I went riding the other day. My friend was riding his beloved 84 XR500 . We had a good time. At the end of the day we could not resist a drag race.  Now to be fair my 79 has a weisco 12:1 piston & im burning 94 octane fuel. His 84 is stock except for supertrapp & jetting. to be honest it was not much of a race. The 79 Killed it ! I would have expected the newer rfvc design to be really quick but I guess not. Ive seen inside those motors & I feel that there is a lot of better things  like gear driven counter balancers vrs chain. Dry sump. Oil pump is driven off the crank i believe. everything better except maybe the head design. Now the bike design is really no comparison . his has Mono shock. Nice & tall with lots of smooth suspension. Better brakes etc. But the old twin shock is way cooler.
