Took my X300 out this morning for a ride and to warm the oil for an oil/filter change.
All was good until I got the books out from under the seat. The Kawasaki dealer provided me with an Owners Manual and a separate Warranty Handbook, which also includes a maintenance schedule and pages with marked boxes to enter maintenance events.
Something did not seem right. On cross-referencing I found that the warranty handbook required engine oil changes at 1,000km. 6,000km, 12,000km 18,000km etc, with a filter change at each 2nd event.
However, the owners manual requires engine oil changes at 1,000km, 12,000km, 24,000km etc, with a filter change at each event.
I am guessing that the owners manual is correct.
