New to the site, but not bikes. This recent creation stemmed from riding a KX500 desert race bike in the mountains and deserts of west Idaho. That bike was so easy to ride fast I couldn't help but switch from my trusty WR450. So... long story short I sold the yami' and bought an OK, but poorly put together KX 500. Now realize this build would not be possible w/o my best friend who's been a part of KX guru's who have been building "front cover" bikes for racer-x, motocross action and the like. He knows the intricate issues with these bikes and how to make them work, I just did the complete tear down and reassembly while he guided me on smart parts/upgrades and sourced the custom parts. I'll tell the rest of the story in pictures as i get time to upload. Enjoy.
