Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: Coolant Deterioration Inspection

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Cooling System / Coolant / Coolant Deterioration Inspection

If whitish cotton-like wafts are observed, aluminum parts in the cooling system are corroded. If the coolant is brown, iron or steel parts are rusting. In either case, flush the cooling system.

If the coolant gives off an abnormal smell, check for a cooling system leak. It may be caused by exhaust gas leaking into the cooling system.
