Well I sold it years ago, my CR anyway. Saw an add for one just had to read it. Mine sold on reputation alone (bad ass bike). This guy, well the add speaks for itself.

Twin 2014 TW200's made side by side on the assembly line, Moose rear racks, Protaper ATV high bars, DG oval pipes, kick starters, rejetted carbs, 130 main jets, 2 -3 -.020 shims on the needles and @ 2 1/2 turns on the pilot screw, #34 pilot jets, Acerbis hand guards, Shinko 241 front tires, modified Krator foot pegs, 14-55t sprockets, Ricochet skid plates and 90 degree fuel filters.
ROTFLMAO! Sounds like the perfect bike for a strong woman. Momma always said balls and men just get in the way and trip ya up. A strong woman knows ya don't earn loyalty by chaining something down, you treat it with respect and love and it will carry you through to the end.
CR 480 was enough for me...I think they were both around 50 HP and 220 lbs....
They are amazing machines. A guy I know had (may actually still have) both a CR500 and a KX500. I never rode the CR but I did go for a spin on the KX once. I learned real quick that once was pretty much enough for me but God was it awesome

I was donking around on my friends Maico 490 Mega thinking...This is a real nice bike...Lots of low end and it handles great. My buddy yells at me to give it more than half throttle. Ok....So I'll just twist it a little more and.........."OH SHHHHHIIIIIIIIIITTTTT!!!! Turns out it did make a little more power than my RM-125.
I often dream of "really" riding one again as in all out over the doubles. The new 701 I have has way more HP, almost 80 but it doesn't come on like those old CR's they came on like a big bore chain saw that just wanted to eat dirt

That is one funny ad. I'd go to see the bike just to get to talk to the guy.
