Incredible KX500 Build You Have To See!
All. Right what's up guys so behind me here is a 2003. KX 500, absolute. Beast of a bike so, this is actually my buddy Josh's, bike and we're gonna be going through and tricking this thing out should, be a fun little project and I'm looking forward to taking you guys along, for the ride. This. Bikes actually in really good shape already so we're not going to be doing a whole lot of clean-up on it looks. Like it's all stock with the exception, of the pipe and silencer. So, basically, what we're doing here is a Honda. Front end swap so different Forks wheel and brakes, also. Going to be swapping out the tank for something different new wheels and tires some, powder coat seracote, work new graphics, and seat cover kind of changing, up the color scheme and then, maybe a few other odds and ends as well like. Radiator hoses little billet aluminum, pieces and whatnot so, I should turn out pretty sweet for, the front end swap we'll be using a set of Olins kit forks for a Honda so of course we'll need to use a Honda, front wheel and hone the front brakes as well alright first thing we're going to be doing here is ripping. This thing down. So. At this point we've got the bike broken down pretty good lots, of stuff ready to go for powder coating and seracote will be doing the. Triple, clamps, shock. Body some. Of the power valve covers water pump cover and we're actually going to try Sarah, coating some plastic, stuff too so we're gonna go with a burnt, bronze for the head water, pump cover and the. Power. Valve cover as well all right so for the wheels we're going to go with, black rims and. A powder coat the, hubs and anodized. Blue similar. To, what. I did with the cr250 wheels over here. Crust. We've. Got the wheels completely, apart just. Gotta yank the bearings out of the hubs and they'll, be ready for powder coat. And. That. Next step will be removing the, lower, steering, stem bearing get. That triple clamp ready for seracote and then. Pulling, apart the shock to, rebuild it and seracote, that as well. You. Know about that. Damn. So. That's it for day one got the bike torn down to where we need it just gotta order up some parts and some seracote, in powder coat materials then, it's on to doing some coatings and then the assembly process starts. From there so this is everything that's going to be powder coated and setter coated the first step is to clean it in parts washer here this, is the heated parts washer that I built a while back so, this is before all the cleaning has been done and this. Is after. So. All the parts are sandblasted, and ready to go for powder, coat and seracote and for, the shock spring I believe that was powder coated so we're actually removing, the, paint, with, the Scots wet wheel over on the buffer. How'd. This get here what's. Up Mary, curb the out of your wheel oh. I do, that freaks me every time the hint I seize it was. Just like bear. You. Alright.
