TM DESIGNWORKS does really nice work.
Thanks guys!

I did replace the stock bolts with titanium  :-o



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

Finally... A part that I can put on the bike and not have to worry about taking it off again  :lol:
This is a Samco Husqvarna 2016 250 sxf T radiator hose.
I pulled the stock unit out to powder coat the frame and I just didn't trust the stock part after the abuse of getting it apart.

Are you going to hit Ecklund up for one of those Rekluse setups?
Perhaps I have a dirt bike addiction?

Sandblaster I must have been under a rock to have missed this build, l am tuned in and awaiting the upcoming episodes, what a monster! Geeze I miss this sight. Havenít been here in years. Great to see such keen and talented builders exploiting great technology options for the K5. Keep up the good work.

2003 KX500 Scares me! (Reminded me I couldnít ride well)
1997 TE610 Arm chair! (Made me think I could ride)
2000 CT110 Fun!
1986 KDX200 SOLD! (But looking for another)
1970 AG100 Still makes me 😀

The thanks is from guys like me who can have the luxury of enjoying these next level builds, learn humbling levels of info and be able to make informed decisions on a limited budget without having to waste time and money by reinventing the wheel multiplied to the power of ignorance. 

You blokes are forging the way for the rest of us to have a go.

Cheers!

You definitely have the addiction sandblaster. These 500s are a life long passion, once the bug has bit, its hard to shake.

Exactly!  I rode a friends Beta 300.  It was smooth, easy to ride, but NOT scary.  If you're not scared whats the point.
