KX500 Decompression Valve Mods

Post by Salt Lake K5 Guy » Fri Oct 01, 2021 7:01 pm

Anybody out there have any intel on who is currently doing good KX500 Cylinder Head Decompression Valve mods? I need to get a couple done and at least one of them turned around and back on pretty quick.

Thanks, y’all.

If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.

Thanks!
That’s who Alex suggested too. I got a hold of him. Looks like that’s what I’m gonna go with.

What’s your favorite oil and ratio for the 500? I’m thinking of switching it up. Been on Super Techniplate since 02 at 32:1. Been thinking of switching to Redline at maybe a leaner ratio. I run it on Sonoco 100/91 pump 50/50 mix fuel wise.

Motul 800 @ 50:1
Ive been running it for many years.
I even run the same in my land speed bikes.
I've been running Renegade 97 for fuel and love it.
I have also ran C:12 with half pump gas mix.
