    Default Who's running a CR500?

    I wanna see some CR500's A/F or steelies.. I got an '89 that I just got done building and Im thinkin about getting an extra set of hubs to lace up some 17's with. Im still havin a hard time cross referencing newer 4 stroke model honda hubs to see if they will fit with minor mods (for brake reasons).

    But Id like to see what you guys have Supermoto or Dirty..

    Heres my '89, just did all this to it.. It had a rod knock, had to rip her apart.

    New Stock bore Wiseco piston and rings
    Re-honed the cyl
    New Hot Rods connecting rod w/ new upper and lower rod bearings (crank was rebalanced to 0 tollerance)
    New Moose Racing crank bearings
    All new gaskets and seals threw out the motor (inside and out)
    New clutch plates and springs (steels and fibers)
    New FMF Gnarley pipe (more low/mid range power like it needs it)
    New FMF powercore silencer
    New master link
    New moose 2 finger easy pull clutch lever (NOT the inline easy pull garbage)
    New cast 2 finger front brake lever


    Dont know the chick.. just a model for the shoot

    You have couple big bore two stroke freaks right in your neighborhood in Ra-cha-cha. Ones got a wicked evil KX500 (muleman) and one of his crew has a CR500. Both done up in full supermoto style.

    Default Transformed...

    Here's mine. I got it as a mint '97 in dirt trim with a street title. I don't have a pic in dirt trim. Here it is with 19's. It was a fu bike set up like this.


    ...with 17's...


    ...after the RR suspension tune from Traxxion...


    ...current set up with Berg tail section and R1 front fender. This thing is awesome on big tracks...

    ...and finally my old 500af. I was close to converting this one instead, but the steelie already had the street title. I ended up selling that AF for $2500. Wish I still had it...

    is that a SMR front end? I'd like to get some of those forks and pick up another cr500 shock and have it set up like an SRM so I can run some more supermoto tracks next season.
