2001 Kawasaki KX 65 Fluid Specsby Giovanni BadalamentiUpdated October 25, 2017
Kawasaki Motors Corporation USA manufactures motocross bikes, small engines, watercraft, ATVs, and utility vehicles. Their first motocross bikes were small two-strokes sold under the brand name Omega. U.S. riders craved more power and excitement, so the engineers designed a pair of potent rotary valve twins called the Samurai and Avenger.
The liquid-cooled KX65 engine requires 0.4 L of a 50/50 coolant and water mixture. The large radiator assures an even temperature control, which ensures consistently strong power output.
The service manual explains that the KX65's six-speed transmission holds 0.5L of transmission fluid.
The 64.7 cc, two-stroke engine holds 0.6L of class SE, SF or SG 10W30 viscosity oil and 1.0 gallon of unleaded fuel.
