Emission Control Information
To protect the environment in which we all live, Kawasaki has incorporated
crankcase emission (1) and exhaust emission (2) control systems in compliance
with applicable regulations of the United States Environmental Protection Agency
and California Air Resources Board. Additionally, Kawasaki has incorporated
an evaporative emission control system (3) in compliance with applicable regulations
of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and California Air
1. Crankcase Emission Control System
This system eliminates the release of crankcase vapors into the atmosphere.
Instead, the vapors are routed through an oil separator to the intake side of the
engine. While the engine is operating, the vapors are drawn into the combustion
chamber, where they are burned along with the fuel and air supplied by the fuel
2. Exhaust Emission Control System
This system reduces the amount of pollutants discharged into the atmosphere
by the exhaust of this motorcycle. The fuel, ignition and exhaust systems of this
motorcycle have been carefully designed and constructed to ensure an efficient
engine with low exhaust pollutant levels. The exhaust system of this model motorcycle
includes a catalytic converter system.
3. Evaporative Emission Control System
The evaporative emission control system for this vehicle consists of low permeation
fuel hoses and fuel tank.
3. Evaporative Emission Control System (California)
Vapors caused by fuel evaporation in the fuel system are not vented into the
atmosphere. Instead, fuel vapors are routed into the running engine to be burned,
or stored in a canister when the engine is stopped.
High Altitude Performance Adjustment Information
High Altitude adjustment is not required.
