Battery Maintenance
It is the o wner’s responsibility to keep
the battery fully charged. Failure to do
so can lead to battery failure and leave
you stranded.
If you are riding your vehicle infre-
quently, inspect the battery voltage
weekly using a voltmeter. If it dro ps
below 12.6 volts, the battery should be
charged using an appropriate charger
(check with your Kawasaki dealer).
If you will not be using the motorcy-
cle for longer than two weeks, the
battery should be charged using an
appropriate charger. Do not use an au-
tomotive-type quick charger that may
overcharge the battery and damage it.
NOTE
Leaving the battery connected
causes the electrical components
(clock etc.) to m ake th e battery dis-
charged, resulting the over discharge
of the battery. In this case, the repair
or replacement of the battery is not
included in the warranty. If you do
notdriveforfourweeksormore,dis-
connect the battery from the vehicle.
