Your bike is pretty clean looking, if the majority of the frame paint is in good condition, I would not bother powder coating it, you can clean up/ sand lower cradles & blend paint into upper tubes for a very clean look, remove anything that may ... more »

Thanks for the info guys.... Just enjoying these k5 builds & taking notes....

Added reply in a thread 1992 KX500 12/7/2017 12:15 PM

Side note: I"m pretty sure the k5 shock bodies are same as my 89 kx 250 kyb, which means the Oem Ti rear spring for a yz450 fits on

Been following your build....as I have this coming up next.... It"s a 90.....I have been thinking about what to do with the fork upgrade. Originally was just going to put the latest k5 front end on, from 99-2004 for something easy...but I see a nice

They just told me they are out of them? Let us know how you make out....I may just have mine cut...

Yep...Lost a lot of great riding spots in the last 10 years...I"m close to 2 good practice tracks but they close early for the year ...when you have a mild fall, like we have had, we lose out on some good riding...enjoy!

Nice job on the build....

Added reply in a thread 1995 YZ-250. No frills, no bling rebuild. 12/4/2017 7:54 PM

Forks qualify as "bling" ? Ha ha... A lot of builds start out as no frills no bling....

Lucky guy! I have been searching for some land to build a track on, not easy to find the right location....some good farm land out your way....how are your neighbors with the noise?
