So this review is way over due.  This website was a huge help in getting my 2000 KX500 rebuilt and running.  For the past year I've used it on the road (it has a plate) and in open fields with the kids.  The bike is awesome and pulls like crazy.  I finally got to do some real woods riding and was super impressed.  I live in Northern New Jersey so tons of hills and rocks.  Hills that I would get stuck on with my 96 kx250 the 500 just chugs up.  I really had no idea that it would be so nice at lower rpm's in the woods.  My only complaint is that the dual sport Pirelli I am running didn't hook up at all.  I'm sure traction will always be an issue I'm also sure that there's a better option.  Any recommendations for a rocky woods tire?  I was looking at the Kenda Equilibrium.  I get some pics up once I get back into my photobucket account.

I love mine in the woods, the torque is really nice. Now if I could just work on the fuel mileage.

Photobucket doesn’t work for posting anymore. On the bright side, the site can now host pictures. Here is a guide to posting: http://www.kxriders.com/forums/index.php/topic,17107.0.html

Few pics from the first ride.  Had to do the rear fender mod because the rear wheel ate the stock one.

Looks good blacked out!...mine's still 80% blackened.
Too bad about the stock fender, it looks better with the stock one...I think.
