1985 EXC 500 (expansion chamber help)

Recommended Posts

i have a 1985 exc 500 the bike is complete and runs like a raped ape!

im very interested in pulling this motor out of the frame and putting it in a newer sx frame,but the expansion chamber on this bike will cause clearence issues with the frame and fuel tank. Also is it even possible to put my motor in a sx frame without a linkage?....(because of sprocket being on the right side of bike)..would the chain clear the rear shock? what sx frames are the best for doing a swap like mine?

 

Is it possible to fit my bike with a new more modern 550sx expansion chamber?

are the years compatible? (if any..even to modify)

I ask cause i would love to do a crf to cr500 conversion,but that can be very pricy,i already have a good 500 motor that is strong as all hell,and would much rather do a swap with an sx steel frame,only if theres someone who could make me a different pipe? or if i could just purchase a 550 ktm pipe and modify it myself?IMG_5257.JPGIMG_5627.jpg

 

if anyone has any answers/help on my situation i would greatly appreciate it  

 

 

thanks, Max
