Keep up the good work and good luck with the build.
2008 FE650 (KX500 but with manners and E-Start)
2003 KX500 Scares me! (Reminded me I couldn’t 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 😀

Something cool showed up this afternoon.
Tom Morgan Ported, polished, head re-cut, decomp, the works.
I have played with a lot of porting myself and for a good all around MX port job this would be hard to beat.
More power everywhere..
You must run good fuel..
This will do the job.



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

So... who would take a Italian made custom aluminum gas tank made for a KX500 and try to polish it?



Before



After



Still a little hazy but you get the idea..

This is a Tom Morgan Racing balanced and assembled KX500 Crank assembly with a Wossner rod.
Something of note... There was no heavy metal used in the balancing of the crank.
Weight was removed but none was added.
For me, that is the best way to balance.

What is the litreage of the tank and the significance of the aluminium?

I don't even know how many gallons it holds let alone know the liters  :-o

Aluminum looks cool.. and I believe it is lighter then the plastic tank...  8-)

Yes, he has 17 products specific to the KX500 that you can find here:
https://titanclassics.com/product-category/kawasaki-parts/kx500/

Everything is awesome!
And the Rear brake TITANIUM caliper pin bolt. 92043-1508 can be cut and ground to be used for a adjustable governor rod adjustment bolt to make your kips open and close as you like :-)

That is a bunch of interesting angles on the tank. Are you going to put water (or fuel) in it and check volume? Not sure I would go through the effort unless it was larger than stock.
