Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: Mode-switching

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / General Information / Technical Information-Sport-Kawasaki TRaction Control System (S-KTRC) / Mode-switching

Depress the S-KTRC button on the left handlebar switch to change the mode. The mode can be changed only when the throttle grip is closed completely.

The S-KTRC OFF can be selected only when the motorcycle is at a stop. Changing to mode 1 from S-KTRC OFF is possible while riding.

Mode-switching


NOTE

Mode 1: S-KTRC least restrictive among the three modes.

This makes lengthy drifts and wheelies possible when exiting tight corners.

Mode 2: There is more S-KTRC interaction compared to mode 1. This makes slight drifts possible when exiting tight corners.

Mode 3: S-KTRC intervenes to prevent the rear wheel from spinning whenever possible.
