Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: Crankshaft Sensor Inspection

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Electrical System / Ignition System / Crankshaft Sensor Inspection

Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

Crankshaft Sensor Resistance Connections: Meter (+) → Y lead Meter (–) → BK lead Standard: 376 564 Ω


Crankshaft Sensor Inspection


If there is more resistance than the specified value, the coil has an open lead and must be replaced. Much less than this resistance means the coil is shorted, and must be replaced.

Any tester reading less than infinity (∞) indicates a short, necessitating replacement of the crankshaft sensor.

Crankshaft Sensor Installation
Apply a non-permanent locking agent to the crankshaft sensor bolts [A]. Tighten: Torque - Crankshaft Sensor Bolts: 5.9 N·m (0.60 kgf·m, 52 in·lb) Using a high flash-point solvent, clea ...

Crankshaft Sensor Peak Voltage Inspection
NOTE Be sure the battery is fully charged. Using the peak voltage adapter [A] is more reliable way to determine the condition of the crankshaft sensor than crankshaft sensor internal resista ...

Other materials:

Sidestand Installation
Replace the sidestand nut [A] with a new one. Apply grease to the sliding areas [B]. Tighten the sidestand bolt [C] first, and then the sidestand nut. Torque - Sidestand Bolt: 44 N·m (4.5 kgf·m, 32 ft·lb) Sidestand Nut: 29 N·m (3.0 kgf·m, 21 ft·lb) Install the spring [D] as sh ...

Fuel Hose Inspection (fuel leak, damage, installation condition)
If the motorcycle is not properly handled, the high pressure inside the fuel line can cause fuel to leak [A] or the hose to burst. Remove the fuel tank (see Fuel Tank Removal in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter) and check the fuel hoses. Replace the fuel hose if any fraying, cracks [B] or ...

Stick Coil Inspection
Remove the stick coils (see Stick Coil Removal). Measure the primary winding resistance [A] as follows. Connect the hand tester between the coil terminals. Set the tester to the × 1 Ω range, and read the tester. Measure the secondary winding resistance [B] as follows. Conn ...
