    144 CC Air Cooled, Single-Cylinder Engine
    • Reliable and easy to use lightweight engine is both simple to operate and to maintain
    • Bore and stroke of 58.0 x 54.4mm
    • Engine revs easily and allows riders to use the full rpm range of the engine up to the rev limiter at 10,500 rpm
    • Exhaust pipe is curved to achieve optimum length for good power character yet remain unobtrusive
    • Quiet muffler is equipped with a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrester, meaning the KLX140L can access designated public off-road riding areas
    • Oil-moistened air-filter is washable, reusable, easily accessed and highly effective in dusty situations
    Electric Start
    • Starting is via a (keyless) electric starter button on the handlebar
    • Orange LED light activates when the power button is depressed, indicating that power is “ON”
    • Digital CDI ignition helps ensure quick, reliable starting
    • Oval piston-valve Keihin PB20 carburetor features several Kawasaki-original modifications to provide stable fuel delivery under rough off-road conditions
    • Partitions in the float chamber keep the fuel from sloshing excessively and an umbrella around the main jet traps fuel when jumping
    • Dual air vents help provide a stable fuel supply and eliminate hesitation, even when the bike is at extreme lean angles
    • Needle valve is suspended on a spring which acts like a shock absorber
    • Float is rubber instead of plastic
    Cose-ratio Transmission
    • Close gear ratios help the acceleration performance of the KLX
    • Like the KX trade; models, the shift lever features a ball bearing to ease shifting and has a folding tip for less damage in a crash
    Progressive Manual Clutch
    • Manual clutch offers young riders the chance to master clutch engagement and gear shifting
    • A spring damper in the clutch gives it a two-stage engagement that permits half-clutch use when riding at extremely low rpm or idling speeds and helps provide direct clutch feel and better durability
    Box-section Perimeter Frame
    • Ready for the off-road abuse, the highly rigid, KX-inspired high-tensile steel perimeter frame also uses the same upper tubes as the KLX250S
    • Aluminum swingarm offers light weight, strength and a hairline finish like on the KX machines
    • KX-style chain adjusters allow precise adjustment of the chain
    Superior Suspension
    • 33mm telescopic front fork has spring rates and damping settings specific to each model
    • Intended for a higher average speed, the KLX140L features a rear shock with piggyback reservoir with fully adjustable preload, 4-way compression damping and 22-way rebound damping
    KX-style Wheels
    • Strong, high-grade die-cast hubs that offer the same durability as those found on the KX
    • Durable, lightweight RK EXCEL aluminum rims on the 19/16-inch front/rear wheels
    Petal Disc Brakes Front and Rear
    • Front 220mm petal disc and large-bore 27mm twin-piston caliper (same size as those on the KX450F/250F) for strong and easy-to-control braking
    • Rear brake uses a 186mm petal disc gripped by a 27mm single-piston caliper
    • Rear brake master cylinder features a large-volume, unitized reservoir that contributes to stable braking and helps ensure sufficient fluid pressure is maintained, even when the brake pad wears down
    • In addition to helping reduce unsprung weight, the wave shapes of the petal discs help clean the brake pads for more efficient braking performance
    • Combination of the flat surface of the frame's box-section, long footpegs mounted close to the bikes' centerline and no kick-start lever add up to good grip and a high level of machine control available to the rider
    • Footpeg/frame relationship is modeled after the KX for maximum leg grip
    • Handlebar is rubber-mounted for reduced vibration transferred to the rider's hands
    • Two-piece upper triple clamp and handle clamp fosters easy aftermarket handlebar installation
    • Raised pattern on half of the surface of the grips just like the top-class MX racers
    • Two-tone seat cover has a slip-resistant top surface for good grip when seated and smooth sides for excellent rider mobility when standing
    Sharp, Aggressive Bodywork Styling
    • Box-section perimeter frame, with advanced styling similar to that found on the KX racers
    • Two-piece shrouds with ventilation holes inspired by the top-of-the-line KX race machines
    • Fuel tank cover provides a flush transition from tank to shroud, and contributes to the high level fit and finish
    • Eye-catching box muffler design protrudes as little as possible from behind the side cover, and features a plastic muffler end-cap that offers a surface cooler to the touch than steel
