Something cool showed up this afternoon.
Tom Morgan Ported, polished, head re-cut, decomp, the works.
I have played with a lot of porting myself and for a good all around MX port job this would be hard to beat.
More power everywhere..
You must run good fuel..
This will do the job.

So... who would take a Italian made custom aluminum gas tank made for a KX500 and try to polish it? :lol:

This is a Tom Morgan Racing balanced and assembled KX500 Crank assembly with a Wossner rod.
It is going in Sunny Garcia's build featured in Racer X Magazine.
Something of note... There was no heavy metal used in the balancing of the crank.
Weight was removed but none was added.
For me, that is the best way to balance.

And the parts just keep rolling in...
Here we have a Adam Millar custom VForce 2 reed block holder.
They are available from 1/4" to at least 1/2" in thickness.
Can you guess which is Sunny's? :lol:

Every fastener was removed and red loctite was used to make sure none of the bolts rattle out and destruct Sunny's engine.
Superior quality, superior flow... Feel the power.....

Jason hand lapped all mounting surfaces on the cases and performed all of KX Guru Racing case mods to improve lubrication... 8-)
Just need a trip through the vapor blaster and oven and they will be ready for assembly..

I've got the other case vapor blasted but again, there will be more work to be done before it's ready for assembly..
You can see that we put a lot of effort into cleaning things up.. :o

Hammerhead came though with a nice shift lever.
I have used Hammerhead products for years and I can tell you from experience that they are top quality.
