2009 CRF450 soon to be a gen5 CR500AF...

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:

Can't wait to see the finished product:worthy::thumbsup:

Ahhhh NO....

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

Nice project!

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

Conversion is on hold for another week, just found this today.....

Nice project!

LOL I was thinking the same. WOW! Thats pretty bad!

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

That's gonna look hott with the 500 motor and new style bodywork!!

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?

Yea its Brit!

This will be an awesome project!

Later,
