  1. SR500 Performance

    I have a 1981 SR500 engine inside a 1977 TT500 frame. The bike has lots of down low power, but little mild up top. I know the head flow on these engines is not the greatest. I was wondering if anyone here has any information on the best way to port the head, or if there are any aftermarket heads on the market?

    Plus, does anyone know if the Johnson J2 cam is any good?

    Thanks, Andrew
  2. Handlebar Risers

    I'm interested in raising my handlebars just a little on 2015 sr400 fi. There are 1.2" risers available. Has anyone tried these? I think there is enough play in the brake lines and clutch, but I'm a bit worried about the headlight wiring. Any input would be appreciated.

  4. Kickstand

    The spring must go 'over center' to hold the stand in position. At least that's how the ones I helped mod worked.
