TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: YZ85 TRANSFORMED INTO A BIKE FOR A ZOMBIE MOVIE
“This jewel isn’t mine yet as I’m saving up recycling money to score it. Clean YZ80 with I few mods done for Zombie hunting. The ad says it was used in a Zombie movie so I’m guessing a big name movie star rode it in a blockbuster Zombie hunting/killing movie. As you can see a few mods are a RC51 radiator, oversized KLR fuel tank that’ll send this little screamer into 2025 before the next fill up and a big comfy seat. It’s a movie bike so the $700 is probably a smart investment. See you at the track after a few more trips to the recycling center.” –Ben. San Juan Capistrano.

THE HUGE 2023 YCF RANGE
MXA MINI TEST // PRO CIRCUIT 2022 KAWASAKI KX112 PIPE/SILENCER
With the Pro Circuit pipe and silencer, the KX112 dyno numbers jumped significantly from 8000 rpm to sign-off. The KX112 pulled stronger through the midrange to its 11,600-rpm peak where it hits 25.9 horsepower—1.5 horses stronger than stock. The Pro Circuit KX112 pipe and silencer also added more torque as well, bumping it to 11.9 pound-feet. The pipe is available in raw metal or a maintenance-free nickel-plated finish.
VERDICT: If you are a fast mini racer who wants to get the most out of his KX112 Supermini, Pro Circuit gives it to you.
DIGITS: $323.95 (platinum pipe), $171 95 (R-304 silencer)-www.procircuit.com or (951) 738-8050.
