The first step on the bLU cRU ladder has been sensationally catered for by the recently released YZ65. Now riders moving up from that first step will be treated to an all new YZ85/LW.
The 2019 junior MX race model is all new from the ground up - and the winnign two-stroke is now fitted with Yamaha's (YPVS) power valve system to improve performance. Plus many of the new YZ85 parts are interchangeable with the smaller YZ65, making the step up even less hassle for your young gun's mechanic and sponsor also known as mum and dad.
YZ85 is all new for 2019 and features many common parts with YZ65 making bLU cRU the smart choice for riders and maintainers
Even though the outgoing model won the 2018 Australian Junior National title, the new 2019 YZ85 is now fitted with a new engine complete with revised intake, exhaust and transmission. And new front forks, new swingarm, new wave-style brake rotors, adjustable ergonomics and more - ready to win races straight off the dealership floor.
All-new YPVS two-stroke
The 85cc liquid-cooled, two-stroke engine now features the Yamaha Power Valve System for broad, tractable power across the rev range without losing peak power at high rpm ‰ÛÓ _improving driveability and reducing the need for frequent shifting. And a new head and longer connecting rod design work together to boost compression ratio for enhanced power output.
New crankcase and intake
A new crankcase design features a spacer-style reed valve intake for improved gas flow, which inhales through a 28mm Keihinå¨ flat-slide carburettor for seamless throttle response.
New expansion chamber
Matched to the improved output of the YPVS engine, the new expansion chamber optimises exhaust gas flow for enhanced power delivery, especially in the low- and mid-range.
Revised for 2019, the transmission increases the width of selected 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.
Airbox design ensures excellent air cleaning performance and easy maintenance.
Fully adjustable fork
Lightweight 36mm KYB inverted cartridge fork features 274mm of travel with compression and rebound damping adjustability with low-friction outer tubes and internals. For 2019, one-piece outer tubes and new settings offer enhanced performance across a range of conditions and rider abilities. New lower fork guards provide protection and modern styling.
