Possible cr500AF build?

Recommended Posts

So might be trading my trx450 for a 2001 cr500 that is in great shape. i also have a 2007 crf250r 4 stroke that the previous owner took no care of maintence on the engine so basicaly it needs a complete head/valve job. if i get the cr500 i was thinking of pulling the 250f motor out of the crf and putting in the 500 2stroke in. i have always been a huge fan of the cr500af and would love to do this project. Could someone give me a breakdown of what i will need to do the swap? i know the Y has to been cut and moved up on the crf frame but is there a measurement to go by? Is there a kit i can buy that will include the front motor mounts, coil mount and rear swing arm spacers and anything else that might be needed for the swap.? any tips would be great.

i am thinking about parting out all the crf250r parts that wont be needed. like the engine, it acually a 2008 250 engine that was that replaced the 2007 and the kid just never shimmed the valves so it beat itself up. It has a full Yosimura dual exhaust and would also like to sell the carb. could someone tell me what a fair price i should ask for these parts? is there anything else i can pull off the bike and sell that wont be needed for the cr500 engine?

Engine, carb & electronics won't be needed from the 250F. Check out cr500riders.com and bannedcr500riders.com for specifics on what will need to be done.

MXDogger has done some really clean CRF250 conversions and may be able to source mounts, headstay, etc, for you.

Best of luck. :smirk:

I have seen kits on ebay regularly containing Y piece mounts etc. go for a look there.

Can also part most of the cr500 chassis. You can easily get enough money together to make a nasty cr500af.

Don't get to excited. Cr500 rollers/parts are pretty common and parting them out is a PITA imo.

I think you might have emailed me earlier today about it?

      Kicking around the idea of selling my CR250. I have other bikes and never get a chance to ride this one.

      This is a well-maintained bike with tons of aftermarket parts. It's set up primarily for woods/single-track riding, but will still do just fine on an MX track.

      Engine:
      -Fresh Pro-X top end(<1 hour)
      -FMF Gnarly pipe & FMF Shorty silencer(<1 hour on fresh packing)
      -PWK Air-Striker Carburetor(bought new from JD Jetting last year)
      -Steahy 10oz. Flywheel Weight
      -Boyesen Rad Valve with Carbon-fiber reeds
      -TwinAir air filter

      Misc:
      -Excel Pro-Series Wheels(19"/21")
      -Brand-new Shinko tires(546 Front, 505 Cheater Rear not mounted yet) w/ Heavy-duty tubes
      -Works Connection Radiator Guards
      -Skid Plate
      -FMF Factory 909 Handlebars
      -Polished Frame
      -Sunstar 13/51 Steel Sprockets(new in box)

      I'm sure I'm missing a few odds and ends. Comes with a Bill of Sale only. (708)287-1998 - Dave

      Hello,
      I could not seem to find a similar thread so if one exists I apologize. I have an 02 cr250r with an 01 motor. I need to buy a new silencer with a spark arrestor because the current one does not have one. I am not sure if the owner before me used an 01 or 02 silencer because I have read the frame had significant changes from 01 to 02. Any thoughts? Thanks!

      I want to restore a 1996 cr80 that doesn’t have any graphics and absolutely love the 1994 cr125r tank shroud graphics, I can’t seem to find anything that fits the cr80 with those graphics. I found one last week but lost the page and couldn’t track it down again, do the cr125r graphics fit the cr80 tank shrouds? or does anyone know where someone could make them for cheap or know about any in Australia

      Hey guys,
       
      Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb?  I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle.  I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first.  I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
       
      Thanks a lot
