This 193 page, 1985-1988 Kawasaki ZL900 ZL1000 Eliminator Service Manual Supplement is a reproduction of the original manual, out of print manual. This manual must be used in conjunction with item: 99924-1048-11 (Kawasaki ZX900 Motorcycle Service Manual – sold separately). Together both books provide detailed service information, step-by-step repair instruction and maintenance specifications for Kawasaki ZL900-A1 Eliminator, 1986 Kawasaki ZL900-A2 Eliminator, 1987 Kawasaki ZL1000-A1 and 1988 Kawasaki ZL1000-A2 (UK) motorcycles. Please note that this rare original manual is out of print and is only available as a reproduction. We have a limited supply on hand and can no longer get these once they are gone.

Now before you pull the trigger here you need to understand that you NEED both the base and the supplement manual to work on your motorcycle. Many people try to buy the supplement manual only and then find out it is missing most of the information they need and they get frustrated. The 1985-1988 Kawasaki ZL900 ZL1000 Eliminator Service Manual Supplement is designed to be used in conjunction with the Kawasaki ZX900 Motorcycle Service Manual (P/N 99924-1048-11). The maintenance and repair procedures described in this supplement are only those that are unique to 1985-1988 Kawasaki ZL900 ZL1000 Eliminator motorcycles and the supplement will not have everything you need. Most service operations for these models remain identical to those described in the base Service Manual. Complete and proper servicing of 1985-1988 Kawasaki ZL900 ZL1000 Eliminator motorcycles requires both this supplement and the base Service Manual. The base Service Manual and this Supplement are designed primarily for use by motorcycle mechanics in a properly equipped shop. However, they contain enough detail and basic information to make them useful to the 1985-1988 Kawasaki ZL900 ZL1000 Eliminator owner who wants to perform his/her own basic maintenance and repair work. A basic know ledge of mechanics, the proper use of tools, and work shop procedures must be understood in order to carry out maintenance and repair satisfactorily. Whenever the operator has insufficient experience or doubts his ability to do the work, the adjustments, maintenance, and repair should be carried out only by qualified mechanics. In order to perform the work efficiently and to avoid costly mistakes, the mechanic should read the text, thoroughly familiarize himself with the procedures before starting work, and then do the work carefully in a clean area. Whenever special tools and equipment are 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.
