Split-second decisions made by anything less than commonsense ultimately, and always, results with an abrupt introduction to the unflinching laws of physics. Discovering where commonsense ends and recklessness begins can often be painful though, which is why learning to ride off-road, sans traffic and asphalt, is the ideal means to initiate an understanding of two wheel boundaries.

For the serious mini racer and future Arenacross champion the Yamaha YZ85 is the last rung in their education before moving into full-grown motorcycles. The YZ85 is ready to race right out of the crate and features a high performance, 85cc 2-stroke engine that provides legendary Yamaha durability. It also features a liquid-cooled six speed close-ratio transmission that is light and compact with a rigid single-backbone, semi-double-cradle frame. The broad handlebar and flat fuel tank, radiator shrouds, side panels and rear fender provide the rider the control and the freedom to move around and weight transfer.

Another important lesson to take hold of early is that by simply swapping the factory installed air filter with a K&N YA-8502 washable and reusable motorcycle air filter, you'll be assuring your YZ85 motorcycle is getting outstanding levels of engine protection and performance, in the harsh off-road environment. The secret to their success lies in the exclusive characteristics of the filter medium, which was originally developed by K&N all those years ago in the off-road dust of desert and motocross racing.

K&N's YA-8502 reusable air filter is engineered to increase power and torque, and the unique oiled cotton gauze filter medium, layered between two sheets of aluminum wire mesh, is how that's accomplished. This thoroughly tested and proven replacement filter provides outstanding filtration and exceptional air flow to help optimize performance, and to keep your YZ85 engine running clean for a very long time.

The YA-8502 can hold a huge amount of dirt before cleaning is required. The length of riding time between servicing depends on your particular off-road riding circumstances. When it is time for servicing K&N recommends a Recharger Filter Service Kit, which contains industrial strength air filter cleaner and air filter oil. Using the K&N Recharger® Kit can restore the air flow and cleaning efficiency of your K&N air filter to perform like new with every cleaning, for many years of off-road riding.
