'83 CR480R with a '91 KX250 front end



Currently needs some suspension work; I'm looking for a newer KX front end and a newer shock.

Here is my big bore two smoker. 1999 KX500. I just got her put together after having the frame painted, lots of new parts, and suspension tuning, and I laced up some black rims too.

The 91 KX250 had blue upside down forks not the conventionals that are on your bike in the picture. 89 was the last year for conventional forks on the KXs. If they are 46mm they are from a 89. Below that would be 43mm. If they are 46mm forks keep them! They are great forks!

X2. And send that shock to Pro Action in PA for a re-valve, spring and rebuild. I cannot put into words the difference they made for my 84 CR

Yeah, but that's a twin. I can't imagine what it's like to ride that 760 Maico, I have ridden alot of big bore 2 stroke dirt bikes, love that "pull the pin and get back" feeling when you open the throttle, but can't wrap my mind around 760cc's It's gotta be like riding a stick of dynamite!

Probably the most commonly asked question was: "Is it fast?"Yes, but not like any Open bike you might be familiar with. It doesn’t explode and lurch off the line, doing wheelstands all over the place. No sir. It merely pulls like the friendliest tractor you ever did see in your whole life.The bike peaks out at a mere 4000 rpm. In this day and age of Open bikes turning 7000-plus rpm, it’s almost leisurely. Peak horsepower is rated at a very conservative 43. However, at a mere 1200 rpm, the massive engine puts out 26 horsepower, more than the hottest 125s produce at peak revs. And we’re talking rear wheel horsepower, too.

2000 Husqvarna wr360:



I ride lots of single track here in southwest pa. Haven't done too much to it other than armor it up and swap on a lectron carb.

Power wise it's pretty mellow. Lots of low/mid with almost no "hit". Still, it's a blast to ride and keeps up with newer bikes just fine.

I raced one of these for years in SoCal. I ran the last 3 Barstow to Vegas races on it. That bike taught me throttle control!
