Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual: Engine Oil

Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual / Maintenance and adjustment / Engine Oil

In order for the engine, transmission, and clutch to function properly, maintain the engine oil at the proper level, and change the oil and replace the oil filter in accordance with the Periodic Maintenance Chart. Not only do dirt and metal particles collect in the oil, but the oil itself loses its lubricative quality if used too long.
