Step 14 - Ride that dude

Okay, now you are ready to ride.  I would suggest riding near the truck, and keeping lots of tools with you.  It will have issues, no matter how hard you try to prevent them.  One thing I would always carry with me are the tools to take the gas tank off.  You will not be able to get to the plug without taking off the tank.  Unless you like to push, I would put a ratchet, sockets, and a pipe puller (for the tank strap), by your extra plugs in your tool pouch.

Now, go out and ride that dude.  Have your buddy film you so we can watch.

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

Thank you!  I couldn’t have done it without your help. I keep looking for a cheap 500, because I have an 04 chassis and suspension (from my aluminum frame swap) sitting in my garage as we speak.   evil

One update from my recent dealings with my conversion.  When I moved my coil to the side of the frame, I left the coil brackets on the frame.  This prevented me from removing the head without taking the engine out of the frame.  Since they were no longer needed, I cut them off and now I am able to remove the head, and possibly the cylinder, without removing the motor from the frame.  The brackets are easy to cut off, and serve no structural purpose.
