    POSTED FOR KEN OCONNOR RACING:



    The first person to answer all of the questions correctly wins. It’s as simple as that. But it’s not that simple.
    These questions won’t be easy as I know how smart you guys are and I want to see you suffer. LOL. Best advice I can give you is to study!

    The Prizes:
    Your choice of 1

    1. A KOR ported cylinder, KOR redesigned head, KOR bore job, Brand new piston (you choose), OEM top end gasket set, and a top end bearing. The winner needs to ship their cylinder and head to my shop. I’ll pay up to $25 to ship it to me.

    2. A full wrap of custom KOR graphics from TEK GRAFIX. Tyler’s work can be seen on all of my Blasters and race bikes. You can also see his work at tekmx.com. Your imagination is the limit. He can do graphics for anything so make and model doesn’t matter. A full wrap lists for $210.

    3. $125 of KOR bucks that you can spend any way you like in my shop or on kenoconnorracing.com
    Keep in mind that I sell parts for all makes and models and work on everything from Blasters to Harley Davidson’s.

    I will also pay up to $25 to return your prize.

    nice try to the rest of you guys, it was not easy and i'm sure at least that last one involved a good guess and a little luck.

    btw...ken told me he played all the instruments in that last vid except the drums, that was a drum machine beat.

    Thank you everyone, especially Ken. I am so pumped up to get my motor ported by KOR. I didn't think I had a chance as I had to work today and you guys got the jump on the contest. Number twenty had me stumped and I guessed, as I saw that Ken plays guitar. I tried using my daughter's I-phone and using the song recognition software, but it was clueless. I figured I better guess to at least have a chance. Awesome contest thank you so much for having it.
