TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: JOHN ELLERSICK’S 2010 SUZUKI RMZILLA 500cc SMOKER
“This machine started it’s life out as a 2010 Suzuki RM-Z250. In June of 2014, I picked up this machine in New Jersey as a roller chassis. I brought her back to New York and took the hacksaw to her, then sent the chassis to Jr mods/ K3 Offroad for an extreme makeover and some custom fabrications including an over-sized aluminum fuel tank. I then picked up a 1993 Honda CR500 that was rebuilt with a complete engine. I added a Jr mods decompression head and a Adam Millar squash mod head who is the current guru or the CR500. Definitely the go to for all your CR500 questions and knowledge. They put in a new OEM crank, 90mm Wiseco piston and replaced everything needed in the engine.
I also added the following parts:
FMF Fatty pipe
FMF Powercore silencer
Moose Racing black rims 21/18
Moose Racing spokes
Primary Drive chain and sprockets
Rekluse Z start pro
Fast Lane Powersports graphics
P3 Carbon pipe guard
GPR V4 steering stabilizer
Powder coated hubs triple trees
Fasst Company Flexx bars
Cycra Racing hand guards
Boyesen stator cover
Boyesen clutch cover
TM Designs chain guides
Thanks for looking and I appreciate the share.
