 Manufacturer  Kawasaki  Kawasaki
 Model Year  2012  2012
 Model  KLX™140  KLX™140
 Key Features
  144 cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine is simple to operate and to maintain
  Close-ratio transmission makes optimum use of the engine’s power
  Progressive manual clutch offers young riders the chance to master clutch engagement and gear shifting
  Keyless electric starting via a starter button on the handlebar; an LED indicates when the power button is on to help prevent accidental battery drain
  Front 220 mm petal disc and large-bore 27 mm twin-piston caliper (same size as those on the KX450F/250F) for strong and easy-to-control braking
  Quiet muffler is equipped with a USFS-approved spark arrester, meaning the KLX140L can access designated public off-road riding areas
 144 cc Air-cooled, Single-cylinder Engine
  Reliable and easy-to-use lightweight engine is simple to operate and maintain
  Engine revs easily and allows riders to use the engine’s full rpm range up to the rev limiter at 10,500 rpm
  Exhaust pipe is curved to achieve optimum length for good power characteristics
  Quiet muffler is equipped with a USFS-approved spark arrester, meaning the KLX140 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
  Keyless electric starting via handlebar-mounted button
  Orange LED light activates when the power button is depressed, indicating that power is “ON” to help prevent accidental battery drain
  Digital CDI ignition helps ensure quick, reliable starts
 Carburetor
  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, while 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 material is rubber instead of plastic
 Close-ratio Transmission
  Close gear ratios help the acceleration performance of the KLX
  Shift lever features a ball bearing design for easy shifting like KX™ models, and has a folding tip for reduced crash damage
 Progressive Manual Clutch
  Manual clutch offers young riders the chance to master clutch engagement and gear shifting
  Spring damper in the clutch provides a 2-stage engagement that permits half-clutch use when riding at extremely low rpm or idling speeds, and helps provide better clutch feel and durability
 Box-section Perimeter Frame
  Ready for the off-road abuse, the highly rigid, KX-inspired high-tensile steel perimeter frame uses the same upper tubes as the high-performance KLX250S
  Aluminum swingarm is lightweight, strong and features a hairline finish just like the KX machines
  KX-style chain adjusters allow precise chain adjustment
 Superior Suspension
  33 mm telescopic fork has spring rates and damping settings specific to each model
  KLX140 rear shock features 5-way preload adjustability
  More advanced KLX140L rear shock and reservoir can be mounted on the KLX140 for faster riders
 KX-style Wheels
  Strong, high-grade die-cast hubs offer the same durability as those on the KX models
  Durable, lightweight RK EXCEL aluminum rims are featured on the KLX’s 17 / 14 in. front / rear wheels
 Petal Disc Brakes Front and Rear
  Front 220 mm petal disc and large-bore 27 mm twin-piston caliper (same size as those on the KX450F/250F) offer strong and easy-to-control braking
  Rear brake uses a 186 mm petal disc gripped by a 27 mm single-piston caliper
  Rear brake master cylinder features a large-volume, unitized reservoir that contributes to stable braking and helps ensure sufficient fluid pressure, even when the brake pad wears down
  The wave shape of the petal discs help clean the brake pads for more efficient braking performance and reduce unsprung weight
 Ergonomics
  Flat-shaped box-section of frame, long footpegs mounted close to the bikes’ centerline and no kick-start lever combine to offer riders a good grip on the bike and thusly a higher level of machine control
  Footpeg / frame relationship is modeled after the KX models for maximum leg grip
  Handlebar is rubber-mounted to reduce vibration transferred to the rider’s hands
  2-piece upper triple clamp and handle clamp allow easy aftermarket handlebar installation
  Raised pattern on half of the handgrip surface improves rider grip and comfort
  2-tone seat cover has a slip-resistant top surface for improved grip and smooth sides for excellent rider mobility when standing
 Sharp, Aggressive Bodywork Styling
  Box-section perimeter frame features advanced styling similar to that of the KX racers
  2-piece shrouds with ventilation holes inspired by the top-of-the-line KX race machines
  Fuel tank cover provides a smooth 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 that’s cooler to the touch than steel
