radeenshemirani posted a topic in Kawasaki 2 StrokeHere's a gnarly question for y'all: I drag race a 2001 Kawasaki KX500 2 stroke. Currently looking for some more top speed. With 16/38 gearing it tops out just under 100MPH, and currently need it geared well into the 120s as I am letting off and shutting the bike off around 1000 feet. Here's my issue: I talked to a few custom sprocket shops and the smallest sprocket they said I could fit on my bike was a 36t sprocket, and that wasn't even guaranteed. They claimed that they wouldn't recommend me paying for anything under 37 because they couldn't guarantee that it would work. Now, there is a solution, albiet an expensive one. Something called a "Quick Change Barnes Style Hub". Basically a hub with a tiny outer flange that would let me run sprockets into the low 20s. Issue with this is, the hub alone is over 600 dollars. Tie in a wheel, lace kit, and bearings and I am looking at over 1,000 bucks JUST in my rear wheel. Keeping in mind I am only about 750 bucks in this ENTIRE bike, does anybody know of a solution that would let me run somewhere around a 32t sprocket? Is there a Kawasaki hub with a smaller I.D that I could run and lace onto my existing rim? Or am I screwed with buying this expensive flat track hub that will let me finally get this bike into the 10s? ANY help is appreciated!
I am wondering if a pair of 2006 kx 250f forks will fit on my 1997 kx 500? Will they fit in the kx500 triple clamps? If they do fit, will the kx 500 front wheel fit? And will the front break work? A friend said he will sell me the forks for $100. Is it worth it at that price? Will it really be that much better? Thanks for any input
I installed a pro Circuit heat strip on the cylinder of my cr500 and was wondering what should my operating temp be or what should the strip be reading, if any of y’all have installed these on your 2 strokes the help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Made a little video of me riding some new trails we discovered, I had no clue where I was going. But I found out a way to ride a pretty fun loop to practice for woods races on. Check the video out, feedback is appreciated
