It appears to be electric start and the engine has been made much slimmer.

I'm also doing a KX500 but the approach will be a bit different as far as the order of the mods.

We are going to put in some new bearings there but everything else will be the same.
The plan is to make several changes over time and dyno each mod.
I'm tired of butt dyno results  shocked

Alrighty...found out some great news with the motor today while doing the strip and most of the rebuild!!!

All that was wrong with the bottom end was piston skirt particles which prevented it from turning. Rod still in spec, and clutch basket fingers not too bad. Trans and everything else in real good shape. One of the KIPS valve shafts has some damage so ordered a new one and will replace that once the cylinder is back. Someone had already put a hot rods crank in at one point as well which was nice!

I apologize for the crappy pics...my camera was dead so i just took some snap pics and took some screenshots. Have to wait for a few parts to come in next week in order to finish up the motor...hoping to have it all done and top end done within a week and a half or so (depends on when parts get here).

Ordered as of today:

New piston kit
New water pump impeller
Bottom end gaskets
front and rear brake pads
new air filter
new piston sleeve (being done locally which is nice)
Couple oem parts needed such as some bolts and the kips valve shaft
new plug
carb rebuild kit

Next up:

frame power coated
rebuild the rear shock
rebuild the forks
order the chain kit
few more oem things such as exhaust coupler and bolts
new front and rear tire

then i'll start rebuilding and will decide on plastics and graphics Smiley
