My dealer sold me ATV/UTV Kawasaki oil part #K 61021-204,
I wanted Kawasaki Motorcycle oil PART #K 61021-302.
They said it's the same.
I put it in my 2 Kawasaki Vulcan bikes.
I called Kawasaki consumer hot line, JUDY, did not have a clue about my question, asked for her supervisor,
Nate, he said he would use it in his motorcycle.
Called the dealer in Flemington ,NJ, Said it's not their problem, bring it back and they will exchange the oil ( Unopened)
I'm dumping this stuff with 200 miles on it I will feel safer.
Now to find a dealer to sell me the correct product.
The dealer called the dealer hot line their answer it's ok in my engines.
Then why does Kawasaki make two different oils applications oil?

More info, first ATV/UTV Kawasaki oil CJ-4 SPEC, Our bikes are not diesels

CJ-4 oils may have a different fresh oil chemical profile from previous oils because one of the key requirements of the API CJ-4 category is the setting of maximum limits on the phosphorus, sulfur and sulfated ash content of oils. These limits are needed to protect the new 2007 advanced emission control technologies. Users should seek guidance from their oil supplier and/or engine or vehicle manufacturer regarding any changes to used oil analysis programs for API CJ-4 oils.

What is SAPS?
SAPS stands for sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur. They comprise a significant portion of a motor oil’s additive content. Sulfated ash is not added to oil; it is the result of additives in the oil burning and creating ash. The additives that can produce ash are most commonly used for total base number (TBN), but also help in other areas, like antioxidancy, anti-wear, cleanliness and soot handling. Phosphorus provides anti-wear properties and further antioxidancy, while sulfur contributes antioxidancy, anti-wear properties and engine cleanliness.
