CR 500 help?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at a 1994 cr500 for sale in my area, it doesnt run, it has low compression and i downloaded a manual and in trouble shooting it said it could range from a bad plug seal to a bad cylender. he's asking 700, the blue book is 1500, i have the intention of buying, fixing and selling so is it a good deal, i know there rare, and i could get 700 just for the engine but worse case what would i have to put into to fix it, id do all the work my self and anything i cant do i have a friend whos dad is a mechanic. Do you think i should by it? thanks

I'd offer him 500, you'd still be good even if you have to rebuild the top and bottom end and you'd have 1 hellava bike. Worst case senario is the piston shattered which the stock pistons are known to do and got into the crank. Best case new piston rings and a rebore and you'll be good, the cylinders are cast sleeved
