That's funny. I just got the Ti Powercore 2.1 yesterday and am doing the same thing! I removed both brackets and am going to rivet just the rear one back on in the proper location and put rivets back into the original holes. It has a 30mm inlet pipe vs the 32mm on the k5 (28 and 30mm id's  respectively). I cut the inlet pipe off 1" from the silencer and have a straight section of 32mm od pipe from my scalvini pipe which slips right over the silencer inlet. The people at FMF were totally useless and wouldn't bother to even give me the dimsions of the few that they carry for modern 2 strokes so it was trial and error to find one close. I tried the YZ250 one first but it was only a 28mm inlet pipe.

Be sure to document what you did.
I'm sure there are a few guys that might want to copy you  8-)

I'm putting the races back in the frame.
I don't have any special tooling  :|
But, I do have a old 2" trailer hitch ball that is a nice fit  :lol:



Good old ACME  :mrgreen:

You dont want be hammering the bearing race surface :-o :-D

Reduce the outer diameter of ur old bearing outer race{grind it } and use up side down to tap the new bearing race home /cool the bearing will also help

Excellent suggestion but..... I removed brand new races so there was no need to order more, and grind the old set down as I am reusing the new stock races that I removed.
Further, I should have taken a pic while I was doing it... I put a rag under the ball... Just one layer...
The pic I posted was after I had done the deed and then decided I should post it but I couldn't find what I did with my clean rag..
I knew if I put a dirty rag in there people would freak  :lol:
I have done this same procedure many times over the years with no issues.
Then again, I don't beat the race up.
If you look at that hammer, it's very small and light.
I'll take a pic of the bearing surface later, as you will see this method does not damage the bearing surface in any discernible way.
I have done this same procedure and ran the races and bearings for over 15 years in the past so I'm sure these will outlast me and my bike riding days.  :-o

The top clamp is being replaced as soon as I get it.
I put this top clamp on to hold it together.
Also, I'm replacing the bolts with Ti  8-)

What a beautiful bike and build!
I keep looking at KX500's but at 64 with the damage I have another KX500 is out of the picture. Really slowing down these days. Gives me a chance to take in more scenery!
As has been said, the first real scratch or damage will be a downer, but once it happens it will be over. Not that you will neglect it after that, it's always that 'first' one that really hurts.

That's why I hope one of the wrecking crew at MXA does it first..
Then I can have them sign the damage and I'll clear coat it  :-D

More goodies showed up today from Hammerhead.
I have used Hammerhead products for many years.
Everything has always been top quality.
These parts are no exception.
The shift lever is for a KX500 and has a 20mm extended tip.
Makes it nice for those with a larger shoe size  :-D
The rear brake lever is another sweet piece for the 2016 KTM 250 SXF chassis.
Looks and fits great.
The tip is Titanium so for those with weight reduction in mind this is a perfect match 8-)

Thank you Hammerhead!

Are there any other modifications you have to do to run the Boyesen Super Cooler besides the TSR clutch cover?  What do those guys run?
Perhaps I have a dirt bike addiction?

I just received my TSR 2 piece right side cover and it was $805 USD delivered. It comes with the Boyeseen water pump, a pump to cylinder coolant hose (blue or green) and a new cylinder hose fitting. I got the one for the stock side location vs the rear cylinder relocation one.  It also came with the new clutch cover gasket and Allen screws for  the clutch cover and the water pump. The pump appears to be for a 94-04 KX250

I really like WPC Treatments, Micro-polishing, ect ect...
But I'm going old school and polishing my own parts the hard way
