what would you do with a KX500 motor?

I was able to get my hands on a motor that needs some love but it should be fun to get her ripping up mint,

 

there is a cheap 05 rmz rolling chassis that is in mint condition I could put it in,

 

or I was thinking a super moto or on/off road bike, (I would love to hear it on the road)

 

what are some cool projects that you have seen with a kx500 motor? :thumbsup:

A buddy of mine (I'm Cali) put one if this engines in a shifter cart, then when the chassi snapped on that from sheer power, he put the engine into a lawn tractor (lots and lots of fabricating). The projects took time, but the end results were priceless. If you have a welder and blow torch, you have an endless field of things to choose from. I'd make the enzyme street legal and drop the 500 in it in an instant. Good luck with your project man!!! :D

Lawn mower? How about...super edger?

I've seen a 2007-2010 KTM 250 or 450Fs with KX 500 motors in them. Great chassis and brakes, easy to re-work steel over aluminum for motor mounts.

My buddy has one, has it in a race kart. His family's huge into go karts. The things pretty cool. I rode it once, you can't go out of second gear or you'll just spin the rear wheels...
