2011 Kawasaki KX 100 Features

  • Engine Features - The New Kawasaki KX 100 2011 utilizes a separate clutch cover on the engine’s right side for quick servicing without removing the water pump cover. Liquid-cooling assures even-running temperatures, consistent power output and greater reliability. Bridges between intake and exhaust ports are machine-finished for increased durability. Rotor utilizes rare-earth magnets-the unitized piece is small, light and more efficient; low inertial moment improves low-rpm response. Connecting rod big-end bearing has a more rigid cage for improved durability. Intake port shape and cylinder skirt allow cooling air into the crankcase chamber. Primary gear is secured using a lock-nut to help reduce mechanical noise. Metafoam gaskets for the generator and water pump covers improve sealing. KIPS system varies exhaust port height for increased horsepower and torque at all rpm. Produces a broad powerband with more low-end torque while retaining excellent top-end power. Breather in KIPS cover improves high-rpm and overrun performance. Crescent slide carburetor puts the needle closer to the intake ports for optimum throttle response and adjustable for various conditions.
  • Chassis Features - The New Kawasaki KX 100 2011 engine and chassis bolts feature rust-resistant coating. Wide, steel footpegs for better control and added strength. Thick footpeg brackets withstand today’s rigorous tracks. Aluminum upper tubes are 49.5mm in diameter for excellent control and steering response. Compression damping is 18-way adjustable.  Rear hub features two wheel bearings on the drive side for durability. Thick spokes are used in the front and rear for strength, and require less adjustment. Lightweight aluminum rims. The New Kawasaki KX 100 aggressive graphics compliment its black frame and wheels, just like the larger KX 2011 models.

    My friend and I did a motorcycle tour and it was awesome! Never did we had any issues with our trusted Kawasaki motorcycle. The people at Great Southern Motorcycles gave us a high quality, durable tire and made our trip a memorable ride.
