Overview

Description

For more than 30 years, Kawasaki’s smallest KX™ motocrosser has played a key role in the sport of motocross, providing a race-winning platform on which countless national and supercross champions have begun the journey to superstar status. Today, Kawasaki’s KX™65 maintains the same successful attributes, including a powerful and reliable two-stroke engine, lightweight chassis, disc brakes and long travel suspension. Its reputation as the quintessential learning tool for young racers taking their first steps into the world of competitive riding is well deserved.





At A Glance…

• 64cc two-stroke engine with digital ignition offers ideal timing for better throttle response throughout the rev range

• An electrofusion-coated cylinder with advanced exhaust and transfer ports for increased power and performance at higher rpm

• Six-speed transmission offers positive action and rugged durability; hard chrome-finished shift fork ends resist wear

• High-tensile steel frame offers exceptional torsional rigidity for excellent handling with a reinforced down tube for increased strength and durability

• Uni-Trak® rear suspension offers progressively increasing spring and damping strength as the suspension compresses for a more controlled ride

• Front and rear disc brakes are light, powerful and resist fading

• Industry-leading amateur racing support through Team Green™





64cc Two-stroke Engine

• Digital ignition offers ideal timing for optimum throttle response throughout the rev range

• Ignition rotor features rare-earth magnets, making it smaller, lighter and more durable. Its low inertial moment improves low-RPM response

• High capacity ignition coil delivers a higher secondary voltage for a hotter spark, and the punchier response improves acceleration

• Connecting rod big-end bearing features a cage for added durability

• Primary gear is secured using a lock-nut to help reduce mechanical noise

• The oil seal of the left crankcase has a stopper for increased engine reliability

• Metafoam gaskets are used for the generator cover, water pump cover and water pump elbow for improved sealing

• Silver clutch and ignition covers resist the signs of boot rub to help keep the KX looking fresh, longer





Electrofusion Cylinder

• Electrofusion coating on the aluminum cylinder walls improves heat transfer for consistent power output

• Allows closer piston-to-cylinder clearances for more power

• Provides excellent wear and seizing resistance

• Advanced exhaust and transfer ports increase power and performance at higher rpm

• Bridge between exhaust ports is machined for increased reliability and resistance to wear and seizure

• Lightweight cylinder liner transfers heat efficiently for cooler running





Liquid Cooling

• Large radiator provides more consistent engine temperatures, keeping power output strong throughout the moto

• Cooling system offers greater reliability and less engine wear





24mm Mikuni Carburetor

• Feeds a four-petal reed valve for excellent throttle response

• Allows the engine to produce more power and torque at all RPM





Six-speed Transmission

• Positive action and rugged durability

• Hard chrome-finished shift-fork ends resist wear

• Manual clutch mechanism mirrors larger KX models

• Clutch cover gasket made of metal-carbon composite material





High-tensile Steel Frame

• Exceptional torsional rigidity for excellent handling

• Reinforced downtube adds strength and durability

• Engine and chassis bolts feature rust-resistant coating





Front Fork

• Four-position rebound-damping adjustment accommodates different riding styles and terrain





Uni-Trak® Rear Suspension

• Rising-rate action allows a more controlled ride as the suspension compresses





Nitrogen-charged Shock

• Four-way adjustable rebound damping offers a variety of settings for various track conditions

• External reservoir helps maintain consistent damping

• Re-buildable aluminum body





Swingarm

• Forged aluminum rocker arm reduces weight and improves durability





Front and Rear Disc Brakes

• Light and powerful

• Ergonomic front brake lever shape offers better feel

• Resists fading

• Requires less lever pressure





Lightweight Aluminum Rims

• Black aluminum rims provide the same aggressive look as the rims on larger KX models

• Reduces unsprung weight for improved suspension action





Detachable Aluminum Silencer

• Silencer is removable and packing is replaceable

• Oval shape mimics the styling of larger-displacement KX models
