The throttle assembly is also different for California.

I just got the email reply about requesting a non- California bike. The district manager said they switched my order and it is expected to arrive mid to late March. So about 19 days or less from now. I don't know if the CA compliant bike was supposed to arrive earlier but in my opinion waiting a few extra days is worth it.

Apparently the CA models are ZX1002BJFL, with the "L" being the identifier for the California models. So if you are concerned about getting a CA compliant bike I would contact your dealership and request a non-L model. I'm not sure what the model code is for the 49 state bikes.

Also I noticed on the Kawasaki UK site they have a totally different part number for their ECU. But it appears all European bikes will have the same European ECU. US (not California) and Canadian bikes will have the same ECU as each other. Californian compliant bikes have their own ECU.

I know this is also an issue with many other Kawasaki bikes in states bordering CA, there was a similar discussion on the Ninja 1000 forums back in the days, most people that purchased N1K in states bordering CA got CA compliant bikes

I feel like the EU/JP bikes that have the ETC option might have different ECUs

Here is a link to the California Air Resource Board (CARB) concerning the H2 SX/SE
Here is a list of pollution reducing devices equipped on this motorcycle.

Sequential Fuel Injection (SFI)
Pulsed Air Secondary Injection System (PAIR)
Three-way catalyst (TWC)
Heated O2 Sensor (H02S)
Supercharger (SC)

Dont be too worried. Most motorcycles, CA based or not have emission control devices, CA models just have more than the rest.

I mean, even the Super Chargers/Turbo Chargers can be considered emission control devices :)

I'm not sure what they are referring to as Sequential Fuel Injection but have 2 sets of injectors is common on sport bikes nowadays.

All the bikes will have the Pair system.

I'm pretty sure all will have an 02 sensor but not sure if it will be heated.

All will have a catalytic converter but not sure if its 3 way.

I guess the supercharger can be considered an emissions device since it helps burn fuel more efficiently. I like that the supercharger is being marketed that way.

What they don't mention is the Evaporative Control System or the ECU and wiring harness that's different. The ECU and harness are my main concern as far as power reduction goes.
