I have posted questions and nobody has replied. Am I missing something?
I would be patient, especially with specialized questions, as it sometimes takes just the right person to answer your question.  If that person has not been on the site in a while, you may have a question go unanswered for a bit.  I saw your question on the 87 subframe.  Dave916 or Sandblaster would be good people to ask about it.  Both gentlemen are very experienced in the 500, and have really helped me with my 88 motor conversion.  They are super nice guys to boot.  Try sending them a quick direct message.  One more thing to remember: Most people tend to stay in the 85-88 or 89 and up families, as not many of the engine parts will swap over, so you will need to find somebody who has tried the swap out of necessity or curiosity before. Hope that helps.

Thanks. I'll probably go with the kiwi green as well. I need to find myself a good powder coater in  S.E. MI but first I need to get a new triple clamp frame stop welded in place for the Ride Engineering 22mm triple clamps though.

I'll start with the one closest to me and go from there smiley

Because I'm still mocking this bike up the paint is a rattle can color that I found at Home Depot  grin
But, when I'm ready for powder coating it will be Kiwi Green  afro

Hey sandblaster,
What powder coat color is the frame? Is there a color code for it? I've been looking at RAL-6018 and kiwi green but can't decide.

I guess I should clean up the shop a bit before I post any pics... You can never tell where they may end up..

One of the many issues you  run into when building a conversion is lack of color availability.
I have been working hard on stripping off the pumpkin rind and replacing with the beautiful Kawasaki Green scheme..
When it came down to the seat, nobody made a Kawasaki color scheme for the KTM..

What to do?
Oscar from KX Guru Racing called his buddies at Guts Racing and they set me up!!!

Not only did they nail the colors but they used a soft foam which is very important when you get older and realize that your no longer a iron man  cheesy

Thanks Guts racing, I really, really, appreciate it!
