Just got done building this Cr500af. It's a 2004 crf250 with 01 cr500 motor. What you guys think?

None at all friend if mine did all the fab work on it and everthing fits perfectly. Only thing I noticed is I also have a 01 cr500 steel frame and this one with aluminum frame vibrates way more than the steel frame.

That's so sweet looking. I'll have to get a 500 two stroke one of these days.

Wow dude, you're lucky you saw that before breaking yourself off!
I thought your bike was sick when you posted it, hope you can get it fixed up soon.

Possibly consider buying the billet CP500 Y piece when you do this again?

Instead of a straight weld across, I've seen people do it at an angle to get more "surface area" in the weld.

If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.
