hello,

big car and bike guy. i had a '97 for a minute but it was stock and i just flipped it.
well im competing in a Baltimore bike build off with a $1000 budget. i picked up a '93 ex500 that's been upjetted and has a full exhuast. was layed down 14 years ago and been in storage since. only 3300 miles....
I paid $300 for it with title. yeah not bad
cleaned the tank, petcock, new fuel line, battery, carb cleaned... she runs! wont rev past 5500 rpms though? so i decided to make an account to hopefully help me with that and track my $1k build... im leaning towards tracker / enduro

about me -
we have a large garage, a 2 and 4 post lift and just about every tool you can think of. i have a '91 skyline gtr i just did a PT 6266 swap on, it's around 520 whp. i also have an '85 rx7 with a honda s2000 engine in it and im slowly building a 1930 model a tudor sedan rat rod i want to do a 2j with a large single.
plus the current bike line up in my signature.. i do a lot of buying and selling on the side. cars and bikes mostly
anyway, hope to learn a thing or two here about these bikes. they dont seem too difficult. im sure my issue is something pretty simple
