Well after my ktm/cr500 build turned out to be a big mistake I sold the engine and started a ktm/trx250r build, after fitting the engine swingarm mount and bottom mounts I had my local mod shop fab the front engine mounts and a fatty pipe made to fit the chassis, after putting 10 hours on it and not being able to take the smile off my face when riding it I decided its time for some more horsepower :) I contacted arlan at led preformance about building a 431 puma engine and custom exhaust and intake and he was excited to take on the build :) I found a good engine that has only been opened up once and a low hour 525xc rolling chassis to start this build fresh, arlan should be starting to work on the engine this month and then I have to ship him the chassis.Plans for build,Engine:-431cc CPI puma big bore kit,-led custom porting,-welded and balanced crank with ktm rod,-sling shot clutch,-cyroed and back cut tranny,-Ricky stator ignition to run lights/fan,-led exhaust and intake,-40mm billit smart carb,Chassis:plus 4 swing arm,-shocks ?,-all black plastics,-custom rad decals,-carbon fiber steering stem/bars/tie rods,-sx a-arms/seat/fuel tank,-presision steering damper/antivibe bar clamp,Here's some pics of the swingarm mount and front mount, I'm gonna let arlan do the bottom mounts, more pics to come

Just using a stock kicker, it fits perfect under the frame rail but theirs not much forward movement so might have to use a decompression button on the cylinder, I'm sure he will keep the templates, I think a lot of ppl will be interested in doing this conversion if it turns out good
