Default 1991 cr500 what forks are interchangeable

     

Im looking to upgrade the front forks on my 500. What is the newest fork I can put on there that would be a direct bolt on.

You can put any of the newer stuff on. 94 is the last year that you would be able to use your front wheel if I am not mistaken as Honda increased the axle size. in 2004 Honda changed the offset on the lower part of the forks and that requires a different caliper. You can bolt an entire front end on from the newer ones. the 2002-2003 cr250 forks would be my choice, but you will have to find a different front wheel. your old triple clamps will of course have to be changed to the newer ones too.

ossagp, I'm gonna start calling you the guru. Is there anything you don't know man? And I concur with the axle change. And BTW 89 was the first year of the inverted forks, but as noted, later years will be much better.
