A very tidy KX500 with some MRE massage work is headed back to its owner. It’s had a porting cleanup, cylinder head squish and volume alteration, a MRE VF-2 reed assembly and MRE inflexible long reach clutch arm, a @wossnerpistons connecting rod has been installed on the crankshaft, re-plated standard bore by @millenniumtechnologies accepts the new Wossner piston, new clutch components, bearing set, a @cerakote silver finish has been baked to the castings, and a Decompressor has been added for starting relief. The @specbolt fasteners look much better than recovering the old stock hardware. #MRE500
The Honda KTR500 2 Stroke was the creation of Adam Millar of Millar Racing Engineering. This was not Adam’s first rodeo, as he shoe-horned more than 30 Honda CR500 engines into donor chassis. The Honda CR500 remained basically the same from 1993 until it was discontinued after the 2001 model year. The CR500 cylinder used on the KTR500 was from the 1989 through 2001 configuration. The MRE built CR500 engine was completely different to ride from the KX500 engine. The Honda was a tame version of the KX500. It didn’t lash out; it wasn’t scary when the throttle was at the stops. It was calm and collected. It didn’t rumor when the engine built its power.; it simply sang rather than roared. A bike that shifts with ease and has zero vibration-and a chassis that does everything exceptionally well and offer and easy-to-ride power plant-was considered impossible with such an archaic engine design; however, MRE did it.
