Team Monster Energy Kawasaki's Tyler Bowers Straight Rhythm on a KX500

Post by Sandblaster » Tue Sep 11, 2018 3:11 pm

The team at KX Guru Racing have become a very busy crew......between our 500cc build off with MRE, our adventure ride from the Canadian border to the Aim Expo in Las Vegas, our Sunny Garcia project Hawaiian Beast and many more projects in the works we have found ourselves stretched pretty thin. HOWEVER when this opportunity came up we couldn't pass it up.......
As it turns out, Team Monster Energy Kawasaki's Tyler Bowers has got the green light to race a steel framed KX500 on October 20th at the famous Red Bull Straight Rhythm. Tyler bought himself a pristine 1991 KX500 and has been practicing with it. Although he loves the bike obviously it needs some much needed upgrades......Pro Circuit will be handling the engine build as they are one of Tyler's primary sponsors however thanks to a good referral from MRE's Adam MillAr, Tyler has enlisted KX Guru Racing to assist with the chassis mods and chassis set up. We are thrilled to be a part of this project and we will do all we can to provide Tyler with a solid KX500 capable of the harsh pounding it will experience while competing in this fine event!! Stay tuned as this promises to be an event that will be remembered for a long time!!

Jason Tanner was up late last night hand making a custom set of KX500 Frame gussets for Tyler's bike

Oscar says..

Granted the Kawasaki kx500 is not as technologically advanced as Tyler Bowers' Factory Kawasaki kx450f but we will do our best to give him the best kx500 we possibly can!

I said..

Tell Tyler to pull his suspension off his 450 and put it on the 500. Send the shock to me, I'll make it fit.. Although it won't fit the 450 when I'm done with it.
