Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Self-Diagnosis System / Main Throttle Sensor (Service Code 11) / Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection

NOTE

Be sure the battery is fully charged.

Do not disconnect the connectors of the throttle body assy.

Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Special Tool - Throttle Sensor Setting Adapter: 57001 -1538

Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Connections to Adapter: Digital Meter (+) → W (sensor BL) lead Digital Meter (–) → BK (sensor BR/BK) lead

Input Voltage Standard: DC 4.75 5.25 V


If the reading is within the standard, check the main throttle sensor resistance (see Main Throttle Sensor Resistance Inspection).

If the reading is out of the standard, remove the ECU and check the wiring for continuity between harness connectors.

Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Wiring Continuity Inspection ECU Connector [A] ←→ Main Throttle Sensor Connector [B] BL lead (ECU terminal 9) [C] BR/BK lead (ECU terminal 13) [D]

If the wiring is good, check the ECU for its ground and power supply (see ECU Power Supply Inspection in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter).

If the ground and power supply are good, replace the ECU (see ECU Removal/Installation in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter).

Main Throttle Sensor Removal/Adjustment
NOTICE Do not remove or adjust the main throttle sensor [A] since it has been adjusted and set with precision at the factory. Never drop the throttle body assy especially on a hard surface. Suc ...

Main Throttle Sensor Resistance Inspection
Turn the ignition switch to OFF. Measure the main throttle sensor resistance in the same way as input voltage inspection, note the following. Disconnect the throttle sensor setting adapter [ ...

Brake Hose and Pipe Damage and Installation Condition Inspection
Inspect the brake hoses, pipes and fittings for deterioration, cracks and signs of leakage. The high pressure inside the brake line can cause fluid to leak [A] or the hose to burst if the line is not properly maintained. Bend and twist the rubber hose while examining it. Replace the ...

Check 3-4: Turn Signal Indicator Light (LED) Inspection
Connect the leads in the same circuit as Check 3-2. Connect the terminal [5] to the battery (+) terminal. Connect the terminal [6] to the battery (+) terminal. Check that the turn signal indicator light (LED) [A] goes on. If the indicator light does not go on, replace the meter ...

Spark Plug Condition Inspection
Remove the spark plugs (see Spark Plug Replacement in the Periodic Maintenance chapter). Visually inspect the spark plugs. If the spark plug center electrode [A] and/or side electrode [B] are corroded or damaged, or if the insulator [C] is cracked, replace the plug. If the spark plug is ...
