This 1980-1983 Kawasaki KZ250 Motorcycle Repair Service Manual is designed primarily for use by Kawasaki motorcycle mechanics working in a properly equipped shop, although it contains enough detail and basic information to make it useful to the KZ250 owner who desires to carry out his own basic maintenance and repair work. Since a certain basic knowledge of mechanics, the proper use of tools, and workshop procedures must be understood in order to carry out maintenance and repair satisfactorily; the adjustments, maintenance, and repair should be carried out only by qualified mechanics whenever the owner has insufficient experience, or has doubts as to his ability to do the work, so that the motorcycle can be operated safely. In order to perform the work efficiently and to avoid costly mistakes, the mechanic should read the text, thoroughly familiarizing himself with the procedures before starting work, and then do the work carefully in a clean area. Whenever special tools or equipment is specified, makeshift tools or equipment should not be used. Precision measurements can only be made if the proper instruments are used, and the use of substitute tools may adversely affect safe operation of the motorcycle. Whenever you see the symbols shown below, heed their instructions! Always follow safe operating and maintenance practices.
1980-1983 Kawasaki KZ250 Motorcycle Repair Service Manual Organization
This manual is divided into the following chapters:
(1) Adjustment The adjustment chapter gives the procedure for all adjustments which may become necessary periodically and which do not involve major disassembly.
(2) Disassembly This chapter shows the best method for the removal, disassembly, assembly, and installation which are necessary for maintenance and repair. Do not disassemble the component parts further than explained here. Since assembly and installation are usually the reverse of disassembly and removal, assembly and installation are not explained in detail in some cases. Instead, assembly notes and installation notes are provided to explain special points. In cases the removal procedures are apparent without explanation such as for the seat or side stand, no information is given.
(3) Maintenance The procedures for inspection and repair are described in detail in this chapter. An explanation on the structure and functioning of each of the major parts and assemblies, especially on one of new devices, is given to enable the mechanic to better understand what he is doing.
(4) Appendix The appendix in the back of this manual contains miscellaneous information, including a special tool list and a wiring diagram. (5) Supplement The maintenance and repair procedures, that are unique to later year units since the first publication of the Service Manual, are explained in this chapter per one year unit. Since the Service Manual is based on the first production units of KZ250-C, D, G, there may be minor discrepancies between some vehicles and the illustrations and text in this manual. Explanations on major changes and additions pertaining to later year units will be added in the end of the supplement by a new edition, as required.
