2001 CR500 motor in 1997 CR250 Frame with CRF450 forks. Street titled.
It took me about two years to finally get it right. Crazy fun on the streets especially in urban areas.

Before:


After:




Motor:
The motor it tight and right so I didn’t make any changes.
FMF exhaust cleaned up
Newish Honda header
Radiator
Devol Aluminum Radiator Guard. I think I bought the last one on earth...
Uni air filter
Wirtz aluminum shift lever
Boyesen ignition cover and clutch cover
Chain roller

Body and Suspension:
Acerbis Supermoto Front fender modified
FX seat cover
ProMoto aluminum kickstand shortened 1.5”
CRG blind sight mirror
Renthal bars
Grips
Gas tank covered in Gaffers tape. Don’t try to paint or wrap it.
Aluminum gas cap
Racetech fork springs
Fork seals
Fork guards
Pro Circuit Rear Shock
Mud flap
License plate guard to prevent oil splattered license plate. Brake cleaner will remove the oil and the paint on the numbers :/


Electric:
Trailtech voltage regulator
Trailtech Hi/low and kill switch
Polisport HALO headlight/cowl
Edge2 Taillight and plate holder

Wheels and Brakes:
Excel wheels with stainless spokes. Thanks FasterUSA
Honda hubs blasted. Turned out so nice.
Rear axle and collars. The collars on the bike did not match the axle :/
Front and rear wheel bearings
Conti attack Supermoto tires
Sunstar rear sprocket but continues wheelies in every gear...
Front EBC supermoto 320 rotor kit
EBC front and rear EBC brake pads
Rear Galfer wave rotor
Front and rear Galfer stainless brake lines
Brake and clutch reservoir covers
Rear brake reservoir
Rear caliper rebuilt

The paint is Krylon Fusion. Durable and looks really good. I painted the tank twice only to find out you cannot paint these tanks. Had a guy wrap it with heavy duty 3M wrap and that bubbled as well. I saw some gaffers tape on a carpeted floor one day and week later my tank was covered.

This was a fun build. Neighbors hate it. Everyone else love it.
