Carbon Monoxide Hazard
DANGER
Exhaust gas contains carbon
monoxide, a colorless, odorless
poisonous gas. Inhaling carbon
monoxide can cause serious
brain injury or death. DO NOT run
the engine in enclosed areas. Operate only in a well-ventilated
area.
Gasoline is extremely flammable
and can be explosive under certain conditions. To prevent fire or
explosion, turn the ignition key
off. Do not smoke. Make sure the
area is well ventilated and free
from any source of flame or
sparks; this includes any appliance with a pilot light.
Never Ride with Drugs or Alcohol
Alcohol and drugs impair your judgment and reaction time. Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while
riding motorcycles.
Black plate (16,1)
16 SAFETY INFORMATION
Protective Gear and Clothing
Helmet
Kawasaki strongly recommends the
operator wear a helmet even if this is
not a legal requirement.
- Make sure that your helmet fits correctly and is properly fastened.
- Choose a motorcycle helmet that
meets the safety standards applicable to your country. Ask your motorcycle dealer to advise you if
necessary.
Eye Protection
Always use eye protection. If your
helmet does not have a visor installed,
wear goggles.
Gloves
Wear gloves which have suitable
protection for your hands, especially
against abrasion.
Clothing
Wear the riding wear which have protectors for each parts of the body
(chest, shoulders, back, elbows and
knees, etc.) as much as possible, or
wear protectors for them.
- Always wear a long- sleeved jacket
and long trousers which are abrasion
resistant and keep you warm.
- Wear clothing that allows freedom of
movement.
- Avoid wearing clothes which have
loose cuffs or other fastenings which
could interfere with the controls of
your motorcycle.
- Wear bright, highly visible clothing.
Boots
Wear proper protective boots that fit
properly and do not interfere with gear
shifting or braking.
Black plate (17,1)
SAFETY INFORMATION 17
Safe Riding Techniques
Keep Hands on Handlebars
When riding always keep both hands
on the handlebars and both feet on the
footpegs. Removing your hands from
the handlebars or feet from the footpegs while riding can be hazardous. If
you remove even one hand or foot,
you reduce your ability to control the
motorcycle.
Look Over Your Shoulder
Before changing lanes, look over
your shoulder to make sure the way is
clear. Do not rely solely on the rear
view mirror; you may misjudge a vehicle’s distance and speed, or you may
not see it at all.
Accelerate and Brake Smoothly
In general your actions should be
smooth as sudden acceleration, braking or turning may cause loss of
control, especially when riding in wet
conditions or on loose road surfaces,
when the ability to maneuver will be reduced.
Select Correct Gear Speeds
When going up steep slopes, shift to
a lower gear so that there is power to
spare rather than overloading the engine.
Use Both Front and Rear Brakes
When applying the brakes, use both
the front and rear brakes. Applying only one brake for sudden braking may
cause the motorcycle to skid and lose
control.
Use Engine Brake
When going down long slopes, help
control vehicle speed by closing the
throttle so that the engine can act as
an auxiliary brake. Use the front and
rear brakes for primary braking.
Black plate (18,1)
18 SAFETY INFORMATION
Riding in Wet Conditions
Riding on Rough Roads
Rely more on the throttle to control
vehicle speed and less on the front
and rear brakes. The throttle should also be used judiciously to avoid skidding the rear wheel from too rapid
acceleration or deceleration.
Braking performance is also reduced
in wet conditions. Carefully ride at a
slow speed and apply the brakes several times to help dry and restore them
to normal operating performance.
Lubricate the drive chain after wetweather riding to prevent rust and corrosion.
Exercise caution, slow down, and
grip the fuel tank with the knees for
better stability.
Ride Prudently
Unnecessary weaving jeopardizes
the safety of both the rider and other
motorists.
Riding at the proper speed and
avoiding unnecessarily fast acceleration are important not only for safety
and low fuel consumption but also for
long vehicle life and quieter operation.
Acceleration
When quick acceleration is necessary to pass another vehicle, shift to a
lower gear to obtain the necessary
power.
Downshifting
To avoid engine damage and rear
wheel lock-up do not downshift at high
rpm.
Avoid Unnecessary Weaving
Black plate (19,1)
SAFETY INFORMATION 19
Additional Considerations for
High Speed Operation
WARNING
Handling characteristics of a motorcycle at high speeds may vary
from those you are familiar with
at legal highway speeds. Do not
attempt high speed operation unless you have received sufficient
training and have the required
skills.
Do not operate at high speeds on
public roads.
Brakes
The importance of the brakes, especially during high speed operation,
cannot be overemphasized. Check to
see that they are correctly adjusted
and functioning properly.
Steering
Looseness in the steering can cause
loss of control. Check to see that the
handlebars turns freely but has no
play.
Tires
High speed operation is hard on
tires, and good tires are crucial for safe
riding. Examine their overall condition,
inflate them to the proper pressure,
and check the wheel balance.
Fuel
Have sufficient fuel for the high fuel
consumption during high speed operation.
Engine Oil
To avoid engine seizure and resulting loss of control, make sure that the
oil level is at the upper level line.
Black plate (20,1)
20 SAFETY INFORMATION
Coolant
To avoid overheating, check that the
coolant level is at the upper level line.
Electrical Equipment
Make sure that the headlight, brake/tail light, turn signals, horn, etc., all
work properly.
Miscellaneous
Make sure that all nuts and bolts are
tight and that all safety related parts
are in good condition.

Fuel Requirements
Your Kawasaki engine is designed to
use only unleaded gasoline with a minimum octane rating shown below.
Never use gasoline with an octane rating lower than the minimum specified
Black plate (143,1)
GENERAL INFORMATION 143
by Kawasaki to prevent severe engine
damage.
The octane rating of a gasoline is a
measure of its resistance to detonation
or “knocking.” The term commonly
used to describe a gasoline’s octane
rating is the Research Octane Number
(RON).
NOTICE
Do not use leaded gasoline, as
this will destroy the catalytic converter.
NOTICE
If engine “knocking” or “pinging”
occurs, use a different brand of
gasoline of a higher octane rating. If this condition is allowed to
continue, it can lead to severe engine damage. Gasoline quality is
important. Fuels of low quality or
not meeting standard industry
specifications may result in unsatisfactory performance. Operating problems that result from
the use of poor quality or no recommended fuel may not be covered under your warranty.
Fuel Type and Octane Rating
Use clean, fresh unleaded gasoline
with an ethanol volume content not
more than 10% and an octane rating
Black plate (144,1)
144 GENERAL INFORMATION
equal to or higher than that shown in
the table.

NOTICE
Do not use any fuel that contains
more ethanol or other oxygenates than specified for E10 fuel*
in this vehicle. Damage to the engine and fuel system, or engine
starting
and/or
performance
problems may result from the use
of improper fuel.
*E10 means fuel containing up to 10%
ethanol as specified by European directive.
Filling the Tank
Avoid filling the tank in the rain or
where heavy dust is blowing so that
the fuel does not get contaminated.

Event Data Recorder
In common with many other vehicle

has
Black plate (158,1)
158 GENERAL INFORMATION
equipped this motorcycle with an event
data recorder (EDR). The purpose of
this device is to record data that assists with understanding of how some
of the vehicle's systems were performing during a short period of time immediately before and during an accident
or similar event involving minor damage. Due to accident variables, all vehicle performance data may not be
stored on the EDR.
NOTE
○ During normal riding, data is recorded but not saved unless the vehicle is involved in an accident
event.
○ At no time other than in the event of
an accident or similar event involving
minor damage is it possible for EDR
data to be stored for retrieval.
○ Depending on the type of accident
event, it is possible that the EDR
may not record some or all of the data, or it may not record if the EDR is
damaged.
○ This device does not collect or store
personal data or information (e.g.
name, gender, age).
The EDR in this vehicle is designed
to record only data that is relevant to
the vehicle’s running condition at the
time of an accident like, but not limited
to, vehicle speed, engine crankshaft
rotational speed and throttle opening,
etc.
This data can help provide a better
understanding for both the rider and
the manufacturer of how the vehicle
was performing at the time of an accident or near accident-like situation.
To read data recorded by an EDR,
special equipment and access to the
EDR is required. Kawasaki will not access or share the EDR information

or downhill surfaces, the stopping
distance of a motorcycle with ABS
may be longer than that of an equivalent motorcycle without ABS. Use
special caution in such areas.
ABS will help prevent wheel lock-up
when braking in a straight line, but it
cannot control wheel slip which may
be caused by braking during cornering. When turning a corner, it is better to limit braking to the light
application of both brakes or not to
brake at all. Reduce your speed before you get into the corner.
Same as conventional brake system,
an excessive sudden braking may
cause wheel lock up that makes it
harder to control a motorcycle.
During braking, ABS will not prevent
the rear wheel lifting.

Your Kawasaki Motorcycle has been
designed and manufactured to provide
you optimum safety and convenience.
However, in order to fully benefit from
Kawasaki's safety engineering and
craftsmanship, it is essential that you,
the owner and operator, properly maintain your motorcycle and become thoroughly familiar with its operation.
Improper maintenance can create a
dangerous situation known as throttle
failure. Two of the most common
causes of throttle failure are:
1. An improperly serviced or clogged
air cleaner may allow dirt and dust
to enter the throttle body and stick
the throttle open.
In an emergency situation such as
throttle failure, your vehicle may be
stopped by applying the brakes and
disengaging the clutch. Once this stopping procedure is initiated, the engine
stop switch may be used to stop the
engine. If the engine stop switch is
used, turn off the ignition switch after
stopping the motorcycle.

Kawasaki TRaction Control
(KTRC)
KTRC is an intelligent system that
calculates the slip level of the rear
wheel (wheelspin) during acceleration
and controls the optimum slip ratio to
suit the riding conditions. KTRC can
contribute to a stable ride not only for
sports riding but also when riding on a
rough or slippery road surface.
KTRC is designed for use on public
roads. KTRC cannot respond to every
condition. Acceleration may be delayed under certain conditions.
Black plate (173,1)
HOW TO RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE 173
WARNING
KTRC cannot protect the rider
from all possible hazards and is
not a substitute for safe riding
practices. Be aware of how the
KTRC system operates and its
limitations. It is the rider's responsibility to ride at appropriate
speeds and manner for weather,
road surface and traffic conditions.
If a wheelie occurs due to excessive
acceleration, KTRC will control the engine output to make the front wheel
contact the road surface. In this case,
slightly release the throttle grip so that
the front wheel stays in contact with
the road surface.
WARNING
Use of nonrecommended tires
could cause a malfunction or improper operation of KTRC. Always
use
recommended
standard tires for this motorcycle.
KTRC determines the traction control
characteristics with three mode selections. KTRC can also be set to OFF.
KTRC and the Power mode can be
set separately. By combining each setting, the rider can get various riding
feelings. For further details on the combined use of the KTRC and the Power
mode, refer to KTRC and Power Mode
Combination section.

Coolant Requirement
WARNING
Coolant containing corrosion inhibitors for aluminum engines
and radiators include harmful
chemicals for human body. Drinking coolant can result in serious
injury or death. Use coolant in accordance with the instructions of
the manufacturer.
Use a permanent type of antifreeze
(soft water and ethylene glycol plus
corrosion and rust inhibitor chemicals
for aluminum engines and radiators) in
the cooling system. On the mixture ratio of coolant, choose the suitable one
referring to the relation between freezing point and strength directed on the
container.
NOTICE
If hard water is used in the system, it causes scale accumulation in the water passages, and
considerably reduces the efficiency of the cooling system.
NOTE
○ 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).

General Precautions
Frequent and proper care of your vehicle will enhance its appearance, optimize overall performance, and extend
its useful life. Covering your vehicle
with a high quality, breathable vehicle
cover will help protect its finish from
harmful UV rays, pollutants, and reduce the amount of dust reaching its
surfaces.
WARNING
Build-up of debris or flammable
material in and around the vehicle chassis, engine, and exhaust can cause mechanical
problems and increase the risk of
fire. When operating the vehicle
in conditions that allow debris or
flammable material to collect in
and around the vehicle, inspect
the engine, electrical component
and exhaust areas frequently. If
debris or flammable materials
have collected, park the vehicle
outside and stop the engine. Allow the engine to cool, then remove any collected debris. Do
not park or store the vehicle in an
enclosed space prior to inspecting for build-up of debris or flammable materials.

NOTICE
Plastic parts may deteriorate and
break if they come in contact with
chemical substances or household cleaning products such as
gasoline, brake fluid, window
cleaners, thread-locking agents,
or other harsh chemicals. If a
plastic part comes in contact with
any harsh chemical substance,
wash it off immediately with
water and a mild neutral detergent, and then inspect for damage. Avoid using abrasive pads
or brushes to clean plastic parts,
as they will damage the part’s finish.
Chrome and Aluminum
Chrome and uncoated aluminum
parts can be treated with a
chrome/aluminum polish. Coated aluminum should be washed with a mild
neutral detergent and finished with a
spray polish. Aluminum wheels, both
painted and unpainted can be cleaned
with special non-acid based wheel
spray cleaners.
Leather, Vinyl, and Rubber
If your vehicle has leather accessories, special care must be taken. Use a
leather cleaner/treatment to clean and
care for leather accessories. Washing
leather parts with detergent and water
will damage them, shortening their life.
Vinyl parts should be washed with
the rest of the vehicle, then treated with
a vinyl treatment.
The sidewalls of tires and other rubber components should be treated with
a rubber protectant to help prolong
their useful life.
