87 KX500 tuning

Recommended Posts

hey all, me and my dad finally put out kx500 on the road after a long and hard restoration. to be fair it is extremely fun to ride but it seems to lack power. ive seen countless write-ups and videos of them tearing up everything that stands in their way, yet ours seems to struggle and run out of revs. the wheen lifts only about a foot off the ground in 2nd in the powerband and then runs out of guts. is this right? what can i do to test what needs tuning? also what can i do to tune it?

thanks for reading
