The automatic transmission means there’s no clutch to adjust, and the air filter can be inspected and cleaned without the need for any tools.
- Engine Limiter and Tether Switch
To help young beginners grow into accomplished ATV riders, the YFZ50 includes a two-stage rpm limiter as well as a throttle limiter to restrict the engine’s performance and adapt to the rider’s advancing skill levels. A tethered switch allows parents to closely monitor new riders and cut power to the engine, if necessary, as new riders learn the basics of ATV control.
