TX500 Frozen Engine

After deciding the TX500 engine was not going to break loose with any amount of soaking or pressure I tore into the top end. What I found was an incredible amount of rust and gunk built up on the cylinder walls and the pistons. No suprise there I suppose. A replacement cylinder is on the way, as well as new piston kits. A replacement cam chain (had to be cut) and gasket set will be much harder to source.

  1. Evan, My TX500 is just like yours, except mine is missing some rather fundamental pieces. Do you have a source for parts, ie. rear brake and gear shift levers, carb. set, chrome headlamp pieces? Thanks, Don


  2. Hey Evan, I know I am a little late on this post, but do you still have any parts remaining for this TX500 engine / bike? If so, what parts you got left?
