KAWASAKI KFX®80 YOUTH MODEL
A step up for growing ATV riders
children grow taller and stronger, they need an
all-terrain vehicle capable of handling their rapidly
improving riding skills. The Kawasaki KFX®80 is
the natural step up from the KFX50, and offers the
fun and performance children want as well as important
safety features parents demand.
The KFX80 ATV is designed for riders
ages 12 and older, and is powered by an 82cc two-stroke
engine that features automatic oil injection, eliminating
the need to premix fuel. It also features forced-air
cooling to maintain optimum operating temperatures.
It is matched to a continuously variable automatic
transmission and shaft final drive, so no shifting
is required. To assist beginning riders with their
learning curve, it also features a removable power
limiter and a throttle limiting screw that can be
adjusted as rider skills increase.
Other features include electric
start and a sealed battery, dependable CDI ignition,
and snorkel air intake that permits the KFX80 to
draw fresh air from near the steering head assembly.
An added safety feature is the electric start interlock
that requires the parking brake to be applied in
order to start the engine. Plus, the KFX80 features
a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor.
The chassis of the KFX80 ATV is
made of sturdy steel tubing and rides on a single
A-arm front suspension with dual shocks and a rear
swingarm with a single shock. Stopping power is
provided by durable front and rear drum brakes.
The KFX80 has a 1.6-gallon fuel tank for extended
riding, and a keyed ignition system helps prevent
