i've been doing lotsa yamaha mx's recently - i think the piston availability is what's killing the sc500. they aren't terrible and can be ridden - although that motor in stock setup is probably best suited for flat track.. - 73/74 mx250/mx360/sc500 all the same except motor... - just slap a mx360 motor in there, and you'll have a nice bike... the thermaflows aren't terrible but they're just a basic shock - the reservoir just makes them look fancy. they are super easy to rebuild - and i have proper seals for thermaflows if you need them..
