Before I go any farther... I'm going to test this filler for expansion due to heat...
I hope it holds up well but that's why you experiment.. :shock:

Introducing "The Pit Viper" by Growler Racing. This specific pipe is for the KX500 that you are looking for more mid to top end out of. Also, this specific pipe is for running a electric starter in a Aluminum chassis or KTM conversion... If interested, talk to Mathew Beauchamp for details..

Yes, this will be going on my KTX500E build :lol:

Ok... the fillers did not work.
Every time I got the temps up much past 250f the putty would crack.

So, enough playing with the putties and fillers..
I took the cover to the welder and had him fill it in :o

One of the many issues you run into when building a conversion is lack of color availability.
I have been working hard on stripping off the pumpkin rind and replacing with the beautiful Kawasaki Green scheme..
When it came down to the seat, nobody made a Kawasaki color scheme for the KTM..

What to do?
Oscar from KX Guru Racing called his buddies at Guts Racing and they set me up!!!

Not only did they nail the colors but they used a soft foam which is very important when you get older and realize that your no longer a iron man :lol:

Thanks Guts racing, I really, really, appreciate it!

I guess I should clean up the shop a bit before I post any pics... You can never tell where they may end up..

The pipe came with some mounting brackets for the pipe to the chassis..
