Default 84 CR500

     

Picked this up from a friend to race the evolution class here in MX and HS. It's a beast...

Should be a real treat to ride.

It will make you work, for sure. Puts a big grin on my face when it comes on the pipe.

Raced an HS with it this past weekend. It was an hour and a half of abusive fun.

Pretty much bone stock. FW weight, double base gasket, flat slide carb, etc. are needed. I have a friend that does Rekluse setups for these as well.

You must be a strong guy. I have never had a bike so hard to kick as the 84 CR.
I only rode the bike a few times, but if I were to keep the one I had I would have had to make the shock work better. I remeber trying to accelerate hard and the rear end felt as if the shock was switched for a ridge frame like a harley chopper.
I've never ridden a vintage hare scramble but I bet it's a blast. I'll bet Florida hare scrambles are full of whoops and tree roots. Is your bike have a drum front to make you legal for a certain class?

Has to be air cooled, drum brake and pre-88 to race my class. That is an 83 XR350 front wheel.

Race MX on her a couple of weeks ago. Won both motos for the overall, but the crank bearings are toast now.

Won the Evo class at an FTR MX a few weeks ago, but now she needs crank bearings. Held together to the end, but was vibrating terribly.

I have a 91 CR 500 that I let my buddy ride at Hollister... Needless to say he looped it and now I need a new left side radiator..he might be looking at some knee surgery. Any way I tore the bike down to the bones and now I want to project it back to killer form. Rear shock is off to get a rebuild and the rest of the bike is getting cleaned and tuned. I'm looking for ideas on tricking it out in the reassembly process. All input is welcome

How much of your money would you like me to spend?
Here's what I would go with at a mininum: crank balanced by Surf N Turf racing, Eric Gorr MoBetta port work, 96+ CR500 suspension (forks, shock, triple clamps, wheel, front axle and front caliper carrier are all needed). You can also fit newer twin chamber forks from the later model Hondas for a bit more improvement. I bought 98 model components for my 91 but I have another direction I'll be going on that one once it's time to start reassembly If your PJ carb is worn out a 38mm PWK is a nice upgrade.
Depending on your riding style there are a lot of other things you can do as well. I have my 91 torn down to the frame at the moment, once I can free up some funding it will be getting some motor love and the frame repaired and powder coated. Mine is going to be a street legal dual sport when it's reincarnated.

Lots in store for the 91 I have... it's going to be KILLER once I pull it all together. The 90 I have now is so I can get my 500 fix while I work on the 91. I'm hoping here real soon to get some seat time on the 90 and if I like it good enough I'm going to sell my 06 YZ-F to fund the 91 project (since I spent most of the cash I'd been saving for the 91 to buy the 90 )

The 500 is back together and running strong. Been having a blast riding it; will probably race another hare scramble on it soon.

Love this old bike.
