Service Honda, XR650R engine in a CRF450X like your CR500AFX

Post  AURORA on Thu Jan 08, 2009 3:39 am

This what I sent to Aj Waggoner at Service Honda:

Aj,

Thank you again for taking the time for giving me a tour of your shop. I watched the Service Honda used bike section and never saw the CR500AFX with the Motard wheels for sale.

What I would like to know is, have you considered shoehorning a XR650R engine into a CRF450X like your CR500AFX conversion? Is this possible?

Thank you,

Bob

Yep, the engine is the heavy part, not the frame

The updated suspension would be nice. AJ Waggoner of Service Honda fame, i.e. CR500AF, is going to look into it.

He said it would be an interesting bike.
