Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Self-Diagnosis System / Self-Diagnosis / Backups






(1): D-J Method: When the engine load is light like at idling or low speed, the ECU determines the injection quantity by calculating from the throttle vacuum (vacuum sensor output voltage) and engine speed (crankshaft sensor output voltage). This method is called D-J method.

(2): α-N Method: As the engine speed increases, and the engine load turns middle to heavy, the ECU determines the injection quantity by calculating from the throttle opening (throttle sensor output voltage) and the engine speed. This method is called α-N method.

*: This depends on the number of stopped cylinders.

The main throttle sensor is a rotating variable resistor that change output voltage according to throttle operating. The ECU senses this voltage change and determines fuel injection quantity, and ignition timing according to engine rpm, and throttle opening.

Service Code Erasing
When repair has been done, warning indicator light (LED) and warning symbol go off and service code are not displayed. But the service codes stored in memory of the ECU are not erased to preserve ...

Side Stand
The motorcycle is equipped with a side stand. A. Side Stand NOTE When using the side stand, turn the handlebar to the left. Do not sit on the motorcycle while it is on its side stand or centre stand. Always kick the stand fully up before sitting on the motorcycle. NOTE The motorcycl ...

Water Pump Inspection
Remove the left lower fairing (see Lower Fairing Removal in the Frame chapter). Check the drainage outlet passage [A] at the bottom of the water pump body for coolant leaks. If the mechanical seal is damaged, the coolant leaks through the seal and drains through the passage. Replace th ...

Exhaust Butterfly Valve Actuator Resistance Inspection
Turn the ignition switch to OFF. Disconnect the exhaust butterfly valve actuator lead connector (2 pins connector) [A]. Set the hand tester to the × 1 Ω range and connect it to the exhaust butterfly valve actuator connector. Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394 Measure ...
