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.

NOTE

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 M: The throttle response is less sharp compared to mode F. Depending on the throttle application, full power can be accessed temporarily.

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

Power Mode Positions


The current mode selection is displayed on the power mode indicator [A] in the multifunction meter.

If a failure occurs with a FI related components such as a subthrottle or main throttle sensor, the warning indicator light (red LED) and FI warning symbol will go ON, and/or the S-KTRC indicator [B] and warning indicator light (yellow LED) [C] blink. The current mode cannot be changed at this time.

Intake Air Temperature Sensor Output Voltage Inspection
NOTE Be sure the battery is fully charged. Turn the ignition switch to OFF. Remove the fuel tank (see Fuel Tank Removal in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter). Disconnect the intake air temperature sensor connector and connect the measuring adapter [A] between these connectors as shown in ...

Valve Clearance
Valve and valve seat wear decreases valve clearance, upsetting valve timing. NOTICE If valve clearance is left unadjusted, wear will eventually cause the valves to remain partly open; which lowers performance, burns the valves and valve seats, and may cause serious engine damage. Valve cle ...

Clutch Plate, Wear, Damage Inspection
Visually inspect the friction and steel plates for signs of seizure, overheating (discoloration), or uneven wear. Measure the thickness of each friction plate [A] at several points. If any plates show signs of damage, or if they have worn past the service limit, replace them with new on ...
