Daaaaaayyyyuuuummmmmmm I take it you don't have a silencer on it yet? And it's always good to head a 500 revved like an 80 or 250 LOL!!  Honestly though, I have yet to hear anyone really ring out a Zilla. Not even duners!! That put put it around till they get to a hill then go up it. That counts as ringing it out about as much as drag racing. IT DOESN'T!!! Lol (THAT'S NOT HATERAID, GUYS, CALM DOWN)

I can't wait to see you running that thing!! I'm kinda curious about how that pipe is gunna make it act though.  It looks more suited for a 125 dirt bike than for a 500 But hey,,,,,, never know!!!

Look on 2nd page where I uploaded the pics and next to last one you can see my silencer and how its mounted. Needs a repacking I'm sure and the exhaust I think will be alright for where I need my power the most for motocross. I won't know for sure til I hit the practice track though. Still needing a few more things before I can ride it like new clutches, clutch cable, water pump kit, fresh rings, and gonna finish stripping the engine of paint and polish it up then clear coat it with high temp paint. Gonna put new gaskets in it everywhere, new seals, check all bearings again since it's finally been cranked from sitting 7 years and build the motor back perfect and new as possible everywhere, or as needed. Get my frame and suspension PC'd and have it ready to go by beginning of july and practice on it everyday to get the feel for it..... Then I'm planning on busting out the gate in open A or B(B probably) like a bat outta burnt stump at Lorretta Lynn's National mid August. Hopefully I can get some looks and hook up with a sponsor again.

So are you kick starting it or starting it off the fly wheel? Just wondering if you're able to kick it over and start it with those nerf bars and heel guards.

Kickstart. It's a motocross quad. I'd hate to have to leave the stator cover off and wear a backpack during a race carrying a 19.2v Craftsman electric impact just to crank it if I wadded up or something. Kicker was heavily modified to clear everything.

Can you post up a picture of that? It's hard to see in your other pictures and impossible to see in the video. Thanks! Awesome build btw I'm planning on doing the same thing with any of the 450 chassis preferably they yfz or ltr.

Sorry it took so long. I'm back working 60hrs a week again. Hopefully get some more tonight of it all together with plastics. Im also not done with the kicker, i have some welding to do on it for strength and support and im gonna use my band saw and cut the snap ring groove wider and deeper to hold a fatter one for more support.

Dios Mio! Is that thick enough?
Would it have been easier to cut the frame like a normal Hybrid?

Well if it does break, it's not like it'll hurt anything.
Now, if the trimming was done halfway up the kickstarter, I would be afraid.
Very afraid LOL
Seems like there's still enough meat left in that area for strength.

I'm going to weld the right angle seem up a little and it won't break there. I've cranked it probably 40 times now and kicked it well over 100(playing with timing) and theres no stress cracks yet but it most definitely could break if it wanted to lol.

Testing will see how that will work, hope it don't let go mid kick!

Yeah that'd probably be painful. The snap ring I feel is the weak point which is being addressed aswell. Gonna go thicker, tighter, and wider from ID to OD of snap ring.

No. Cutting the frame was definitely the first thought but with the measurements needed, it would've needed to been cut 2 1/4" above swingarm pivot hole and and 3/8" behind it then filled with square tubing and shaped up. It would've have severely weakened the structural integrity of the frame itself and put more load/stress on it elsewhere when landing. I thought cutting the kicker down would be best, cheapest, and easiet to replace if it failed.

Nothing much working everyday now. Almost finished but still havent ridden it or got to finish the clutch internals.













Wish somone could resize them and still have good quality. They came from my friends phone and the image uploader wouldn't resize them this time.

I will definitely have a video and some feedback on it for sure. As to say when... well, your guess is as good as mine at this point. Pushing 70hrs a week now and no time for anything, not even the chick.

I totally hear you man I do between 65-80 a week I only see my son for a half hour each morning I get home and my family is all in bed sometimes I stay late at the shop and take care of odds and ends on my zilla build. I'm still waiting on my top end which has me at a stand still.

I'm gonna post one of the ones I saved never mind it sucked.

Luckily it doesn't look naked without rad shrouds. When I put em on the left one was against the exhaust bad so I trimmed the tabs off the bottom of the tank cover and it looks somewhat like it should have came that way, lol. Also using a YFZ hood trimmed up for it, whatcha thank?
