Appendix / Storage

Whenever your motorcycle will not be in use for a long period, proper storage is essential.

It consists of checking and replacing missing or worn parts; lubricating parts to ensure that they do not corrode and, in general, preparing the motorcycle so that when the time comes to use it again, it will be in top condition.

See your authorized Kawasaki dealer for this service or do the following.

Preparation for Storage

Exhaust gas contains carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless poisonous gas. Inhaling carbon monoxide can cause serious brain injury or death.

DO NOT run the engine in enclosed areas. Operate only in a well-ventilated area.


Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explosive under certain conditions, creating the potential for serious burns.


Gasoline is a toxic substance. Dispose of gasoline properly. Contact your local authorities for approved disposal methods.
