Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Self-Diagnosis System / Main Throttle Sensor (Service Code 11) / Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection

NOTE

Be sure the battery is fully charged.

Do not disconnect the connectors of the throttle body assy.

Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Special Tool - Throttle Sensor Setting Adapter: 57001 -1538

Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Connections to Adapter: Digital Meter (+) → W (sensor BL) lead Digital Meter (–) → BK (sensor BR/BK) lead

Input Voltage Standard: DC 4.75 5.25 V


If the reading is within the standard, check the main throttle sensor resistance (see Main Throttle Sensor Resistance Inspection).

If the reading is out of the standard, remove the ECU and check the wiring for continuity between harness connectors.

Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

Main Throttle Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Wiring Continuity Inspection ECU Connector [A] ←→ Main Throttle Sensor Connector [B] BL lead (ECU terminal 9) [C] BR/BK lead (ECU terminal 13) [D]

If the wiring is good, check the ECU for its ground and power supply (see ECU Power Supply Inspection in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter).

If the ground and power supply are good, replace the ECU (see ECU Removal/Installation in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter).

Main Throttle Sensor Removal/Adjustment
NOTICE Do not remove or adjust the main throttle sensor [A] since it has been adjusted and set with precision at the factory. Never drop the throttle body assy especially on a hard surface. Suc ...

Main Throttle Sensor Resistance Inspection
Turn the ignition switch to OFF. Measure the main throttle sensor resistance in the same way as input voltage inspection, note the following. Disconnect the throttle sensor setting adapter [ ...

Oxygen Sensor Heater Resistance Inspection
Turn the ignition switch to OFF. Remove the fuel tank (see Fuel Tank Removal in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter). Disconnect the oxygen sensor lead connector [A]. Connect a digital meter [A] to the terminals in the oxygen sensor lead connector [B]. Measure the oxygen sensor heat ...

Inner Tube Inspection
Visually inspect the inner tube [A]. If there is any damage, replace the inner tube. Since damage to the inner tube damages the oil seal, replace the oil seal whenever the inner tube is replaced. NOTICE If the inner tube is badly bent or creased, replace it. Excessive bending, followed by ...

Wheel Bearing Damage Inspection
Raise the front wheel off the ground with the jack (see Front Wheel Removal in the Wheels/Tires chapter). Special Tools - Jack: 57001-1238 Jack Attachment: 57001-1608 Turn the handlebar all the way to the right or left. Inspect the roughness of the front wheel bearing by moving [A] ...
