2014 Kawasaki KX85 and

Every budding motocross reaches a crossroads early in his or her where choosing the right can mean all the difference between and destiny. With more national championships than any brand, the Kawasaki KX™ pedigree already outshines its but for 2014 a new KX85 raises the bar than ever.

In fact, the one that hasn’t changed is the KX85 is still the ultimate tool for the Ryan Villopotos of Box-stock, it’s ready to win

The KX85‘s new more-powerful 85cc engine boasts numerous to increaseits already potent output by 20%, with low-end and mid-range torque. No the KX will nab more holeshots ever before, but the improved also makes it more for riders whose motocross are still in development. Other features, such as an advanced chassis package, 36mm fork up front with compression damping adjustability and a adjustable Uni-Trak® shock out provide excellent handling and superior tracking to tame the most challenging racetracks.

The engine bristles with and reliability-improving changes that are to keep it ahead of the pack. at the top, its cylinder head a smaller squish band a narrower angle and a shallower chamber for increased power, a new cylinder head gasket a 1mm increase in bore surface is held in place with an dowel pin to prevent detonation and engine reliability.

The KX’s Nikasil-plated cylinder also a larger exhaust port is optimally shaped for better improving peak power at open throttle. A new piston a longer piston pin improves while the piston’s new single-ring reduces cylinder wall for even better engine

All of this added power hand in hand with to improve the KX85’s factory-racer such as new carburetor jetting for its 28mm Keihin PWK carburetor, features a crescent-shaped slide positions the needle closer to the ports for optimized fuel and smoother fuel delivery the powerband. Further enhancing the mid-range and top-end power is a Kawasaki Integrated Power-valve (KIPS®) with new independent valvesfor each port replace the previous 3-piece reducing maintenance and further reliability.

More durability improvements can be in the KX’s crankshaft, which is now 2mm larger than the previous and features a precisely shaped block added to the crankshaft to the gap around the machined area the crank pin. The resin reduces the volume of the bottom-end to intake transfer. The result? A that not only boasts rigidity and durability but that helps to further increase to boot.

More power generates more heat, but the new radiator increases cooling by nearly 52% to improve engine and reduce the chance of engine during grueling motos.

The six-speed transmission delivers and positive shifting along extremedurability thanks to its hard shift fork ends, a base on the clutch basket and an additional bushing on the input

It takes a race-proven suspension to put all the KX85’s horsepower to the ground, and Uni-Trak® linkage equipped KYB shock and re-tuned inverted KYB forks are up to the task of tackling the motocross terrain. Just its big brothers, the KX85’s fork now shim-type valving and firmer for faster riders while offering superior bottoming but a wide range of adjustability it to be tailored for precise damping to fit a of riding styles as well as conditions. Out back, the new shock’s aluminum body is 150 grams while a new clicker-type adjuster fine-tuning the rear suspension quick and easy.

New petal-type improve the KX’s stopping too. The 220mm front and rear rotors deliver efficient braking performance the shape of the petals helps the brake padsa real in muddy conditions. The front hose is now routed behind the for better protection, and it also new hose guides that are like the guides on the big KX models.

The KX85 also wears new Geomax MX51 intermediate that provide optimal over varying terrain and conditions.

The KX85’s high-tensile perimeter frame is reinforced in key to maintain Kawasaki’s legendary traits and work in perfect with the more potent improved suspension and more brakes, but significant ergonomics and changes greatly improve the overall look and feel. Its tall seat height is lower than the previous to best fit a wide variety of inseams. More adjustability ever before is available on the thanks to a new wider and taller three-position handlebar risers and handlebar clamps that a total of six different handlebar to custom tailor rider for a comfortable fit.

Of course, if you anything but a KX85, the only you’re likely to see one at the track is it is standing still, and the KX’s new styling gives it a championship-winning even when it isparked. A new tank with a 20mm fuel cap, slim covers and side panels harmoniously with a new, two-tone seat that a seamless cover and gripper toexpand cockpit room and rider comfort.

A new angular fender, number plate and rear fender not only the big KX models, the front fender help to reduce mud accumulation, new wrap-around fork guards the inner fork tubes and Last but not least, a new brushedfinish on the swingarm matches the big KXs and helps the KX85 looking fresher

Completing its factory-racer styling, the is finished off in Kawasaki’s signature green with eye-catching appointments such as blue coatings on the adjusters and black coating on the rims, just Villopoto’s factory KX450F.
