1.    Remove stock shock absorber according to procedures outlined in the Kawasaki service manual.
2.    Once the stock shock absorber is removed, install G3-S shock through the bottom of the swing arm.  With reservoir facing the rear of the motorcycle install the top shock bolt and torque to factory specifications.

3.    Install the lower shock and linkage arm bolt.  Torque fasteners to factory specifications.

 4.    Remove left side passenger peg bracket.

5.    Use the included longer Allen bolts.  Install the aluminum washer on the front passenger peg mounting bolt.

6.    Thread the front passenger peg mounting bolt into position.  Do not torque this bolt yet leave it slightly loose.


7.    Slide the reservoir mounting bracket between the foot peg bracket and the frame.  Thread the other included Allen bolt into position.

8.     Be sure the front of the reservoir makes contact with the plastic undercarriage as shown.  This provides proper clearance for the swing arm.

9.    Locate the Allen bolt heads on the reservoir bracket into the recess in the foot peg bracket as shown.  Failure to do so can cause damage to the foot peg bracket.

 10.      Torque the two passenger peg mounting bolts to factory specification.  The picture for step ten shows the position of the properly mounted reservoir.

Have Fun, Go Ride.
