KAWASAKI KFX80 YOUTH MODEL ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE
A step up for growing ATV riders

Kawasaki Motor Corp.As children grow taller and stronger, they need an all-terrain vehicle capable of handling their rapidly improving riding skills. The Kawasaki KFX80 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 unauthorized use.
