TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: DENNIS REDDING’S 1987 CR500 1987 HONDA CR500

“I have attached some photos of my “daily driver” 1987 CR500. I run a FMF Gnarly pipe and power core silencer, Excel wheels and powder coated hubs. The suspension is Race Tech gold valves in the rear with an Eibach spring. Front forks are either rebuilt stock with correct springs or I alternate to 2007 Pro Circuit A kit, although the stock stuff is more compliant.” –Dennis Redding.

Through the tunnel, you can see Josh pulling in to talk to the GasGas mechanics to make some suspension tuning.
