Battery Maintenance
It is the owner’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 drops
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 make the 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
not drive for four weeks or more, dis-
connect the battery from the vehicle.
Kawasaki-recommended chargers are:
Battery Mate 150-9
OptiMate 4
Yuasa MB-2040/2060
Christie C1 0122S
