Source for '79 Honda XR500 engine parts?

Recommended Posts

 

My cousin Bill has bought a Knight-framed XR500 dirt-track racer. While freshening the engine, he's found a number of things that need to be replaced (cam chain, cam chain guide, valves, valve guides). None of it is available from Honda as far as I can tell. Kibblewhite has valve guides, but not valves for the '79-'82 models. I've found cam chains on eBay. Are there any other parts sources that y'all can recommend?

I have a local guy who makes me custom stainless (or titanium) race valves. Camchain should be no issue, just need to find type,size and length. probably used on other bikes. Chain guide could be a problem though. Cams are easy as long as core is good and possibly megacycle has billet or needle bearing billet.

checked on flea bay and chain is available along with used tensioners. New tensioner is probably available thru CMSNL if you feel like spending some bucks
