OT 84 xr500 basket case

2 posts in this topic

I know it's a little off topic but I thought I'd ask... got a buddy of mine that's got an 1984 XR500 basket case that's complete and he wants to give it to me... problem is it's got 2 carbs and a bad head (valves I think)... Is it worth the time and trouble to repair this thing? I understand that there are aftermarket intakes that remedy the 2 carb thing, but I understand that the heads are difficult to come by & expensive..

TIA :)

The 2 carb thing isn't a problem, other than the throttle pull's a little heavier. Finding a head will be the issue. I've got a spare motor but haven't decided what I'll do with it yet and it'd probably cost more to get it to you than you'd wanna pay. :)
