Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: KIBS Servicing Precautions

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Brakes / KIBS (Equipped Models) / KIBS Servicing Precautions

There are a number of important precautions that should be followed servicing the KIBS.

NOTICE

When the KDS connector cover with a lead is connected to the KIBS Kawasaki Self-Diagnosis System connector by mistake, the fuse of the KIBS blows and its function will not work.

WARNING

Air in the brake lines diminish braking performance and can cause an accident resulting in injury or death. If any of the brake line fittings, including the KIBS hydraulic unit joint nuts, or the bleed valve is opened at any time, the air must be bled completely from the brake line. If the brake lever has a soft or "spongy" feeling mushy when it is applied, there might be air in the brake lines or the brake may be defective. Do not operate the vehicle and service the brake system immediately.

NOTICE

Do not ride the motorcycle with air in the brake line, or the KIBS could malfunction.
