Improper routing of electrical wires under fuel tank causes the leads to contact with frame edge. If it is continuously used, the outer insulation of leads may be worn, causing the core wires to short circuit to the frame edge. This results in engine stall in the worst case. The throttle body holder may harden because its heat resistance is insufficient. If it is continuously used, the throttle body holder may be cracked and additional air may flow into the engine. This results in unstable engine running, or engine stall in the worst case.
What to do...
Contact an authorised Kawasaki dealer supplying your VIN number. Only early models require throttle body holder replacement.
