Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual: Catalytic Converter

Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual / How to ride the motorcycle / Catalytic Converter

This motorcycle is equipped with a catalytic converter in the exhaust system.

The converter reacts with carbonmonoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides to convert them into carbon dioxide, water, nitrogen and oxygen resulting in much cleaner exhaust gases to be discharged into the atmosphere.

For proper operation of the catalytic converter, the following cautions must be observed.
