    Pretty sweet 500. Built for drags and dunning I would assume?

    Looks sweet!!

    but....I don't know, the slope of that narrow seat looks like you would need to keep a cooler of ice at the trailer for your nuts.

    AHHH i see now ok.. i like that feature.. yep cr desert tank. cr rear seat i cut 2" out of the sub frame to drop the back of the seat down its actually very comfortable.. havent smooshed the ole jewels yet... i dont have to sit on the seat to take off.. i think it should do around 4.8's. at least 5.0 flat. its very light. with the new head it should be a lot better,. the ftz is a good pipe it works ok with the powerband the motor makes i have just recentely noticed i can launch it HARD at about 2200 rpm.. instead of revving the poo out of it just let the huge TQ of this motor work for me it dosent spin the tires just launchs thats when it lift the front harder..

    Nice 500, seen it before at PS before. I go by HondaATC over there. I love the way you did up that cylinder, its awesome. Hows the power holding up on it?

    the decomp has been great i can start it very very easily now. it was better this way to tune for the alky also. the intake i had to make for the 44 lectron to fit. the power is ok i dont really have anythign to compare it to as far as another 500 but i at times tried to sell it in pieces and noone wanted it. then i just got really motivated after a few months of getting parts and got it done. i had originally put it together to just sell complete but now its been so much fun and reliable that i am thinking of keeping it for now. the swingarm powdercoat came out more purple than red so i am going to take it apart again and have the frame and swinger powdered again thinking of just a mirror black and red flake clear this time see how that woorks..
