Liquid-cooled Engine
  • Even-running temperatures provide consistent power output
  • Lightweight Electrofusion-coated cylinder improves heat transfer while resisting abrasion and seizure
  • Bridges between intake and exhaust ports are machine finished for less wear and improved reliability
  • Magneto with lower inertial moment improves low-rpm response
  • Rotor comes with rare-earth magnets –the unitized piece is small, light and more efficient
  • Connecting rod big-end bearing has more rigid cage for improved durability
  • Intake port shape and revised 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
Kawasaki Integrated Power Valve System (KIPS®)
  • KIPS system varies exhaust-port height for increased horsepower and torque at all rpm's
  • 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
Clutch
  • Thick base clutch hub rides on needle bearings for smooth action
  • Large clutch plates are 119mm in diameter for 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
Six-speed Transmission
  • The fifth and sixth gears on the input shaft ride on bushings for added reliability
  • Positive shifting action and rugged durability
  • Shift forks are hard chrome finished to resist wear and seizing
  • Convenient oil level window
  • Bushings on the second, third and fourth gears on the output shaft increase durability
28mm Keihin PWK carburetor
  • Large crescent slide carburetor positions the needle closer to intake ports for excellent throttle response and improves power
  • Adjustable for various conditions
Airbox
  • Large right-side cutout improves airflow for increased power
  • Reusable foam air filter
Exhaust System
  • Features large-diameter O-ring and groove on exhaust pipe for improved durability and easy installation
  • Aluminum silencer is re-packable like larger KX models
High-tensile Steel Perimeter Frame
  • Wide footpegs for better control, made of cast steel for strength
  • Thick footpeg mounting brackets withstand today's rigorous tracks
  • Engine and chassis bolts have rust-resistant coating
Fuel Tank
  • Gas tank design lowers center of gravity for improved handling
UNI-TRAK® Rear Suspension
  • The swingarm uses large cross-section beams for improved rigidity and control
  • Cast-aluminum drive chain adjuster sections for easy chain adjustments
  • Shock is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping and spring preload
36mm Inverted Cartridge Fork
  • nverted forks are 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
Front and Rear Disc Brakes
  • Front brake lever shape offers better feel
  • Forged-aluminum rear brake pedal is strong, lightweight and features two seals at the pivot for smooth operation and increased durability
  • Strong braking power is achieved with minimal effort
Front and Rear Wheels
  • Rear hub features two wheel bearings on the drive side of the hub for durability
  • Rear-axle diameter is large for more rigidity
Graphics
  • Aggressive Kawasaki Lime Green and Black graphics just like larger KX models
