ENGINE

  • Potent YPVS Two-Stroke Engine
    The 85cc liquid-cooled, two-stroke engine features the Yamaha Power Valve System for broad, tractable power across the rev range without losing peak power at high rpm—improving driveability and reducing the need for frequent shifting.
  • Tuned Crankcase and Intake
    The crankcase design features a spacer-style reed valve intake for improved gas flow, which inhales through a 28mm Keihin® flat-slide carburetor for seamless throttle response.
  • Tuned Expansion Chamber
    Carefully matched to suit the YPVS engine, the exhaust expansion chamber optimizes gas flow for enhanced power delivery, especially in the low- and mid-range.
  • Durable Transmission
    The transmission features oversized gears to provide enhanced gear engagement and smoother shifts.
  • High Capacity Radiator
    Lightweight radiator has large cores and louvers, and the water pump features a cast aluminum (vs. resin) impeller for maximum cooling efficiency.
  • High-Flow Airbox
    Airbox design ensures excellent air cleaning performance and easy maintenance.

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

  • Fully-Adjustable Fork
    The lightweight 36mm KYB® inverted cartridge fork features 10.8 inches of travel with compression and rebound damping adjustability. Complete with low-friction outer tubes and internals, the damping settings offer enhanced performance across a range of conditions and rider abilities.
  • Fully-Adjustable Shock
    Rear suspension features fully adjustable Kayaba® link-type shock with 11.1 inches of travel and race-tested compression valving. The progressive linkage-type design improves bottoming resistance, allowing racers to charge harder and improve lap times.

  • Lightweight Wheels
    Lightweight 17-inch front and 14-inch rear rims are durable and reduce unsprung weight for optimal suspension performance.
  • High Performance Tires
    Dunlop® MX3S® knobbies provide exceptional traction on a variety of tracks and terrain.
