Hello everyone, my name is Filipe. I joined a couple weeks ago but only now got around to introduce myself 🙂
I’m from Portugal and bought my 1987 EX500-A1 2 months ago. It was in a bit of a sorry state but mainly cosmetic. Engine sounds good and the previous owner even threw in an extra engine with the sale. 🙂
So far I’ve :
- Swapped the silencers for a couple of new looking OEM Kawasaki ones.
- Had to change left riser and bar as the ones on it were bent.
- Replaced all the bodywork bolts for proper ones (previous owner seemed to replace every missing bolt for whatever random one he had at home, including screws for wood, etc.
- Replaced Clutch lever for an OEM one since the one mounted was not original.
I’ve also applied thermal wrap to the pipes since they were a bit dented and that covers it up.
