Ignition Timing Inspection and Adjustment
  This motorcycle has three sets of contact points, each set controlling the ignition spark for a different cylinder. When servicing the ignition system, bear in mind that each set of contact points is independent and must be inspected and adjusted separately.
  Turn the crankshaft in the direction of engine rotation. When the F mark on the rotor is aligned with the timing mark at the inspection window, the contact points should be just starting to open if ignition timing is correctly set.
Gap adjustment
  Turn the crankshaft so that the contact points are at their widest opening.
  lf the gap is not 0.3~0.4 mm (0.012~0.016 in), loosen the screw and use a screwdriver in the pry points to set the gap to 0.35 mm (0.014 in).
  Tighten the screw.
Note: Clean the contact points with fine emery cloth, and then run a clean piece of paper between them to remove any remaining fillings or oil.
  If the contact points become badly pitted or burnt, they should be replaced.
Timing adjustment
  If ignition timing is incorrect, have it adjusted by your authorized Kawasaki Dealer.
  The exhaust system (i.e., baffle tube, muffler, piston head, exhaust port and cylinder head) can fill up with carbon and other exhaust by-products over an extended period of operation, resulting in a drop in performance. Decarbonization of the exhaust system should be done periodically by an authorized Kawasaki Dealer.
Fuel Tap Cleaning
  Accumulation of water or sediment in the fuel tank and tap will restrict the flow of fuel and cause the carburetors to malfunction. The fuel tap should be cleaned out periodically in the following manner:
  Turn the fuel tap lever to OFF, and unscrew the sediment cup from the bottom of fuel tap. The gasket and filter are mounted on the fuel tap. Being careful not to damage the gasket and filter, remove the filter using a screwdriver.
  Using a piece of cloth, wipe out the inside of the fuel tap, wash the cup and filter in regular solvent and then reassemble.
Note: If water has accumulated in the sediment cup, water may also be accumulated in the float bowls. In this case have the carburetors checked by your authorized Kawasaki Dealer.
  After washing, check the gasket and filter. Replace them if damaged.
  Make sure the sediment cup is tight. Turn the fuel tap lever a few times to the RES position, and check for leaks. If fuel leaks from the sediment cup, the gasket may be damaged. Visually inspect the gasket and replace it if necessary.
