2009 CRF450 soon to be a gen5 CR500AF...

Recommended Posts

I picked up another CR500AF project last week, a 2009 CRF450 with a bigtime blown motor. Frame is going off next week to be modded to fit my 1987 CR500 motor :thumbsup::blah::ride:

Rod broke, piston broke, jug broke, cases broke..... Its broke......

i saw i kx 450f that did that about a year ago, its still not fixed, will cost about $2000, see 4 strokes are good for something, now theres lots of cheap bikes out there just waiting for 500af conversions

You can fix that engine, JB weld.:thumbsup:

Nice project!

Good luck with your conversion - I would love to have a 500AF! Someday when I'm famous.

That is going to be a sweet 500! How much might one expect to pay for a late model rolling CRF chassis with a fudged motor. I've been contemplating a transplant for my great running 98 cr250 motor. I've been looking around for an 06 or 07 CR chassis but maybe the CRF is the way to go. Anybody out there have any experiences to share?
