2006 KAWASAKI KFX80 YOUTH MODEL
BUILT FOR ASPIRING NEW RIDERS
young riders grow taller and stronger, and outgrow
their beloved KFX®50 all-terrain vehicle (ATV),
the Kawasaki KFX80 is waiting in the wings to provide
them with the fun and performance they want – and
the safety features parents appreciate.
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 with lightweight chain 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 skill increases.
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.

As with all off-highway vehicle
recreation, Kawasaki encourages ATV riders to ride
responsibly and to respect the environment. Kawasaki
will pay first-time buyers of a new Kawasaki ATV
$100 for completing an ATV rider safety course conducted
by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). Interested consumers
can call ASI toll-free at 800-887-2887.
