Finally I'm back on the "Special Bike"

Getting this KX500 rear brake caliper ready to go. Waiting for the new piston to get here.
I've always liked good brakes on my KX500 and since this bike will be incredibly fast I would like to be able to stop it..

KX500 Original / Kx500 compression release head

Anybody know where I can send my head to get a compression release fit onto it and is there any side effects to doing this mod, like a thicker or different head gasket? I’ve heard it makes starting this beast a little easier when you’re beat tired.

KX500 Original / N89D Needle part number.

Hello all,
Does anyone have the Kawasaki part number for the N89D carb needle please. I've contacted a Allens performance and Cradley Kawasaki (both good, knowledgeable companies in the uk) and neither have the needle under that part number.
Many thanks

I recently purchased a 08 Kx250f with no spark.  Lost on what todo next.  I replaced the stick coil and stator. Bought a used cdi off eBay that was “running” guy stands behind it.  Checked the flywheel still has the magnetism.  Checking coil wires when no coil is hooked up and kicking over volts are all over the map 30-130-200 ect when coil is plugged in the volts drop down almost instant then I kick it over the volts go up to 200 or so when I check the wires.  Checked the ground also it’s good and the spark plug.

I checked ohm on
Bl/r  white/ red.  32.7
White yellow 2.6
CPS. 95

New to the board. Thanks to anyone who may be able to help me out. I have what I believe to be a 1989 KX500 with zero casting marks on the engine other than the stamped serial number which is KX500BE009064. Was hoping someone could explain why. Thanks.
KX500 Original / Hard to start K5
« Last post by Borntworide on February 10, 2020, 04:53:15 AM »
 I have been reading posts and using search function about hard to start K5's , Obviously, I am here because the one I just purchased is hard to start or won't start. I read everyone says jetting, I have to clean carb anyway, The fuel smelled like varnish, figured while I am in there I would double-check correct jetting, I downloaded chart and will not open. is that me or chart link dead?

I do have good spark, figured I would start with fuel, carb and compression then timing

I  think I may just be a big pussy and can't kick it hard enough! LOL

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated !!
