2006 Kawasaki Z750 S Stock Image

This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the 2006 Kawasaki Z750S.

In 2005, Kawasaki launched the Z750S, a touring variant. This version has a single long seat instead of the two-part seat on the Z750, half fairing for wind protection, and excludes the rear tire hugger fender found on the unfaired Z750. The S version uses an analog speedometer and a tachometer.

The Z750S is powered by a liquid-cooled, 748cc, in-line four-cylinder engine that delivers a smooth linear powerband. It features a bore and stroke of 68.4mm x 50.9mm, double-overhead cams, 16 valves, reshaped intake ports, exhaust ports, and combustion chambers.

General information about the 2006 Kawasaki Z750S

The Z750S is powered by a liquid-cooled, 748cc, in-line four-cylinder engine that delivers a smooth linear powerband. It features a bore and stroke of 68.4mm x 50.9mm, double-overhead cams, 16 valves, reshaped intake ports, exhaust ports, and combustion chambers. A four-into-one exhaust system enhances mid-range power, while an oval-shaped, racing-inspired muffler helps to keep the Z750S running quietly. The muffler also includes a metal honeycomb catalyzer to reduce emissions.

The Z750S is the first middleweight naked bike to feature electronic fuel injection and utilizes 34mm throttle bodies. Combined with high-speed digital ignition, both systems are managed by an electronic engine control unit (ECU) for snappy throttle response. To maintain a consistent operating temperature, the Z750S utilizes the same large radiator and ring fan as that found on the Z1000.

Power is transferred to the rear wheel through a six-speed transmission and 520 X-ring drive chain, and the Z750S rides on high-performance radial tires mounted on six-spoke 17-inch wheels. The Z750S’s lightweight diamond frame is constructed of large diameter, thin wall tubing for strength and rigidity for nimble backroad handling and high-speed stability. Plus, the detachable right front-top portion of the frame makes tune-ups easier.
