H manual rear suspension typo

Post by KwakKwak » Tue Feb 11, 2014 2:07 pm

Just noticed the H manual has it's L and M muddled up in reference to the rear suspension, shows M as locking agent and L as moly grease, oops, this could be rather awkward if one doesn't have their common sense switched on. I keep checking it in case I'm going mad, Mr Kawasaki does correct himself in the L manual. Although putting a locking agent where grease should be would be bloody stupid, if one was following the manual blindly this could be rather costly.
Could we make a thread with other manual typos etc, someone points a possible typo out, and one of our esteemed and knowledgable members confirms said manual error, I noticed CaNsA's fork correction post for example.
Apologies if this has been done and I've missed it.

I reckon the guy who designed the rear shock also wrote this part of the manual, he's starting to annoy me now. Naughty Mr Kawasaki :pmsl
Does the low seat height reflect the low intelligence? Easier to get an asshole onto.

Maybe thats why the rear suspension is so stiff, people have used locking agent instead of grease on the linkages :smt005

A non permanent locking agent might be the way to go :pmsl , I'm having loads of moly fun at present, very rewarding, spreading the love.
