              RD-LC / RZ are water cooled with a powervalve.

              That's an RD.. Old school-style..

                Actually it is a 465 Single (air cooled).
                Should get some looks with that combination. '84 RZ chassis.

                    Having previously owned a ported WR500 (YZ490 motor, basically) I can tell you first hand it will vibrate like mad and that you will have extreme difficulty keeping the front end down

                    2 things those old iron linered 2 smokers respond well to. Head reshaping/squish band adjoostment by someone who knows will make it run without pinging on pump gas and allow you to jet it closer to where it should be.

                    The 2nd thing is a good matching of the iron cylinder liner to the ports. They are notorious for being off. Smoothing that out makes them really run "happy". I had this work done on my WR and it kicked major ass. CR and KX500's had nothing on it.

                    Damn. I kinda miss that bad ass WR of mine. It laughed at hills

                      Now that is the REAL dark side...feeling drawn back there myself, just been offered this... more details when I have them...

                          Ya, I can tell you firsthand with the short little ride around the block and up and down the driveway, it is a stupid combo. The thing is sick, I mean SICK!!!

                          I might go through the motor this winter, just to check things out. I rebuilt the crank last fall with a rod kit and threw in a Wiseco. I did clean up the ports and bead blast it all, but couldn't find any info about porting and squish clearance and band width. If you have any info to share, that would be great. Not too many guys fooling around with these things. It has run great this year in my dirtbike but the chassis is just too outdated for me to keep up to my friends that are hardcore dirtsicle riders. Mabye I will e-mail you so we don't take up all the TL guys space

                            Its an RD500LC, squeezed into a TZR250 reverse cylinder frame, with a 916 swinger... and its cheap...

                            My first big bike was an RZV500R (Jap market ally frame version), and my third was an RD500LC... I've been resisting the temptation to buy another because in comparison to modern stuff it wouldn't measure up, and I don't want to ruin the nostalgia.

                            This, however, would be the same but different, if you see what I mean... I need another bike like I need a Grand Piano... can't afford it, no room for it, no time to play with it, but if this one is right I think I'll bite...

                            I'm sure the other guys won't mind us going on about our stinkwheel perversions, but maybe it should be moved to the open forum??

                              two strokes are just too much fun.. I had and RZ but sold it. You can stick an FZ600 aluminium swingarm on the back of the RZ chassis and fit the 3.5 rear wheel then (the 4 is a little too big). You just have to make your own dogbones from some allthread and heim joints..
