1989 KX500 no casting marks on engine
« on: February 10, 2020, 05:48:03 AM »
New to the board. Thanks to anyone who may be able to help me out. I have what I believe to be a 1989 KX500 with zero casting marks on the engine other than the stamped serial number which is KX500BE009064. Was hoping someone could explain why. Thanks.

Yes, it's a 89  1989 is KX500BE008501 - KX500BE010700
The four stroke engine: That's one stroke for producing power and three for wearing the engine out.
