i have a 87 with a worked 86 kx 500 motor in it. i lengthend the swingarm 2.5 and the front a arms are +3 +1. the machine rips, i have a lot of trouble keeping the quad settled because of the power. before this i had a 2001 kx 500 and that was easier to ride because the power delivery was much nicer. the 86 motor just comes on way strong, i have to play with the jetting prob to smooth it out.

1987 tecate with a ported 1986 kx 500 motor, single ring piston, rons pulse engineering intake system,
+3 arms, fox double rate remote resi in front, re valved rear shock, chrome anti vibe steering stem, powder coated frame kawie green, arms black. much thanks to rockhound and all the support from the forum
