    Steahly Flywheel weight CR500

    I have the 13 oz weight on my bike and it's all good - no stalling, lug the engine in 3rd in corners, smooths the power out for the less-skilled.

    Lights For My Cr500r

    I'll happily sell you an unused Service Honda ignition and CRF250X lighting set up from my Service Honda AF. I put the bike into R configuration for motocross and GPs and I doubt I'll ever need to put the lights back on. Beware though the digital ignition and heavier flywheel mean you need to be a big guy to give the kick it needs to fire up.... ...send me a PM if interested.

    '83 CR480 pipes

    I have tried the PFR pipe and silencer combo, but I don't think these pipes are being made anymore. I do have a VGC one for sale now my CR480R is gone. PM me if interested.

    cr125 to a 250 or 500

    Particularly when cold, the CR500R likes to be "primed". Just slowly kick it over 2-3 times, then find peak compression and ease the kick starter past that point. Then let it come back up top and give it the biggest kick you can. I am short and do this balanced on a crate for leverage. Starting will be 1-2 kicks. Stock ignition + crisp jetting helps.

    cr125 to a 250 or 500

    This bike is the dogs bollocks. The CR500R motor is far more flexible than people make out. The are no awards for ringing it out like a 125 and ending up on your head. I have seen the bike above being trail-ridden just fine. TT's work is top notch and Mike F very helpful. Give them a call, but he will talk you into a conversion....

    Works Radiator Brace / Guard

    From personal experience, I would recommend going with radiator cages that transfer any blow directly to the frame....
  14. http://www.bannedcr500riders.com Look in the AF section of the forum. There is a guy there who has put a kit on his CR500R.

    Never ridden a 2 stroke, help!

    I am prejudiced, but recommend the following... Visit http://www.cr500riders.com and http://www.bannedcr500riders.com and read up about getting a CR500R engine into your CR2F50X frame. The Gen-4 conversion is easier than most and you will find advice about a self-build, getting your frame modified right up to buying a complete bike. Don't get spooked about the reputation of the CR500R it can be short-shifted and ridden completely in control or you can open it up and hold on! There are folks who offer a porting job that makes it smooth enough for trail-riding. Check it out. Your bike with a CR500R engine!
