Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / General Information / Technical Information-Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS/ZX1000K model only) / Overview

Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) offers enhanced braking stability (ABS performance equivalent to the current model) to supersportmodels, which pitch more than most motorcycles and also offers high-precision front and rear brake pressure control (high-precision ABS) for sport riding.

Precise control of the ABS operation decreases kickback to the brake lever and brake pedal during braking compared to the conventional system.

In addition to the front and rear wheel sensors in a conventional ABS, KIBS monitors a number of parameters: front caliper hydraulic pressure and information from the FI ECU (engine speed, throttle position, gear position, and clutch actuation).

KIBS uses an all-new BOSCH hydraulic unit which was designed specifically for motorcycle use.

The new design is small and light weight (45% less volume and 800g lighter than current units). The unit is located close to the motorcycle’s center of gravity, behind the engine cylinder and above the sprocket cover.

Operational Cautions
1. Do not put two keys of any immobilizer system on the same key ring. 2. Do not submerge any key in water. 3. Do not expose any key to excessively high temperature. 4. Do not place any key close to magnet. 5. Do not place a heavy item on any key. 6. Do not grind any key or alter its ...

Balancer Adjustment
Remove the left lower fairing (see Lower Fairing Removal in the Frame chapter). Start the engine and warm it up thoroughly. Adjust the balancer gear backlash with the engine idling. The amount of backlash can be changed by turning the balancer shaft which has eccentric journals. St ...
