I have a 500 E4 which i ve been having trouble with it not idling carby is fine

I have a 500 E4 which i've been having trouble with it not idling carby is fine (no blockages & jets to recommendations) so I stripped the KIPS to clean it up and noticed the head has E2 on it, does this mean its off a E2 and is there a difference between the two as in E2 giving my E4 lower compression??? any help would b appreciated

  • I don't honestly know the answer to that. My advice is to look on Destry Abbotts website. He is a former works kx500 rider and has a very informative website. Type into Google,.... Kxriders.com. There is s very big section dedicated to the kx500. Lots and lots of knowledgable mx500 owners discussing everything you can think of related to the k5. It's a very useful website.

  • There is no difference from 89 to 04 in the engines on kx 500's

  • check float level.

  • float level 16mm

  • Mine might idle,what's it gotta do that for?
