FEATURES & BENEFITS

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. 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.

Refined Swingarm Design
The YZ85’s modern swingarm features a composite chain guide as well as push-style chain adjusters like the YZ125 for easier maintenance.

Lightweight Subframe
Compact rear subframe is removable for simplified servicing.

Large-Diameter Brakes
Big wave-style brake discs offer improved self-cleaning and cooler running performance. The 220mm front disc and 190mm rear disc deliver strong, precise stopping power.

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.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Adjustable Rider Ergonomics
