When mounting a CR500R motor in a CRF 450 Frame, the rear engine mount that the swingarm pivot shaft goes through is more narrow than the CRF engine mount. This leaves the shaft and to some extent, the bearings exposed. I had some brass bushings cut to cover the exposed areas. Attached are pictures and a drawing with the dimensions of the bushings.

Buddy of mine bought an entire bike lot and has these gems in there. Helping him sell the bike. Will answer questions as I know it.
XR400 Decal on the tank needs to be replaced. Probably doesn't have 200 hours on it. $2000
XR650L is just awesome. Metal tank is dent free and paint is incredible. $4000
PM me and let's find these beauties a new home.
I recently purchased a 2002 Honda cr250 two stroke. I am in the process of fixing somethings before riding season to make sure its ready to go. I have not rode a dirt bike since I owned a 70. I understand how to ride a manual and I did ride my friends late 80s four stroke 350 about a month ago once and I did pretty good considering not riding a manual before. I did stall a few times but I went through all the gears and went about 60mph on the road. That being said, he did say this cr250 is wicked compared to that bike. I was just wondering what you guys think and any tips for me?
Thanks in advance!
Hi all, a little wile ago I was riding my crf250 and the gear shifter started vibrating a little bit, so I shifted down a gear but as soon as I did that it was like the gears were going crazy inside and the gear shifter was going crazy. After turning the bike off and then starting it back up the bike ran fine for a couple of hours of riding until it started to happen every time I shift down a gear. I can shift fine up to 5th gear but as soon as I shift down this happens.
Any idea of what this could be please let me know?
