2011 Kawasaki KX 85 Features
- Engine Features - The New Kawasaki KX 85 lightweight electrofusion-coated cylinder improves heat transfer while resisting abrasion and seizure. Intake and exhaust port bridges are machine-finished for reduced wear and improved reliability. Liquid-cooling means even-running temperatures and consistent power output. Rotor comes with rare-earth magnets, the unitized piece is small, light and more efficient and low inertial moment improves low-rpm response. Connecting rod big-end bearing has 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 and mid-range, while retaining excellent top-end power. Breather in KIPS cover improves high-rpm and overrun performance. Large crescent slide positions the needle closer to intake ports for ideal fuel atomization, providing quicker throttle response and a smoother power delivery. Thick-base clutch hub rides on needle bearings for smooth action. Large, 119mm clutch plates add durability and control. Clutch-release lever ratio is designed for light clutch lever action. Clutch plate service cover simplifies maintenance and utilizes a metal-carbon composite gasket.
- Chassis Features - The New Kawasaki KX 85 is wide, steel footpegs offer added control and strength. Thick footpeg-mount brackets withstand today’s rigorous tracks. Engine and chassis bolts feature rust-resistant coating. Fuel tank design lowers center of gravity for improved handling. Inverted fork is rigid, providing better steering response and control. Compression damping is 18-way adjustable. Aluminum upper fork tubes measure 49.5mm in diameter for flex-free performance. Swingarm uses large cross-section beams for improved rigidity and control. Cast-aluminum drive chain adjuster sections allow easy chain adjustments. Shock is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping and spring preload. Black-coated lightweight aluminum rims offer a factory look. Rear hub features two bearings on the drive side for added durability. Large rear-axle diameter for optimum rigidity. Aggressive 2011 Kawasaki KX 85 graphics complement the black frame and wheels.
