    2000 Kawasaki KX 500

    I'm moving...so yeah I am going to sell it to fund moving costs. There's always motorcycles. I have had more bikes then I can count with my 10 fingers in my 21 years alive.

    2000 Kawasaki KX 500 Countershaft Seal

    Thanks. Already ordered all of those parts.
  3. Can you guys shed some light on what all is involved on changing a countershaft seal on this bike? I am really mechanical but have never done this. The oil is seeping out really bad in that area. Thanks, Alex

    2000 Kawasaki KX 500

    Just bought a 2000 Kawasaki KX 500. Low hours, came with an oversize Clarke tank and a paddle tire. I love it, doesn't vibrate like read about.

    Kx500 range

    I believe it will be mostly woods. Thinking I might look at a 3.5 gallon gas tank.

    Kx500 range

    I am going test ride a 2000 kx500 on Sunday. I'm wondering if this bike can last a 90 minute harescramble. Or do I need an oversize tank. Alex
  9. So I am 21, have been on vintage bikes for 17 years. I am looking to pick up a late 90's and newer bike for harescrambles, motocross, and dunes. I am 6' tall, 235 pounds. I am looking at 250 2 strokes, kx500's, and yz426f's, 450 4 strokes. Reason for the 426 is the price. I want to spend about 2500. Basically my big question about the 4 strokes is do I need to worry about the price being too good to be true and the current owner wanting to unload it because it is about to blow up. I am not familiar with 450 prices. With the kx500 the issue would be vibration. I hear a lot of complaining about that. But it makes me wonder if any of them have raced a 1973 Triumph 500cc single. haha Here are some of those 4 strokes I am wondering about the condition of internally. http://bend.craigslist.org/mcy/3608580283.html http://bend.craigslist.org/mcy/3561365021.html Alex

    1974 xl250 motocross machine?

    There is a guy who races sportsman 250 intermediate in the AHRMA NW scene. He rides an xl250 with a 278 kit. He is very competitive. I race from time to time a Husky 125 with a honda sl125 engine with a 150cc bore kit, and a cam. This bike is plenty competitive in classic 125 intermediate. I race a Triumph TR5MX against lots of big bore 2 strokes and win every now and then. My grandfather is building a Honda xl350 with a 412cc kit. I will surely get a go on it and I am sure it will do great. Alex

    I miss the James Stewart haters...

    It's good to see any get sorted and ride well.
  12. It will do fine for a novice rider. Intermediate is where you will start noticing it. It is legal for AHRMA post vintage motocross. It would race in ULTIMA 250.
  13. Thank you so much! So it is just a 7/32 ball bearing? I feel like a dummy. But I am new to BSA's. Alex
  14. So I am racing on the 6th. I pulled the right side engine cover off of my BSA B50 and replaced my kick start spring. When putting the side cover back on I can't get the clutch to work. It is really stiff. Also the arm on the cover has lots of free play. Any advice to me? I have had this cover on and off about 30 times. I don't get much time to work on it due to my job. Any input is much appreciated. Alex
  15. Got her all figured out, sorry for the unnecessary post. I am just frantic because I am trying to find time to get the bike ready to race for the Crooked River Ranch Steel Stampede.
