Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual: Fuel Tank

Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual / General information / Fuel Tank

The following octane rating gasoline is recommended for the fuel tank.

Avoid filling the tank in the rain or where heavy dust is blowing so that the fuel does not get contaminated.

Fuel Tank


A. Tank Cap

B. Fuel Tank

C. Top Level

D. Filler Neck

WARNING

Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explosive under certain conditions, creating the potential for serious burns. Turn the ignition switch to “OFF”. Do not smoke. Make sure the area is well-ventilated and free from any source of flame or sparks; this includes any appliance with a pilot light. Never fill the tank completely to the top. If the tank is filled completely to the top, heat may cause the fuel to expand and overflow through the vents in the tank cap. After refueling, make sure the tank cap is closed securely. If gasoline is spilled on the fuel tank, wipe it off immediately.

NOTICE

California model only: Never fill the tank so the fuel level rises into the filler neck. If the tank is overfilled, heat may cause the fuel to expand and flow into the Evaporative Emission Control System resulting in hard starting and engine hesitation and in compliance with the emission regulation.
