    1985 Rm500

    Ok first of yes it's Canadian ( front disc brake etc) last model imported ( 84 was last year in US )

    Last owner spent some cash on the top end and clutches. But.... it needs more work

    1.) Not sure he did crank seals... are they still avail ( part # and an idea of where ) seems these are RARE and hard to get parts for. Mind you it's 20 + years old too.

    2.) Needs a rear shock and i'm looking for ideas ( aftermarket/stock replacement/rebuild kits etc)

    3.) Needs a new set of tires. Has a 5.30-18 on it ( rear ) not sure of the front. Specs call for 140/80-18 and 100/80-21 I think...

    Anyone have any information they can share on these beasts would be great.

    Thanks

    They have an entry for '84 RM500s, which should be the same motor as the '85.

    Look up worksperformance.com for the shock. They have all sorts of vintage models.
