I just sold a 02 KX500 frame with a Jersey title, was it you that bought it? My 02 500 in a 04 KX250 hybrid is titled. It may get a very basic dualsport kit. What are you using to power the lights? Post up some pics!

yeah this would be your old frame. all of the other parts are off of a 98 kx 500. ill have some photos i hope by this weekend. the frame is at the powder coater now getting hydro diped to look like carbonfiber. im hoping it tuns out nice . ill post the lighting coil i have for it to night . i hope its enuff to run the lights . ill most likely run all led lights on the bike so that should help with the power demand. i dint have any problems at all putting the title in my name. thanks alot for selling it. it killed me to have to sell my 2001 kx500 that was taged.

I was wondering what happened with it! Good to see the frame all cleaned up and put to good use. My KX500SF project stalled over the last year also. Hopefully it'll be up by late spring or sometime this summer.

How do they do the carbon look on the frame? Thats buzzing me out. Y did you only do half the frame? The head stock would have looked cool as with the carbon effect.

the frame was done with water transfer . my friend owns the powder coat shop that does it . he talked me into 2 toning it trying to get the look like the carbonfiber is under the green. to bad he let me put the powder primer on . i baked it to long and cured the primer to much . so i had to strip it all off last week. not easy to do at all . so now that im in a hurry to finnish the bike i made the frame all green. ill be doing my spare swing arm in carbonfiber or sculls as soon as he gets a little slow or i get time to go over at night .

Livin mah dream. I don't really have any dreams of SM or anything, I just want to use my KX500 to mess with the street bike people. Especially all these old guys out here on straight pipe harleys. Lemme know how it feels lol.

Are titled street legal frames common? or did you have to hunt for ages? It never went click in my head that I could just get a frame. I was thinking a whole nother bike.

Just started back up on my 500 project. Got the grinding and clean up just about done on the 04 250 frame. I have to make up some new motor mounts and hopefully have the welding done next weekend. My girlfriend is going to lace up a 18" wheel for it. I got a lighting coil for it over the winter. Just have to get a big tank for it. Im hoping to have it ready by memorial day weekend. Your bike is looking good! I have a few leftover parts from that 500 if your interested. Radiators, skid plate and some works connection frame guards.

      I have a problem with my stage 2 exhaust cam on my rmz whenever I kick it over the exhaust cam likes to stop at the lift unless I put it at tdc or kick it really slow it runs fine when it starts and I have played around with the shims right now all the valves are shimed and I have checked the timing everything’s to spec it just gets stuck at the exhuast I’m pretty sure it’s something to do with too much compression I probally will end upbuying stock cams but wanted to see if anyone knows how to fix this first

      I recently acquired a 1990 KDX200. The bike runs reasonably well for it's age. The first ride over 30 min the gearbox oil started overflowing into the airbox (overflow hose is routed to airbox). The oil that overflowed and the oil in the gearbox are an odd shade of dark forest green. The oil appeared to be overfilled slightly which explains the overflow. What I don't understand is the weird dark blueish greenish gray color of the oil.  I believe the PO used motul 10w40 ester gearbox oil because he gave me a half used gallon. I use Motul 710 2t oil which is blue, and run green coolant in the radiator. I drained the gearbox oil and there was a nice little clump of dark gray metalic paste on the magnetic drain plug, which should explain the gray hue. What I do not understand is the greenish blue hue. Anyone know what in the heck is going on with this old horse?
      The pic shows a sample of my drained oil. When held up to the light it turns more of a green color. Oil still feels slick as can be.

      will a clutch basket from a 98kx250 fit a 96kx250? How about the carb also?

      I have a new cylinder that i bought to rebuild my 1993 kawasaki kx250 with, because the old cylinder was destroyed. The guy said the cylinder is overbored a little but never gave us numbers. The new one i bought came with a piston thats been used and i would like to replace. I believe the piston that came with the cylinder is the correct size, but it very well could be off and i have no way of knowing. So how do i properly measure the cylinder bore, and how do i use this measurement to find what size piston I need to get?
       
      thanks,
      Kaelan
