  1. Awesome review! I had a 86 CR500 loved that bike and wish I still had it… I didn’t realize how good it was till it was gone….. I beat a Husaberg 601 (thumper) I think it was a 601 I could be wrong it could have been 604 big yellow bike with kicker on left side and sounded mean as hell… The ol cr 500 smoked that Husaberg….I would eat New 450’s all day lol see ya!!!! 86 CR 500 is the king!

  2. Had an 85 used to trail ride with it crack the throttle and leave a50ft trench. Didnt like to start when hot i can still remember kicking that pig over and over on a hot muggy day. Can still remember the severe arm pump and not being able to feel my hands from vibration after a ride.
