    Finished the 500r PICS

    Well i finally more or less finished the 500, for now anyways! I took it out on the ice on saturday and i am more than happy at the moment with the power it has. I definatly have to swap my +8 swingarm in. Comes up way too easily the way it is. Let me know what you guys think. Also i can say the myth about the vibrattion is just that, a myth. It vibrates a little bit more than a 250 but its not that bad at all.

    it is believed that a 500R was in the prototype phase at Honda Japan in '87 when the decree went into effect. it is also believed it was stolen as well, I cannot confirm either one of these possibilities but I know they have been cussed and discussed on these forums before.

    Hi that must be crazy to ride. I have a 1986 kawasaki kx500 works replica and the power is great. It is not jerky with a wild hit. It just has a lot of power everywhere. It is a beast to start. How hard is the cr500 engine to start? What year engine did you use?

    Very nice job , that 500r motor is going to chew up the fuel in your short track tank pretty quick.
