The problem with 500's, is that there are not alot of aftermarket parts for that size engine. When you start messing around porting and shaving the head, dependability goes down. I would either buy a clutch kit from EPI or Goodwin, get the power you have to the track better. You could also save your money( porting, shaving head, clutch kit), and buy a 600,700,800.
