It's going up against Adam Millar (Roostius) and you know he is relishing the idea of destroying me  :lol:
So why isn't he posting his build on the site?  Seems like he's being more cloak and dagger than you.  Is he also getting parts from MXA? 
Perhaps I have a dirt bike addiction?

Oh yeah, he is getting parts from MXA.
Although he didn't request as many as I did...
Hey, they said make it a wish list so I did  :lol:

You can check out the build off page here:

The four stroke engine: That's one stroke for producing power and three for wearing the engine out.

It's time to start working on the rear brake caliper..
Here is what I am starting with..
The goal is to get rid of all the casting flaws, markings, logos, ect.









It should be fun...  :wink:

"busy"  :-P

I have 2 of these 2016 KTM's with CR500's. One for the bush has been ready for over a month and I've been running it, getting a little shake down on the tune etc for an identical engine arrangement other than case brand. I have a quick video of a ride on the wet trails friday night while datalogging some temps for an upcoming component comparison.

It sounds like it's very crisp.  I love how you can just barely idle a 500, and still be going at a good pace.  It pisses off the smaller bike guys.   :-D

What do you guys have bet on this shootout?  Bragging rights, cash, first born children?

Nothing that I know of... Although I owe him a steak dinner for some favors...
I'm sure he can eat a lot of steak if it's free  :lol:

I have no idea....  :lol:
It's been over a few nights so a few hours???
I just don't have the right tools for proper polishing.
Yeah, I can do it but a polishing shop could knock it out in minutes I'm sure..
