The steering stem bearings loosened up a bit since I built this bike so I made that adjustment. I bled the front brakes so they grab a b...

Re: 92 KX500 Land Speed Record Attempt Production Class

9-16-22 Update. Bonneville was a bust this year as we were rained out. It's hard to hit a Land Speed record with 4" of water covering the lake bed :shock: Anyhow, testing and tuning continues... Which is good. We have picked up a few more miles an hour with changes to the crank, muffler packing, and...

Re: 92 KX500 Land Speed Record Attempt Production Class

Bam!!! Unofficially Jason Tanner at JT Engine Works just went faster a Production 500cc single cylinder than anyone on the planet :o With our Rev 3 top end we beat our best run by approx 4 miles an hour. That said, it is unofficial and I believe that we still need to fine tune it. What is possible? ...

Re: The Haas KX500 build. Dyno Doug Haas

I think I'm going to try a Smart Carb SC2 on this build. The fact that you can set the carb up and do huge changes in elevation and you don't have to mess with jetting is a real plus. But how will it perform? Stay tuned for a review at some time in the future.. Screenshot_20220611-191016_Instagram.j...

Re: The Haas KX500 build. Dyno Doug Haas

Re: The Haas KX500 build. Dyno Doug Haas

I wanted to verify that my 19-22 KX450f forks would fit on my custom clamps.
Very nice... 8-)
