Power
I have a proto-type fule injection on my bike, so u can imagine the power.Many hings on it are top-of-the-line.
Suspension
My top-of-the-line suspension is great.
Brakes
Yet again a top-of-the-line, but great.
Comments

Power
Huge power for an 85. The powerband is short but it hits really hard and there's lots of gears to choose from. It likes high rpm's.
The front wheel claws at the sky in 1st 2nd and 3rd gear.
Suspension
Perfect, I weight 165. You HAVE to mess with the suspension to get this bike to handle the way you want, not a big deal though, it's all in the owners manual.
After setting the sag I tuned the suspension on the track.
I jumped this little bike over HUGE jumps all day and never bottomed out. Awsome bike!
Brakes

The brakes, they work. I think thats a good thing. Even with my heavy ass hanging off of it.
Comments
This bike will hang with most anything your brave enough to tackel. Remember, it's and 85cc and not a 250 and you'll have one hell of a good time. Even you big kids.
I LOVE my little KX.. If you wipe out, you don't fall as far either.
Forget that 4 stroke XR, get the KX man..

Power
exellent power, climbs very good, wheelies very easily, powervalve makes a huge difference, smooth all the way.
Suspension
the setup for setting is very easy and is exellent on both trails and jumps. front is nice and smooth, back can be set to your liking.
Brakes
stops on a dime, powersliding done easy fron is very responsive and sensitive. do not pull to hard unless pulling a stoppie!
Comments
