Default CR500 street legal MOTARD!!!!

Just wanted to say hello and get this thread started off right.... I am the Wheeliejones, and I am building a street legal CR500 motard. Eviltwin is my partner in crime. Just wanted to give you guys an update on the progress. Only thing that I am really waiting on is getting the cylinder back for porting and polish and a fresh bore for the new forged piston. Had the head shaved as much as I could get it to run on 100 octane. Should be crazy and really looking forward to riding it. The suspension on the bike is done and will get the new pics up here on Monday.

Second, I have been on a lot of forums and never seen the great welcomes you guys/girls give here. Glad to be here and looking forward to eating some 1000cc street bikes with the CR500.

Thanks again, WHEELIEJONES

That bike is gonna be sick!

Are you going to run the stock wheels and brakes for awhile? I was wondering if you had any luck finding an offsetting bracket for a larger front rotor. With those CRF450 forks, it should'nt be too hard. I have a feeling you're gonna need some stopping power!

Is that last photo you on the track? Outstanding!

Keep us posted on the progress

I have a 320mm rotor and bracket coming for it. Find the front end motard stuff is easy, finding a rear CR500 motard stuff is a pain in the ASS.. Kinda want to find out if a CRF450 rear hub would work in the rear. Any thoughts on that

Hmmmm, don't know. From what I gather, the CR500 is a pain to outfit as a SM, but once it's done there's nothing that will touch it. What knd of disc/caliper comes stock? Standard 200ish mm rotor and Nissin caliper? Best option may be to lace a 17 to the stock hub. Otherwise you may have to have some spacers custom made if you try to fit a talon/aftermarket hub.

Well Talon said they have a hub to fit it now with the correct spacers and ring sets. I am seeing a gold hubs and rims. I am going to go crazy with this SOB!!!!! Just sent out the radiators to Myers to have him upgrade and make them new again. I think this thing will be on the road in about 2 weeks. Really really looking forward to taking this thing around the Lake Berryessa
loop on the BACK WHEEL!!!!

Thanks 1000RR. Heard alittle bit about you from the last run you guys did around the lake. Looking forward to it . Now all I need is a pass from the DMV that the front wheel is impossible to keep on the ground, and not wreckless driving !!!!!!

I'll vouch for you wheelie, don't know if that will help but between the two of us I bet we could sound convincing anyway "honest officer, you just touch the throttle and it paws for the sky, besides I can't afford two new tires"
