The new KX250F and KX450F use a new type of bolt that eliminates the anchors used to hold the plastic in place.  They work especially well on my older bikes and make getting the plastic on simpler and cleaner.  Rocky Mountain sells a full set of 16 for $11.99.  https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/988/72859/Tusk-Kawasaki-KX-Trail-Bolt-Kit-?s=1349553

Ah, the Dukes of Hazard.  Poor Cletus couldn't resist the charms of Daisy.  Looks like in modern times it's a KX 500 he can't resist.   grin

Does anybody know if you can buy an SKF rear shock seal kit or seal head kit to fit a 1990 KX 500? Need one for my 250 but they are the same fit, thanks

Good pads do make a difference.
More aggressive pads will stop you easier but they also wear the rotor's out quicker.

Or, just quit foolin around and make yourself something special..

Yeah I use the rear brake a lot to slide the rear end around in turns. I already have an after market vented rotor. Maybe I need to try some different pads as the way I know it's hot is it begins to squawk and gets touchy after 15 minutes of hard riding

This sums up my concerns, I found this quote from Dr Ian Malcolm quite fitting.......

“The world has just changed so radically, and we're all running to catch up. I don't want to jump to any conclusions, but look… Dinosaurs(KX500’s) and man(new KTM frames), two species separated by 65 million years of evolution(give or take  wink), have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?”

I wish Dr Allan Grant were here, but I’m frightened he might say....

“T. Rex(KX500 Engine) doesn't want to be FED, he wants to HUNT!. Can't just... suppress 65 million years of gut instinct”.

Maybe this is the reason why no one is able to post about their conversion after they have ridden one because of this.....

Dr Ian Malcolm:
“If there's one thing the history of evolution has taught us, it's that life (The power delivery of the KX500) will not be contained. Life breaks free, it expands to new territories, and crashes through barriers painfully, maybe even dangerously, but, uh, well, there it is.” shocked

Maybe in too much pain to type  cheesy

Anyone with any opinions on the best handling KTM frame for KX500 conversion?

If I was to go down this rout I want best bang for buck regarding the following criteria.

1.The best handling chassis, but if the previous model handles the same with no noticeable differences than I’m happy to have that.

2.Newest aesthetics and ergos possible considering point 1

3.Must be plate compliance frame

4.Cheapest  smiley
