It's going up against Adam Millar (Roostius) and you know he is relishing the idea of destroying me  cheesy
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?

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  cheesy

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"  tongue

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.   grin

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

I have no idea....  cheesy
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..
