The 2009 Kawasaki Eliminator is powered by a peppy four-stroke, air-cooled, single overhead cam engine with 124cc of displacement. Fuel is controlled by a 28mm Mikuni BS28 carburetor, providing direct throttle response and fantastic fuel economy. The small yet roomy gas tank holds 3.4 gallons of gas. The lightweight engine is specially tuned for low-end and mid-range torque, making the 2009 Eliminator perfect for urban riding. Maintenance is minimized due in part to the automatic cam chain tensioner for pinpoint cam timing. The electronic ignition has very few moving parts, requiring no periodic adjustments, and giving the rider worry-free starting in all types of climates.
