Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: Technical Information-Power Mode

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / General Information / Technical Information-Power Mode

The rider can choose from three engine power modes to suit their preferences and road conditions.

The FI ECU controls the engine power by adjusting fuel injection, air intake, and ignition timing. It enables three-mode selection: Full Power (Mode F), Middle Power (Mode M), and Low Power (Mode L).

In addition, combining each mode with each S-KTRC setting allows the rider to have more choices to be able to interact with various conditions.

The power mode setting is maintained when the ignition switch is turned OFF, or when the battery is disconnected.

Mode F: The highest engine power output is achieved. The rider can use the full power of the engine.

Mode L: About 60% of the highest engine power output is achieved. The throttle response is mildest among the three modes.
